The top 5 Airbnb listings near Toronto

Airbnb listings near Toronto are positioned perfectly for weekend getaways, but they can also serve as an alternative to sleeping on an inflatable mattress in your in-laws living room when the holidays come around. In any case, these properties are a lot more interesting than your average hotel.

Here are my picks for the top Airbnb listings within a two hour drive of Toronto.

Treehouse Retreat
Go out on a limb and book this adult-sized treehouse and cabin located on 100 acres of forests, fields and walking trails located in Durham (the town not the region) about two hours northwest of Toronto. The treehouse sleeps two in the upper loft and another two in the cabin, plus the property boasts a pool, outdoor fireplace and hammocks.
