I spent such a great day exploring the Mackenzie King Estate. The fall colours of the Gatineau Park were just magnificent all around us, it is such a beautiful and peaceful place surroundings by lovely sceneries, well maintained gardens and walking trails. Perfect place to escape for a relaxing day and take some photos while learning a bit more of... 更多
Went in the Fall so most of the buildings were closed up and the gardens had been prepared for winter. The grounds and ruins are interesting. Walk to the waterfall wasn't worth it - just a stream going over some rocks. It would be nice to go back in the summer to see the grounds in full bloom.
We always take the dog with us and go walk the trails. Love the well manicured gounds. Wish dogs were welcomed on the terrace of the tea room. Paying parking but what can you do?
Ideal visit for tranquility and peace. Beautiful surroundings and gardens. One can walk the paths, sit on the stones or grass to eat a luncheon or other.
I spent such a lovely afternoon at the MacKenzie King Estate. The fall colours of the Gatineau Park were blazing all around us as we strolled the extensive grounds enjoying the gardens. The historic main house is now a 5-star tea house with porches overlooking the gardens. I visited with my elderly mother who had no problem getting around.
The Mackenzie King Estate and Museum is yet another under-appreciated National Canadian Treasure.. PLEASE VISIT. An amazing property and stunning buildings...a truly breathtaking collection of one of our Prime Ministers homes. Yes, parking will cost you about $10 bucks, but admission is free, so don't gripe. This place, and the drive there, is a photographers dream-come-true, so don't forget your... 更多

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... 更多
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... 更多
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... 更多
