Langdon Hall (1898) is just a five minute drive from where I live, but if you are an hour or so away from Cambridge, Ontario, this is a lovely place to go for a day trip. If you live further away it’s a luxurious overnight or weekend getaway.
My dear friend Janet (passed away in 2007, only 55 years old) was my kindred-spirit sister. We were the same age and said we were twin sisters born from different mothers. It was Janet who introduced me to Langdon Hall. Over the years I have been there several times for high tea with a friend or a group of friends.
We’ve enjoyed some sunny warm September days; it’s still summer till the 23rd and I refuse to wear autumn clothes yet. My dear friend Maggie and I had a ladies’ afternoon and relaxed on the deck sipping our drinks and having a pleasant conversation.
Maggie is always stylish, I just love her outfit: beautiful net top (Spanner) with white crop pants. I’m glad I bought this dress in spring, made by a local seamstress. I wore it in NYC in August. It’s my go-to sundress, and you’ll see it once more before I put my summer clothes away.
The grounds are meticulously kept and it feels like the garden of a Gatsby movie.
This grand estate was the summer place of an extremely wealthy family over 100 years ago. Today it is the exquisite Langdon Hall Country House Hotel and Spa (since 1989).
