The space
Welcome to The Bradshaw:

Unwind in the heart of Stratford’s boldest & most prominent restoration masterpiece. Brick facades unfold before you, buttressed by 200-year-old industrial timbre framing and accented with tasteful, modern finishings and historical décor elements.

Winner of the 2019 James Anderson Award for Heritage Preservation & featured in National Geographic, the Bradshaw building has long been one of Stratford’s most beloved architectural landmarks. With historical roots cultivated by a spirit of progress, the property takes its rightful place at the forefront of the city’s premium luxury vacation rental offerings.

Originally built in 1903 in the Edwardian Classical style, complete with channeled brick and radiating vousisoirs that frame arched windows and entrances, the Mooney Biscuit and Candy Factory defined the entrepreneurial spirit of the time.

It was in this spirit that successive enterprises built their own legacies at 245 Downie Street such as The Bradshaw Lofts namesake, J.L. Bradshaw, one of Canada's oldest wholesalers.

Professionally hosted by hospitality expert, sommelier, and Stratford native, Brendan McKenna (KressleyGroup.com), all suites are fully equipped with modern kitchen fittings, spacious washroom facilities, complimentary on-site parking, and ensuite laundry fixtures for your convenience.

Hi! I'm a professional host with an affinity for restored historic spaces. . I’m an entrepreneur and sommelier with an extensive background in hospitality management. In addition to hosting, I remain very active in the drinks business, tasting and evaluating wines from all over the world. My work includes directing hospitality programs, teaching and presentation, and offering consulting services in the investment and procurement of wine and spirits. In my spare time I enjoy the creative arts and am an active musician and songwriter. I'm originally from Stratford ON, and although I enjoy the boundless excitement and opportunity that a big city provides, I have a healthy appreciation for the peace and quiet that nature and small communities can bring.
