About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Escape the city in this gorgeous architect-designed 4 bedroom cottage. Privately located on 16 acres of forested land in the protected Pretty River Valley. Close to everything, minutes from the Bruce Trail. Perfect setup for both cozy, romantic get-aways as well as family/group fun! The cottage sleeps 8 people (4 adult and 4 children) If additional adults over 4 there is a fee per person.

The Space

In the heart of the Niagara escarpment this beautiful 1970's Cedar frame structure is situated on 16 acres of land that backs on to another 100 acres of crown land. There is nothing in sight but forest as far as you can see in every direction, and there are unobstructed views of the most breathtaking sunsets from the back deck. At the foot of the back yard there is a spring fed pond good for swimming (and weather permitting, skating!) and there are multiple hiking trails and a toboggan hill within steps of the cottage.

Renovated in 2012, the interior is a mix of modern and rustic. Four bedrooms plus a sleeping loft, the house comfortably sleeps eight people. As well, there is a crib available. Floor to ceiling windows and large sliding doors flood the space with light and create the most amazing cross breeze.

A full kitchen stocked with all the usual amenities including an espresso machine, a dishwasher and a gas BBQ on one of the two decks. There are two full bathrooms and a delightful 4 person sauna. Other features include a wood burning fireplace, piano, a pingpong table and a paddleboat in the pond. During winter months there is regular snow maintenance on the private driveway so you can just sit back and relax.

Great secluded spot

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time here in late May 2017. Eclectively decorated house on a beautiful secluded treed lot. Great pond with tons of frogs and fish for the kids to play with (it was a bit too cold/brackish for May swimming). It’s a steeply sloping yard so cottage sports aren’t really an option, but there’s ping pong in the basement and winter sliding must be epic! Too bad the original vintage jukebox was out of order, but we had a fantastic weekend and the crickets at night were wonderfully deafening - just don’t forget your bug spray. There’s toys for the kids and facilities are a bit dated but in good working order. We’ll be back!!

large retro cottage on secluded lot

  • 5 of 5

The property is a large cottage located on a secluded road approximately 15 minutes from Collingwood. It is situated on a large hilled lot with a spring fed pool. We enjoyed the bonfire pit at night, the sauna, and wildlife sightings from the deck or indoors from the living room. The Pretty River leg of the Bruce Trail is a short walk away. There is a new barbeque and we were pleased to find that the hosts had provided a full tank of propane. A large dispenser in the kitchen provided drinking water. The hosts provided two 18-liter water bottles which was sufficient for our 10-night stay. There is a sprawling view of the blue mountains and terrific sunsets. The cottage has a retro feel with a working turntable with many old LPs. There is also a working piano. It has two bedrooms upstairs and two on the main flour. Cell phone coverage was sketchy, although we did find that in the north-east corner of the house, we received a consistent signal. There are two bathrooms -the main flour has a tub and the second one upstairs has an updated shower. The hosts were quick, responsive and helpful. It worked well for two adult couples - plenty of space and privacy. We are frequent visitors to the Collingwood area and hope to return.

Pretty River Valley Gem (moments from delightful Collingwood)

  • 5 of 5

Christie's cottage was the perfect place for our extended family getaway. 7 of us (5 adults, 2 kids under 10) comfortably settled into the vintage-inspired family cottage with loads of room to sleep, make and share meals together, sit back and relax, play a round of badminton, and even go for a splash in the spring-fed pond (my kids are big fans!)

This location allowed us to enjoy some of the best that Ontario has to offer - with scenic views from every vantage point. It's perfectly located with access to the Bruce trail, minutes from boutique shopping in Nottawa, Thornbury and Collingwood, tons of activities for everyone (we couldn't fit them all in!) and literally 20 minutes from Wasaga Beach (the world's largest freshwater beach - it was better than we imagined).

Christie was so quick to respond, prepared the cottage perfectly for us, and left very helpful instructions for everything we needed and more. We're already talking about "next time"!

Cozy Cottage in Collingwood!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this remote cottage in Collingwood. It was clean and very well set up for 2 families with children. My kids especially loved catching frogs by the pond, the paddle boat, the ping pong table and pinball machine. The only thing that would have been nice is if they were able to swim in the pond and if the cell reception was better. The owner was very pleasant to deal with. We had a great stay!
