The Cottage is an intimate up-scale downtown accommodation built during the last century and totally restored. We have two intimate rooms each furnished with early Canadian antiques. Guests occupy the second floor which includes a common room with artifacts and original artwork. Relax in our soaker claw-foot tub. Escape to the front porch in white wicker chairs with a morning coffee. Breakfast is superb. Natural fruits and vegetables create the basis for our menus which will beckon you to the breakfast table set with English bone china, silver, and cloth napkins. The dining room features an art deco chandelier, polished wood floor and stained glass window.

My son and I stayed at Cottage in the City for two weeks this summer and I highly recommend this B&B to anyone who wants warm-hearted hosts, clean & comfortable bedroom and yummy breakfast. The location is also very convenient to take the subway or a bus and there are lots of affordable restaurants near by. It is located in a safe neighborhood and provides free wifi. Especially, Ron and Mardy were wonderful hosts with good sense of humor. They were always friendly and gave me useful travel tips to enjoy Toronto with my teenager boy.

I recently stayed in Toronto for a 6 day training program, I was recommended Cottage in the City by the facilitator of the training. Ron and Mardelle were excellent hosts, they made us feel completely at home, were friendly knowledgeable and helpful. The food each morning was fresh and abundant and the coffee superb. The B & B is in a lovely quiet neighborhood walking distance to shopping, restaurants and grocery stores. It truly was a Home away from Home.

We recently had a two night stay in the Cottage in the City. It was so charming and very clean. Our room was spacious and beautiful, and the breakfasts were outstanding. Our hosts were very friendly and went out of their way to find us interesting attractions and good restaurants. The next time we visit Toronto we will definitely be staying at the Cottage in the City.

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely house - near to the centre of town, but in a peaceful area with plenty of shops and restaurants. The room was small, but perfectly formed, with antique furniture and a good sized bathroom next door. The homecooked breakfasts were great and Ron and Mardelle were excellent hosts. We would definitely stay here again.

Cottage Country Breakfast
The season dictates our breakfast menus. Winter mornings with steaming oatmeal, cinnamon pancakes, or pumpkin waffles. Spring and summer brings fresh fruits and vegetables to the table in strawberry crepes with fresh creme sauce, buttermilk blueberry pancakes with berries, or omelettes with spinach and home-grown tomatoes. The fall is apple time at the cottage with fresh picked Ontario apples baked and carmelized to complement crisp french toast.
