About Pillsbury Guest House

Have you ever wanted to just get away to...
write that book?
finish that painting?
originate a work of art?
think through that invention?
solve the mystery of the ages?
just enjoy some old-fashioned rest and relaxation?

This is the place to come down off the merry-go-round!

The house was built for and was occupied by Grand Trunk Pacific railroad dignitaries and their families for a century. If this home could talk (and in some ways it does) it would disclose the conversations, dreams, and plans of Joel H. Pillsbury, 1st Assistant Harbour Engineer (the original builder) and Charles M. Hayes (founder of the Grand Trunk Pacific). No doubt they spent many hours sitting and troubleshooting their aspirations and hopes for the city of their dreams. Joel Pillsbury was a city planner and designed the house with the four upstairs gables facing the four points of the compass.
