~~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, 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 to2 immaculate luxurious suites, all nestled at beautiful Lake Mc Carthy.


Our 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 B&B 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.


~~We would be thrilled to have you stay with us. This place is not just our home but also yours to enjoy. We are open all year round and offer off-season rates so you can enjoy any of the four seasons. Enjoy cross- country skiing, ice fishing, skating, or simply a weekend or night away to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Father's Day, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, birthdays or an anniversary - each provides the perfect opportunity for just such a getaway.


Have a terrific time enjoying and experiencing the four theatre stages in Stratford, backstage tours, costume warehouse, parks and gardens, culinary art at its best, myriads of shops and stores, antiques galore, toy stores, quilt displays, museums, art galleries, art in the park, farmers' markets etc., and much more.


Welcome to Stratford, home of the world's best theatre.  Welcome to the Forest Motel, your home away from home. Sit back, sleep in, rest by the lake, boat, swim, walk and bike to your heart's content. We are absolutely thrilled to share this place with you and wish you the very finest Stratford vacation one can have.


Your Hosts,


Kim and Conroy Schelhaas
