Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: We are a brother and sister who have 'held onto' the family cottage. We grew up in the area and have cherished memories of the cottage and the area. We wish to continue to make memories there and share with others.

Why the Owner Chose Port Colborne, ON, Canada:
The Mason Cottage is an important piece of history because of its historical design particular to this part of the country. The shores of Lake Erie have provided many years of enjoyment - from sand castles and sailing, to snorkelling and canoeing. In addition the area of Niagara boasts many activities and is such a beautiful natural area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our family has enjoyed many morning walks on the beach followed by a beautiful brunch made from food purchased at the weekly farmers market. Building a fire and sitting with a glass of wine gazing at the stars. Sitting on the porch and listening to the night sounds - frogs singing, insects buzzing and by day, hear the music of multitudes of song birds.
