"Andrea was a great host. The pictures don't do her home justice, her place was very clean and well decorated She was very flexible about my check in time and also went out of her way to make me feel at home. In fact she offered me one of her larger suites instead of the one I had originally booked for convenience sakes. She had clean towels and homemade iced tea to boot. Definitely would recommend staying with Andrea if you are planning to go to Collingwood!" - Jason
"I had a short but sweet stay in Collingwood at Andrea's place. She was a gracious host and the room was absolutely adorable! It was clean, comfortable and quiet. I will definitely stay here again and recommend the place to others. Can't wait to return!" - Rebecca

Which is very private and comfortable with a great living room area, large TV, DVD player, bed and dresser. Good spot for yoga and meditation!
The Collingwood Marina at the famous Terminal Building is a 5 minute drive. From there, there is a great walking / biking trail that follows the bay. Great for birding, photography and fishing along that route which links with the Rail Trail that goes to Meaford. You can also launch your canoe or kayak right here in town.
Check out Georgian Bay area happenings to plan your trip: Visit Georgian Bay and/or My Collingwood websites, and view my Guest Guide at the bottom of the page with places to see and eat.
Collingwood has some amazing restaurants (check my Guidebook), Jazz in the summer and of course the world famous Elvis Festival. Summer is an amazing time in the area for events.
Sunset Point Beach is a 10 minute drive and a wonderful spot to catch one of our beautiful sunsets, eat from the best truck food around, bicycle and walk.
The Blue Mountain Village is just a 10 minute drive and a hub of activity year round. You can attend many free concerts, mountain biking, zip lining and Scenic Caves Adventures.
The thermal baths and message therapists at Scandinave Spa are also a few minutes away. There are also very good Yoga Studios, massage therapists and gyms in-town.
Explore the Georgian Triangle by car or bike. The Grey Highlands scenic routes with Vineyards/apple orchards, and water falls are great any time of year.
Craigleith Provincial Park and the gallery hub of Clarksburg. Rent or drop your canoe or kayak in Heathcote or along one of the access points on the Beaver River.
I think this would be a great place for a weekend get-away, if you're looking to stay for a while or want the comfort of being able to come and go over a longer period of time.
For people who come to Collingwood on business, are relocating and are in the in-between stage, or would prefer to live in a friendly home instead of buying or renting a small condo.
The foodie eat-in kitchen is shared, and you are most welcome to prepare daily meals and snacks, or settle down with a tea for the night. If you plan to cook I will be sure to make room in the fridge for you.
There is a washer and dryer for you to use, and if you're here on business I also have a steam cleaner and WiFi printer.
There is a mud room for snow gear, bikes and such.
Interaction with guests
It is important that we all feel comfortable and at-home. Interaction is as much or as little as people want. I like to interact but also value my privacy, and will yours as well.
Other things to note
I have had students stay here for a month or the summer for their last year placement, and other for a workplace assignment.
If my other listing for the bedroom with a private sitting room is not occupied another friend could rent that space and you could all stay here. Check my other listing for details of the suite (link below.)
While I don't make breakfast, you are welcome to make yourself a tea or latte, and have some breakfast before you head out to enjoy the area. My treat!

I live in Collingwood, Ontario better known as Ontario's playground 2 hrs north of Toronto on Georgian Bay.
I am an easy going person and enjoy interacting with people of all ages and backgrounds, and have had the pleasure of hosting people from around the world who found their way here on business, pleasure and competitive sporting events.
Collingwood is where I belong with its wonderful and eclectic mix of galleries, artisans, great shopping, cafes and eateries. As a photographer I appreciate variety of beautiful trails that go one for miles for casual strolls, hiking and biking during the three seasons, and great winter hiking, cross-country and downhill skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing.
In short, Collingwood is a great four seasons resort town minutes from Blue Mountain and Wasaga Beach, hiking and biking trails and some of the best golf courses in Ontario. The fall drives are amazing and you'll find cyclists maneuvering hills through spring, summer and fall.
Its a wonderful place to live and to visit that is rich in community and creative pursuits. I would love to share my love of of the Georgian Bay area with you on your next visit.
My motto is to invite only those into your life that come with peace and harmony, and to be that person as well. I have traveled a fair bit in my life and have stayed in guest homes and B and B's. Its a great way to get an idea of the area and the people that make up the community.
Collingwood and the Georgian Triangle is the perfect place to visit for fun in the sun at Wasaga Beach, cycling the Georgian Trails or the Beaver Valley and Grey Highlands. There are many summer activities in Collingwood like the Elvis Festival, Jazz at the Museum, Art Shows or the fun and concerts at Blue.
Winter is special here with great skiing, snowshoeing and snowboarding at Blue Mountain. Minutes from Cranberry if you`re coming up for a wedding or event.
The Collingwood Bay is home to a Yacht Club and Marina with public launches and is popular for power boating, sailing, kayaking, canoeing, wake boarding and even wind surfing when the winds are just right.
If you want to take a day trip, you can launch your canoe or kayak on the Beaver River through three seasons or cycle through gorgeous side roads and landscape.
Wasaga Beach, the worlds longest sandy beach on a inland freshwater lake is a 10 -15 minute drive with many of its own attractions and events.
We have great events throughout the year to partake in and some very fine restaurants and eateries. Jazz at the Museum and much more. There is always something going a Blue for singles, couples and families.
The Collingwood Elvis festival is not only the largest and most well attended in the world, but also one of the oldest. Last year we were proud to host Priscilla Presley and Christopher Amerouso, and several of Elvis' co-stars.
From May to October enjoy fresh produce at the farmers market with many local artisans displaying their unique offerings.
As a photographer, I couldn't imagine a better place to live. I am proud member of the BMFA Blue Mountain Foundations of the Arts. We have several art shows a year displaying exceptional local talent across many mediums. Its a great place to visit to get a sense of the spirit and soul of the community.
