A very nice place to chill out. Bicycles and canoes are available for free use. Free wifi. Nice couch in room. Only basic cable TV. Nice trails, but infested with mosquitoes. Great water fowl entertainment.

Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback! Unfortunately we are no longer able to fog for mosquitoes as that has been banned, however we do provide bug spray for free in the front office! Ben Schelhaas Manager

this is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Stratford. The grounds are amazing. you can relax, kayak, hike, have a fire and the staff are very helpful and accomodating. Why stay downtown when you can get back to nature at the Forest Motel?

I enjoyed the fact that the Forest Motel was outside town, but just a 5 minute drive to the theatres. We could walk in the forest and use the canoes. The room felt like a cabin in the woods, which I really enjoyed.
