Destination Overview: Ontario

For more than 12,000 years people have been habitating Ontario Canada. Even before European settlers, Aboriginals lived on the land and the area that became Ontario has grown and expanded over the years to what it is today.

The more than 250,000 lakes in Ontario contain about one third of the world’s fresh water, so there’s plenty of space to enjoy water-related activities or simply just relax as you watch the breeze ripple waves across the surface.

Ontario also boasts a wide array of theatres and galleries for those looking for an artistic experience. Seasonal festivals occur throughout the province all year long that visitors can enjoy as well.


Vacation rentals in Ontario


As you begin to plan your holiday to Ontario, consider a vacation rental as your place to stay. Ontario offers a wide variety of options, including cottages, cabins, estates, farm houses and other residences.

With so much water to be found in Ontario, staying near the beach or on the waterfront is the perfect way to make the most of your aquatic experience. No matter if you want to lay out relaxing in the sand, hope to catch a few fish or want to take a boat tour, renting a house or bungalow near the water gives you convenient access. You may even be able to rent something with water views so you don’t miss a minute of it.

In the winter, renting a chalet is the perfect idea if you’re planning a ski getaway. After a long day on the slopes, head back to your rental and cozy up with a cup of hot cocoa.

In the warmer months, you’ll certainly want a rental with air conditioning but you can also choose one with a private pool to cool off and get in a little exercise. In chillier weather, nothing would be better than curling up in front of a roaring fire or getting warm in the private hot tub.

With so many residence options, there will be plenty of bedrooms for everyone you’re travelling with, or without. Whether you’re taking a solo trip or coming to Ontario with a group for a wedding or reunion, rentals feature several options for sleep numbers to ensure that everyone is comfortable. Some are even pet friendly so your furry friend can make the trip as well!
