Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)

Built in 1873, in the then popular Italianate architectural style, “Legacy House” is located at 135 Church Street in Stratford. This is a prime residential area of Stratford and a short walking distance from downtown Stratford, theatres, shops and restaurants.

The house was given a Heritage Designation in 1988 under the Ontario Heritage Act of 1974. Its exterior features include decorative brick details, high windows, overhanging eaves and period wooden bracket trim. Over the years interior renovations have brought the amenities up to date while preserving several original features and the house's inherent charm. It includes elaborate wooden trims, high ceilings, original crown mouldings in the grand living and dining room as well as the entrance hallway and more. Outside, a nice porch, wooden swing and pleasant garden offer guests quiet places to relax and enjoy the weather.

The house interior décor has been recently changed to reflect the host's love for the arts. The rooms are decorated based on an “artistic dreams” theme including Theatre, Painting, Music and Writing. A selection of books and CDs is placed in each room for guests to relax at their leisure in a more private environment. Note as well that the house is fully air conditioned to ensure your comfort during the hot days of summer.

Gourmet breakfast is served in the grand dining and living room on the main floor. This room is also available for our guests’ relaxation and conversation. Historical books on theatre, architecture, furniture as well as information on Stratford events and activities are available for our guests’ enjoyment. Guests can also watch TV in the living room or enjoy a selection of DVDs, CDs or games. A phone and a laptop with wireless internet are available for guests’ needs as well.

An ideal location for your next stay in Stratford!
