The Destination
Drive less than an hour from Toronto, up the shores of Lake Ontario and into the town of Port Hope, and you'll encounter a place that time forgot. Recently voted Best Destination in Canada by Reader's Digest, the city is now home to about 16,000 residents. But its particularly slow growth in the late 19th and early 20th centuries resulted in downtown Port Hope retaining its roots. Today, 300-plus structures bear historical significance, more than anywhere else in the country, while the town's location at the confluence of the Ganaraska River and Lake Ontario give outdoor enthusiasts as much to look forward to as their culture-vulture counterparts.

The Digs
Built in 1840, the Plantation House Bed & Breakfast is one of these beautifully preserved structures, featuring a brick facade, original hardwood flooring, and mint-condition period furnishings to match. It's just steps from the downtown historical district, though much of the property has been renovated to provide guests with modern amenities and conveniences—a cozy sun room, for example, and a totally remodeled kitchen.

Guest rooms also retain the rich history of decades past, with armoires and other antique furnishings adorning the space. And in the subway-tile bathroom, you'll find a Jacuzzi tub and Crabtree & Evelyn bath amenities. Breakfast each morning, served in the sun room or on the porch overlooking the gardens, is a three-course gourmet delight, much of it made from local and seasonal ingredients sourced at the farmers' market.

  • "Port Hope is a great place to get away and its greatest asset is its people. If you're suspicious of the locals' easy smiles, well, don't be. It's just that they really are a happy bunch and truly pleased to meet you."
