Wow, really interesting piece of Canadian history, a must see! The guides are very helpful and knowledgable and they will even turn on the player piano for you if you ask. Parking is on street only.

The personal side of two of our country leaders - a walk back in time to the loveliness of grand homes of a past era. Glad that our the government of Canada preserves these national historic sites. Many children were very impressed too.

Truly enjoyed meandering through the former residence of two of Canada's high profile Prime Ministers, Laurier and Mackenzie King. Nice to go somewhere authentic with no crowds attended by very helpful and knowledgeable staff.

We decided to walk to Laurier House; we are glad that we walked. If we drove, we would have missed that great architecture from the houses in the area. We enjoyed the Laurier House. I really liked the pool table room.
