Almost as if frozen in time, Fulford Place offers a two-storey look at how wealthy Edwardians spent their summers in the late 19th / early 20thC. The product of a man who made his millions in the patent-medicine business, the home is a treasure trove of century-old artifacts, art, furniture and tapestries (on the walls and floors). Well-informed docents offer... More

Our tour guide that took us through the Fulford mansion was very informative. He thoroughly explained what was in each room and also told stories about the Fulford family.

Unfortunately it was not opened when we arrived, we walked around outside. Quite an amazing building. Wished we could've gone inside. If we ever go back we will try to go while it is open. Enjoy the grounds and what information that we could read about on the plaques outside.

Fulford House Museum was well worth it. The tour was excellent, full of information and stories. The house was beautiful. I would recommended to all people, of all ages.

I debated whether to go for High Tea at Chateau Laurier in Ottawa or Fulford House in Brockville and decided to go to Fulford House instead after reading some reviews of both places. I went with a friend who did go to Chateau Laurier and she said Fulford Place was much better. The food was delicious and the staff was... More

A private residence until the early 1980's, this turn of the century Edwardian mansion still houses the original furnishings. There are guided tours year round, spooky Lantern Tours ( just say haunted!) and Edwardian Christmas teas in November. My favourite? Lunch on the patio, for a short while I am transported to a time and place where the rich and... More

This is such a beautiful place it's like stepping back in time. The staff was really nice and very knowledgeable! Although the house is beautiful, it is a tad creepy you get that "feeling like your being watched" for sure! Your not allowed to go into all the rooms though only partially they are blocked off by ropes but you... More

Every first out-of-town guest is treated to an afternoon at Fulford Mansion. Every autumn, I bring my mother-in-law for "afternoon tea" at Fulford Mansion. - This gorgeous mansion was built at the end of the 20th century as a private residence for senator George Taylor Fulford and his wife, Mary. The 20,000 sq ft mansion is now a museum which... More

The old Fulford house is an interesting view into the past - did you know the Fulford fortune was made selling " Pink Pills for Pale People" - a patent medicine scam if there ever was one. The house is reasonably well preserved and nicely presented. The view from the main floor veranda is lovely. What drew us to Fulford... More
