The tour is self-directed.


Wait times to enter the homes may be minimized by creating your own route. Houses do not need to be visited in the order provided on the ticket. Also note, the map is not to scale.


Dress for cold weather in the case of longer wait times and for walking between some of the homes.


Please respect parking by-laws and do not block neighbouring driveways.
