Conveniently located one block from the centre of Old Town, this quaint colonial home is one of the oldest residences in Niagara-on-the-Lake. It is said that C1797 a home was built at this location for a British army officer; it was burned to the ground with the rest of NOTL by the retreating American troops in the War of 1812, and was among the first homes to be rebuilt in 1818, initially as an inn, a guest house, and then the family residence of Joseph Burns. Today Toscana di Carlotta at Burns House is a popular country inn offering four licensed rooms each with en suites, complimenting guest amenities and a private two bedroom, two bath owner's suite. Off the reception hallway is the "snug", the guest dining room, and living room with its cozy wood burning fireplace; adjoining with gas fireplace is the main floor guest suite. The well appointed kitchen has ample cupboard and counter prep-space; there is backyard access; and conveniently located is the larder and laundry. There is access from the home and outside to the private second floor owner's quarters. The second floor guest suites include two with walkouts to the romantic balcony, the other overlooking the park-like back garden. In remarkably good condition, the home has been pre-inspected and the fireplace WETT certified. Selected furnishings, linens & crockery are included providing a turn-key option. Here is a rare opportunity to become the caretaker of a wonderful piece of historic Niagara. (id:6289)
