About Gerry Kehl

Patty & Gerry Kehl are semi-retired (we won’t ever fully retire) business professionals. We love to travel and explore new parts of the world. We have experienced the pleasure of staying in private properties in our travels and have converted the lower level of our home into a private suite that reflects what we expect and enjoy when we travel.

Both Patty and Gerry are involved in the community. Gerry is a charter member and past president of the Rotary Club of Mitchell and served on municipal council; six years as a councilor and four years as Deputy Mayor. Patty is a charter member of the Energy and Environment Committee and an active creator and organizer of many community betterment programs including a garden co-op.

Why Gerry Kehl chose Mitchell

We built our home here in Mitchell (only 15 minutes from Stratford) on the banks of the Thames River over 44 years ago. As you will see by the pictures it is our home, our summer cottage and our winter chalet all wrapped up into one.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for a most comfortable stay. Everything we needed was here including peace and quiet. A nice touch was the unexpected breakfast provisions - much appreciated! And finally, it was perfect for us to visit Mildred at T.R. Place.

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous getaway! The property description and the positive reviews do not exaggerate. Everything is as described, and then some. The rental unit is comfortable, clean, and well-equipped (including good quality bed linens and towels). The pool is a great bonus. Again, clean and very well-kept, with lots of seating and tables, lounge chairs, and access to a refrigerator nearby to keep your beverages cold. This was a perfect spot to be close to Stratford to take in a few shows at the Festival and some excellent dining, yet still be able to experience the tranquil simplicity of the natural surroundings of Mitchell (walking trails right at the doorstep). Gerry and Patty are beautiful hosts--so friendly, easygoing, and helpful. They are the real star attractions at this venue! (Thanks for sharing your fresh corn--a delicious treat!) We highly recommend this property. It's a VRBO gem!

Great Find

  • 4 of 5

Pleasant little nest. All we needed for our visit to Stratford to see seven plays. Fridge, microwave and coffe maker were useful! The TV was great for the olympics and we borrowed the canoe for an up river paddle. It has a nice walk along River Thames. Loved the perennial garden entrance.

Delightful setting, comfy and convenient as well

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in this comfy garden apartment. Convenient to Stratford for the Festival. Pretty setting on the Thames River with a nature path at our door leading to downtown Mitchell and to nearby parks. Enjoyed birding along the path and at a nearby marsh. Cheerful, friendly hosts took good care of us.

Relaxing, Professional and Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our short (2 day) stay with the Kehl's. It was excellent. Highly recommend if you are going to the theatre in Stratford or Drayton.

And don't forget to shop downtown Mitchell ! All very convenient and accessible. Make sure you visit the West Perth Wetlands for a relaxing stroll.
