Our 1904 home has been renovated to offer you modern comfort surrounded by Edwardian elegance. The high ceilings and period woodwork contrast with our eclectic collection of Canadian art. Our home is easy walking distance to all theatres and we have ample angle parking. We are avid theatre goers and members of The Festival's Playwrights Circle. We have programs from past years and texts available in the library and like nothing better than to chat about the season's plays. Albert Square has been featured on the Heritage B&B Christmas Tour and our beautiful gardens were part of the Horticultural Society's 2010 Garden Tour.
We are open for the SSO Celtic Celebration, January 23rd and 24th and are just a few minutes walk from Knox Church where the concert is being held. We will also be happy to welcome visitors to the Canadian Dairy Expo February 4th and 5th.
