House Is Located On 3 Acres Of Land With A Gorgeous view of the Blue Mountains.
About Barbara Brandon
Hello, my name is Barb and I live in the Waterloo region with my husband Carl. In 1967 my father (Bill) built this home just outside of Collingwood on 3 acres of land because of his love for the country. It is a beautiful property so my husband and I decided to share it with other people who love country life.
Barbara Brandon purchased this House in 1967
Why Barbara Brandon chose Collingwood
Bill's Place is only 3 km. from the town of Collingwood and an equal distance to all the ski slopes including Blue Mountain, Craigleith, Osler Bluff and Georgian Peaks ski areas. The property is also close to Wasaga Beach (The longest fresh water beach in the world) and Craigleith beach. The house is well back from the road making it safe for small children to play. There are many mature trees offering privacy and beauty with no fences to obstruct the view of the mountains.
What makes this House unique
The property is 3 acres in size. 1/3 is groomed and the other 2/3's is bush with Black Ash Creek running through the back of the property. The home has an attached screen room with lots of seating to enjoy a bug free summer evening. The property is very large so there is a fire pit with chairs to enjoy roasting marshmallows with the kids. A variety of outdoor games (volley ball. Bocci ball, badminton, corn toss boards, etc.) are also provided as well as indoor games (board and card games) to play with the kids if you have a rainy day.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great Stay at Bill's Plave
Stayed at Bill's Place for the weekend to celebrate a milestone birthday. Spacious, clean and cozy cottage with helpful labels and stocked with those little things that you tend to forget. Beautifully decorated as well. My friends and I enjoyed our stay at Bill's Place and will definitely return if staying in the area again. Barb was great and checked in on us throughout our stay.
Jessica and her friends were the perfect guests. They left the house very clean and tidy which is always appreciated. Jessica communicated promptly with me and I hope I have the pleasure of hosting her again at Bill’s Place. Definitely a 5 star guest!
A great place for us to getaway with friends and 4 small kids!
Thanks Chelsey! It was a pleasure hosting you and I appreciated how tidy you left the house and property. You are welcome any time to visit Bill’ Place again. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Beautiful spot. We did a yearly girls weekend and thought we would try Collingwood. Well appointed, everything you’d need in the kitchen etc. Owner very kind and helpful.
As comfortable as your own home...
My second visit to Bill's Place was the same as the first, simply amazing! The house is so well looked after, everything that you can think of is provided and its just so clean. The home is comfortable and spacious, the backyard and sun room are great as well. We had a nice relaxing family getaway! Barb is attentive, responds right away and does her best to make your stay great. We will definitely be back to this beautiful place. And the DETAILS at Bill's Place are not to be missed.
A perfect getaway in the Collingwood area
We used Barbara's house as a family gathering place for my neice's wedding. Not only was it close to the venue, but it was clean, well stocked with dishes and toiletries, everything was labeled (even light switches), and the house was tastefully decorated. She also accommodated us with our arrival and departure times. Extra perks included a 6-person hot tub, oodles of board games, a fire pit, a volleyball net and a large lot with wild turkeys, squirrels and blue jays. What more could one ask for?
Fabulous - spacious and spotlessly clean
We had an amazing 8 night stay at Bill's place recently. We arrived somewhat later than expected so Barb left us some essentials meaning we didn't have do dash out to the supermarket first thing for breakfast which made our first night very relaxing. As we were having a prolonged stay Barb also left her basement open to allow us to use the washer and dryer which was amazing - no dirty washing when I got home. In addition to the above, our flight home was late so Barb let us stay on until 2pm which meant we arrived at the airport rested and relaxed.
Bill's place was a real home from home, very comfortable with everything you would want and need from a holiday home - plenty of plates, crockery, glasses, towels, a wonderful BBQ, spacious fridge and freezer. More than enough for 5 people.
Collingwood is a great little town too with plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and supermarkets.
We would certainly consider returning to Bill's place if we ever return to this part of Canada.
Thanks Barb for an amazing holiday.
