This estate situated in the gatineau park offers a relaxing place to walk around, gave tea, and view the buildings remnants of one of Canada's prime minister and his main residence. Garden and pathways well cared for. One negative is the parking fee to visit this estate. You can spend 2 hours at this location. Wear confortable shoes. Worth the... More

Had tea in the unheated cottage as the wind whipped through from one end to the other. Granted it was Oct 19 and they were suppose to be closed but the colours were peaking and the Gatineau Park was packed - - so they opened. They even took a reservation. Service was abysmal - - granted the waiter may have... More

Although there is a $10 parking fee, there is no other fee needed. Very reasonable for a family! It was very interesting to know more about the history of this influential Prime Minister who brought a lot of social welfare reforms for Canadians. He is definitely worth remembering! The buildings and the grounds were fun to visit. With the fall... More

A wonderful place to visit when the autumn leaves are falling and the maple trees in Gatineau Park are in "full bloom". We stopped at the Tea House and had fresh, hot, thick "Quebec" onion soup (with Oka cheese) and tea and scones with Devonshire cream and home made raspberry jam. Reeeeally good! This place is an Ottawa tradition and... More

Nice option to spend a day in the middle of nature and surrounded by heritage buildings and laid-back atmosphere.

We have never been to this estate in the past, but had friends from out of country visiting and thought we would take a look. It was a very interesting walk around on the grounds, we learned a little history and followed up with some lunch in the tea room. All in all a very nice day, and highly recommended.... More

Beautiful grounds and walking paths in addition to the museum type buildings. Lots of space for children to work off energy, lovely garden to enjoy and interesting buildings to explore. There is a $10 parking fee however there is no charge to enter the grounds nor the buildings so actually quite reasonably priced, especially for a family. We had tea... More

I can't tell you how the restaurant, food or service was, as we never got to try it!! You must pay to park which is totally uncalled for and I feel a rip off. If one is willing to spend money on a meal, a fee to park is uncalled for. If there is a discount or no fee for... More

Beautiful scenery with lovely walking trails. Pretty garden and the rooms were very rustic and authentic. Great place to go to learn more of our history. The tearoom was adorable and elegant at the same time. Loved it. Only thing is that it is not a place to take children.

Thank Dinnerella
