So often we forget how many gems are in our own backyard. There are so many great destinations from Toronto that make awesome weekend trips that we have come to love over the years.

Located in the heart of downtown Port Hope, Hotel Carlyle was originally built in 1857 as a bank.

Their rooms were recently renovated and we were lucky enough to stay in one of them!
