Staying at Cottage in the City was among the highlights of our recent 6-day trip to Toronto. Mardelle and Ron Kish’s warmth and hospitality made us feel as if we were old friends visiting instead of strangers paying for a room. Breakfast each morning featured a different fresh fruit cup and warm entree and an opportunity for leisurely conversation with our fellow guest and sometimes our hosts. Our room was clean & comfortable and the bathroom was spotless. We enjoyed staying in an urban neighborhood that offered excellent restaurant choices, easy access to the subway and downtown, as well as quiet tree-lined residential streets. Room rates were very reasonable (actually, probably too low for the value received) and our hosts consistently went out of their way to be helpful. We definitely recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Toronto who wants a restful and relaxing place to come home to each night...a place that offers a different way to be in the city. We hope our paths cross again in the future. Sandy and Greg

Our recent visit to Toronto was one of our best trips ever thanks to the warmth and hospitality of innkeepers Mardelle and Ron Kish. They opened their hearts and home to us as if we were old friends visiting not paying strangers who found them on the internet. Their house and rooms are beautifully decorated but definitely comfortable. Breakfasts were superb featuring artistically assembled (and varying) fresh fruit cups and a different hot entrée each morning. The inn is on a quiet tree lined street that is close to the subway and an interesting array of small restaurants. We enjoyed our time at the inn and our interactions with Mardelle and Ron and our fellow guest as much, if not more, than any tourist thing we did in Toronto. We were actually sad to go at the end of our stay (and my husband is still raving about Mardelle's breakfasts!) Sandy and Greg C.

My husband and I recently stayed for a few days at this beautiful B&B. It is located on a quiet residential street in a lovely neighbourhood and is close to a park, great restaurants, stores and public transportation routes. Our room was spacious and beautifully appointed with interesting art and nice furniture. Our room, as well as the rest of the house, was spotless. Ron and Mardelle were wonderful hosts - welcoming, warm , friendly and attentive ( as well as very interesting to talk to ). They pampered us with delicious breakfasts each morning and made our stay truly enjoyable and memorable.

We stayed in both rooms and they are are beautiful and spotless. Ron and Mardy went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious, and truly they are the nicest, most gracious hosts we could have imagined. Ron gave us great tips for getting around and things to see, and they were just neat, kind people who were great to talk to. The house is near public transportation and we did not need to drive our car at all during our time there. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and a short walk to Casa Loma. We will definitely stay again on a return trip to Toronto.

I was in Toronto for a seminar recently and booked in for a stay at Cottage in the City. Mardelle and Ron were very friendly and extremely accommodating hosts especially with my request (requirement) for gluten free meal choices. Breakfasts were delicious and nutritious.Together they provided gracious hospitality and a friendly orientation to the neighbourhoods outstanding restaurants and shops. Public transit was reasonably efficient and access was easy and convenient. My room was very comfortable and quiet, conducive to a good and restful sleep. This is a well run, lovely little inn, located in an historically significant neighbourhood that would interest those who have an appreciation for the arts. I highly recommend Cottage in the City and wouldn't hesitate to book in again.

We love staying at Cottage in the City. Mardy and Ron offer warm hospitality and delicious breakfasts. The house and bedrooms are beautiful, cosy, and impeccably clean. The location is close to bus and subway, the neighbourhood is lovely to walk through and nearby St. Clair Street has lots of restaurants worth trying. We look forward to staying at the Cottage again.

I visited Toronto to do the world premiere of my show - Left-Hander in London - The Earthquake in June of 2014. I needed a location that was quiet, nice, that afforded an experience of Toronto's neighborhoods, people and culture with parking and easy access to transit. The Cottage in the City was all of the above and more. Mardy and Ron are very nice , accommodating and welcoming. The house is lovely and on a pretty street in a nice area. They obtained a parking pass for me and I rarely used the car. I went for a walk around the neighborhood almost every day. The bus and streetcar are at the end of the street and the subway is a block or two away. Ron and Mardy were helpful with directions. There are lots of eateries and shops within easy walking distance. I could not have picked a better place. If you are visiting Toronto, check them out. JJ Gufreda, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA

We found this place by accident on a weekend that was insanely busy due to festivals and concerts. It ended up being pretty much our only option, yet had we known it would have been our first choice... It is in an excellent, walkable location and close to transit. The neighborhood is safe and has plenty of restaurants and the like. The breakfast was great as was the hospitality. We would surely stay here again. In fact, I have been recommending this place to all my friends in Buffalo as a great weekend destination.

My son and I stayed at Cottage in the City for two weeks this summer and I highly recommend this B&B to anyone who wants warm-hearted hosts, clean & comfortable bedroom and yummy breakfast. The location is also very convenient to take the subway or a bus and there are lots of affordable restaurants near by. It is located in a safe neighborhood and provides free wifi. Especially, Ron and Mardy were wonderful hosts with good sense of humor. They were always friendly and gave me useful travel tips to enjoy Toronto with my teenager boy.

I recently stayed in Toronto for a 6 day training program, I was recommended Cottage in the City by the facilitator of the training. Ron and Mardelle were excellent hosts, they made us feel completely at home, were friendly knowledgeable and helpful. The food each morning was fresh and abundant and the coffee superb. The B & B is in a lovely quiet neighborhood walking distance to shopping, restaurants and grocery stores. It truly was a Home away from Home.

We recently had a two night stay in the Cottage in the City. It was so charming and very clean. Our room was spacious and beautiful, and the breakfasts were outstanding. Our hosts were very friendly and went out of their way to find us interesting attractions and good restaurants. The next time we visit Toronto we will definitely be staying at the Cottage in the City.

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely house - near to the centre of town, but in a peaceful area with plenty of shops and restaurants. The room was small, but perfectly formed, with antique furniture and a good sized bathroom next door. The homecooked breakfasts were great and Ron and Mardelle were excellent hosts. We would definitely stay here again.
