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.
The haunted walk is really fun and educational. It's not really scary but you'll learn a lot about our old prime minister's life and beliefs. It is a very beautiful park with lots to see and take in.
We strolled round the estate and enjoyed the gardens. Our highlight was having afternoon tea on the terrace while the chipmunks played in the gardens. The service was first class.
Beautiful grounds. Very well maintained. History recounted adds to the charm of the entire site. The tea room is quaint and the staff friendly and efficient.
William Lyon McKenzie King bought a plot of land in this area on which he built a cottage. Adjacent to a lake, it is an example of the quintessential Canadian tradition of having a summer cottage.

If you're looking for somewhere to have a relaxing, scenic walk... Look no further. The Mackenzie King Estate offers gentle beauty with some amazing architecture, imported from buildings no longer standing. A quick detour will also take you to a very picturesque waterfall.

The plain scones seemed to be made from a box mixture. The sweets seemed to have been from a Costco sheet cake. The sandwiches are comparable to what you would serve to... 更多
I loved the stop here. Lots of history to be learned in the Mackenzie King's buildings. Plus, it's free! Perhaps the best treat of all was wandering through the "ruins" on the grounds, which are monuments he constructed out of the stones, windowed archways and columns of a few demolished historical buildings. It was fun and serene to linger there... 更多
We went as a family to visit the grounds. Beautiful gardens, very well kept and along the trails, little bits of history mark the way. We had made a reservation for 3 adults and 3 children with 2 high chairs. From entering the restaurant we were not impressed. The hostess remarked as to how she would have to take out... 更多
We visited this heritage site yesterday. The grounds and gardens were beautiful and "the walk to the falls" was a treat. No falls though - I suspect you would only be able to view them in the spring. We ate at the tea room - the high tea sandwiches were a little disappointing - the bread being somewhat dry, however... 更多
