The Heron's Nest
193 Willow Lane
Mitchell, Ontario. Canada
summer and autumn of 2013 I had the pleasure of working on assignment in
Mitchell / West Perth Ontario.
was extremely fortunate to secure accommodations for my stay at 'The Heron's
Nest' along the Thames River.
out my front door I had access to the walking path along the river, which
provides a scenic walk to downtown Mitchell.
and Patty Kehl were excellent hosts. My furnished apartment was neat, clean and
quiet. With often-hot humid summer days it was great to come home to a cool dip
in the in-ground pool and spend some time socializing with my hosts, sometimes
red wine was involved!
found the area very 'bike friendly' and was able to cycle to Stratford to the
east and west to Seaforth and Goderich all from my front door at Willow Lane.
was really picturesque with fall colours all around. I found the 'Riverwalk' a
great way to exercise and see the sights of Mitchell.
just a short drive to Stratford I'm hoping to return with my wife next fall to
take in some of the Stratford Festival.
A wonderful experience was had at 'The Heron's Nest', one I hope to repeat.
Thank you so much for the wonderful stay. We all wish we could stay longer and go in the pool and canoe in the river. I hope to come back again. Thank you,

Thanks for your hospitality and helpfulness!
This is a great location by the river & we enjoyed the sites & the walking path & of course the heated pool (especially the kids). Your place is clean & well equipped & we were glad to have the use of a BBQ grill. The location is great for exploring the area & the festivals in Stratford.
Hope to see you again next summer.

Thank you for making our stay here in Perth County a memorable one. This place was everything we wanted and more. It is a clean, comfortable place that felt like home. Having the BBQ is a great addition along with the stove top made our dinners and breakfast easy to prepare. Our canoe ride down the river was a lovely experience. Will definitely consider coming back.

What an ideal place for a short vacation. You two could not have been more hospitable to us - we felt like "invited" guests.
We're already planning our return trip next summer.
All the best,
Dale & Mark
P.S. And thanks both for the teapot (very well used) and the use of the kayak - it reawakened my attraction!
Staying here was simply perfect for visiting Grandma at the Ritz Villa. It made our visit much less stressful than in the past.
The studio apartment is lovely and nicely equipped. We enjoyed not having to have all our meals out, walking along the river and swimming in the pool.
Thank you for your hospitality. We look forward to future visits.

Thanks so much for providing a home away from home for us as we vacationed in Canada. We had a great time and enjoyed your kind hospitality.
Hope to see you in Michigan sometime!

We really enjoyed our stay. Your attention to detail makes the suite very comfortable.
The location is lovely! We couldn't have asked for anything more.
Thanks so much for being such gracious hosts!
