great report thanks. I still don't know much on how the old building piece ended up in this park? Anyone know who's spearheaded it?

The Guild Inn's website has not been updated to show recent progress on the restoration and facility expansion here. Has anyone been by in the last while?

I've got a invitation to attend a wedding here in May 2017 ... so hopefully they are well underway or else there would be no "happily married couple"

Update:
It was 1914 when Colonel Harold Bickford constructed an Arts and Crafts-style manor in what is now Scarborough's Guildwood Park neighbourhood, though after a full century of changes in ownership and use, the property that become known as the Guild Inn had seen far better days. Mid-1960s additions, a 2008 fire, and years of neglect took their toll on the property's quaint aesthetic.

By the property's centennial year in 2014 the situation had grown grim, and the City of Toronto initiated a management plan for the rapidly-deteriorating site, with a firm proposal to revive the site by Dynamic Hospitality and Entertainment Group announced the following year. With City approvals, restoration began on Bickford House, while the demolition of the building's later additions was conducted through late-2015, paving the way for a $20 million redevelopment that has since transformed the property with both refreshed heritage character and modern event spaces.
