Nestled on the Avon river is the Heintzman Music Suite at the River Merchant Inn & Spa. After exploring Stratford, enjoy this One-Of-A-Kind space accented with music memorabilia, chronicling the musical history of this award winning heritage building. Featuring 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath and full chef's kitchen. With free designated parking nearby and private entry pin-pad lock making checking in and out a breeze.

The space
At the River Merchant Inn & Spa, your 1000 sq ft beautifully decorated and fully furnished private retreat is on the bank of the picturesque Avon River. This full size 2 bedroom apartment is a historical experience describing, with archive pictures and rare music memorabilia, the original uses of this unique downtown building beginning in 1909 as the Heintzman Pipe & Piano Company. Upon 2018 restoration, this building was the winner of the 2018 James D Anderson Heritage Restoration Award. After a day of walking just steps from your door to any of the 3 Stratford Festival Theatres, and many riverside and downtown activities, relax in the elegant Modern Musical Glam decorating by the fireplace, listening to a selection vintage vinyl on the record player, unwind in the deep soaker bathtub, or re-energize at the attached Illume Spa. Your Suite is located in the heart of Stratford’s beautiful, historic, tourist downtown with shops, outdoor cafes, restaurants, and activities. Other jewels in the crown of this one-of-a-kind Heintzman Music Suite are the picturesque views of the river and downtown core as well as the abundant light from the soaring 8’ windows. In addition, the new state of the art Chef’s kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances, dinner service and cookware, essentials like spices, coffee and tea’s, and is ready for the fresh ingredients you can find at the weekend Farmer’s Market in the downtown square. Free in-suite laundry is provided for your convenience. It is the perfect getaway for families, friends, couples, or business.
