Gerry and Patty were so welcoming. I even got an early check-in which I thought was generous. Our suite was secluded and overlooking a stretch of the river and trees and kingfishers. Just the sort of place to chill out between seeing plays in Stratford. The pool was terrific crystal clear and 83 degrees on a hot sunny day--pool noodles,...

Cute, basement rental. Bring your own cutting board and garbage bags. I have no complaints of the unit itself except I don't think the kitchen was cleaned well as there was grime around the taps and the BBQ was very dirty inside and out to the touch. Also, it is noisy with above we were awoken by walking and shoes...

Management response:

This is our first negative review on numerous booking websites in over three years and we are sorry our guests didn’t appreciate our efforts. There are two glass-cutting boards on the counter – for sanitary purposes we do not provide a wooden cutting board. Additional garbage bags are under the lid of the garbage container under the sink (there is...

We had not intended to spend this wintery night in Mitchell but the highway was closed in the direction we were headed. Guys at the local Subway handed us the Heron's Nest card (there are no motels in town). Fortunately the owners answered the phone at 10:30 pm, got busy shoveling snow and we had a warm place to stay....

Management response:

Thank you for your review. We hope the rest of your excursion went without further complications.

About the neighbourhood
The Heron’s Nest is located on a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking the north branch of the Thames River. The West Perth Thames Nature Trail is just steps outside your doorway. You will probably hear a donkey braying and peacocks calling from the animal zoo located across the river. You are in a true country setting in the middle of an urban area away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The heated in-ground swimming pool is a huge draw for those wanting a little fun and relaxation in a garden setting. All in all you can’t help feeling relaxed and blowing away your tensions while staying at the Heron’s Nest. Oh, and there is driveway parking for you.
