Interaction with guests
We will be around as we live here, but on a different floor.
Niagara falls is genuine. It has had its hey day. Lovely restaurants and the falls are amazing. We are the quiet side and Canada is the carnival side. Only a walk away to everything
Our home is in downtown Niagara falls. It is seriously a brilliant location. All of Niagara Falls is very very poor. We only have five houses between us and the strip of restaurants then the falls.
WALK. or ask joe to drive you. We can pick up from airport and train/bus stations. prices in house guidelines.
AIRBNB only cover hosts for what is listed in their rules which means we have to state the obvious. You will need to read it to know the code to enter.
Niagara falls USA is very poor. This is not our fault.
Please do not, rush, thump through the house or chuck yourself onto the furniture.. Show her some tenderness. Walk lightly. This is our home and it is very quirky.
Do not move our furniture around. It is not necessary.
If you feel the urge to use, what is obviously a displayed antique or use 200 year old furniture in a manner harsher than an 1800's gentile lady, then we take it that you understand implicitly that you are agreeing to replace any item damaged at full replacement cost via the AIRBNB resolution centre prior to departure.
We are letting you see the history of the house. The floors are untreated, so it is NOT modern tough polyurethane and none of us can create patina.

There is some very old graffiti on a few rafters which is part of the home’s story but there is no way to know who or when. Please do not add to it by writing/carving on the beams. Which is easy to do because the dark beams are covered in a patina of history. Touch them and you expose the fresh wood underneath. Please don’t. ( This is actually our room, we will notice)
The wooden pegs, and board with a name across it, all came from the walls of the attic and we wish for them to remain here. Please look but don’t touch.
We ask you respect this beautiful old house as she is uncovered again. Enjoy your stay as that is our primary goal. The Niagara falls experience is awesome. Our house is fascinating, and the county of Niagara is poor. See things as they are and make yourself at home here.
