The only disappointment we had—due to time constraints—is that we could only stay one night! The rooms were wonderful—you have to love the twelve foot ceilings. Spruceholme is a look back in time, but with all the modern conveniences. The staff are down to earth and its owner Jane is engaging. After a short tour we were invited to the dining room where we enjoyed a locally sourced dinner prepared by the inns dedicated top notch chef. My traveling companion enjoyed the Roasted Chicken, and I the Pontiac Pork Ribs. We each sampled the other's dinner and agreed that both were excellent, and the mashed potatoes were just as our mother had prepared them.
EVENT PLANNERS TAKE NOTE: Spruceholme has just added a Conference Centre attached to its spacious post and beam repurposed hay barn in a beautiful setting. Call Jane for details
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Spruceholme Inn! Proudly under the new ownership of Jane Toller (Pitfield), great-granddaughter of the original owner of Spruceholme - George Bryson Jr.Once you have been greeted by your hosts, you will be treated to a walk through history, through the time of the great lumber barons and of the opening of the Ottawa River Valley. The rich heritage, the luxury and the stories all come to life as you meander through a mansion that has been meticulously restored to its original splendour. When you enter Spruceholme you are immediately transported to another time and place. In every room you will find pieces of the past, and of George Bryson's legacy. Look for his roll top desk and an autographed photo of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, a frequent visitor to his fellow statesman's home in Pontiac back in Fort-Coulonge's heyday. No matter which room you choose to stay in, you will find Bryson family heirlooms, exquisite comfort and peace. We invite you to share this living museum with us, any time of year. ... more less
