My Mother, daughter in law and I toured the boathouse this past weekend. Yes, everyone is correct, Anne is a fabulous tour guide and made the one hour tour utterly fascinating (which was so nice because our tour of FLW's Graycliff in Buffalo back in November 2012 had a poor tour guide and it really makes a HUGE difference). My mother and I are FLW "Groupies" and this was the final property in Buffalo that we had to see to check them all off our bucket list. Our daughter in law came along to see "what all the FLW fuss is about" and was genuinely impressed with the beautiful lines and "hidden aspects" that FLW put into this property, which we found out from Anne was one of his top ten favorite designed buildings! Who knew?! The lights in the locker rooms were spectacular and it was so nice to be able to sit in a FLW chair in the dining room as the majority of his furniture is not able to be touched at most of his properties that we have previously toured. The view of the river is delightful with the Peace Bridge to Canada in the background so it's a great setting. If you are a FLW fan, make sure you put aside a couple of hours to come and visit, it will not disappoint. It is a $10 fee per person to visit and take cash just in case as the day we visited the credit card machine was down! Thanks to Anne for advising us that a FLW designed gas station will be finished this summer and available to view at the transport museum in downtown Buffalo - so we will still have one more FLW building to see next time we return to Buffalo to visit our grandkids :-)
