Photo Shoots in Guild Park & Gardens

The original two-storey “Bickford” residence was constructed in 1914. It was Brigadier General Harold Child Bickford’s home along with his family and 5 siblings. Ranelagh Park, as the estate was called, was a large property that extended to the Scarborough Bluffs. In 1921, the family moved to Buffalo, NY for real estate investments and polo. The main building was organized in a butterfly plan, wrapping around an entrance drive and porte-cochere. The ground floor was organized around a large entrance hall with a wide wooden staircase on the left side and library on the right.
The Guild Inn Estate will be the perfect setting for any social gathering. This magnificent complex can be used as one large space or divided into variations of four smaller spaces to create the perfect setting for bar/bat mitzvahs, birthday parties, prom, formals, anniversaries, or any milestone event of any size.
The Guild Inn Estate will house state of the art audiovisual technology, with built-in screens, projectors, and blackout blinds. The newly built event space will have the capabilities of being used as one large room for trade shows, seminars, product launches, and gala dinners for up to 1,000 people, or small individual spaces to accommodate breakout sessions, more intimate meetings, and dinners.
We’re putting the health of our people, our clients and the broader community first. As a result, our staff will be working remotely and response times to emails and phone calls may be longer than normal.
Please allow 1 – 2 business days before resubmitting an inquiry. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
