I surprised my Husband with an overnite get away to McCarthy House at Forest Motel. We were very impressed by the attention to detail, (including mints and chocolates by the bed)☺ decor, and all around setting of this lovely romantic retreat in the woods! Kim and Conroy and their son Ben are amazing hosts and very welcoming! The overall standard of Forest Motel and exceptional staff are second to none! We will most certainly be promoting this as a must-stay location for anyone visiting the beautiful city of Stratford!

Room Tip: McCarthy House is absolutely divine! A beautiful secluded retreat by the lake with its own private h...

Have lots of time just to relax, room was great and the view, wow. Silence is the best noise of all it was so nice to shut off phone and just be in the fresh air and hear and see nature. The town was great to visit as well great shopping and good entertainment

Found this perfect hidden gem for an anniversary night away surprise for my husband. What a fantastic location. Like going to the cottage without the drive. Check-in was quick and easy and info was provided about the area. Our room in the motel (#14) was spotless and charming. Everything we needed was there (mini fridge - we chilled our wine, hair dryer, microwave -with popcorn, Keurig with pods, magazines, books, television!) Bed was clean and very comfortable. Morning breakfast was perfect, a small variety of fresh fruit, breads/bagels/muffins, hard boiled eggs, yogurts and of course hot coffee etc. As the weather was fantastic, we were lucky to be able to enjoy a bonfire at night and breakfast by the lake in the morning. We even took a cup of coffee with us as we enjoyed a few minutes canoeing in the lake. We stayed after check-out to enjoy the grounds a little more before going into town for some window shopping. My husband loved the surprise and we are going to try to make it an annual get-away.
We just couldn't have asked for more in such a fantastic location.

Always our first choice for a place to stay when we are going to Stratford Festival for plays and musicals. Friendly staff and the free breakfast is always good with lots of choices. Highly recommended .

An excellent place to get away! The rooms are cozy, nicely decorated and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. My favourite thing about the Forest Motel is the surroundings - my favourite place in Stratford!
