Welcome to THE BUTLER HOUSE HISTORIC BED & BREAKFAST (formerly known as SkyeHaven)! English Country charm in the heart of Historic Old Town. This charming historic (circa 1787) Niagara-On-The-Lake bed and breakfast has been newly renovated and redecorated to offer our guests a relaxing, comfortable and memorable visit to &ldquo the prettiest town in Canada&rdquo . We are a short stroll to the Shaw Festival Theatres and the quaint downtown shops, and offer quick access to the hiking trails, bicycle trails, and wineries. A lovely 3 course breakfast is served at 9 each day, with fresh home-baked goods, coffee and tea available from 7:30. The original structure of The Butler House was built by Nat Barnum sometime around 1787-1789 as a one room cabin (which is the present guest living room). No streets had been laid out at this point in time, and the cabin's front door would have been between the present living room and dining room. During the War of 1812-1813, it is possible that the cabin was unoccupied, because it does not appear to have been burned by the Americans in Dec. of 1813, as was most of downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake. It is believed by the Historic Society that the original cabin was used by Col. John Butler as the secret meeting place of the militia. The original pine floorboards used on the second floor are of random width, up to approximately 20 inches, and are said to have been salvaged from the ruins of the burning of Niagara-on-the-Lake during the War of 1812. Our three guests rooms are: The Blue Room - Located on the ground floor, the Blue Room offers a beautiful Queen Bed, with high quality linens, a settee and second sitting area.
