“Worth a stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“Dog Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We visit Willistead Manor everyday to walk our dog. The gardens are beautiful. Staff is very friendly and enjoy the canine company. Art in the Park is a great event every year.
