  • Small little historic site... Do go for the tea!
  • Went for tea and scones. Delicious served by 2 very courteous children.
  • Fun children activities. Great staff.
  • This is a wonderful museum, the house is well maintained and the volunteers are very knowledgeable about the Hutchison family and Sir Stanford Fleming. We enjoyed a lovely tea and delicious scones with homemade jams and whipped cream. YUM! Our server was 9 year old William, a junior volunteer who was very impressive. This is a most delightful and charming historical house and certainly worth the visit. Lynda and Jill

Where to stay in Peterborough

Peterborough tourism relies heavily on the surrounding nature, so most of its accommodations sit outside the city center itself. Your best bet is to look for one of the mid-range inns lining either bank of the Otonabee River, where you'll have easy access to the city's pleasant parks. If you want something with a bit more character, look for private vacation rentals offering river views.
