The Guild Inn in Scarborough was build as a private estate about 1914. It was bought by Rosa Hewetson in 1932. She and her husband Spencer Clark turned it into a haven for artists. During World War II it was a military hospital.

During the 1960's Clark collected many stone facades from buildings being demolished in downtown Toronto and created a unique architectural collection on the grounds.

The Clarks sold the home to Metro Toronto. A 6 storey 100 room east wing was added in the 1960's. The hotel and restaurant were closed in 2001. It's a pity. The restaurant was very nice and it is a great location for a resort type hotel yet readily accessible to downtown via the Guildwood GO station.

This has been completely redone and now appears to be an event hall of some sort... I was down there the other day and someone was having a wedding!

An amazing site to explore and some great photographic opportunities at literally every turn

A sign at the park says that the building is being restored back to it's original state.

The building is back to the original footprint - new construction should begin shortly.

I also passed this place over the weekend, very active looking, many people on the property and it looked like there was some sort of construction going on at the Inn itself.
