Tour Tips

While on the tour, please respect the privacy of the homeowners who have graciously opened their homes for us.

This is a self-guided tour. Use the map inside your ticket to plan your tour. Start at the home of your choice. Please allow approximately 4 hours to complete the tour. Your ticket allows you admittance through each of the homes once. Your map will be stamped at each home you enter.

No photography or video is allowed inside/outside the tour homes. A gallery of pictures will be available on the website after the tour.

For everyone’s enjoyment, please turn off your cell phone while touring the homes.

At the entrance of each home, you will be asked to remove and carry your footwear in the shoe bag provided at the first home that you visit. Take the shoe bag with you to each home.

We suggest that you wear footwear that is easy to remove and put on.

Washroom facilities are not available for use in the tour homes.

Regrettably, we are unable to accommodate wheelchairs or children under 12.  Pets are not allowed.

Should we experience inclement weather, no umbrellas will be allowed in the homes or in tote bags. They should be left outside the front door and picked up after you exit the home.

Please dress accordingly as you may encounter outside wait times at some of the tour homes. We appreciate your patience as the home host monitors and controls traffic in the homes.

Parking in tour homes driveways is prohibited. Parking may be limited at some sites. Carpooling is encouraged.

Please respect the hours that the tour homes are open for viewing.

And most important, have fun and make a day of it! The day tour runs from 10 am to 4pm. Visit the Gift Boutique at Willow Springs Winery and plan to stop off at Latcham Hall, centrally located in downtown Stouffville for complimentary coffee. While there, browse for unique Christmas gift selections and pick up seasonal sweet treats from the bake sale to enjoy over the holidays!  Cash only please.
