Our family loved this property and the location. Our kids enjoyed being next to the canal and identifying the ships that passed. We also enjoyed being so close to shopping and the beach! The beds were comfy and there was plenty of storage space for our things. Thanks again Ted!

The building was originally a Canadian Bank Of Commerce, built in 1920, complete with a vault on the main floor. The second floor, originally the residence of the bank manager, is now Pilot Lodging, a fully furnished suite for short term accommodations for tourists, visitors, business travellers, cyclists, hikers, birders and boaters. The municipal transient boater docks, the Greater Niagara Circle Route Trail and the Port Promenade are directly in front of the building. Port Colborne is a working port with more than 3,000 ships from more than 50 nations transiting the Welland Canal annually, right in front of the building. During a summer festival called Canal Days, the tall ships dock in front of the building as 300,000 or so people visit the area.The Sugarloaf Marina, horseback riding, fishing and beaches are minutes away, while many Niagara Region Wineries are a short drive away.
