About Wayne and Shannon Snyders
We are a local farmer and his wife, with a heart for the next generation, raising a family in the country way of life.
Wayne and Shannon Snyders purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Wayne and Shannon Snyders chose Stratford
When we came upon 95 Ontario Street, it had been sadly dilapidated by many years of neglect. It was estimated that the third floor had not seen any human activity in nearly 75 years. We saw an opportunity to restore it's integrity and beauty, though the cost and risks were both very high. We made a commitment to take whatever time and expense was necessary, in order to bring the building back to life and it's fullest potential, even though the financial return would not be seen in our lifetime. With no municipal or provincial incentives, funding, or grants, we moved forward with the restoration project. We designed the entire building to be barrier-free, which includes the installation of an elevator. We moved forward with the costly endeavor of removing all asbestos because we didn't want to leave it for the next generation's problem. All windows, door systems, and floors have been replaced, and the entire building has been made energy-efficient, weather tight and insulated to contemporary standards. We have navigated through myriads of Stratford's Heritage approval processes, and upheld and in some cases exceeded, their very high standards. On the Albert Street façade, we have added a Heritage-approved stucco wall system, and on the architecturally significant Ontario Street side, we installed Heritage approved wooden windows that were replicas of the original. We have used exceptional quality materials with high quality installation, and hired all local contractors to do the work.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are confident and full in heart, that the fully restored building that now proudly holds it's place at 95 Ontario Street will not only stand the test of the next one hundred years, but it's walls will provide the warmth of home and the comfort of Stratford's uniquely timeless community, to all who enter.

Classy place, great location
Beautifully renovated! Wide open space! Yet cozy and comfortable!
Spacious and beautiful.
Our usual accommodations in Stratford were not available for our stay and we are glad that they weren't. We happened upon The Suites from the small ad in the Stratford Festival visitors guide. Booking, check-in/out, parking, and additional instructions were all made as easy as possible. Stepping off the elevator into the suite made for an amazing first impression. The suite is a beautifully and fully furnished apartment overlooking Ontario Street conveniently located near the theaters, restaurants, and shops. This will now be our first choice when arranging our annual visit to Stratford.
Handy to downtown Stratford
Want to live here!
Was like being in New York City , or a new Detroit loft! contemporary but comfortable. Extremely clean (even the stairwell and elevator!!!). all necessary amenities. multiple lighting options. enough bath linens "for an army"...and good quality, too. Comfy and smell-good bed linens. Easy access in to condo and out to Stratford offerings. Didn't get to the yogurt shop due to Thanksgiving weekend hours, but that's ok.
If anyone needs to sleep on the pullout sofa...bottom half felt somewhat unsupported. one person would sleep diagonally, unless they are closer to 5 feet in height, then shouldnt be a problem. Not sure if 2 people would be "cozy". would rank pullout 3.5 out of 5. However, the king bed was terrific !
The only other bummer might be the noise from next door bar-goers at closing, depending on how many, and how "spirited". Otherwise, the main street/back alley noise wasn't noticeable.
WOULD DEFINITELY RETURN TO THIS CONDO!!!!
(p.s. we are in our 60's, and feel it would be great for all ages)
Outstanding suite with all the comforts of home and right in the heart of Stratford.
This condo/suite has all that you can want when visiting Stratford. Plenty of space and plenty of amenities with high ceilings, big windows and a giant picture of old Stratford. You are close to everything: shopping, good restaurants and all the theatres. We will be back next year.
