As a resident of The View at Blue Fairway you have convenient access to an active lifestyle and amazing local amenities… without ever getting in your car. Nestled on Cranberry Trail and backing onto Cranberry Golf Course, the community is just steps from the Cranberry Marina and the 34 km Georgian Trail that stretches all the way to Meaford. Also nearby is Cranberry Mews, a unique lifestyle centre featuring a local, organic bakery as well as an array of restaurants, stores and health services. In addition, you are close to Collingwood’s network of more than 70 km of multi-use trails that lead to every major point of interest in town including the beaches of Sunset Point, the Georgian Bay lookouts, the tranquil gardens of the Arboretum, the Museum, the Public Library and historic Downtown Collingwood with its unique shops, fantastic restaurants and cafes. The downtown is also home to Simcoe
There are only a few units left and construction is well underway at The View at Blue Fairway in Collingwood. “There are just five units and one model home available,” says sales representative Jennifer Wootton. “Collingwood is becoming expensive and the demand for these homes has been strong primarily due to their low price point. But people are also impressed by how attractive the homes and the site are and its proximity to Cranberry and Georgian Trails, Cranberry Golf Course, Cranberry Marina and downtown Collingwood.” Prices for these elegant mid-rise condominium suites start at $379,900 with tentative fall of 2021 closing dates. “Many of our buyers are currently living in the GTA with plans to downsize and pocket some extra cash and make this their principal residence - either now or in a few years when they are ready to retire,” adds Wootton. “Initially it’s the price that catches their
Throughout the pandemic, Collingwood’s amazing small business community has found innovative ways to continue providing its wide variety of unique products to customers through online shopping, curb side pick-up, take-out, local delivery, and free shipping. And while it is still time to stay home and limit unnecessary travel, local businesses and tourism operators are currently turning their attention to gearing up for when visitors will be welcomed back to the region. Now in the second stage of the province’s reopening plan, many businesses are offering safe, socially distanced in-store shopping experiences. Restaurant and cafe patios are welcoming patrons with some applying for permission to extend into parking spaces resulting in the Town of Collingwood experimenting with pedestrian-only streets to make room for these expansions. And the Collingwood Downtown Farmers’ Market which had launched weekly pop-up markets at various venues is opening Saturday, June 27 at its original location at the
The current crisis has given us the opportunity to re-evaluate our choices and priorities on many levels. And in terms of Collingwood’s housing market, local realtors are reporting an increase in interest from people in the GTA rethinking where they want to live. “City dwellers have been forced to consider social distancing as a lifestyle,” says sales representative Jennifer Wootton. “For many, concerns over navigating highly populated centres on a daily basis has accelerated their plans to permanently move out of the city or purchase a second recreational home in a less congested area.” Boasting an abundance of outdoor four-season recreational space and miles of trails, lower living costs, fewer residents and convenient access to street side shopping and grocery stores, Collingwood offers a  lifestyle that is much easier to navigate than dense urban areas. Adding to the appeal is the shift in work culture and the fact that remote
Metroland • February 6, 2020 – Ever thought of buying a weekend place but concerned about the cost or how much you’ll be able to use it?

We all know that Collingwood is a wonderful place to be from a lifestyle perspective, but what makes it truly special is the people who call it home. And now during this difficult time, the creativity and compassion of our amazing community continues to shine through. From inspirational hand-painted rocks placed along the Collingwood Trail system with messages like “Kind Words Cost Nothing”, “ln This Together” and “Care For Your Community”; to local business VO2 Sports Co. (www.vo2sportsco.com) donating $20 from each of its Collingwood-themed cycling jerseys sold to the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital; to a new initiative entitled Local Restaurants Helping You (collingwoodrestaurants@gmail.com). The latter was originally created to put together packages to support nurses and other frontline workers but has now expanded its reach to encourage people to nominate someone affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to receive a complimentary care package from a local restaurant. These are
As a resident of Blue Fairway and The View at Blue Fairway one of the most amazing lifestyle amenities you have access to is the natural beauty of an extensive network of trails. And now as more parks and public spaces have closed due to the COVID-19 crisis, being steps away from the Cranberry Trail, the Georgian Trail (www.georgiantrail.ca) and the Collingwood Trails (www.collingwood.ca/culture-recreation-events/trails) is an even greater asset as it offers an easy and convenient way to engage in physical activity while benefitting both your immune system and mental health. With usage on the rise in recent weeks, The Georgian Cycle & Ski Trail Association is encouraging increased etiquette to ensure that the trails remain open. Individuals are asked to stay home if they exhibit any symptoms of illness, maintain a physical distance of at least two metres at all times and warn others as they approach. In addition,
