About Us

Born and raised in Scotland, your hosts, Ed & Irene have also lived in Bermuda and Southern Ontario. They are now pleased to call Niagara on the Lake home. They came to Canada as a result of Ed being transferred from Edinburgh to Toronto with the Bank. Irene was a teacher but decided to join the bank as Ed was getting transferred so often.

Ed made a career move to Real Estate Appraisal in 1990 and retired as President of his Appraisal Company in 2011 to enjoy a quieter life in Niagara on the Lake.

Both are avid travellers having toured the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, USA, Canada and the Islands of Hawaii.

Irene enjoys baking while Ed has taken a number of courses in Asian Cuisine.

Having stayed at many B&B’s on their travels, they understand travellers’ needs while away from home and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you to Abacot Hall.
