My partner and I stayed only one night, would have loved to stay more were it not already booked up! The hospitality was phenomenal, the company pleasant, and the breakfast divine. You are well taken care of here.

We've stayed at 7 different places over the past 9 years, and the attention and care Michael and Helen put into the Blue Spruce make it one of our top choices to stay in Stratford.

We just got back home after spending a wondeful evening at this truly unique B&B. The owners, Mike and Helene make you feel "right at home" and are justifiably proud of all the work they have put into the Blue Spruce since they purchased it in late 2011. They are more than willing to help make your visit to Stratford...

The owners were wonderful to us If we needed something or had a problem they were there. Michael and Helene made wonderful breakfasts for us.
