Cottage of the Week: $2.6 million for a Georgian Bay chalet sandwiched between the slopes and the water
At 4,600 square feet, the property also comes with a ski-tuning room, heated floors and a private deck backing onto the Niagara Escarpment
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.
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.
This cottage couldn’t be closer to the Georgian Peaks Club, which claims the tallest and steepest slopes in Ontario.
Let’s start in the ski room—a glorious mudroom for any alpine enthusiast.
A quick detour to the basement reveals yet another room devoted to skis—this one for storage and tuning.
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 space is defined by its vaulted wood ceilings and rustic beams.
Here’s the kitchen, with quartz counters, an electric cooktop and heaps of storage.
The floors throughout are heated.
Down the hall is the family room—a cozy chalet meets 1990s suburbia.
This is the main bedroom, with a view of the hills.
The main ensuite bathroom is a modern departure from the rest of the pad, with its black-and-white aesthetic and glass shower.
Here’s one of the secondary bedrooms on the main floor.
Moving upstairs highlights the dramatic second-floor landing.
It leads to another bedroom, this one with a funky nook carved out of the vaulted ceilings.
Four of the five bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, all of them matching.
Now a peek at the back of the home, with its snow-covered deck.
Finally, an aerial view of the cottage, its neighbouring properties and the big blue bay.
