Like our grand 18th century architecture nestled alongside picturesque Little Falls, downtown St. Marys is truly big on small. Year-round we proudly celebrate our Canadian small town heritage, extend unrushed warm local hospitality, and courteously provide unique accessible professional customer services – those little things that are becoming harder to find these days.

Yes, our historic Stonetown businesses are a touch old-fashioned still offering friendly personal assistance, free parking, and never too busy to share a bit of small talk. But in many big ways our charming downtown is also soul renewing.

Come unwind within our cozy specialty shops bursting with contemporary and timeless curiosities, relax in our family-run eateries and cafes, rejuvenate at our wellness spas and hair salons, engage in our community events, or simply stroll beautiful downtown St. Marys appreciating all its natural splendour.

In St. Marys you will become big on small, too.


“Stratford itself is the type of walkable wholesome town Rodgers and Hammerstein might write a musical about.”
