Not to mention, the night view is a story on its own – you might even hear wolves howling while you’re star gazing.

Romance in Little Portugal
Sometimes a subtle change of scenery is all you need to amp up the romance in your relationship. Ditch your neighbourhood(s) for the weekend and stay in this studio apartment on Dundas West. Steps away from Queen West, Trinity Bellwoods, shops, cafes and bars, it’s the perfect getaway to take without actually having to get away.
Yurt Experience in Northern Ontario
Located on a Horse Sanctuary called Buffalo Farm, this charming yurt near Algonquin is the best option for the active couple who’s looking to explore. Cozy up by the wood-burning stove and then head out for a hike on one of the several trails, go horseback riding, snowmobiling, or dog sledding! The property owners also offer cooking courses and woodworking – you definitely won’t run out of fun things to do.
Beach Waupoos Treehouse
Prince Edward, Ontario
This unique and secluded stilted cabin on a beach front screams romance. Part cabin, part tree house, the quaint abode is right on the water’s edge and has all the right components for some quiet luxury. Read and relax to your heart’s content in a screened room with a daybed and later have a bbq or sit out by the fire pit for even more bonding time.
Art Lovers Rock n’ Roll Apartment
Situated in the budding Ossington and Queen West neighbourhood, this rock n’ roll themed apartment is an art and culture lovers dream come true. If you and your S.O. are looking to explore the 6ix, why not switch things up and do it while staying in a themed room. After some downtown exploring, head back for a romantic night in the David Bowie tribute bedroom (it has over 50 posters of David Bowie, of course!).
Private Island Cabin
Pointe au Baril, Ontario
Really looking to get away? Then why not have an entire island to yourselves! This private island cottage on Georgian Bay is truly an escape from the city. Equipped with the modern luxuries of city living, the property also comes handy with a screened porch for some unforgettable scenic views. *Water taxis and boat rentals are available.
Wellington Carriage House
The 1860s converted carriage house is a truly a unique stay! The open-concept space is fully equipped with a loft, 4-piece bathroom, a fireplace and access to a shared backyard. If that’s not enough to keep you and bae occupied, you’ll be happy to hear the studio house is located in the heart of wine and beach country. Town amenities and the Drake Devonshire are within walking distance, and the Provincial Sandbanks, as well as shopping and food in Bloomfield, are only 15 minutes away.
