HISTORICAL PODCAST

 From 1873 to 1890, this house was the summer residence of Sir John A. 

Macdonald, first Prime Minister of Canada.  The story goes that Sir John A. Macdonald had asked his doctor to find him a place where he could recuperate and relax.  Together with his wife, Lady Agnes and his daughter Mary, they made the long journey with their entourages (secretaries, butlers, nurses...).  Sir John A. Macdonald and his family were tenants of this modest farmhouse for nine summers and bought the property afterwards in 1882.  Following its purchase, Lady Macdonald doubled the size of the house by adding some rooms to the west wing (where the living room and the guest rooms are located now), as well as the beautiful gallery which has a spectacular view of the Saint Lawrence River and the mountains of Charlevoix.
