The place

A five-bedroom, five-plus-one-bathroom lodge nestled right up against the Georgian Peaks private ski resort and overlooking stunning Georgian Bay. The ski-in-ski-out home was designed for families and has plenty of space for hosting. The place also has direct access to a hiking trail within a dense forest. It’s a short walk to the water and a 20-minute drive to downtown Collingwood. 

The history 

Built in 1995, this stone-and-wood house underwent a complete renovation in 2020. The owners enlarged the bedrooms, gave the kitchen a makeover, and upgraded all the plumbing and electrical. The same family has owned the home for decades—but now they’re looking for a new adventure.

Let’s start in the ski room—a glorious mudroom for any alpine enthusiast. 

The coolest mudroom around.

A quick detour to the basement reveals yet another room devoted to skis—this one for storage and tuning. 

There's more ski storage and tuning in the basement.

There’s also a laundry room down here with loads of storage, plus ample space for folding and hanging clothes.

Back on the first floor: the stone fireplace in the open-concept living area serves as the home’s anchor. Note the lights and sound system. 

The fireplace serves as the home's meeting place.

The space is defined by its vaulted wood ceilings and rustic beams.

The beams are a classy touch.

Here’s the kitchen, with quartz counters, an electric cooktop and heaps of storage.

This is the main bedroom, with a view of the hills. 

The master bedroom couldn't be closer to the slopes.

The main ensuite bathroom is a modern departure from the rest of the pad, with its black-and-white aesthetic and glass shower.

Four of the five bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, all of them matching.
