Closed For Renovations
Jan 1 – Feb 13 all-day

Dear Guests,

We wanted to express our sincere gratitude to the many residents and visitors of Saugeen shores who have supported us since we purchased the Walker House in September 2013.

We have tried hard to renovate and refurbish this beautiful landmark in Southampton to serve you better. Our hope has always been to build a state of the art kitchen and create a surrounding where our guests could enjoy their special life events, from birthday celebrations to weddings and anniversaries. We cannot count how many of our community members have a story to tell about time spent at the Walker House.

Our time has come to build the new kitchen so our team can work in an environment with air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter. Beyond a new kitchen, we will be constructing new washrooms for our guests in our lakeside room, along with additional accessible washrooms. Our working environment for our Walker House team and our guests will be much improved and more efficient to better serve our community.

Construction of our kitchen will begin in September as we build around our current facility so we can remain open as long as possible! We will be closing the Walker House on January 1st for approximately six weeks so the existing kitchen can be removed and the interior finished. Our target date to reopen is February 14th but we will ensure we keep our guests updated through facebook and our website during that period. We are working on a building that was constructed in the 1800’s so we will do our best at being on time!

We cannot thank the community enough for the support you have provided – it has been overwhelming and we are forever grateful. Southampton has become a destination for travellers like we have never seen before. Our best kept secret that living in Saugeen Shores is amazing, is no longer a secret.

A sincere thank you for all of the encouragement, support and commitment you have provided to all of us. We will do everything in our power to minimize our closure so we can re-open and continue to serve our community!

Warm regards,

From the Walker House Team
