Also great fire pit set up for marshmallows! Only wished that the owners plant lots of plants that repel the load of mosquitoes that made hiking the trails very difficult! Or have lots of frogs or burn citronella in the outdoor patio.

this is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Stratford. The grounds are amazing. you can relax, kayak, hike, have a fire and the staff are very helpful and accomodating. Why stay downtown when you can get back to nature at the Forest Motel?

Glorious lake front location just a short drive from downtown Stratford. Wonderful place to start the day before shopping/dining/theater in town. Very comfortable rooms for very reasonable rates.Great for families given canoeing/kayaking/fishing on lake, bicycles to use on wooded trails, etc.
