Acrylic Dreams
Ranked #20 of 89 Stratford B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 August 2010

Acrylic Dreams is a small B& B (4-5 rooms) located within walking distance of the Stratford Festival theaters and downtown Stratford. You can park your car when you arrive, and not need it again until you leave (though there are nice attractions outside of town).

The hosts are Karen Zamaria and Jack McDonald. They are both long time Stratford residents, and very cosmopolitan. They are well into the theater scene, and can suggest things to do and see, as well as comment knowledgeably on the offerings on stage this season.

The rooms are pleasant and well maintained. There are two large and attractive rooms upstairs, and two smaller, but also attractive, rooms downstairs. The breakfasts are both vegetarian and delicious.

We have been staying with Jack and Karen for about twenty years. We wouldn't go anywhere else in Stratford.

We've been going to Stratford for 30 years, and we discovered Acrylic Dreams about 12 years ago. Now we wouldn't stay anywhere else! We always stay in the large upstairs room....and it is LARGE with beautiful high ceilings. Very comfortable queen size bed, private bath, mini-refrigerator, and QUIET! The owners, Jack and Karen, are friendly but professional, and they are a great resource for restaurants and things to do in Stratford. The breakfasts are amazing because Jack is a chef, and this is the only place where my husband actually likes the coffee! I wish all the B&Bs I stay at throughout the country were like this one!

We have been travelling to Stratford and staying at Acrylic Dreams for fifteen years. Each year as we enter the door to the front porch, we are greeted with warmth and laughter. We stay upstairs and enjoy the view looking over the flower garden. It is a cozy place to meet with friends, share wonderful conversations, and catch up with Karen and Jack. The breaksfasts are to die for! Wonderful presentation with healthy food served in a bright, sunny room surrounded by family and friends! Convenient location and the hosts are always ready to help with dinner reservations etc. We also enjoy the "theater talk" with Karen and Jack. What fun and lively discussions we have had over the years. Stratford for us is great theater, Shakespeare, and our sojourn at Acrylic Dreams

Stayed at Acrylic Dreams for over 15 years. Very welcoming owners. Willing to share gardens, reviews of plays and good places to eat. Scrumptious breakfasts made on-site with fresh veggies and fruits, homemade bread and muffins and great coffee! Have stayed in 3 of the 4 rooms. Rooms always clean and spotless. Heart-shaped chocolates left on the bed each day. Fabulous place to stay.

I have been to Stratford often and have always stayed at hotels. I'm so glad to have chosen Acrylic Dreams this time. It's located in a pretty residential area only a few blocks from all the theatres. Karen and Jack are wonderful hosts and very knowledgable about the area, the plays and the great book stores in town. We enjoyed chatting with them and the other guests at breakfast (and what a breakfast...delicious both mornings). It felt a little like visiting family...a lovely stay. Also tried the chair massage which was terrific. I'm going to recommend this B&B to my friends for a girls weekend next year.
