General Description

Where History...

Welcome to La Toscana di Carlotta at Burns House, one of the oldest homes in Niagara-on-the-Lake, whose deed dates back to 1793. Local historians say it started off as a home for a British army officer, only to be razed to the ground with the rest of NOTL by retreating American troops in the war of 1812. It was among the first few homes to be rebuilt in 1818, initially as an inn of sorts, a guest house, and was then bought as a family home by local merchant Joseph Burns.

...Meets Hospitality

And today? This quaint colonial home gathers its 200-year history and meets the hospitality of Tuscany. A rebirth of sorts under the auspices of Carlotta Cattani, a Florentine who has spent most of her life welcoming and entertaining guests, and her husband, Zuhair Kashmeri. We invite you to experience Tuscany in NOTL - everything from Italian breakfasts to Italian linen and amenities... but most of all Tuscan hospitality!
