We stayed at the D & K Shady Nook on a trip to the Stratford Festival during the weekend of October 11 and 12. We chose this location, as it was within walking distance to the theatres. We had notified D & K that we wanted to use their bikes, so that when we arrived, Doug had the bicycles ready for our use. We biked around the Lake Victoria area, stopping to see the swans on the lake. Later that evening, we easily walked from the D & K to the town center to have dinner and attend a play at the Avon Theatre. I think this would be a great place for a group of couples to stay. It is quiet, far enough away from the noise of the center city and close enough to walk to all theaters.

Our goal is to be helpful to our guests and meet their needs, having great people come to our B&B makes the business a pleasure to be part of. Glad we where able to be of service during your visit to Stratford, and thanks for the lift to pick up our van Dave. Hope to see you both next season.

I've already written a glowing review but I forgot to mention the incredible hospitality they extended to my group that included Dorothy T & Suzann D. When we left at 5:45 AM, they were there with coffee & muffins. I understand this is not always available but for the long time return customers, they do go the extra miles. And, their pool is wonderful. We were there in late August when the weather was quite warm and the pool was a glorious treat. Again, great rooms, location and hospitality.

Having stayed here previously, so we returned and enjoyed our stay. Good location as we enjoy walking and can do so to all Stratford Play houses. The White's are friendly, as is their cutie dog, Sadie. Clean, quiet, and surrounded by very pretty flower beds. Breakfast is always tasty and plentiful. No reason not to return!

You are a fine group of ladies with tons of experience in travel and it is great you find our B&B and Sadie to meet your standards. We are looking forward to your group returning in 2014, the pool will be open, the wine cooled and lots of good food. All our best

I have been staying with Doug and Kathy every year since 1990, and every year I look forward to seeing them again and staying in their home. Lovely bedrooms, comfortable home, with such kind, helpful hosts. Whether you use the pool, sit on the front porch or back deck to read and enjoy their beautiful flowers, or sit in their living room sipping wine and discussing the plays when you come in at night, you will feel so welcomed, so at home. And it's a wonderful location, a pleasant walk to any of the theatres. We have our reservations for next year, and I am already looking forward to being there again! Dorothy T.
