It’s nice to meet you!


We are Eric and Sharon Day. Each of us has been in the hospitality sector for over 40 years, primarly in Calgary Alberta. Together we owned and operated a corporate catering company and a prepared meal retail store. After 27 years of living in the west we are now back in Ontario and have settled in the lovely city of Stratford. We have chosen to spend our time now enjoying and sharing our passion for friendly, thoughtful service and comfort for our guests.

We truly look forward to making your time at Tranquil Days and in Stratford a memorable one.




Our century home was built in 1893 and has been renovated to ensure our guests’ comfort, while keeping the essence of a this beautiful building. 


We are located just 2 short blocks north of the William Hutt Bridge, crossing the historic Avon River. The lovely waterfront paths that stretch for many kilometres offer a scenic view of our famous swans and our beautifully kept parks. If you’re up for a little adventure you can rent a paddle boat, bike or canoe at The Boathouse, which is located less than 1 km away.


The Stratford Festival Theatres are all within a short walk from our front door.

Tom Patterson 5 min walk

Festival Theatre 15 min walk

Shopping and Dining are abundent and very close by!

We would be more than happy to make suggestions and reservations (very strongly suggested during festival season) on your behalf.

Our rooms are equipped with quality toiletries, magnifying mirrors, blow dryers, make up removing towelettes and a selection of items…just in case you’ve forgotten something!
