Downtown Toronto Bed and Breakfast
The Cottage in the City is a restored turn of the century home on a tree lined residential street located in the midst of the old city of Toronto. It is close to all means of transportation: subway, bus and streetcar. The Pearson International Airport is a scant 30 minutes away. Your Toronto bed and breakfast, the Cottage in the City, is located in the unique neighbourhood of Wychwood - an area of charm and craftsmanship, early homes nestled together with grand mansions and dozens of ethnic eateries. Many of its residents are accomplished artists and media celebrities.
Inside our welcoming bed and breakfast in downtown Toronto, you will find a warm decor complete with a private collection of artwork; an eclectic mix of modern, folk, aboriginal and primitive pieces collected over a period of 30 years.
Your Toronto Bed and Breakfast bedroom furnished with antiques
Plump goose down feathers welcome you to a cozy night's rest as you sink into our antique queensize sleigh bed. Rest at ease amid hand crafted quilts and original works of art. Weather permitting, the linens are dried outdoors for a "cottage fresh" clean fresh scent. The subdued historic wall coloring is aglow in the morning sunlight of this southern exposed room. Cuddly terry robes await you in the spacious closet and the aromas of breakfast beckon you to the anticipated day ahead.
A turn of the century Jacques and Hayes double bed creates the authentic Canadian ambiance of this room. Overstuffed spreads and soft linens beckon you to a peaceful rest. A full size wardrobe equipped with fluffy terry robes is at your disposal in this cozy setting. A large window overlooks an English garden which bursts with color all spring and summer.
A quiet room decorated with original Caribbean artwork, Mexican masks, and antique typewriters is available for guests of the bed and breakfast. It's just the place to sit and read or hook up your personal computer and contact home or business. The library here is a collection of Canadian materials with an emphasis on Toronto's past and present. You can even search out a Hemingway novel or Marshall McLuhan book.
When you need to soak away the rigors of a day of shopping and sightseeing - we have just the right bath! Our antique cast-iron claw-foot tub and European shower is just the place to relax with your choice of aromatherapy bath salts, bubbles or herbal oils. Other amenities include shampoos, lotions, soaps and hairdryer. Forget any essential toiletry? Just ask...
Morning sunlight streams through the stained glass window as you are served your fresh brewed breakfast beverage. Our dining room offers you comfort and elegance. Each diner is served on English bone china with cloth napkins and real silverware. The blend of an art deco chandelier and lit candles add to the ambiance of "service to our guests". Seasonal specialties grace the table with home cooked flavor and Ontario grown and organic fresh fruits and vegetables. Your holiday is a time to relax and enjoy the temptations of our kitchen.
Our tempting breakfasts will call you to the dining room with the succulent aromas of gourmet ground coffees, herbal teas or oven baked Irish soda bread. Seasonal menus consist of Ontario grown sweet strawberry crepes, orange-lemon croissant souffles, pea meal bacon (a Canadian specialty), Johnnycake with pure maple syrup or a Cottage favorite plump blueberry buttermilk pancakes. An array of healthy and organic fruit cups are de rigor at the Cottage, too. Requests including food allergies or dietary needs are also taken into consideration.
