“Free visit but check times and days!”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

It is most unusual for the Lieutenant Governor to allow his house open to the public when he is living there. Although only done in July and August it is lovely to see inside and lots of people want to see where William and Kate stayed on their royal visit.

“Could live here easily”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

I only saw the house from the outside as I only walked in the grounds. The house looks unassuming and the garden is not very big but all the more beautiful. I continue to be impressed by the fact that the public is allowed near such sensitive buildings. Lovely!

It is an official residence of 1843. Recognize it for what is is, an old house needing a lot of care. Well presented; good interpreataion and so on

“Learn a little more about Canada”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Haven't been in school for many years and had forgotten some Canadian history. The video and Staff helped jog the memory. Loved that the building had been restored.
