Heather was a wonderful host. The breakfast was filling and delicious. We had the red room an it is exactly as pictured on the web site, comfortable bed with beautiful linens. Stella her dog was so well behaved and a joy as she greeted us each time we came back. The Chisholm House is a perfect location. 10 min walk...

Thank you Mr. and Ms. Nevada ;) for taking the time to review Chisholm House. It has been a great season of meeting new and old guests. Stella has really enjoyed meeting people too- she's going to be sad now the season is over. The next Stratford Festival season has been announced and the schedules will be out soon. Did...

Lovely b&b experience with a charming hostess. The only reasons it doesn't get a 5/5 are because we didn't sleep that well, there was a dog (allergies) and breakfast was very sugary (diabetic) and we weren't asked about food restrictions.

We had checked other reviews on "Trip Advisor" when planning our trip to Stratford, and read very positive reviews about "The Chisholms". I am not sure there are enough complimentary words to describe our exceptional experience! Our host was lovely...warm and welcoming! There is a huge veranda with comfy chairs to sit and have a glass of wine before dinner....

This CHISHOLMS was perfect. This is our 2nd year at this B&B. (Will certainly be back again) The service was excellent and the breakfast was phenomenal. The location was great, walking distance to the theatres, restaurants and the river. Heather, the owner is very friendly and helpful.

Since it's on the main drag (Ontario St.), it's easy to find, but a little prone to traffic noise. Stratford appears to have grown a little busier since we were here in 2013, so more traffic. Entrance to the parking area is off Front St which comes out to Ontario St. at a traffic light, so it's easy to get...

We stayed in the English Room which was enchanting in it's decoration, with all the amenities you could wish for. The ensuite bathroom was equally charming and very modern at the same time. Breakfast was delicious and our hostess, remembered our dietary needs from the time of our reservation. Will definitely come again.
