Collingwood farmhouse description

Highland Creek Farm, since 1861

Highland Creek Farm is a newly renovated century farmhouse, ideal for a family or two.

The farmhouse is beautifully and privately situated on 100 acres consisting of open fields, surrounded by 13 acres of hardwood maple forest, and 20 acres of cedar forest, with a small creek running across the property. The property enjoys wonderful vistas of the surrounding countryside.

Highland Creek Farm is perfect for family getaways, swimming in the large saltwater pool, a weekend of golf with the guys/girls, a base for mountain or road biking, or just as a unique setting for pleasure or business.

Start your day with breakfast in the sun room overlooking the pool.

Lounge by the pool all day, have a hot tub and then enjoy lunch in the large screened summer porch.

If you are feeling energetic, hike the trails through the hardwood maple forest or follow the stream through the cedar woods, looking for the speckled trout and nesting great blue heron. Watch for deer that come down to drink from the stream.

Play badminton or volleyball or ping pong with your guests, regardless of weather, in the huge restored post and beam barn.

Maybe go for a mountain or road bike around the country side. Keep an eye out for local Mennonite families in their horse drawn carriages.

As the sun sets, relax and enjoy dinners in the large dining room with its pine harvest table that seats 14 guests. Maybe one of your guests can play the piano, while the rest of you enjoy a fire in one of two living rooms.

If you want, its only 20 minutes to downtown Collingwood, or 30 minutes to Wasaga Beach, but you won't want to leave the farm.

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: A professional couple with two children in university.

              Why the Owner Chose Collingwood:
              We grew up skiing in winters in the area, but discovered it's fantastic in spring, summer and fall too. Hiking, road biking, riding, fishing, golf or whatever activities you are into. This farm itself has it all - trails in the woods for hiking, fields for views, a freshwater stream, a fully restored historic farmhouse that pre-dates Canada's confederation. And a giant barn for ping pong, badminton, basketball, working out, or just hanging out.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              With trails on 100 acres through the woods and along the fencerows between the fields, you can hike, mountain bike, cross country ski or snowshoe without ever leaving the property. In summer we love to eat all our meals on the screened porch overlooking the pool, or relaxing by the pool with a cold drink. In winter we have lots of guests for dinner in the large farmhouse dining room and relax after in front of the fire with a mug of coffee.
