Collingwood is a four-season destination that clings to the edge of striking Georgian Bay, and provides travellers a quaint alternative to the larger city of Barrie and the more tourist-heavy Blue Mountain that surround it. Many people pass through on their journey up the Bruce Peninsula and are charmed by the town's frontier feel and non-stop outdoor recreational offerings. Cranberry Resort rests here in the midst of striking mountain views, just two hours northwest of Toronto and close to Bruce Trail hiking.
Cranberry makes the best of Canada's four distinct seasons, and lives them out proudly with an extensive list of activities that persists even through the cold of winter. Swimming pools and outdoor volleyball and basketball courts accompany warm summers, while cross-country skiing and snowshoeing eagerly await the first snowfall. A heated pool and games room are available indoors, while guided hikes and mountain bike tours meander through the surrounding greenery and a full-service marina offers rentals to prospective boaters.
The distinguished Cranberry Golf Club that hugs the resort grounds was awarded the first ever course certification from the Audubon Society for its visionary environmental practices, and its 18 holes wind through breathtaking wildlife habitats. The spa on site offers its signature Cranberry Sugar Scrub designed to exfoliate and moisturize, as well as a Cranberry Wrap that extracts the revitalizing Vitamin C from the berry for which this resort was named.
Two fireplaces flank the intimate atmosphere at Memories Restaurant where you can dine on seafood fettuccini or butter chicken, while Lounge 62 offers a casual Bistro-style menu featuring cranberry nachos and chicken and beef pot pie. Grab a cocktail to enjoy during happy hour, or listen to the live music offered Friday nights before enjoying the free WiFi and cable TV of your standard room, or the fireplace, amazing views and soothing Jacuzzi of the one-bedroom suites. One-bedroom suites also come with a full kitchen (complete with dishwasher, stove and microwave) and a living room/dining room, as well as a balcony that reaches out for the shores of beautiful Georgian Bay.
