Under new ownership, Amanda and John made our weekend retreat an amazing experience. It was our first time going to the Stratford Festival and definitely won't be our last. The house is gorgeous, beds are extremely comfortable and the hospitality is outstanding! We stayed two nights in the Bali suite and were pampered in luxury. We had originally booked the Poppy room but because they had availability our hosts upgraded us to the suite for our anniversary at no extra charge. Each morning we were awoken to the smell of fresh baked goods and pipping hot coffee and tea. John makes the best homemade granola I've ever tasted! Everything theatre related is easily within walking distance as well as a variety of shopping and eateries. Amanda booked all our restaurant reservations and provided us with everything we needed to know about Stratford. We were so pleased with our decision to stay at the Avery House and look forward to it being a yearly getaway retreat.

Room Tip: If it is in your budget, upgrade to one of the suites. It is so worth the extra space and private ba...

Thank you for being our first guests as the new owners of Avery House, and thanks for the positive feedback! It was a pleasure hosting you both on your special anniversary weekend. We are both so happy that you got to enjoy a little time on your own, and that restaurant recommendations worked out. Pleased that you liked the granola, and that the recipe will keep you going until you can return again! Enjoy the summer.

My husband and I spent out honeymoon at the Avery House, and we wouldn't trade those memories for anything. The house is beautifully appointed and decorated, and spotless. The breakfasts are great, and there's always granola on hand if you're not up to the richer options. When Judy and Sue found out we were just married, they upgraded us to their most glamorous suite and lent us a lovely vase for my bouquet. When I came down with the flu, they appeared with toast and ginger ale. They treat their guests like family.

My wife and I have been going to the Stratford Festival for many years with a group of friends, and we are so glad to have found Avery House. Beautiful, comfortable bedrooms; fabulous breakfasts that set you up for the day; easy walks to all the theaters and restaurants. Plus Judy & Sue are the consummate hosts.

A group of us take over the 5 bedrooms in the main house. This allows us to sit up late at night talking about the shows we saw, drinking wine and eating cheese we've stashed in the house fridge, and not feel at all guilty about the noise. Sue's breakfasts are a multi course event (yogurt and fruit, and then various hot things like frittata, croissants, scrambled eggs, etc.). Judy runs the logistics wonderfully; always responsive to reservations and keeping that wifi going!

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Avery House, and it was spectacular. We stayed in the Loft, which was comfortable in every way- beautifully decorated, top-quality linens, quiet, private, and completely equipped with everything we could think of. We got to peek at some of the other rooms, and they were also decorated and arranged in the same great manner. The food is simply superb-- on most days we had such a big breakfast we skipped lunch and just had dinner in town before seeing a show. The owners, Judy and Sue, never let us leave for the day without making sure we had what we needed. They were always ready with recommendations for restaurants, shops, and other things we wanted to see and do. When it was time to see a show, Avery is not more than a 10 minute walk, if that, from any of the Stratford Theatres. We parked the car when we arrived and didn't think of using it once since everything is such an easy walk from there. If you stay anywhere else, you'll be cheating yourself out of something really extraordinary. And kudos to the other guests who all added to the great time we had. Chatting at breakfast was wonderful, comparing notes about plays or even talking about how much fun it is to sit at the river's edge and read a book-- the conversation was excellent. This was our first visit, but will not be our last!

First time to Stratford and Avery House made the experience even more memorable. We stayed in the the Loft Room. Beautifully decorated and had amenities (sink, mini-fridge, microwave, dishes, cutlery). We could sit on our private deck and enjoy our wine and cheese. Breakfast was delicious and filling! Enjoyed meeting and chatting with the other guests over fresh croissants and quiche. The location is perfect too - in walking distance to the performances, river, and shops. Thanks so much Judy and Sue!
