Welcome to Kingsbrae Arms. It was our dream to create a property that would provide the experience of staying among friends in a private home. Our purchase of this venerable turn-of-the-century house in 1996 was something of a rescue effort. The building had been abandoned, and sorely neglected for nearly ten years before we came along and were captivated by its charm. Now after extensive restorations, this family home is once again receiving and entertaining guests. Our goal is to provide the ultimate country house experience.
At the turn of the century, St. Andrews had become something of a spa. Because of its location on a peninsula surrounded by trade winds and the sea, it offered relief from hay fever. William Van Horn himself, the man responsible for connecting the Canadian coasts via rail, built a spur from the main line to St. Andrews. There he built himself a palatial home where he spent some of the happiest years of his life. Soon wealthy families were booking parlour cars transporting whole households to St. Andrews for the summer months. Back then, locals would gather at the train station to watch the “swells” get off.
We are proud and pleased to be the trustees of this lovely property. During renovations, we took pains to preserve the historic charms of this house, and at the same time update its comforts to twenty-first century tastes without intruding. We invite our guests to enjoy this house as if it were their own home…and hope they find that same spirit here which so many have enjoyed for so many years. We invite you to book with us now.
Welcome to another, less hurried, era
Bienvenue dans une ère différente, moins pressée…
