Doors Open Waterloo Region – The Waterloo Hotel

The Waterloo Hotel - Waterloo Ontario

The Waterloo Hotel – Waterloo Ontario

The Waterloo Hotel was stop number 8 of our Doors Open Waterloo Region Tour. The front part of this building was completed in 1890 so it has been a prominent feature in Waterloo for some time. The building was purchased by the Webers in January of 1997 after it sat vacant for 7 years. It has been painstakingly restored to its Victorian past with modern comforts. The wonderful thing about this tour is finding these treasures that we were unaware of before.

It was a beautiful weekend up on Colpoy’s Bay. On Sunday a cold front blew through and we had a beautiful sunset which we took in from the end of the dock.
