While we love Toronto for its rich museum culture, colorful nightlife and thriving culinary scene, sometimes an escape to the great outdoors is a well-deserved respite from city life – and we’re not talking about drinking rosé at Trinity Bellwoods or to visit the High Park Zoo.
Ontario is well known for its vibrant cottage culture – with thousands of Canadians escaping to cottage country every year to sample the tree-lined landscape and rugged wilderness that Canada has become synonymous with – and the abundance of Airbnb rentals to choose from reflects this. There are endless options within easy driving distance of downtown Toronto, so we’ve rounded up some of the best options for you to consider, including family finds, romantic rentals for two, and everything in between.
Each of these great Airbnb selections is run by Superhosts. This means you won’t have to waste time chasing your host or showing up at a property that doesn’t match the listing description; Superhost title guarantees that the property has at least a 4.8 rating, no cancellations, and a response rate of at least 90% for your convenience.
Read on to discover some of our favorite Ontario cabin rentals within three hours of Toronto, from elegant lakefront A-frame cabins to whimsical tiny homes.
While we haven’t stayed at all of the Airbnbs featured, unless otherwise noted, these listings are verified based on Superhost status, amenities, location, previous guest reviews, and decor.
