“Beautiful mansion”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

You are greeted at the door by a maid and she is also your guide. She was very informative. We were very lucky because there was only the 2 of us in the tour. Beautiful old mansion.

“Hidden gem in downtown Hamilton”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Stopped by here on the recommendation of the staff at Dundurn Castle. Totally worth it! Finding the entrance was problematic - it's through the grand main door, but in winter you need to ring the bell. I was shown around by a guide one-on-one, and found it most enjoyable. An intriguing insight into 20th century Canadian heritage.

“Don't pass it by”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

Right in the heart of downtown Hamilton . This 19th century home can be easily overlooked . It is not that large but it is beautiful . The guides in period costumes explain everything very well . Do not miss the grounds . They are beautiful especially the garden around the back .

We took a group of young girls to visit the home. The guide was excellent and made the experience interesting for them.
