With a panoramic view of the canal and Bridge 21 from your windows, your apartment is on the promenade and steps from the shops, pubs, restaurants, trails and marina.

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 travelers, cyclists, hikers, birders and boaters. The municipal transient boater docks, the Waterfront Trail, 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 the Canal Days Marine Heritage festival in the summer, 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 Niagara Falls and many Niagara Region Wineries and craft breweries are a short drive away.
Guests have private access to a self-contained fully furnished apartment on the entire second floor and come and go as they please. A second bedroom with a full size sofa-bed is now available on the ground floor. Free, secure indoor storage is available for guest's bicycles and basic bicycle tools are available. Free laundry facilities are available to all guests.
