In the house, you have full access to two large meeting rooms, the Heritage Parlour for meeting in a circle of 20 people or so, and Tucker Hall, great for board room style presentations or a meal for 20-30 people.

Mr. Tucker’s Room
Sleeps 3+ (3 single beds +3 trundle option)Also known as the “Blue Room,” this room features hardwood floors, two windows, and luxurious deep-blue decor. It is furnished with two single sleigh-beds and one single day-bed, all with trundle-beds that pull out from underneath. (Note: Twin bed sheets will fit all beds in this room)
This room is believed to be the primary living space with a built-in closet that was constructed at a time when closets were rare and wardrobes more common.
Mrs. Tucker’s Room
Sleeps 1-2 (One queen-sized four-post bed)
Mrs. Tucker’s room and/or a dressing room; it was common for well-to-do couples at the time to have separate rooms or a separate dressing room. This room has not one, but two built-in closets—a rarity for the time. It is furnished with a queen-sized four-post bed, vintage settee, and original dresser.
The Prayer Room
Sleeps 1 (One single daybed)
This room may originally have served as a small sitting room for sewing or embroidery during the day, or as a nursery for new babies. It connects the dressing room with the master bedroom and opens up to allow natural light into the upper staircase. Note the heritage woodwork and painted plaster of the arched window which once opened to a small balcony. This small but soulful space is furnished with a single day-bed.
The Guest Room
Sleeps 2-3 (One double bed and one single bed)This room was once a deep pink colour, suggesting that it was used as a bedroom for the Tucker boys (pink was a male colour at the time). The single window looks out toward the back yard and forest. We have uncovered the original brickwork and the decor was chosen to highlight the subtle teal hues in the natural local clay. This room is furnished with a double bed in an antique bedframe and an additional single bed (not shown). There is also enough space to bring a small playpen or crib from home.
The Children’s Room
Sleeps 4-8 (One twin-double bunk with trundle option, one stand-alone double bed, one simple single bed)
The Tucker girls likely shared this room once upon a time. Note the curved wall, shaped to accommodate the closet in Mr. Tucker’s room, and the tiny built-in cupboard for linens or toys. Two large windows look out at the garden and yard. This room is furnished with a vintage brass double bed, a simple single bed, and a large bunkbed with stairs leading to a twin bed on top, a double mattress below, and a single trundlebed that pulls out to make a seventh sleeping space.
The Servant’s Quarters
Sleeps 4 (Single beds)This simpler room is located at the far end of the house, down the corridor and past the washrooms. Originally some of the Tucker servants would have stayed here, using the plain (and steep!) staircase to access the kitchen and start the meals for the day. Note that even the servants had small closets—the new fashion in architecture at the time! In keeping with the original design, the furnishings are less ornate, with simple single beds, but three windows make this a light and airy space, with the room facing a small grove of trees. As it is away from the main area of the house, it is often a favourite quieter space for families wishing to put young children to bed early while the family reunion continues downstairs.
Main floor daybed – Sleeps 1-2
For additional sleeping spaces, the parlour features a single daybed. Upon request, we can provide an additional mattress and the daybed can pull out to become a king-sized bed.
We have a large, modern, eco-designed, and functional self-catering kitchen for your pleasure. Stainless steel fridge, commercial range stove, 2 sinks, large island and plenty of dishes and silver ware for you to use during your stay.
