Stayed one night in queen room. The house has lots of character and was in a very convenient location to walk downtown. But despite it being windy and cool outside, our room was stifling hot through the night. Only two windows open a few inches,...More

Thanks Steve for your feedback. We didn't expect such heat on the weekend, and we normally do provide fans in each room. Our apologies for the absence of some cooling device. Appreciate your note. Ross & Alicia

About the neighbourhood
Midland is the largest port on Georgian Bay. Once the hub of the lumber and ship building industry it is now the gateway to the Muskoka and 30,000 island tourist region. Georgian Bay and the 30,000 islands offer the finest fresh water cruising in the world. The Town of Midland, just 90 minutes north of Toronto, is the perfect home base for exploring this beautiful and historic region. The Captain's House is just four blocks from Midland Harbour where you can book day cruises on the Bay, charter fishing boats and rent small craft. We're two blocks away from King Street, Midland's main drag, with it's great restaurants, shops, pubs and cafes. The Tay Shore Trail, built on an old railroad right of way, runs along the shore, past Ste-Marie Among the Hurons and Martyr's Shri... more
