Weddings, family gatherings, anniversaries, scouting groups, team building activities, and personal growth retreats… it all happens at Tucker House! Roam our 30-acre property and enjoy the pool, picnic tables, learning stations, and, of course, our nature trails in the forest. Gather around the campfire and create lasting memories.
Tucker House is situated on a magnificent 30 acre property. Surrounded by nature. It’s so calm and quiet, you could not imagine that downtown Rockland is just minutes away. The balance between the many gardens and the wilder nature of the forest offers the best of both worlds to nature lovers. The pavilion, equiped with electricity, lighting and heating, provides the perfect outdoor space for all of your events while being surrounded by nature. During the warmer months you might cool off at the pool or warm up by the fire at the fire pit year round. So many options in one place.
This home built in 1870 is filled with ancestral charm. On the main floor, you will find two large rooms to gather; the Parlour and the double dining room. Both of which may accommodate approximately 20 people. These rooms offer plenty of natural light. They have retained their original woodwork and architectural details from the Confederation era. The main floor also features a handicap accessible powder room while the second floor has two full bathrooms and six bedrooms.
Mr. Tucker’s Room
Capacity 3 to 5: 3 single (twin) beds + 2 pull-out trundle beds
It is believed that Mr. Tucker would have occupied this room. This room features hardwood floors and two east and south facing windows providing beautiful morning light. It is furnished with 3 single beds, with 2 pull-out trundle beds.
This room has a built-in closet that was built at a time when closets were rare and cabinets were more common. Note the vintage light fixture, arched front window, original closet and pass-through door.
Mrs. Tucker’s Room
Capacity 2: Queen size canopy bed
We believe this was Mrs. Tucker’s bedroom and/or a dressing room. It was common for wealthy couples to have separate bedrooms or a dressing room. In addition, this room not only has built-in closets but is furnished with a four-poster bed and a chest of drawers and an antique sofa, which was a rarity at the time.
The Prayer Room
Capacity 2: Single (twin) bed + one pull out trundle bed
This room may have originally served as a small sitting room for sewing or embroidery during the day, or as a room for newborns. It connects Mrs. Tucker’s room with Mr. Tucker’s bedroom and opens to the staircase to allow natural light to enter. Note the heritage woodwork and painted plaster of the arched window that once opened onto a small balcony. This small but charming space is furnished with a single bed and a pull out trundle single bed.
The Blue Room
Capacity 3: One double bed and one single (twin) bed
This room was once a dark pink, suggesting that it was inhabited by the Tucker boys (pink being a masculine color at the time). The single window overlooks the backyard and the forest. We have exposed the original masonry and the decoration has been chosen to highlight the subtle hues of the natural local clay. This room is furnished with a double bed in an antique frame and an additional single bed (not shown). There is also enough space to bring a small playpen or baby crib from home.
The Pink Room
Capacity 6: One double bed with a single (twin) bunk on top, one single (twin) bed with a pull out trundle bed (twin), and another single (twin) bed.
The Tucker children probably once shared this room. You’ll notice the curved wall, designed to accommodate the closet in Mr. Tucker’s room and the small built-in closet for sheets or toys. Two large windows overlook the garden and yard.
The Servant’s Quarters
Capacity 5: One double bed with a single (twin) bunk bed on top, a pull out trundle bed (twin) and a single (twin) bed.
This simple room is located away from the main area, past the bathrooms at the end of the upstairs hallway. Originally, some of the Tucker servants would have stayed here, using the steep, narrow staircase to access the kitchen and prepare meals for the day. Even the servants had small closets – the new fashion in architecture at the time! The three windows make it a light and spacious space. Because this room is nestled away from the main area of the house, it is often a quieter place and popular with families who want to put young children to bed early while the meeting continues on the first floor.
Located on the first floor – Can accommodate 1 + (accessible)
The living room also features 1 expandable daybed. This bed can accommodate those who need an accessible option on the first floor.
We have a large, modern, eco-friendly and functional kitchen for your use. Stainless steel refrigerator, commercial stove, 2 sinks, large island and plenty of dishes and silverware to use during your stay.
Please note that guests must follow health and safety requirements for cooking: no grease-laden steam generation and no cooking of meat with oils. However, simmered and reheated dishes are permitted.
