We loved our stay at the Blue Spruce! After our first breakfast, Michael drove us around town and showed us where everything is located. This helped us greatly when we set out on our bikes for some exercise -- much needed after the wonderful breakfasts! Michael was kind enough to lend us a safe place for the bikes, to make...

Myra and Mike... Thank you for taking the time to review us. We enjoyed your visit with us and would love to host you again - assuming Mike feels like driving, that is :} We are very pleased we were able to help make your Stratford visit such a pleasant one.

I have stayed at many B&B's over the years and few have inspired me to rate them on tripadvisor. What made this one different? Michael and Helene - the inn keepers of the Blue Spruce. Sure their B&B was comfortable, clean and welcoming. The location was fine - not perfect - but close enough to walk everywhere. The beds were...

My grown son and I stayed at The Blue Spruce on August 28th and were very comfortable and well cared for. On such short notice, Michael, our charming host, gave my son his spare, private sitting-room which has a long sofa [comfy] with a washroom close by as well, so that we both had our own space and at no...

Staying at the Blue Spruce is better than being home! The hosts Michael and Helene saw to our every need and desire. They were friendly, available, but left us to relax in privacy as well. The breakfast food was gourmet and they accommodated our gluten free request without hesitation. Michael assisted us with dinner recommendations and reservations: Helene baked us...

My wife and I stayed at the Blue Spruce in August/2013. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The rooms was lovely and comfortable though a bit small (but not a problem).

This was one of the best B and B's in which we have ever stayed. Michael and Helen, our hosts, were exceptional. The breakfasts were superb and the assistance with restaurant recommendations and reservations was greatly appreciated.

My sister and I visited the Blue Spruce in August and have nothing but glowing remarks and praise for this wonderful, easily accessible, well-appointed sanctuary, as well as for the proprietors Michael and Helene, who went to any lengths to make sure our stay was comfortable.
