About The Festival Inn

The Workshop Weekends Scrapbooking Retreats are hosted at the comfortable and quaint Festival Inn, located in beautiful Stratford, Ontario.

Your rooms are perfect for catching sleep between layouts.  Each room has one or two beds (depending on option chosen), and includes a small fridge for snacks and beverages, coffee maker and TV.  Choose a single room, or space for you and up to 3 friends.

The Guthrie Ballroom is spacious and comfortable, where you can settle in and spread out.  The room will be locked when no one is inside for your safety (but please keep all valuables with you in your room).  Enjoy good lighting and our own access to the satellite radio for music.

You will also enjoy free parking, a pool, hot tub and sauna in a tropical garden setting, and access to the Anne Hathaway restaurant.  There are also several restaurants in the immediate area.
