“Our experience was priceless!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Our son and daughter-in-law's wedding reception was recently held at Willistead Manor. The set up was tastefully done, the service and food were phenomenal! We are very thankful to all who made this day so special! Wonderful location!!!

they hold a great art in the park during the summer, its a great time to take advantage of local vendors and tour the historic building.

“Closed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

It was advertised on-line as available and open for tours but we found it was not. The artists who were supposed to be working in the carriage house were also not open, and again it was advertised as open on-line. A taxi ride for nothing and a long but pleasant walk back to our hotel through part of Walkerville and some ethnic neighbourhoods.

“Worth a stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Cozy! Romantic. Beautiful in summer and winter! Makes you wonder what life back then was like. This is in Windsor and a very nice neighborhood called Walkerville.

“Fascinating example of Edwardian gothic fantasy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

This place is a cross between Graceland and Casa Loma. It's huge and impressive and so eccentric. A large mansion with only one bedroom, a Canadian house decorated with paintings popular a hundred years ago that depict such English scenes, ro a Canadian landscape of English trees lit by the pallid sun of the old country.
Still it does provide Windsor with a really good spot for literary events and the space is great for hosting polite parties.
