This gem is in a beautiful location on Lake Couchiching. The rooms have been lovingly restored to show life during Leacock's years of living there. They have a very interesting boutique, filled with lots of treasures to tempt tourists.

Great Canadian historic place. Leacock was a Canadian icon of the day. His banking essay is hilarious and should be read by every banker.

Beautiful outdoor wedding on the property. Close to the water front. just a great atmosphere. Only thing that we didnt like was the limited parking. It was a bit tricky for a larger group.
