Christmas Brunch At Elm Hurst Inn & Spa


  Earlier today we went to a lovely Inn in the town of Ingersoll  about half an hours drive called the Elm Hurst Inn  &  Spa , a wonderful big old Victorian mansion  .  Some of our neighbours who are also our friends , Papa  , myself and his parents  get together every Christmas time for a meal , chat and a laugh .  Sometimes it is at each others homes for pot luck Christmas and sometimes it is at this wonderful Inn !

It looks like a lovely place. My parents had friends in Ingersoll, but I've never been there.

It looks like a special place. We had heard about it when we lived in the region, but we never managed to get there.

My husband grew up in Ingersoll and we have been back for a few Pipe band reunions and unfortunately to bury his mom and dad and to just visit. I have seen this lovely Inn on our travels but have not had a chance to stay or have a meal. Your post has inspired me to do just that the next time we are in the area. Thank you for posting.

What a beautiful place. It would really be nice to go there for a meal. It's fun to do something like that with a group of friends.
