Town of the Blue Mountains : incredible variety
Immediately adjacent to Collingwood across the county line, Blue Mountains (Grey County) is Collingwood’s little brother in population, if not in size. Everything about the Town of the Blue Mountains is appealing, even the name. Leisure activities are the name of the game here, with Blue Mountain Resort, Craigleith, Georgian Peaks and Alpine Ski Clubs, as well as a plethora of beach, golfing and cycling opportunities.
Many small communities in one
Blue Mountains is home to just a little over 7,000 souls, compared to Collingwood’s 20,000+, but is about eight times the size, as it incorporates many communities across over 280 square kilometres. A resident-to-dwelling ratio of close to 1:1 indicates a preponderance of vacation properties and second homes.
Formed in 1998, Blue Mountains include the communities of Thornbury, Banks, Camperdown, Castle Glen Estates, Christie Beach, Clarksburg, Craigleith, Duncan, Gibraltar, Heathcote, Kolapore, Little Germany, Loree, Ravenna, Red Wing, Slabtown and Victoria Corners.
Blue Mountains extends from the shoreline of Georgian Bay up onto the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. The flat lands between the Bay and the Blue Mountains, the steep rise of the Escarpment and the rolling hills beyond form a hugely varied terrain as beautiful as it is alluring for those who enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, skiing and cycling as well as the recreational opportunities that numerous private and public golf and ski clubs present.
Choose village or countryside
The two most populated areas, centered around the Village at Blue Mountain Resort and the gorgeous town of Thornbury, offer an impressive mix of dwellings, from stately Victorians to ultra-modern ski chalets, cottages and country estates. Choose your ideal location based on accessibility to quaint boutiques, restaurants, the marina at Thornbury and services of all kinds, or find something a little further afield, whether it’s a cottage on the wild shore of Georgian Bay, or a renovated farm estate with sweeping views of the Bay. Nowhere else in Ontario will you find such variety in real estate.
