One time residence of Charles Easton Spooner, and home to his minature railway with Topsy. On his death the house passed to his sons Percy & Charles Edwin. They lived in it for a while and then sold it to Randal Casson, a solicitor with the partnership Breese, Jones & Casson.

Situated on the opposite side of the harbour to the FR station and high above the slate wharves on Y Garth it was, and still is, just about the most imposing house in Porthmadog. With a telescope it would have been possible to see much of what was going on at Boston Lodge.

It is now a nursing home.
