We were looking for a place to go for approx. 1-2 hours while waiting for our hotel room to be ready in Brockville. Happened to pick up flyer in hotel lobby. Found it pretty easily. What a lovely house museum. They have an elevator so my husband was able to use his mobility scooter. Staff was as nice as could... More

This home was built for the Fulford family in the early 1900s. A lot of the home remains as it was then. Lovely architecture and wood work inside. Very knowledgeable guide who really knew his subject well. Worth more than the admission fee, it is a great tour of a by-gone era.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this beautiful place. The guided tour was very interesting and well presented. A fascinating view into the lives of the super-rich in the early 1900's. Definitely worth a drive along the beautiful St. Lawrence River. We also enjoyed the guided tour of the sister attraction of Homewood Museum, just down the... More

We had a delicious lunch and tea on the balcony overlooking the St Lawrence River followed by a marvelous tour of the house. The young man providing our guided tour was very knowledgeable and could answer most of our group's questions. The architecture is amazing and the majority of the interior is totally period (late 1800's) - just as it... More

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.

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
