The owners of this B&B clearly pride themselves as much on their breakfast as they do on the bed part. The daily menu consists of freshly squeezed orange juice, scrambled eggs and homemade muffins and jam. It’s the perfect way to start the day before setting out from this leafy and lofty area into one of Toronto’s many downtown attractions. Despite being nestled in the leafy tranquillity of Toronto’s posh Rosedale neighbourhood, visitors are only a stone’s throw away from two of Toronto’s most bustling streets: Bloor and Yonge. The Royal Ontario Museum, Yorkville, the shops on Bloor St. and the Underground City are just a few of the attractions that are within walking distance from Ainsley House.
The stone-lion iron fence at Ainsley House is typical of the homes in Rosedale. At once stately and somewhat foreboding on the outside, yet cozy and quiet on the inside, Ainsley house is just one of many exquisite architectural achievements that can be found while strolling through Rosedale. Inside, Ainsley strives for Victorian elegance. Two of the bedrooms are painted in warm tones, while a third is covered in soft pink. Expect spacious rooms with hardwood flooring. This B&B belongs to a different time and place and the smell of fresh bread baked daily in the kitchen contributes to the sensation.
