Located in the heart of Maynooth, an arts community with galleries and shops along the main drag, our house is located less than 45 minutes from Algonquin Park. We have trails and lakes and a vibrant night life on weekends at the hotel. Canada's Group of Seven painted in the area and there are many of their works of our main street. The two of us ran a guest house just outside of town for 19 years and welcomed over 1000 guests from Europe, Australia, the U.S. and Canada.
Owing to sensitivities, we ask that our guests refrain from wearing scented colognes, perfumes and body and hair products while under our roof. It will make a big difference in our enjoyment of your stay.
Born in St. John's Newfoundland and raised in its tight knit Jewish community of 45 families, I moved to Regina, Saskatchewan at the age of 7 and to Toronto when I was 9. I met my life partner in 1981 at the Parkside Tavern on Yonge Street and we lived together on Bloor Street West before moving to Banff in 1985. We lived and worked at The Banff Centre until moving to Maynooth in 1988. We opened Wildewood Guest House in 1992 and hosted 1000 visitors from all over the planet. We moved in to downtown Maynooth in 2012 and opened Wildewood Gallery in 2014.
