La Toscana di Carlotta
Where History Meets Hospitality
La Toscana di Carlotta at Burns House is 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.
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!
This charming historic Niagara-On-The-Lake bed and breakfast has been newly renovated and redecorated to offer our guests a relaxing, comfortable and memorable visit to “the prettiest town in Canada”.

Experience the Candlelight Stroll around town, the Santa Claus Parade, the Shaw Festival’s reading of “A Christmas Carol”, Holiday concerts, and more. 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. It is believed by the Historic Society that the original cabin was used by Col. John Butler, the leader of Butler’s Rangers, as the secret meeting place of the militia. 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. Much of the present structure is a result of an expansion in 1814. 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. Guests are treated to original exposed beams, wide plank pine floors, and many other period features, yet get to experience all of the modern conveniences such as air conditioning, private baths and a beautiful fireplace in the guest parlour.

Just a short drive away, on an incredibly scenic road along the Niagara River, is one of the natural wonders of the world – Niagara Falls. Other area attractions include Casino Niagara, the Butterfly Conservatory, and historic Fort George. The house was started in 1880-81 and became the summer home for Mr. Gustav Fleischmann of the famous Fleischmann’s yeast company in Buffalo N.Y. Originally the house, named “Clarette” at that time, stood on the entire 4-acre block with gardens and stables at the rear. Staff cottages and a guesthouse can still be found on properties adjacent to the original manor. The home has glorious views of North America’s oldest golf course, where play started in 1875. Even then people wanted to build a home on a golf course! Over 100 years later, Jane had a dream that changed both our lives and the destiny of this manor. Jane recalls: “I saw myself in the home in which I would grow old! In this dream I saw my eldest daughter as a young mother, children in tow, walking up a garden path lined with peonies with myself and Steve standing on a large white verandah, welcoming them.” The search was on! Several months later, while cycling through Niagara-on-the-Lake, the then empty house was discovered and the conversion to Lakewinds began.
