About the Property
Chalet/Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)
One of the few beach front properties in the Town of Blue Mountains municipally licensed for short term accommodation.
Enjoy the open concept living and dining area on the main level, with pine beamed cathedral ceiling, hanging fireplace and slate floors. Cook simple fare to gourmet in the fully equipped maple granite kitchen with energy efficient appliances. In the warmer months, dine outside on the spacious deck with natural gas BBQ.
Relax in the upper floor master bedroom overlooking the lake and enjoy breathtaking sunrises from the walkout balcony. The master features a cathedral ceiling, queen pine sleigh bed, with eco-friendly soya mattress. There are two other bedrooms on the upper level both with cathedral ceilings - one with bunk beds, and another with a single/double bunk.
A convenient main floor bedroom, with 2 piece ensuite, has a queen bed.
Enjoy movies and satellite tv on a new 40 inch flat screen in the lower level recreation/entertainment area. DVD, VCR, foosball table and board games are provided.
Listen for the eerie call of the loons piercing the morning mist. Beachcomb for fossils on the private beach and rock groins. Stroll at dusk westward from the Christie Beach Conservation Authority on the long sandy beach, with the brilliant summer sun slowing dipping behind the hills of Cape Rich, then return to roast marshmallows over glowing ambers in the cottage's beach fire pit. Count the stars in the Big Dipper, and experience the August meteor showers, and on occasion, the dancing Northern LIghts.
Little ones will especially enjoy their very own Adirondack chairs and table. Take them on special excursions to the playground and sandy beach at the nearby Christie Beach Conservation Authority and scamper up the creek bed with its very interesting geological formations.
For skiers and bikers, store your equipment in our shed specifically designed for ski and bike lock-off.
High speed internet is available.
SPECIAL NOTE: We are a senior friendly facility, with an entrance ramp, main floor bedroom, and main floor bathrooms with safety devices. The lake front deck has been constructed at the same elevation (same level) as the main floor. Child safety gates protect the staircase accesses. The beach has been graded with a gentle slope allowing easy access to the waterfront.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

About the owner: We (Sue and Richard) hail from Southwestern Ontario and Trinidad respectively, and currently make Toronto our home. The family is an eclectic group of avid skiers/snowboarders, swimmers, scuba divers, hikers, sailors, musicians, food and wine lovers!
Why the Owner Chose Blue Mountains, ON, Canada:
Sue vacationed in the area during early childhood and loved the majesty of the Bay and the friendly atmosphere of the local villages and towns. There was always so much to do - from skiing to sailing, or visiting the Tom Thompson Gallery in Owen Sound, the Apple Festival in Meaford or the Elvis Festival in Collingwood. Here the children learned to downhill ski and had their first taste of live theatre. Our favorite outings – to cross-country ski or hike the Kolapore Uplands through the towering hardwoods and protective cedars.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
At the Loons you can enjoy a true four season experience – bike through the white apple blossoms of spring along the Georgian Trail, soak up the summer sun on the cottage’s private beach or windsurf at nearby Craigleith, cast your rod for trout and salmon in the nearby Beaver or Big Head Rivers, absorb the colours of autumn while hiking and biking the Kolapore/Bruce Trails, experience the fun of downhill skiing at the nearby resorts and cross country skiing on the numerous trail systems. The cottage is advantageously situated to enjoy many local ski resorts - Blue Mountain, Georgian Peaks, Alpine, Craigleith, Talisman and Beaver Valley. Nearby Thornbury, Meaford and Collingwood offer full services and lots of things (and in fact, too many things!!) to do – golfing at several major championship courses (Lora Bay Raven Golf Course, the Georgian Bay Club, and Monterra), antiquing, river and lake fishing, Collingwood’s “Elvis” Festival, Meaford’s Georgian Bay theatre at the historic Opera House, international film festival and Apple Harvest Festival, wine tours at Coffin Ridge Winery, trapeze rides and the Scenic Caves at Blue Mountain, canoeing with Free Spirit Tours on the Beaver River, and the list goes on..... And of course, good dining and shopping. Georgian Bay is delightful for swimming, with wonderfully clean water. The cottage has a stony beach, great for fossil hunting. What better place to view the brilliant sunrises and sunsets. End the day toasting marshmallows over a beach camp fire, while listening for the loons. Nearby (10 cottages away) is the Christie Beach Conservation Authority with a very shallow sandy beach and playground, perfect for an afternoon outing with the little ones. Our location is easily accessible by a major highway (Hwys 400 and 26) or along numerous back road routes (Airport Road, Hwys 10, 27 and 50) if you want to avoid the weekend or holiday traffic. (Note: Canoe not available)
