Had a wonderful time showing my 4 year old grandson how things were. He was very inquisitive and loved roaming the grounds. Perfect day weather wise. Worth the reasonable cost to get the guided tour with full explanation of all the grounds and house.
Do you love beauty? DO YOU!? Well then, you can shut right up. But the rest of you who DO love beauty, this is where you find it in spades. Beauty and Maple products. If you have the brass balls to call yourself a civilized Canadian, you're going to go here, aren't you? YES YOU ARE BECAUSE BEAUTY AND MAPLE SYRUP OH GOD MMMMMMM!!!!
