Niagara-on-the-Lake house description

Niagara Falls is just a 20 minute drive away. The drive takes you through the wine region and past several of the area's 50 plus wineries, all of which will welcome you in for a tasting. The Shaw festival is at the heart of any Niagara on the Lake visit with plays by George Bernard Shaw and contemporaries. Go to the Shaw
web site to view a list of plays and buy tickets. Buy your tickets early however as they sell out quickly.

The war of 1812 between the British and the USA was fought right on this ground. The town was burnt by retreating Americans in December 1813 (We have forgiven them!) I find Pottery shards whenever I am gardening.

Walk or bike the flat streets and enjoy the history.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: My wife and I love Niagara on the Lake and we love to restore historic homes. We also like to see people enjoying their vacation. We have been able to accomplish all of the above by purchasing lovely old homes in the heart of old town. We treat them like our own second home and decorate them the way our own home is decorated. I hope you enjoy Casabalnca cottage and Marrakech Mansion as much as we do.

                  Why the Owner Chose Niagara-on-the-Lake:
                  Love the old town, love restoring historic houses and love being able to walk everywhere

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The gardens - you will love the flower gardens at both homes
