Cottage Profile

Welcome to Blue Mountain Thornbury Escape, and escape you do in this 4 bedroom, 2400 square foot home perched on the Niagara Escarpment where you can experience the stunning panoramic view of the crystal blue waters of Georgian Bay.

As you drive up to the cottage you are welcomed by the beautifully landscaped grounds with flower beds and water pond.

Walking up the stairs to the covered porch and entering the ground level of the cottage, you will find terra cotta floors throughout, a washer and dryer for your convenience, a bedroom perfect for the kids with a set of bunk beds (double bottom/single top) and a table for all their games and activities. From the entrance hall you can walk through the double glass french doors and find yourself in a private living area featuring a leather sofa, wood burning fireplace, TV, and large picture windows that look out to the covered porch. There is also a Queen size bed and a four piece en suite bathroom boasting a walk in shower and Jacuzzi tub.

From here, up a flight of stairs is the main level of the cottage done throughout in wide wooden plank flooring. Here you can prepare all your meals in the large spacious gourmet kitchen equipped with everything the Chef in the family needs including fridge, oven, gas stove top, microwave, and dishwasher, making the after dinner clean up easy. Once the feast has been prepared, you and your family can enjoy dining in the dining area with a table and seating for six or on the deck; both offer you an amazing view of Georgian Bay.

The dining area has a walkout patio door to the large deck looking out to beautiful Georgian Bay. On the deck there is propane BBQ, patio table with seating for six, umbrella, and eight Muskoka chairs, lots of space for everyone. At the back of the home there is a small deck and patio area with outdoor bar.

After dinner venture to the living area and down into the cozy couch or one of the two leather chairs with a glass of wine or a coffee while you put your feet up on the over sized ottoman. Here you can take in a stunning Georgian Bay sunset through the floor to ceiling picture window or catch a movie with the family on the 38” High Definition LCD television. On those cooler evenings curl up with a good book and enjoy the warmth of the gas fireplace.

Two bedrooms are located on the main level of the cottage. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and en suite entrance to the main floor three piece bathroom. The second bedroom has double glass french doors with no curtains, and two single captains beds making it another great room for the kids.

The three piece bathroom on this floor features ceramic flooring and tile throughout, a sink with ample counter space for everyone, and a double walk in shower with glass doors. This bathroom has two entrances, one entrance door off the main hallway with frosted pane glass and then an en suite door to the master bedroom.

During the evenings when the sky is clear and millions of stars are twinkling brightly there’s no better time to have a campfire; the kids get to roast marshmallows, make spider dogs, sing camp songs, and create a memory that will last a life time!

Even though the cottage is not on the water, you can still enjoy a swim in Georgian Bay. Just a short drive away (5km) is Meaford's Bayfield Street beach with it’s sandy shores or there is also Christie Beach Conservation area with a sandy beach, just 6.7 km away.

Looking for something to do? A 5 minute drive into the town of Meaford has something for everyone. Stroll around the harbour and marina, bring your bicycles and ride along the Georgian Trail (the old rail line) to Collingwood, browse the shops, visit the museum/live music/theater (Meaford Hall), or take a break from the kitchen and enjoy some fine dining (if you find McGuinty's, there is a spectacular view of the harbour to enjoy and sometimes there's live music).

The town of Thornbury is less than 10 minutes from the cottage, it has fine dining , shopping, the arts, the Beaver River Dam and the Mill.

Perhaps you prefer to holiday when the ground is blanketed with white fluffy snow. The home is winterized and located 15 minutes to the hills of Blue Mountain resort and the cross-country skiing at the Scenic Caves or Kolapore Uplands which is a famous mountain biking, hiking, and climbing area.
