A Victorian mansion with period pieces. Absolutely this is a must see this turn of The century mansion.

Hello Judy, Thank you for your positive comments about the house. Although the house was built in the late Victorian era (1899-1901), it is also quite Edwardian. In any case, we are glad to hear you think it is worth a visit! Pamela

A little pill known by "Dodd's Kidney Pill" was created by the owner of the Fullford's place. Return to the past and learn about our rich history in this beautiful part of the 1000 Islands.

A tour through this wonderful old home has you imagining how they levied here, and It does feel like a home. Interested and well informed guides really tell the story of the home and it's family.

Thank you for your review of Fulford Place. We hope you will visit again in future - each tour guide tells slightly different stories, so there is always a new nuance to take in.

Minutes from downtown Brockville. Interesting house. Good story. Do the Brockville Ghost Walk first, if possible. The Fulford Place tour hints at a ghost story but you'll more on the ghost walk.More

Does the tea room require reservation? What are the hours and approximate costs per person?

Hi, great question. Unfortunately when we were there the entire tea room was being renovated. Perhaps a call to them directly would yield you better results. Good luck and enjoy the property. Richard and Jill
