You never know quite what to expect with an unconventional accommodation, but our experience was one of the best we've had. The boat is located close to everything downtown, a dash to the cable car line, and walking distance to most major attractions. Breakfast was...More

This very special accomodation on the Lake Ontario in the heart of Toronto is fantastic. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. We were guests at their home on their boat. The breakfast was also very, very delicious.

There is not many people that would choose to go to Canada's largest city in the hottest time of the year, but that is exactly where we went. After our long flight we arrived at the Boatel and we were ecstatic to begin our trip....More

About
Description
Enjoy your stay at the most unique Bed and Breakfast in Toronto aboard a 65 foot motor yacht moored in the heart of downtown Toronto. Guests are gently rocked to sleep and wake-up to the smell of freshly brewed More coffee and a gourmet breakfast surrounded by a post card view of the city and Toronto harbour. Leave the car and walk everywhere, shopping, catch a baseball game with Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre, CN Tower, and restaurants galore... all within a short walk or street car access away. Close to the theatre district with many choices of live theatre and musicals to choose from. Take time to enjoy a hop-on-hop-off tour of the city or rent bike to tour the waterfront. Book the whole boat and ask us about having dinner on our skylounge. Take in one of the charters in the harbour for a romantic evening cruise before returning to your own private yacht. Come back to the boat to enjoy the spectacular view from the aft deck and experience life on the water. Warning: marine life is addictive; your first visit won’t be your last. Less
