A spectacular highlight of the home is the back garden which sits on the banks of the Niagara River, offering views directly across the border to Fort Niagara in the US. HISTORY This historic residence, The Foghorn Station, was a semi-industrial structure built in 1904 by the Department of Marine and Fisheries Canada and operated as a warning signal for marine vessels. It remains as one of the very few original structures of its kind still standing in the country. It is a shingle or Colonial style of architecture, popular at the turn of the century, housing heavy machinery including air pumps and fog alarm until decommissioned in 1978. The building was then converted to residential use by the station keeper who also operated the two dock area lighthouse. The property was acquired by the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake in 1982 and is an excellent example of adaptive re-use of an industrial building for residential purposes. After extensive renovations, the Niagara Foundation, stewards of Niagara-on-the-Lake's heritage for almost 50 years, is proud to offer the opportunity to enjoy a unique experience in this true heritage gem. THE SPACE Foghorn house is perfectly situated on the water, providing you with a beautiful view of the sunset every night. As you walk into the home, you are welcomed into the dining room which leads into the fully-equipped kitchen. Flowing from the dining room is the living room with a TV and a fireplace for those colder nights. There is also a queen-sized pull-out couch. The main floor bathroom provides you with a bathtub, perfect for a relaxing night with a glass of wine. On the second level is the master bedroom with a king-sized bed, fitted with luxurious linens and bedding. The bedroom has a beautiful view, overlooking the Niagara River. Upstairs is also the master bathroom with a shower and an intimate seating area for you to lounge, or read a book. Through the french doors, you enter the backyard with seating and BBQ for you to enjoy the view of the river and Fort Niagara. Foghorn House couldn't be a better choice for a relaxing day (or days) away from it all. Your host, Mark, is happy to suggest activities and help you explore to make the best of your visit...including recommendations for local pubs and restaurants. We hope to hear from you! Guest access: Full home, BBQ, free wifi, and free onsite parking. Interaction with guests We will greet you at the home, and show you around. Additional amenities: Full KitchenMore
