Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)

Welcome to Solace on Turnberry!

We are a family-operated boutique hotel & spa located in Brussels, Ontario. In fact, we are located in the oldest building in the downtown core, and one of the very oldest properties in all of Huron County. The building is designated under the Ontario Heritage Act.

Back in the heyday of the late 1800's, Brussels was a boom town, thriving on the region's agricultural sector. Fortunes were being made in exporting timber, wheat and beef across the British Empire. One such fortune hunter was John Leckie, a leading merchant and well-respected town father. In 1876, he launched his own private bank, and built this impressive structure on the main street to house his new venture.

Over the decades, the building has been home to many enterprises, including commercial banks, lawyers offices, pharmacies and jewelry stores. At one time, it even served as the village armory, keeping safe all the town ordinances needed in case of an invasion!

After many years of neglect, in 2005 the building was lovingly restored to its former glory. Since then, it has been owned and maintained by Ainleyville Properties, a partnership of two local families with over 160 years of strong community ties and a devotion to both the history and future of this community.

It is with pride that we offer this experience to travelers from near and far. Come enjoy a taste of rural Ontario's Victorian past with all the modern amenities this region has to offer.

Please contact the establishment for further information about available rooms.
