Situated 30 minutes from Barrie and only 1 hour from Muskoka on Georgian Bay. Large sandy beach in front. Closest town for amenities is 5 minute drive.

Private cottage that also hosts culinary, botanical, and creative initiatives, as well as wellness getaways! A well appointed surrounding property that offers an array of different activities, and invites guests to enjoy complete tranquility and relaxation throughout their stay! Various vegetable and herb gardens can be found outside the cottage. Blue Green is an inviting sanctuary that focuses on health and wellness, while also providing an ideal atmosphere for inspiring culinary and botanical workshops. Nothing like this in Muskoka, as this is located on the beautiful sandy shores of Georgian Bay!
Cottage/Spa is a respite from the daily hustle and bustle. Spacious seating areas equipped with fireplaces, a full spa, a wellness studio, and a yoga room are only a few of the many luxuries this cottage has to offer its guests! The beautifully decorated interior of this cottage, heightened by the breathtaking views of the surrounding lakefront, lush gardens and sunsets, inspire inner peace, solitude, and appreciation for the natural environment.
The beach house is likely a sought after destination for foodies as it comes fully equipped with an exquisite gourmet kitchen, organic vegetable gardens, and indoor greenhouse located directly off the kitchen! Commercial grade stainless steel Viking appliances help make this kitchen one of the very best there is to offer, and allow for an excellent cooking experience. If desired, the kitchen can be closed off with a rolling door-- should a chef team be working in the kitchen and want to keep the noise to a minimum.
Entry from the driveway is on the spa level-- from here, there is an elevator that transports guests to the main and upper levels of the cottage. Completely wheelchair accessible! The lower level consists of the spa area-- a large bathroom with steam room and sauna, massage therapy room with vibroacoustic therapy table, and a wellness studio (with free weitghts, treadmill, yoga mats, etc.). Spa bathroom also adjoins to a Queen bedroom. Outside the spa is a large wetbar area with fridge and sink for refreshments during spa therapy.
The main level consists of Great Room (living room, dining and kitchen), powder room, an organic greenhouse vegetable garden, and 2 separate screened-in veranda rooms--both off the Great Room. The first screened-in room is used primarily for dining, while the other has a wrap-around deck with plenty of seating areas.
The upper level consists of a stone-walled room with fireplace-- this is a comfortable gathering area that features a flat screen TV, powder room, and a meditation/yoga room. There is a wetbar located adjacent to the meditation area, along with an interior study (with TV), a small office, 1 Queen bedroom and 1 King bedroom, and a shared 5 piece bathroom. Both bedrooms, along with the bathroom, have walk-out access to the wrap around terrace. The terrace is yet another comfortable place to kick back and relax-- here guests will find lounge chairs, an outdoor shower, and of course, gorgeous lakefront views. A BBQ, as well as an outdoor fireplace can be found on a separate terrace located off the TV room.
Pampering and relaxation is the theme at Bluegreen. There are 4 bathrooms with soaker standalone tubs and separate showers. The 3 main floor bedrooms (1 King and 2 Queen bedrooms) all have ensuites with their own soaker tub, as well as a separate shower unit. The upstairs King and Queen bedroom share a bathroom with a soaker tub, glassed-in shower and double sinks.
Summer gatherings are best in either of the veranda rooms, where the screened-in-seating areas allow the breeze and sounds of the lake to fill your senses.
After a long day on the beach, help yourself to a nice outdoor shower before enjoying a delicious meal on either the veranda, or at the "Tea House"-- an outdoor dining area that overlooks the perennial gardens! Enjoy the breathtaking westward sunsets, and later in the evening, sing campfire songs and roast marshmallows over the firepit while listening to the waves lap on the shoreline.
Enjoy this beach house any time of year. There are plenty of winter activities one can partake in, including snowshowing and skidooing, while summer activities include swimming and beach sports/activities. Biking, hiking, and yoga retreats are all activities offered into the fall season. And as always, exquisite food, beautifully prepared by chefs (yours or mine), using organic vegetables grown on the property, is available upon request.
