The Chisholms in Stratford
Ranked #12 of 88 Stratford B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 July 2012

We picked the Chisholms based on the great reviews, and it didn't disappoint. Stayed in the Red Room, which is very nicely appointed. There are lots of lovely little touches--the picture taken on arrival, great coffee machine. Very friendly hosts. Location is great--walking distance to all the theatres, and about a five minute walk from the Old Prune, a great spot for fine dining.

Lovely bed and breakfast, is a walking distance of the theatres. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is awesome and the owners make you feel welcome. I love the little details: chocolates, notes, picture and for our anniversary Champagne!

We just returned from The Chisholms in Stratford and were very pleased. It was lovely, peaceful and comfortable. They also gave us a photograph of us that they took in front of their fireplace as a keepsake. What a nice touch!

We visited the Chisholm's again this summer for the third summer in a row. Kent and Diane are superb hosts and the house is a wonderful place in which to stay. Highlights include the lovely home itself, filled with antiques and also relics from the theatre, and its convenient location--which is only a short walk to the Festival Theatre. Breakfast is a treat, with wonderful presentation and very tasty fruits and home baked goods offered, in addition to a main course. Kent and Diane pay attention to every detail and they are very kind and gracious hosts who make their guests feel very welcome indeed, like old friends in fact. For us, the Chisholm's in Stratford is a must!

Stunning historical home! We stayed in the "Red Room." We loved the mix of old and new -- beautiful furniture & artwork, as well as access to modern electronics and gadgets! We enjoyed the small touches: actual Stratford Festival costumes throughout the home, single red rose and delicious chocolates and candy awaiting us in our room, just to name a few. Kent was full of knowledge and fun facts! We appreciated his passion for and his commitment to the town of Stratford. We felt welcomed and pampered! The best part is that you can leave your car parked and literally walk your way through all the great shops and restaurants! [Especially if you are doing the Stratford Chocolate Trail!] It is just steps to all the parks and theatres! Enjoy!

This was our second stay. We found The Chisholms to be comfortable, charming & convenient. The owners had a record of what we ate for breakfast on our first stay. You can walk to both theatres, making it very convenient. The owners are very friendly. Take the back stage tour of the festival theatre. One of the owners is a guide and he does an excellent job.

Kent and Dianne know just the right balance to strike between service and privacy. I have visited several times in the last 6 years and find they provide a consistently delightful experience each time. Their home is beautifully appointed with every amenity you could wish for. When the power went out briefly during the most recent visit, there was an emergency flash light which lit up to help you find your way. The rooms are luxurious. The full breakfast consists of amazing baked goods; plenty of fresh fruit and a different main course every visit. The location is perfect for walking downtown and to theatres.

Room Tip: My favourite is the English room because of the fabulous bathroom - a shower as well as a free stand...
