Guildwood village was developed around the Inn, starting in 1957 with the famous "Avenue of Homes" display of upscale homes. The community introduced a number of new ideas in subdivision design, including winding roads and cul-de-sacs to reduce through traffic, and underground power and phone lines. The subdivision was also entered through the former gates of Toronto's Stanley Barracks(New Fort York), which had been salvaged and re-erected at the entrance to Guildwood Village after all but the officer's quarters were demolished in 1953. These gates, now called the "Guildwood Gates" still provide a unique and grand entrance to the community at the corner of Kingston Road and Guildwood Parkway.
In the heart of the village is the Guild Inn, a former arts centre and hotel inside Guildwood Park, which is operated by the City of Toronto. The Inn was closed in 2001 but the City has now approved a plan by Centennial College to build a Hotel, Restaurant, and Conference Centre on the site.
Just west of the Guild Inn is Sir Wilfrid Laurier Collegiate Institute, the high school for the Guildwood area.
