"This small Ontario city is home to the Stratford Shakespeare Festival (North America’s largest classical repertory theatre). However, design lovers will want to visit for the Rundles Morris House. A contemporary residence, designed by Shim-Sutcliffe Architects, it’s a sublime combination of materials, in this case concrete, cedar and Douglas fir. The property is spread over four levels, with a central atrium drenching the house in natural light.” [Wallpaper* City Guide Toronto.]
"For an unforgettable getaway, stay in contemporary work of art, the loft-luxe Rundles Morris House, Stratford's most distinctive and exquisitely designe...d address. A deluxe, self-contained suite on four levels, including a full, top-of-the-range demonstration kitchen, the House deservedly features in the Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture. A soaring, three-level atrium is flanked by stairs and intersected by an overhead walkway in this light-filled, architectural gem. Toronto starchitects Shim-Sutcliffe worked with Jim Morris to create this dream home of concrete, warm cedar, and Douglas fir, and Morris and his dashing partner, local Richard Maloney, have spent years painstakingly furnishing and fitting the house with Roblin paintings and Gehry and Le Corbusier chairs... The hosts pay exquisite attention to every detail and nothing is too much to ask of them." [Out Traveler Magazine.]
LUXURY SUITE with 2 BEDROOMS:
The house functions as a deluxe two-bedroom suite, featuring a spacious living room with fireplace and views of the Avon River and surrounding parkland. Both the master and guest bedrooms feature queen size beds with down comforters and pillows, with top quality linens sourced from Ireland. Both bedrooms are private, with bathrooms en suite. The house does not have an elevator, and therefore is not suitable for anyone who cannot climb stairs.
Seasonal, healthy breakfasts are included, and prepared in-house by a private chef. Daily morning housekeeping is included, as well as wireless internet and complimentary parking for two vehicles on site. The Rundles Dinner Menu may be served in the house during restaurant hours.
WEDDINGS / ANNIVERSARIES / BIRTHDAYS / BUSINESS MEETINGS:
The Rundles Morris House is available for private functions for small groups of 4 to 11 guests. Please get in touch with us, as we would be happy to help you plan your private party. Larger lunch or dinner events can be booked next door at Rundles Restaurant.

Additional Location Information
"Life moves at a stately pace in the farm town of 30,000, less than two hours from Toronto. Stay a couple of days to rent pedal boats, feed swans, and stroll through verdant gardens, stopping to picnic by the water, and saunter through galleries and antique stores. By night, explore Stratford's culinary and theatrical offerings. This Stratford, like its British namesake, is famed for its theater festival. Running May through October, the festival keeps things delightfully dramatic in this sleepy Ontario town." [Out Traveler Magazine: 2009.]
