Welcome to Spruceholme Inn

Proudly under the new ownership of Jane Toller (Pitfield)
great-granddaughter of the original owner of Spruceholme - George Bryson Jr.

Once you have been greeted by your hosts, you will be treated to a walk through history, through the time of the great lumber barons and of the opening of the Ottawa River Valley. The rich heritage, the luxury and the stories all come to life as you meander through a mansion that has been meticulously restored to its original splendour.

When you enter Spruceholme

you are immediately transported to another time and place.

In every room you will find pieces of the past, and of George Bryson’s legacy. Look for his roll top desk and an autographed photo of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, a frequent visitor to his fellow statesman’s home in Pontiac back in Fort-Coulonge’s heyday. No matter which room you choose to stay in, you will find Bryson family heirlooms, exquisite comfort and peace. We invite you to share this living museum with us, any time of year.

Bryson’s Bistro du Bucheron

We are pleased to announce the opening of Bryson’s Bistro du Bucheron in August 2013. My great-great-grandfather George Bryson Sr’s 1850 hay barn has been relocated, reassembled and beautifully reinvented as a restaurant.

Join us on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for Lunch from 11:30am to 2:00pm and Dinner from 5:00pm to 8:00pm and Saturday for Dinner from 5:00pm to 8:00pm with musical entertainment and Sunday for Brunch from 9:30am to 1:00pm and Dinner from 5:00 pm to 8:00pm.

Please review an article in The Equity about how we built a new restaurant for the Inn from an original barn.


The Spruceholme Inn and Bryson’s Bistro du Bucheron sit on picturesque grounds, surrounded by century-old trees that provide a lovely setting for your special day. Our heritage buildings and garden form the ideal backdrop for an intimate wedding.

Whether you choose to have your ceremony in the gardens, in the historic barn or in our formal parlour at our elegant Fort Coulonge Bed and Breakfast Inn, we can help you plan your special event to ensure wonderful memories.
