By the photos on their website, I figured Wickwire would be a charming place to stay, with history tastefully showcased throughout the home. As it turned out, the decor was less elegant than I expected, and much too cluttered and thrown-together to be charming. There were a lot of curiosities around the house and in the room; some I'm sure were antiques, but others were simply dust-collectors (such as the bright pink flashlight displayed on the fireplace mantle).
I stayed in the Royal Oak room (which I believe was also referred to as the Scotia room by the host http://www.the-wickwire.ca/ww_home_2/ww_royaloak.htm). The bed was comfortable, but the room's cleanliness was hit and miss. I was confident the rugs were vacuumed and the sheets were clean, but the TV remote and alarm clock had not been wiped down in a while and there were hairs in the bathtub. (And I'm pretty sure those were spider webs I met with when reaching into the closet.) In-room coffee and tea consisted of a decaf coffee, and several teas and sugar packets from Fairmont hotels.
It was fine for one night, but I will book elsewhere if returning to the area.More
