Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: I've been renting Blue Pioneer Chalet since I purchased it in 2008. I live in Toronto where I rent residential apartments, run a travel company and teach cycle safety in the summer and skiing in the winter. I've spent a fair amount of time in Collingwood over the past several years and love it there! As such I love to share it with others and hope they get the same enjoyment I do out of it
Why the Owner Chose Collingwood: I purchased this particular property for a number of reasons. I saw a need for larger properties in the rental market as well as personally having an extensive network of family and friends that it can accommodate. The location is excellent, at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, 2 blocks to the Blue Mountain Inn and another block to the Village at Blue. Views of the mountain are unobstructed and being at the end of the cul-de-sac, its unlikely that anything will ever be built up in front of it. I love the feel of space in the chalet and particularly love the large table in the kitchen where I've squeezed in as many as 14 people on several occasions for great meals.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet: The huge deck at the back of the house allows lots of room to relax, BBQ and watch the tennis in the courts behind the house. At the front, the patio offers spectacular views of the sun setting over the mountain ridge! Perfect for pre-dinner cocktails. The master bedroom is spectacular with high ceilings, a chaise-lounge and a unique large ensuite with a double-size jacuzzi tub. It's so nice to hang out in the living room in the winter with a glass of wine, snacks and friends in front of the river-rock fireplace I recently had built. There are also many little spaces to hide out in if you want some alone time. Then there's the billiards room in the basement with a 2nd kitchen space. The layout is fabulous! I'm a skier and cyclist so love that I can step out the door to participate in the activity of the day without having to get in the car unless I choose to do so. For golfers, there are at least 7 courses in the vicinity. The village is vibrant if I'm looking for energy, or I can relax in the quiet of the chalet, depending on my mood. Since everything is so close others in the group can come and go as they please.
