Playback: Stratford, Ontario

Things Are Looking Up
For an unforgettable getaway, stay in contemporary work of art, the loft-luxe Rundles-Morris House (C$595 a night), Stratford's most distinctive and exquisitely designed address. A deluxe, self-contained suite on four levels, including a full, top-of-the-range demonstration kitchen, the House deservedly features in the Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture. A soaring, three-level atrium is flanked by stairs and intersected by an overhead walkway in this light-filled, architectural gem. Toronto starchitects Shim-Sutcliffe worked with Jim Morris to create this dream home of concrete, warm cedar, and Douglas fir, and Morris and his dashing partner, local Richard Maloney, have spent years painstakingly furnishing and fitting the house with Roblin paintings and Gehry and Le Corbusier chairs. The House has a living room with fireplace, den, bedroom, two bathrooms, and views of Victoria Lake. Book well in advance: their season is short (May through October) and Stratford's most stylish stay is a hot, hip ticket.
