The History

According to Newmarket registry office records, in 1828 Reuben Burr sold the property to the Cosford family. They were prosperous carriage makers and named their new home "Oakland Hall" after their ancestral estate in England.

In 1928, George Leacock, a brother of the famous humorist Stephen Leacock, purchased the property. He changed the name to "Sunny Lea Farm", built a stable and rode with the local elite. Thirty years later he sold his home.

In 1968 the McClure family purchased what had become known as the "Red House". It was here that Aurora artist Dorothy Clark McClure established her Red House Studio.

In 2002, after almost 200 years of life in the house, Tom and Irene Ntoulas transferred it into the "Oakland Hall Inn" where it will be recaptured with splendid food, service and ambience for many years to come.

After working for more than 30 years in the restaurant business, most people would be ready for retirement. But in many ways, Tom Ntoulas feels he is finally bringing together everything he has come to value in fine dining at the historic Oakland Hall Inn.

He personally checks on each table, ensuring the meal is meeting or exceeding expectations. The staff is equally attentive and knowledgeable.
