Whispering Pines of Stratford
Ranked #17 of 88 Stratford B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 September 2016

I picked Deb's Whispering Pines for a weekend away with my family to celebrate our parents' 80th birthdays. What a fantastic experience for all of us!

The place is beautifully decorated and immaculate. Deb went out of her way to make our stay perfect. When we arrived back after the play, there was a Happy Birthday banner, balloons, cake and cupcakes waiting for us!

Breakfast was fruit cup, yogurt and eggs benedict. My mother didn't want eggs, and so Deb made her a special eggs-free benedict, which she loved. The food was amazing! In addition to breakfast, she also stocks the dining area with all sorts of drinks and snacks for us to enjoy.

When we told her our dinner reservations were for 6:15, she was worried that we might be late for the play at 8:00, so she called the restaurant and moved our reservations up. She is extremely thoughtful and you can tell she very much enjoys what she does.

When we were leaving, I almost forgot to pay because I felt I had been staying with a friend! I highly recommend Deb's B&B, it helped make our vacation extra special!

We had the most wonderful stay at Whispering Pines of Stratford.
The amenities were top of the line- from an assortment of toiletries in the bathroom, to cold waters, to warm beverages and snacks. The facilities were clean and cozy, and the breakfast was decadent and delicious. Deborah went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. She accommodated our schedules, dietary restrictions, and even went as far as to bake a special 92nd birthday cake for one in our party.
I have dietary restrictions and Deborah managed to book us a dinner reservation at a very health conscious and knowledgable restaurant, as well as provide a special breakfast, and packed lunch that suited my needs.
Deborah is the hostess of all hostesses. I recommend this B&B to anyone looking for accommodation in the Stratford area. You can rest assured you will be taken care of at Whispering Pines of Stratford.

This was the only B&B we have stayed at where we felt comfortable enough to choose to spend time quietly in the home. The lounge is spacious and comfortable, the grounds are inviting, and Deborah, the host, as accommodating and considerate as it is possible to be. Although our request was late, she booked three restaurants for us for dinner which served us exceptional meals, and she made us breakfasts that were large, varied, and delicious. Very highly recommended.

Room Tip: Our room had an adjacent terrace-like room with access to the grounds - ideal.

Hostess Deborah greeted us warmly when we arrived and did everything possible to make our 3 night stay perfect. This large home on a quiet street close to the Festival Theatre has been made into a 4 bedroom B&B with taste and flair. We had the smallest room on the ground floor with a 4 piece bath. Each room has access to it's own sitting area. The back garden is large and backs on to the "whispering pines".
The breakfasts are really good with Deb's fruit salads as starters, followed by a different hot dish each day. The dining room is spacious and you can make coffee and tea, find snacks, water and juices any time. We had a couple of things to keep frozen and were able to put those in Deb's freezer.
Chatting with Deb was such a pleasure. We'll certainly try to book into Whispering Pines again.

Room Tip: Ground floor room is accessible. Upstairs are larger and 2 have private bathrooms.

There is always a quiet reflection, when we part as new friends and even sometimes a little sorrow, filled with hope that all our guests will return knowing! that there memories will always lead them home ! Where the porch light is always on! to a door, that is always open. Thank you! Both, for giving us the opportunity to enjoy your wonderful world of history and food for the soul.

My partner and I had the most lovely experience at Whispering Pines in Stratford, Ontario. First of all the hostess, Deborah, is so warm and engaging we wanted to stay longer but time didn't allow. We felt like we had known her as our good friend for a long time. She was always concerned about our needs while we were visiting. Breakfast was wonderful. Couldn't have asked for a better meal. Met another lovely couple and their son while having breakfast. It was a very homey and relaxing environment. The room we stayed in was comfortable, clean and very accommodating for our needs. The mattress was superb and we had a great sleep. The house is kept in immaculate condition and the grounds are lovely, especially the back yard. We left with a warm hug from and Deborah and hope to return again soon.

Room Tip: Let Deborah know in advance if there are special needs and she will accommodate to her best ability!

My daughter and her partner stopped here with me on route to Chicago. We booked late and were lucky enough to get a couple of rooms due to a cancellation. This is such a lovely place, quiet, calm with spotless comfortable rooms. My daughter and partner stayed on the first floor and I had beautiful large room at the rear of the hotel looking out over the garden. Every detail has been considered. We walked into Stratford for dinner, about fifteen minutes along the river. Breakfast was perfect. And we left with pockets of biscuits for our continued trip. I'm not normally a bed and breakfast person but this place has converted me. Lovely host and will go back.

a B and B with a charming, sincere hostess. Deb was born to this business and her guest relation skills are outstanding. We were two couples offering many challenges (chronic illness and dietary issues) to Deb. She was knowledgeable and swift to respond to our needs.

A dining room set up with all day cold and hot drinks and snacks was a welcoming bonus. We felt "at home" as soon as we walked in and were greeted by Deb.
The master suite is well appointed with an ensuite. We stayed on the main floor in a queen room with ensuite. Perfect for the guests who do not like to climb stairs.
Breakfast was well above average with special touches of home made jams, etc.
A truly wonderful experience which we hope to repeat!
