We stayed 4 nights and totally enjoyed our stay! Margo & Ziggy are amazing hosts who truly made us feel "at home". Each morning we enjoyed wonderful breakfasts with choice of eggs, or tasty french toast, side orders of toast , orange juice, delicious coffee via French press! The B&B is a victorian styled home with beautiful furnishings and architecture. Nicely landscaped grounds. Located near High Park (Toronto's largest public park) ideal for nature walks, strolls, or jogs, etc.... Rapid transits is a short walk and many good restaurants in the area. Free off street parking! We will definitely be back and look forward to staying here again!
As a frequent traveller to Toronto, I try to make my stay as relaxing and as uncomplicated as I possibly can. By the Park is my favourite spot to stay. Margo and Ziggy are always the most welcoming of hosts, and I feel like a friend in their home. Every detail is well executed and thoughtful. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable, and the big bubbly bathtub is great after a stressful day. It is close to public transport and offers beautiful areas to take a relaxing walk. Next to High Park and the lovely stately homes in the streets next to it. I always recommend By the Park.
Always happy to stay here! The location is beautiful and always kept in fantastic condition. Margo and Ziggy are very friendly and helpful and it is a nice touch to see the furry friends. You are made to feel at home while you are here.
We required a place to stay near High Park and selected this BB. We were not expecting very much and we were there as a result of some unfortunate circumstances. I can say this place exceeded my expectations in every regard. It was a very beautiful home, that was taken care of meticulously. The hosts, Ziggy and Margo, were very nice and accommodating. I can honestly say that if we had to stay in Toronto again, this would be the first place on my list.
This was our first time at By The Park, but from now on we will definitely choose to stay and relax here any time we are in Toronto. Margo and Ziggy have done a beautiful job restoring this 1910 home in this gorgeous, walkable neighbourhood, one street away from the forest pathways of High Park. They have made the whole place a treat for the eyes, and the bedrooms are all comfortable and attractive. Their friendly hospitality and willingness to help out with information and suggestions adds to the ambience. For those coming from and getting back to Pearson Airport, it is so handy to the TTC subway station at Keele, and to the Bloor UP Express station off Dundas W. And it has good subway and streetcar connections to city centre.
