Went to Stratford's Shakespeare festival for a three day, three play visit. Shelley's perfect B&B was the ideal place to stay. It is spotless, comfortable, and charming. Breakfasts are scrumptious, and the portions will keep you hunger-free until your early pre-theater dinner. Shelly is a warm and considerate host. Highly recommended.
Headed to Stratford for two sleeps and they were grand at Buckingham House. Comfort, Peace and a nice breakfast both mornings was the perfect getaway. We will be back next year for sure. Thanks Shelley - it was a good respite for us in our most favourite town. You have thoughtful touches and everything was perfect for us. (We went out for the day and when we came back our room was re-made up = a total surprise) AND I got to have a picture taken with the resident Vespa!!!
Stratford for the festival is a pretty special place so we were delighted to couple our theatre experience with a stay in this perfect bed and breakfast. It had everything we needed in a B&B - lovely Victorian home, warm and helpful host and our own bathroom! We were easy walking distance to downtown, one of the theatres and both restaurants we visited. I also spent some down time in the beautiful gardens. There are three bedrooms here - two have internal ensuite while the third (where we stayed) has a private bathroom on it's doorstep. We will request one of the other two in the future but if they're not available we'd happily stay in the third again. This will become our new first choice when we visit.
The Buckingham House in Stratford, Ontario, deserves more than five stars. The B&B has three lovely guestrooms on the second floor of a historic home. There is also a common room and a small balcony overlooking the garden on the second floor. Everything is very clean and perfectly decorated with antique furniture. We had the room with the private bathroom across the hall with a bathtub/shower combination. We loved this room which was a bit small, but we found good places to put our large suitcases without a problem. The other two rooms have ensuite bathrooms. The driveway has three parking spaces which allow free parking for each room. The garden is beautiful with lovely flowers and a comfortable seating area. Breakfast was truly amazing. It was freshly prepared and beautifully presented . There were fresh baked goods and fruit every day along with a prepared entrée of eggs, quiche, pancakes or other amazing food. We have stayed at many B&B's, but this was the most beautiful breakfast I have ever been served. Location is also excellent. It is a short walk to the Avon and Studio theaters and the many downtown restaurants. It is a bit longer walk to the Festival theater, but we had no problem walking there several times. Kudos to Shelly, who is a remarkable hostess. The stay could not have been better!…
Shelly's home and gardens are beautiful! You can enjoy reading a book surrounded by lovely gardens, take a quiet moment on an upstairs porch, enjoy a delicious and generous breakfast, have great conversations with Shelly (ask about monarch butterflies, fascinating!), and stay in a spacious room and with a very comfortable bed. An added bonus was that we only had short walks to the theatres, and restaurants. We will definitely return to stay with Shelly!
