My husband and I stayed at Swan's End for 3 nights after our wedding, and we had such an incredible experience. We were immediately blown away by how impeccably decorated and beautiful the place was, how welcoming and friendly our hosts Kiloran and Geoffrey were, and how cozy and comfortable we felt - we really did feel at home.

It was a good thing that Geoff, our host, told us that there was a 20 year waiting list to get a property on the island. Otherwise, the place is so beautiful, we might have considered never leaving. Algonquin Island is a great place to stay to see Toronto from a different perspective. While lying just a short ferry ride... More

We had been staying on the Toronto Islands for 5 days and liked it so much we extended our stay by booking in at the Swans End. The house is perfect, and in many places that is a recipe for frosty stares when you approach something you might soil with your hands. Not here. From the moment we arrived Kiloran,... More

I had the pleasure of staying for a weekend with my 4 girl friends at Swan's End. It was amazing how after just a 10 minute ferry ride from Toronto we were enjoying the silence, nature and the beautiful surroundings; not to mention our accommodations at Swan's End. We felt so welcome from the minute we arrived on the doorstep.... More

Swan's End is the perfect place to get away from the big city without the hassle of traffic and airport delays. Only a 10 minute ferry ride from downtown Toronto, this B&B is a close commute for anyone who lives in the city and a worthwhile excursion for out of towners who want to escape the bustle of Toronto for...

My husband and I recently booked ourselves in the Swan's End guesthouse for a little weekend getaway from the city. We've been to the Toronto Islands several times before but only for days trips. I've always loved the fact that it felt like you were miles away from the buzz of city, after only a short ferry ride, so the... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
