Inspired by famous Stratford resident William Buckingham, the suite presents a look into Stratford’s history with an eclectic menagerie of locally and internationally sourced antiques and art ranging from the 16th century to the modern age.

A 5 minute walk to downtown restaurants & theatres, the suite offers a queen bed, desk, & small sitting area.

A small library is also provided, curated with famous Canadian and international authors covering history, art and the Stratford festival itself.

The space
Brunswick street was one of the birthplaces of Stratford’s Bed and Breakfast community. I grew up on the street, and as a child I watched the neighborhood develop an incredible vibrance as residents invested in their homes and welcomed tourists through their doors. It resulted in a beautiful restoration movement, with many of the historical properties having been returned to their original stature.

My parents (both artists) have had a long association with the Stratford Festival and the creative arts in Toronto. Some of the books available in the room are items they have collected for both work and leisure during their lengthy careers.

Some of the art adorning the walls relates back to the early days of the Festival itself, including many classic costume design sketches spanning the 1950s through to the 1970s.

Guests can stay connected with work while on holiday by making use of the Buckingham’s spacious, antique work station.

Take advantage of my personal recommendations for restaurants and night life (outside of the theatre scene), posted in the suite itself. As a Sommelier, I have a great deal of experience in the food and beverage sector and am happy to share that insight with you.

I’ve also compiled a list of my favourite shops and nature walks, which can also be found in the listing details.

All bathing supplies are included with a guest’s reservation.

The air-conditioned suite includes a hot beverage station (coffee and tea included), refrigeration, flatware, cups, and cutlery.

The newly renovated three-piece bath is located next to the room entrance and is entirely private.

Stratford, Ontario, Canada

Brunswick street was one of the birthplaces of Stratford’s Bed and Breakfast community.

I grew up on the street, and as a child I watched the neighbourhood develop an incredible vibrance as residents invested in their homes and welcomed tourists through their doors.

It resulted in a beautiful restoration movement, with many of the historical properties having been returned to their original stature.

Bed and Breakfasts were a popular choice for home owners on Brunswick due to its extremely convenient, central location. It’s a 5-minute walk from the downtown’s finest culinary establishments and an easy walking distance from all four of Stratford’s theatres.

The neighborhood has maintained its peaceful residential atmosphere and is a mix of family dwellings, local arts studios, professional offices, and open green spaces.

Hi! I'm a professional host in the Short-Term Accommodation sector. I’m an entrepreneur and sommelier with an extensive background in hospitality management. In addition to hosting, I remain very active in the drinks business, tasting and evaluating wines from all over the world. My work includes providing food & wine pairing advice, teaching, and offering consulting services in the investment and procurement of wine and spirits. In my spare time I enjoy the creative arts and am an active musician and songwriter. I'm originally from Stratford ON, and although I enjoy the boundless excitement and opportunity that a big city provides, I have a healthy appreciation for the peace and quiet that nature and small communities can bring.

During your stay
I am a friendly and outgoing person and make a point to greet each guest upon arrival in order to introduce myself and the space. Following that, I tend to leave it up to the guest, how much interaction they desire with me as a host.

I am also a busy professional, working from an office on the main floor most daytime hours.

I am on site frequently, doing maintenance work on the property, so feel free to chat if I’m present.

I live on the main floor of the house and am frequently home in the evenings. I can always be reached by phone or text at your convenience, should you require assistance during your stay.
