“Viewpoints”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

It's a lovely visit,but sometimes I think it is a shame that we preserve land and landmarks only to watch it instead of making use of it in a respectful and economic way.

I don't think I would eat here though and the cost is minimal so that is nice.

I am thinking of the paternal side of my family and I don't know them to recognize them but they are not land owners despite that they lived there all their lives. It seems to me with the homelessness and the needs for people to have something healthy to eat and their health to be looked after that some of these landmarks would become a bit more modernized for the good of Canadians.

Yes this sounds political but honestly it's just a renewed interest in philosophy of life.

“Beautiful old Estate in the Gatineaus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Very easy drive into the Gatineaus, wander around this opd estate, visit the boat dock at the lake, and if you feel like a nice walk, take the path behind the house to the waterfall at the bottom of the hill, its a beautiful gem in the woods...well worth the climb back up the hill ! ;)

“Beautiful grounds, excellent landscape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The location which is in the middle of Gatineau Park is beautiful especially in the autumn when the colour of the leaves are changing. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and well preserved. If you have the time, stop at the Tea Room for lunch or afternoon tea. The quiché and Montreal Smoked Meat sandwich are good. Be sure to leave a tip for service as service charge is not included.

“Good tea room, very interesting grounds, very beautiful walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We arrived 15 minutes before the tea room closed, and just managed to get scones and tea. Not quite a 'Devon tea', but not bad at all. The staff were very friendly. Outside we walked around the grounds and read the plaques that described Mackenzie King vision for the gardens and monuments. Then we had an dusk walk to the waterfall falls, which was very beautiful.
