Owen O'Brien's Blanshard B & B is a wonderfully comfortable, modern, and welcoming countryside retreat. We regularly attend the Straford Shakespeare Festival, and find that Owen's place is the most comfortable and relaxing B & B of the many that we have enjoyed. St. Marys is a lovely, old-fashioned Ontario town that offers many amenities of its own, just adding...

Very nice and clean Bed & Breakfast very close to the beautiful town of St. Marys. Owen the owner was fantastic with everything, dinner, breakfast. His meals were fabulous. I would recommend to anyone who needs somewhere to stay if in the area! Definition of a home away from home :)

Some friends and I (groomsmen and groom) recently stayed at the Blanshard B&B prior to a wedding in London. The establishment was clean and up-to-date and felt very much like home. Owen was a cheerful, personal and hospitable host (and fabulous chef I might add) and made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was a delicious spread and Owen made quite...

This was our second visit to Owen O'Brien's bright, cheery and comfortable home, built as a B&B less than a decade ago, with its two upstairs rooms, tastefully decorated with Inuit paintings that he collected while teaching in Northern Ontario. Each room has a queen bed (one has a twin as well) and adjacent full bathroom, looking out on to...

what a lovely place to come to after a night at the theater! We've stayed at several B&B's in Stratford over the years, but when our favorite was sold to new ownership, we began to look around for a new "home-away-from-home". What a pleasant surprise it was to find that we could have a "Beautiful" view, with a peaceful, quiet...

If you are going to Stratford and don't want to pay a fortune for a B+B but want a lovely place to stay, this is your place. It's about 20 minutes out in the country, outside of the lovely town of St Mary's in farm country. The house is new but in the traditional style, with the characteristic white limestone...

Peaceful and quaint, Blanshard B & B is minutes outside of St. Marys, Ontario, a beautiful little town on the outskirts of Stratford, home of the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. Blanshard's host offers a wonderful, filling breakfast and St. Marys has a...

Owen O'Brien, the creator, owner, host and chef at Blanshard B & B, provides guests with delightful accommodations in a pastoral Ontario farm country setting. The rooms are clean, airy, and comfortable; the breakfasts are delicious, where one will encounter well prepared and unique breakfast cuisine; and the conversation is stimulating. If you are in the Stratford/St. Marys (St. Mary's)...

“Both rooms are wonderful. We stayed in the King room, which has a Beautiful view out both the washroom and the bedroom. The bed is amazingly comfortable. Sometimes it takes me a couple nights to get used to a bed, but Owen's is so comfortable, I fell asleep right away on the first night.”
