Meet your Hosts

Many families have a life story to share with others. Kim & Conroy Schelhaas, along with their 3 children, all of Dutch descent, have dedicated their lives to family, church, schools, mission work in the Dominican Republic, and the Stratford community for over 30 years. They bring a lifetime of professional and volunteer experience to their creative hospitality at the Forest Motel.


Conroy has 30 years of experience as a general contractor, new home builder, interior/exterior designer and master tradesman. Kim has 28 years of experience in teaching, piano and music, voice, and five languages.


Their two grown sons have begun careers in Engineering & Commerce/Restaurant Management while their daughter is working on a Communications Degree with a minor in Youth Ministry.


Together, our passion is to serve in the people business. We are delighted to share this place
