About Us and the Inn
Rated at 4.5/5 stars by Expedia.ca
2016 "Superb Top Hotel"
Few places in Ontario are lovelier or more alive with culture and character than Stratford. We are a charming Victorian city nestled in pastoral countryside a few short hours from Toronto and the U.S. – a destination internationally renowned as one of North America’s great arts towns. Visit beautiful Stratford and the Stone Maiden Inn year round for various events throughout the city as well as our world renowned Shakespearean Festival from April to October. Our Inn is located in a quiet residential area and is very close to almost everything. Most guests park and walk.
History - The house was built in 1873 and until 1914 was inhabited by one of Stratford's earliest lawyers, until sold and it became the Sanders Hotel. The Hotel Register, going back to 1932, is kept in the Parlour for your perusal. More information is available in our guest information booklets in each room.
The rather grand, very Victorian, front hall, is reached via a well preserved "Stratford Porch" and sets the tone for the Stone Maiden Inn. Intricately crafted original plaster moldings adorn the high ceilings of the Front Hall, Dining Room and Parlour. Finally, ascend the beautiful staircase to the guest quarters on the second and third floors. We are large enough to be a boutique hotel and small enough to provide exceptional customer service.
Antique furnishings and appointments add to the late 19th century ambience. Our elegant Guest Parlour offers a delightful haven for reading, board games, cards, chatting with other guests or simply savouring a quiet moment during your visit. The cozy outdoor patio off the parlour is available for your enjoyment - a perfect spot for reading, conversation or for catching forty winks.
We have a guest fridge, microwave, wine and beer glasses, ice buckets, magazines and board games within easy reach.
From April 15th through October 15th join us any time between 8:00 and 9:30 am (your choice of time) for breakfast and choose your preferred main course off the daily menu. If you need to depart early, please let us know at check-in so we can make the appropriate arrangements.
