Pilot Lodging provides short term accommodations on the Welland Canal in Port Colborne. The building was 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 apartment overlooking the canal, available 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. During the annual Canal Days Marine Heritage festival, the tall ships dock in front of the building as 300,000 or so people visit the area.
Port Colborne is a working port with more than 3,000 ships from 50 or so nations transiting the Welland Canal annually, and your apartment provides a front row seat.
The Sugarloaf Marina, horseback riding, cycling and hiking trails, fishing and beaches are minutes away, while many Niagara Region wineries are a short drive away. See the apartment, check the availability calendar and make a reservation from our web site at http://pilotlodging.ca
