Meet Your Hosts

Regan House was purchased in late 2014 by Wayne and Judith Gilmer, after previously owning Hathaway House (Stratford), that they operated as a Bed and Breakfast and garden/wedding venue. Regan House is an exciting venture and one that both Wayne and Judith saw the potential of, with the draw card of being involved in the hospitality industry again.
