It was a VERY nice and zen experience. We stayed for 2 nights/ 3 days. Rooms are clean, it's quiet and the people are friendly and I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO GO BACK OR TO RECOMMEND TO A FRIEND. The price is also very good.
BRAVO MY STAY WAS JSUT PERFECT. LOVE THE GARDEN. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Room Tip: The top floor ... it has air condionning if you get hot but it's real pretty.

We have stayed at By the Park 2 times. And are completely happy with the experience, rooms, and with the service.

We stayed at 92 Indian Grove. The outside is beautiful. Perfectly maintained. Victorian. Lovely gardens outside and a porch to sit on. Big trees. Quiet street, but central, near transit, near shops. And a private parking space is included with each room at no extra cost.

Inside, the quality continues. We are quite particular and loved that everything is kept in perfect condition. Pristinely clean - couldn't be cleaner, and perfectly maintained. And lovely décor. Hardwood floors, hand knotted woolen rugs, wall paint and millwork that looks as if it was just done. Air conditioned.

Each room comes with its own en-suite private bathroom and shower. There is a kitchenette for every couple of rooms to share, with a full oven/stove, sink, and fridge. And, again, they were immaculately clean.

The first time we stayed in a basement room, which was a great value at about $90.00 / night for 2 people . The second time we splurged and stayed in the Magnolia room - about $122 /night. The décor is Victorian and charming. The king bed was very comfortable. Oak floors. Flat screen in room. Quiet. I liked that there is not a bedspread, instead the bed is made with a blanket tucked in on top that is washed with every visitor. Air conditioner in the room so you have the choice of opening the window or using the air conditioner - even though it was warm outside, we were comfortable with just an open window for most of the 3 days.

Finally, the hosts - Margo and Ziggy are just really nice, making every effort to make you feel completely at home. There just isn't a downside. We often travel to Toronto and will stay at By the Park. Totally recommend it to you.

We needed a room for just one night in the High Park area, and luckily Margo & Ziggy's were able to accommodate us. Once we arrived, we were informed that we were upgraded to their luxury 3rd floor suite, which was totally amazing! I wish that we could have stayed longer than just one night to enjoy every amenity. The room had a huge glass-marble shower, a jet-tub bath, a beautiful fireplace, and a huge enclosed sun patio overlooking the trees in the neighborhood. The gorgeous king-sized bed and the bedding was very comfortable and totally immaculate. They take such good care and pride in their home; we loved the tasteful & luxurious decor. The made-to-order egg breakfast was beautifully presented, hearty, healthy and very delicious. They also brought out freshly-baked vegan cranberry muffins that were SO amazing! We look forward to staying here again next visit to Toronto. Oh, and driveway parking was super-easy, and included in the price of the room. No downtown hotel offers nearly as much for the excellent price. Thank you again, Margo and Ziggy!

Room Tip: If you want to splurge or have a special experience, go for the huge 3rd floor suite! It's total...

Thank you so much. It was a pleasure to share our home and our very best suite (The Loft) with you. Regrettably your stay was so short, you definitely need to visit us again.

Our son actually made the booking while visiting Toronto last week, and we did not know what to expect.
Let me tell you, that this has been our best accommodation we ever had visiting this booming city.
We enjoyed the first (2) nights in one room before moving to the main building where we stayed for an other night.
The rooms are extremely clean, they have a good size and everything is there to make you right at home. The breakfast experience which we shared together with an other couple was excellent, and so was the conversation.
Last but not least, the owners are very charming and professional. They make sure, that you leave with a smile on your face.
Will be back, whenever we don't stay at our son's place and when we need accommodation visiting Toronto.

This was the fourth visit to By the Park for us. We look forward to it as a home away from home and always enjoy seeing Margo and Ziggy again. We choose the non-breakfast option because we like to go to brunch in the neighborhood, especially at the nearby Starving Artist. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and charming, and the back garden and front porch are wonderful places to sit and relax. The house has always been very quiet when we've stayed there and I always sleep far better than I do at my apartment in Chicago. We love the proximity to High Park, and to the Junction and Roncesvalles Village neighborhoods, Its also very close to the train station for those traveling into the city. Every time we stay there we cross paths with interesting people who have also discovered this gem, the best B&B in Toronto.

I chose the option of bed only as opposed to the additional breakfast because I only like coffee in the morning. This room had an additional sort of eating area where coffee and other food could be stored if one wanted. I made myself a coffee in the morning which was very handy. The bathroom was attached to the bedroom and was private.

Everything was clean and neat and had been thought out by the owners for the guest's convenience. In addition, it is right by the subway line so convenient to the whole city but in a quiet elegant neighbourhood near High park.

I definitely recommend it to people visiting Toronto.
