We stayed in Jackie's B&B in Markham for 11 nights. The hospitality was outstanding, the room and bathroom were clean and neat. The living room was very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. We felt like home away from home.

My wife and I had a wonderful escape at Jackie's. Jackie is very hospitable and accommodating. The room and bathroom was very comfortable, spacious and clean. The view outside was breath-taking. We had a wonderful time strolling and chatting by the stream at the end of the secluded back yard. It felt like we were in the country, far away from the hustle & noise of the city, yet it was only 20 minutes from Toronto. We already made plants to come back in a few months for another escape.

A perfect hideaway in the city. Surrounded by nature and parks. The hostess Jackie is absolute wonderful. Her attention to details made our stay a truly memorable one.

My friends and I stayed one night in this suburban family house about 30 min drive from downtown. Jackie and her husband Peter accommodated us on a very short notice and had no problem with our late night arrival. They are such a nice couple and shared some very useful information with us about Toronto. The rooms were simple, clean, and neat with homelike feel. (As a matter of fact it was better than my own home.) If I ever go to Toronto, I will stay at Jackie's again.

What a warm and hospitable welcome to Canada. A spacious, very clean and comfortable en-suite room awaited us at Jackie's in a quiet residential location, yet within easy walking distance of Unionville Main St with a choice of bars, restaurants and shops. We really enjoyed our stay at Jackie's. It was a very relaxing home from home with use of a spacious guest living room with satellite tv. In the well equipped, modern kitchen, a good choice of breakfast cereals was available, along with a cooked breakfast followed by fresh fruit, tea, coffee or juice. Jackie's willingness to share her local knowledge was invaluable and she found out any information that we required. A very helpful, accommodating host, we've no hesitation in recommending Jackie's B&B and would definitely stay again.
