A vacation is often necessary (take it from this author; they just got back from Montreal), but sometimes you don’t have the time for a full-fledged vacation. Well, then a little staycation is what you need! There are plenty of spots in and around the GTA that offer you the chance to keep your feet up and enjoy a much needed break from it all. With lovely escapes out of the city, fun nights in Toronto’s lively neighbourhoods, and more great ideas, here are our picks for the best staycation spots!
A Moment in Time Bed & Breakfast
One of Niagara Falls’ most charming hidden gems, A Moment In Time Bed & Breakfast captures eyes as visitors pass by but captures hearts once they enter. Hosts David and Doddy pride themselves in serving a “sumptuous” full breakfast in their elegant 1890’s Victorian dining room.
Where: A Moment In Time Bed & Breakfast, 5982 Culp St, Niagara Falls, ON, L2G 2B5.
Balsam Lake Provincial Park
Balsam Lake Provincial Park is a beautiful park open until Halloween, and is a great place for a staycation this fall! Rent a fully-furnished 4-bedroom rental cottage near the water, or rent one of their campsites near the Trent-Severn Waterway!
Where: 2238 Kawartha Lakes County Rd 48, Kirkfield, ON, K0M 2B0.
The Drake Hotel
A staple of Toronto’s vibrant Queen West neighbourhood, The Drake Hotel is rooted in contemporary art, culture, genuine hospitality and aims to create a unique sense of place; to bridge the art of the moment with intentional hospitality. Executive Chef Laura Maxwell has cultivated a menu that makes The Drake an ideal staycation spot.
Where: The Drake Hotel, 1150 Queen St W, Toronto, ON, M6J 1J3.
The Rex Hotel
Another whimsical hotel located on Queen West, The Rex Hotel has charming suites to spend a night or two in, right in the heart of downtown Toronto! Not only does it have great food and drinks, but hosts live jazz and blues every night; enjoy some great tunes and great times!
Where: 194 Queen St W, Toronto, ON, M5V 1Z1.
Vineland Estates Winery
Nestled on the slope of the Niagara Escarpment, Vineland Estates Winery plays host to an 1877 “wooden cathedral” log barn, one of the top winery restaurants in the world, and an 180 acre parcel with world renowned Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay! Spend the night or a weekend, as that is the only way to take everything in!
Where: Vineland Estates Winery, 3620 Moyer Rd, Vineland, ON, L0R 2C0.

Why not take a break from the stressors of everyday life and pamper yourself with a trip to White Oaks Resort & Spa! Enjoy fine dining at the LIV Restaurant, Play, and the Grow Kitchen & Cafe, while also taking advantage of the indulgent spa treatments!
