Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Montgomery's Inn (Etobicoke)

Tea is served

Some events are more interactive than others at Montgomery's Inn but you can always count on their tearoom to complement your visit to this old Inn, dating from the 1830's. Most historical buildings that we can visit in the region used to be private houses. The Montgomery family lived and made a living at Montgomery's Inn. The rooms' settings are therefore different than what we're used to seeing. There's a small ballroom. The guest rooms hold many beds, reminding us that in those days, you rented a place in a bed, not a room! We pre-registered to attend their Christmas event, when crafts and games were organized for young visitors. We made New Year's crackers. We created a game made out of a button and a string to take home. We learned old-fashioned games. Kids ground spices, grated lemon and rolled dough in the kitchen. Then, we went to the tearoom which includes a wide fireplace where tea and cake (affordable, nothing fancy) is served by a costumed volunteer. Note that the treats you get can be either store bought or home-made depending on the availability of the volunteers.

Tea’ anyone?
