The docent presented the facts in an interesting manner, and I was glad that we went. Seeing the homes of people who shaped history always gives me pleasure for they become more real instead of just names on plaques and in the history books. Was I dreaming when one item was said to be the Pre Dieux belonging to Mary... More

The Canada Parks staff here graciously opened up the house for a guided tour for the school group that I chaperoned. The home itself was the residence of two late 19th-early to mid 20th century PM's and the tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Well furnished with items from the period. A lot of steps for those disinclined or unable... More

Sadly we arrived when there was no guide but we did enjoy it anyway. The information cards were well done and the intro DVD was super. It is a little hard to find and when I punched in the address on my GPS nothing came up

The house maintained all the furnishings of the last occupant. It was pretty modern for its time with 7 bathrooms upon its final expansion. Self guided tour ($4) let's you go at your own pace. A little confusing that you have to go to the visitor center behind the house although I didn't see a sign so saying.

I loved going to Laurier house, and enjoyed all of the information I learned about the two Prime Ministers for sure a low fee. We weren't able to get a tour as we came during their lunch time which was just before 1. So if you would prefer to have a tour I would make sure you go a bit... More

I've been three times, but only was able to have a tour once. Times seem to be inconvenient or inconsistent. It's nice to be able to go through it, but I think you should call ahead to confirm details.
