Rich in local history, Birmingham Manor is a charming, turn-of-the-century, Victorian heritage mansion surrounded by stately trees and formal gardens. The Manor is located in the heritage district of Stratford, Ontario Canada, home of the internationally acclaimed Stratford Festival.
Colonel John Lant Youngs built the Manor as his personal residence in 1905. Not only was Colonel Youngs a master wood carver and contractor, he was also one of Stratford's Mayors and a decorated officer during World War I. His workmanship is evidenced throughout the home including the quarter-cut oak woodwork and the fine detailing of the fireplaces. The Birmingham Manor boasts well-proportioned principal rooms, a grand entry hall and a magnificent staircase with a Juliet balcony.
Your hosts, Elena and Dom, have cultivated a home of quiet and graceful elegance. Enjoy your full, gourmet breakfast in the dining room. Delight in the formality of the parlor. Relax on our wrap-around veranda or in the garden. You are made to feel right at home. Each bedroom is air-conditioned and well-appointed for your comfort. All bedrooms have a queen-sized bed and each has its own bathroom for your privacy
From the finest Shakespeare company in North America to one of the largest costume warehouses in the world, Stratford is Canada's premier art town.
