Airbnb of the week: an 1870s home for just under $400 a night in Toronto

This row house in Corktown gives you an authentic glimpse into an old Toronto neighborhood of historical years gone by. The home is beautiful to boot. 

The old Victorian is impeccably-styled, from the marble-topped Knoll Saarinen table to the sleek Jonathan Adler chandelier, you won’t be disappointed.

Move on if

You don’t want to share the bathroom. While sharing is caring, sometimes with bathrooms that’s not the case.
