Where we are located
“Perhaps best of all, I can walk into town, to restaurants and shops . . the historic area and waterfront. I walked to the theatre for a performance of “Anne of Green Gables” one evening and enjoyed a moonlit stroll home.” - The Globe and Mail, Toronto
We are located in a quiet residential neighbourhood on a secluded acre estate, (built in 1889 for Sir Samuel Cunard's grandson Arthur Peters), just a fifteen minute walk from Confederation Centre of the Arts and downtown restaurants and shopping. Four blocks away is beautiful Victoria Park on the harbour, featuring a water's edge boardwalk, swimming, horseshoes, and tennis on lighted courts, along with groomed cross country ski trails in winter.
