The dining room, living room and library are all on the main floor allowing lots of living space. The new flat screen TV is connected to a HD feed so the picture is perfect! The phone system will allow you to call about 60 countries free of charge and the Wi-Fi signal is excellent.

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 both by purchasing two 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 Historic Old Town, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON, Canada:
When buying or renting it is all about the location: This house is 1 block from Queen Street, the grocery store and the Golf Course. The Royal George Theatre is a block away! You can also enjoy dining at home in the sunny private side garden with Moroccan table and Weber gas BBQ. The 6 Muskoka chairs on the Lake side of the property provide a great spot for afternoon reading or wine tasting while you wave at the horse and buggy crowd. The front porch is my favourite for morning coffee. Marrakech Mansion is in the heart of the Heritage district the perfect spot to stay when visiting our town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the largest flower gardens in Niagara on the Lake. The old roses that were saved when we renovated the garden are spectacular. We have also planted hundreds of Daffodils, tulips and other spring bulbs the early season the Aconites were in the garden when I purchased it and have prospered, look for them in March as the snow is melting. Peonies and flowering shrubs keep colour in the garden all summer. You can expect to see me cutting grass and gardening on Friday.
