About us

Welcome home!


 The financial genius behind the creation of the Canadian Pacific Railway, Lord Mount Stephen, built this home in 1888 for Clara Symes also known as

la Marquise de Bassano.
The building still features its original woodwork and stained glass and has preserved much of its 19th century character. A distinctive opportunity to breath in the history of old Quebec. Welcome home!
