The Blue Mountains are a unique destination in Southwestern Ontario, a known recreational hub that draws visitors from all over.
Living here is an experience unlike any other. Add luxury real estate offerings into the mix and it’s easy to see why this is one special place.
“Blue Mountain has really become the weekend place for so many people. There are a lot of weekend retreats in the area and all the people from Yorkville are coming up to enjoy their homes here. They like the best of everything,” says REALTOR® Kimberlee Diamond.
“It’s also a great place for investors, foreign and local.”
Just what is it that makes this such a wonderful place to live? To start, it’s a town that delivers on all fronts:
Active lifestyle and wellness focus
The area is home to multiple golf courses, marinas and beaches. You can spend hours boating on Georgian Bay or going biking or hiking along one of the region’s many trails. Northwinds Beach is a favourite of many, thanks to its expansive sandy waterfront; you can swim, kayak or do stand-up paddleboarding here. In the winter, you can go skiing and snowboarding at the private Alpine Ski Club or Craigleith Ski Club.
Having Craigleith Provincial Park so close by means there is another scenic locale where you can enjoy biking, skiing, birdwatching and fishing.
“When you get away from the city for the weekend you can relax, breathe and unwind,” says the REALTOR®. “With so many opportunities for active living nearby, it really promotes such a healthy lifestyle.”
That lifestyle focus extends to wellness. The area has no shortage of places to de-stress and recalibrate. Best known, of course, is the amazing Nordic spa and thermal baths at Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain, but there are several other lovely spots as well, including iwa Spa where you can also do yoga.
From fine dining to fast casual, there are many great places to eat throughout The Blue Mountains and neighbouring Collingwood and Thornbury. Enjoy Italian, Greek, Asian and Canadian fare in the local restaurants, cafés and bakeries.
When you’re craving some action, take in the nightlife at one of the area’s popular gathering spots. There’s always a welcoming, convivial atmosphere at the local bars and pubs.
Follow this regional events calendar and never miss a concert, festival or event in and around the Blue Mountains.
