The city purchased the building in 1984 and fully restored the structure to its original design and textures thanks to fundraising efforts by members of the Manitoulin Historical Society and local businesses. It has been rented several times in the last thirty years mostly to families new to the city. In summer 2016 until now it served as the company home of Manitou Tourism CAO Winter Silversmith until other accommodations became available.
The house is thirty metres by thirty metres by twenty-three metres high, remains by far the largest privately occupied home in Manitou, GCG, but surprisingly only takes up 255 prims. The parcel is massive at 6,416 square metres and includes riverfront access, nearby bridge to downtown Meaford and a free parking space for the renter down on the street south-east of the manor. Privately owned farms are located south and east of the parcel, riverfront to the west and parkland to the north.
Manitou Tourism has stated that several conditions are attached to the rental of this house. Due to the special conditions potential renters must contact the CAO first to be approved before they can rent the location. "The renter must be a family or couple, two or more members, not just an individual. The renter will receive one thousand personal prims to decorate with but the structure, textures, and landscaping on the parcel can not be changed. The rent is higher than other residential rentals in Manitou, GCG because of the prime location and size of the building at MC$ 250 per week" said Mr. Silversmith.
