Welcome to Forest Motel and Retreat Center!
In the heart of Ontario lies Stratford on Avon (the Avon River that is), a world class city disquised as a small rural town. And well, you found it; this precious gem of a place known as the Forest Motel & Woodland Retreat.
In the Heart of Ontario lies Stratford on Avon (the Avon River that is), a world class city, disguised as a small rural town. And well, you found it; this precious little gem of a place known as the Forest Motel; a place where you can come, hang your hat, let your worries go, and relax.
Stratford’s most secluded Motel & Bed and Breakfast is home to 19 immaculate comfortable rooms in three buildings, all nestled at beautiful Lake Mc Carthy.
All three buildings are surrounded by 32 acres of woodlands, wetlands and water; yet only three minutes from Stratford City limits, and nine minutes to world class theatre.
The Forest Motel is home to over 60 species of birds and waterfowl and 30 kinds of mammals, reptiles and fish. Take a hike on the trails, through the forest, or explore the waters. Of the thirty acres you enjoy here, seventeen acres are protected under wetlands designation and a further eleven acres are protected forest. You will feel in touch with a marvelous creation.
