  • Cheek Guest House

    The Cheek Guest House is the larger of our two lodgings. There are 12 rooms with the choice of one king or two twin beds. All rooms have private baths, and the entire guest house has WiFi. The recently renovated Great Room is a spacious area for conversation, a cup of coffee, cards, or to watch TV. There is a service kitchen for drinks, snacks, and ice. A large deck set in the treetops adjoins the living room. There is no better place to enjoy the beauty of Stratford with a group or just as an individual getaway.

  • Astor Guest House

    The Astor Guest House was named after Lady Astor who served as Stratford’s first director from Great Britain. Equally comfortable as the Cheek, it has 3 rooms with king-sized beds, and 3 with 2 twin beds. The Astor also has private baths, WiFi, a service kitchen, and a lovely living room. There is a TV to catch up on the news, but more guests enjoy the tranquility of the woodland deck when they are not exploring Stratford’s 1900 acres.
