Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Nocturne is a licensed establishment located in the heart of Stratford, a short walk to the theatres, restaurants and one-of-a-kind shopping. This beautifully appointed Victorian house provides two private suites, each with full ensuite bathrooms, one with a separate private reading and TV room as well, providing all the privacy of a hotel and yet the casual friendliness of a B&B. The owner is a retired 20 season music composer & educator for the Stratford Festival.

The space
Nocturne is set back from the road, is surrounded by mature gardens, and is double bricked so noise is not an issue. It was built in 1893 and has been renovated to create the B&B recently.

Guest access
Guest have the use of the first floor living room (with grand piano), dining room, front porch, and rear garden.

Other things to note
If you would prefer to have breakfast out a reasonable rebate is available.

Barbara is also able to offer a voice or piano lesson or master class for a reasonable fee, if you wish.

Nocturne Covid-19 Protocols (last updated Ap. 12.21)

At Nocturne BnB:
The two suites at Nocturne are completely self-enclosed. They are across the hall from each other on the second floor. They are each thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between guests, as per Covid and Air BnB regulated standards or better.

Nocturne BnB continues to be open as possible with provincial regulations in effect at the time. For everyone’s safety we have initiated and point out some important Covid safety protocols to keep us all as safe as possible.

For guests and the hosts to keep themselves safe please note the following:
– The dining room at Nocturne is totally separate from the host’s part of the house and has a door between the kitchen and the entire rest of the house.
– The breakfast served does not require contact of any kind between guests and the host(s). A specific time for breakfast will be set with guests as usual. During Covid restrictions breakfast will be laid out in advance of the guests arrival in the dining room (or in the garden outside) ensuring no contact between host and guests. If guests wish interaction with the host(s), the hosts welcome that contact, it will, however, require masks and social distancing.
– Breakfast will be prepared and served safely, observing the standards set by The Government of Ontario “Restaurant and Food Services Health and Safety During Covid-19.”

All potential guests will be required to take a Covid-19 Self-Assessment Questionnaire, in accordance with the guidelines of the Province of Ontario, 24 hours prior to their arrival, and to share its results with the hosts. If the result of that questionnaire is concerning, the reservation will be cancelled, but rest assured, guests will be given a complete refund. Help keep us all safe.

We will email or send you a copy of the Covid Self-Assessment Questionnaire attached to our Air BnB communication. Please print it out, one for each guest, circle the answers appropriate for you, put your name on it, photograph or scan your answered questionnaire, and send it back to us.

Please note that as part of this Self-Assessment it is important, as part of our health, that you, and we as hosts, know that all our contacts in the previous 2 weeks have been safe contacts. The protocols outlined herein apply, even if you have been vaccinated, due to the fact that you can still be a carrier.

During the ‘Green – Prevent’ public health phase, we may rent out both suites at Nocturne. You will need to wear a mask when coming and going from the house and within the common shared areas of the house. Breakfast will be arranged at separate times from the other guests and you must be masked until seated at the dining room table.

During the ‘Yellow – Protect’ public health phase, we may rent out both suites at Nocturne. You will need to wear a mask when coming and going from the house and within the common shared areas of the house. Breakfast will be arranged at separate times from the other guests and you must be masked until seated at the dining room table.

During the ‘Orange – Restrict’ public health phase, only one guest room at Nocturne will be booked at a time to avoid guests co-incidentally crossing paths. Guests are therefore not required to wear masks on arrival and departure or in the guest parts of the house. Please, however, sanitize your hands upon arrival with the sanitizer provided at the front door, and frequently thereafter.

During the ‘Red – Control’ public health phase, or if you are coming from a Red – Control Zone, we will require a negative Covid test result be provided to us from you testing within the previous 48 hours of your arrival, and assure us that you have not had contact of any kind with anyone outside your safe bubble within 48 hours of your arrival.

During the ‘Grey – Lockdown’ phase, or if you are comng from a Grey Zone, we may be able to make a special arrangement with you. We can correspond together and see if details can be worked out together beforehand.

We look forward to hosting you in a safe and responsible way through your amazing Stratford visit.

I am a retired musician having spent 20 years working at the Stratford Festival as a composer and educator. Five things I can't live without: dark roast black coffee, Paris, Netflix, all kinds of music but orchestral and opera rate highly, time at my Haliburton Highlands cottage. My life motto is actually 2: "have courage, be kind" and "there are thousands of reasons why something can't work. I just have to find one reason to make it work.
