Meet me at Tucker House!
Scout groups, educational workshops, camping, outdoor summer camps, strategic retreats, silent and meditative retreats, it all happens at Tucker House.
Roam our 30 acre property and enjoy the fire pits, pool, picnic tables learning barns, and of course the nature trails!
In the house, you have full access to two large meeting rooms, Heritage Parlour for meeting in a circle of 20 people or so, or Tucker Hall, great for board room style presentations or a meal for 20 people.
These rooms feature original woodwork cut and milled on-site, lots of natural light, and design details by a Confederation-era architect. We also feature an accessible washroom downstairs. The upstairs level has his and hers full bathrooms, close to the bedrooms, for overnight groups.
All rentals are under a single contract holder who signs and is responsible for the rental group. A non-refundable administration fee is due in advance, with the remainder due on the date of the retreat, payable by cheque to Tucker House Renewal Centre. The contract holder must be a responsible adult who is on-site for the duration of the rental.

Please bring your own sheet, pillow case, comforter and toiletries. Our bedding is decorative only.
“Mr. Tucker’s Room” Sleeps 3+: 3 single beds + 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 the vintage light fixture, arched front window, and original closet and pass-through door.
“Mrs. Tucker’s Room” Sleeps 1-2: one queen-sized four-post bed.
We believe this to have been Mrs. Tucker’s room and/or a dressing room; it was common for well-to-do couples of the time to have separate rooms or a separate dressing room. This room has not one, but two built-in closets – a rarity for 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, which also has a single trundle bed underneath.
“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.
“The Children’s Room” Sleeps 4+: 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 Servants’s Quarters” Sleeps 4 in 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+
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.
