My family and I enjoy visiting Woodside especially at Christmas. This beautifully restored home is especially welcoming during the holiday season. The tour guide, dressed in period costume, is very helpful in explaining a Victorian style Christmas. A leisurely hour long tour of the home and it's stunning grounds is a nice way to have a bit of a holiday... 更多
This is well worth the visit especially if you enjoy Canadian history. The site is beautiful and the house has been restored and decorated to the period. Our daughter was taking piano lessons at the time and they let her play Mackenzie King's piano, which was somewhat challenging because the keys were not the same as a normal piano. It's... 更多
Although William Lyon Mackenzie King only lived here for a few years while he was a teenager, I'm sincerely grateful his home has been made into a museum/park. Apparently back in the day, his mother was really into holding séances, something he would continue in his later years solo: "King communed with spirits, using séances with paid mediums. Thereby he... 更多
This beautiful, old turn-of-the-century home is one of my favourite historic sites in Kitchener, Ontario. Touring each of the rooms, looking at the unique furniture, china displays, larder cupboards, wallpaper coverings, wonderful antiques, pot-bellied stoves,old framed photos, etc., I feel as though I have gone back in history and tasted another era...can almost imagine playing outdoors with the King Family... 更多
We were there for an evening visit just before Christmas and the house was lovely! Such a grand and elegant place - I would love to live there. As an added feature, there was a gentleman outside roasting chestnuts over an over campfire for us to enjoy. This is a must-visit place for you to bring family and friends (at... 更多
Even if it were open, and it's usually closed, there's really only one building to see and it wouldn't take long. Be careful of poison ivy on the property.
great depiction of the childhood home of Mackenzie King. It has been subject to federal govenrment cuts and so is closed some of the time so check ahead as to when it is open
I would not recommend this place to anyone, there are crack heads living in the park when we went we were approached by a couple of very scary bums as we walked up the path to the home I found needles on the ground, The house was locked and no one other than the crack heads were there.
Unfortunately sometimes closed; just when you want to visit. Other reviewers are correct either closed due to government cuts or recently the home had mold. :( However, when it is open, it is a true Kitchener gem and I highly recommend anyone goes to visit. The rooms, the history, the antiques, the knowledge of the tour guides...its been a favourite... 更多
The outside of this beautiful estate is extremely lovely and hides the wealth of knowledge hiding inside. It is a real shame that recent government budget cuts have closed this and other facilities like it from having staff and "open hours" as well as interpreter-guides. As a history buff, and having had a mom and dad who took us around... 更多
