Steps from downtown in a beautiful setting. I've been enjoying Stratford vacations for 20 years. LIttle did I know what I was missing, until this year when I found River Garden House. The icing on the cake. Warm and inviting hosts welcomed me into their home. Comfortable Beds, wonderful breakfast, beautiful Garden by the water to sit and have a...

This was a first trip to Stratford for my husband and me. Our stay at the River Garden House B&B was a large part of our enjoyment of this lovely town. We arrived 3 hours too early for check-in and the previous guests were just leaving our room. No worries, Christina offered us some coffee and accompanied us to the...

Christine and George are warm, welcoming and very accommodating hosts - even when changing the time of breakfast for us at the last minute so that we could get to the Backstage Tour without rushing! Christine insisted on helping us with getting my luggage upstairs, and they were very gracious about accommodating the dietary restrictions for one of my friends....

The best part of my trip to Stratford, Ontario was my stay at River Garden House B&B. This gorgeous house built in the 1800s is owned by a lovely Greek couple who are extremely friendly and welcoming. It is elaborately decorated and includes all the amenities one could ask for including wifi, air conditioning, strong water pressure, big fluffy bath...

As a first time visitor to Stratford for the Shakespeare festival, my visit would not have been the same without my stay at this B&B! This was my first ever B&B stay, and I was not disappointed! George and Christine were wonderful and made me feel right at home. I stayed in room 4 in the twin bed and had...

Recently we stayed with George & Christine at River Garden in Stratford. They were the perfect B&B hosts : available when needed, but discrete the rest of the time. We were greeted by their very charming teenage son who carried our bags to the room. The house is a charming century house, a perfect B&B close to all amenities in...

Upon my arrival I was warmly greeted by George who immediately took my luggage and gave me a bit of a tour of the dining & living area. We ascended the grand staircase to the room where he deposited my suitcase and proceeded to show me, through a maze of hallways, the upstairs kitchen with full electric stove and refrigerator...

We were excited to finally get to stay at this B&B - lovely location, fabulous garden and friendly and helpful hosts. The shared kitchenette with fridge and dishes is really useful, especially as Stratford as some super take away picnic food outlets. Eating in the garden was so relaxing. Unfortunately we visited when there was a heat wave and so...

My sister and I visited Stratford for an overnight getaway and had a fabulous stay at River Garden House B and B! We stayed in Room 1 which had 2 double beds and an ensuite. The room was a nice size, the beds were comfy and our ensuite was sufficient. The gardens and outside sitting areas were so pretty and...

We stayed at this B&B last summer in the room with the lovely view of the river. The location of the home is wonderful as you can walk to and from the Stratford plays without having to use the car. Location is what you are paying for and to me it is worth it! The home itself is lovely, but...
