You can spend the night at this urban cottage in Toronto

Toronto is brimming with Airbnb options in downtown condo towers, but the pickings are considerably slimmer if your primary criteria is unique places to stay. Condos are great for business trips, but those looking for a sense of the city's character must look elsewhere.

airbnb cottage torontoOne of my longstanding favourite listings in the city can be found down a laneway in the Annex on Croft St. Described by its owner as an urban cottage, that's exactly what it is, complete with wood beams and a small wood-burning stove.

airbnb cottage torontoWhat's the best feature of the space?

It's oozing with rustic charm, from the fireplace to all the wood and skylights. The dedicated yoga area is a bonus.

The shared bathroom won't appeal to those who crave privacy. Anyone looking for an upscale short term rental will want to move on.
