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.

Want to live here!

  • 5 of 5

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.


(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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Spacious, private, spotless

  • 5 of 5

Great loccation for walking to theatres, shops, good restaurants. High ceilings, furnishings, lovely linens impart feeling of sophisticated penthouse suite. Living room pull out couch separated by a very long hallway from master bedroom providing more privacy and quiet than one might expect from a one bedroom condo.

Perfect for our Wedding Group

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the suites in Stratford! We booked for two night around our wedding and used the apartment for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready in the morning as well as a place to stay after the wedding. The apartment was so spacious and had the perfect amount of room to host us 4 overnight plus a couple guests in the morning. It is so beautifully decorated that we got many amazing photos of us there. The kitchen was perfectly equipped to prepare breakfast and lunch for our group. Overall the apartment was perfect for our stay!

Super apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed for two nights and found the suite a wonderful surprise. Much bigger than even the pictures show it was like being at home: well furnished, clean, convenient and had everything we needed Check in was easy , the staff friendly and the location on mainstreet near the avon theatre was perfect. Parking was very convenient. The kitchen is new and all was in good order. Our only wish was for more utensils and oven mits. We would definitely stay again.

Would stay at again

  • 5 of 5

My husband, mother and I stayed 2 nights at this downtown Stratford suite. Very convenient location to restaurants and theaters. The girls downstairs at the yogurt shop were very helpful and we loved our free yogurt coupons. The apartments is nicely decorated with plenty of amenities. My only caution would be that there is one bedroom with a large bed and a pull out couch in the living room. The pull out couch is quite comfortable, but the living room gets very bright in the morning if you're trying to sleep in. Regardless, I would stay again - lovely place!! Thanks for the hospitality.
