Built in 1891 for a successful doctor, the Bonnevue Manor is a classic example of late-Victorian architecture in the heart of Parkdale. During its restoration in 1984, the owners worked hard to keep many of the period details intact, giving visitors a taste of a Toronto where streetcars were drawn by horses, and subways were still a dream.
Guests who walk slightly north from the B&B will find themselves in the middle of one of Toronto’s most exciting emerging neighbourhoods. Parkdale is home to many of Toronto’s hottest art galleries and shops. After dark, the neighbourhood really comes to life with an artistic crowd packing into many of the watering holes that line Queen Street West. The B&B’s west end location also offers a less crowded but equally charming lakefront.
A Real Looker
The B&B’s antique décor and furniture makes it look like a page out of Better Homes and Gardens, or Martha Stewart Living. Fortunately, the owner has made a number of tasteful renovations that provide modern comforts without sacrificing historical charm. The house also includes an enjoyable front porch and deck for warmer days. The reasonable prices and perks include private baths, afternoon tea, and freshly baked goodies for breakfast, are what make the Bonnevue not just a find, but keeper too.
