History of The Colonel’s Inn
(fomerly the McDonnell House)

The original house, built in 1835, was owned by Colonel Alexander McDonnell and his wife, Isabella. It consisted of two rooms downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs. Located close to Fort Wellington, the house has strong military ties. It has been reported that soldiers were billeted in the basement.

The house was willed to the eldest McDonnell daughter, Sarah, who was a music teacher and organist for St. Mark’s Church. It is rumoured that during this time, the house served as a young ladies academy. In 1893, Sarah left the house to her sister Flora, the last surviving McDonnell. Flora owned the house until her death in 1905. A niece sold the house to Dennis Higgins in 1908.

During the year 1909, the manor underwent major renovations. An addition was built, as well as three bathrooms, a wrap-around porch on the first level and 2 sun porches on the second level. A Carriage House and greenhouse were also built on the property.

The interior of the house reflects the wealthy, masculine taste of this time. There are silk paintings on the games room ceiling. There is faux leather trim work surrounding the walls in the games room and dining area, and beautiful oak paneling on the lower level.

Hospitality, safety, comfort and a warm welcome await your visit to The Colonel’s Inn.
