About Living Water Resort

Living Water Resort isn’t just a hotel, it’s two great resorts on one amazing property nestled on 700+ acres of land between Blue Mountain & Georgian Bay. 

The four-season vacation resort is a natural playground offering any type of getaway you’re looking for. Do you want to explore the area and go on an adventure? Or spend some much-needed time relaxing? There’s a championship-length golf course, full-service spa, it’s nearby the cool waters of Georgian Bay, and offers waterfront dining.

What to do near your stay

South Georgian Bay has a number of world renowned and under-the-radar destinations that make perfect getaways in any season. Collingwood is one of the more populated towns and acts as a gateway to the famous Blue Mountains ski resort and village.

Being in between some of the top ski/snowboard hills in the province and an amazing body of water (Georgian Bay) in Ontario makes for amazing opportunities to accommodate tourists and locals for a wide array of activities, no matter what you’re into – they have it!

Cruises of The Bay with Collingwood Charters

Collingwood Charters is a local family run business that offers a variety of boat tours and seasonal events on the beautiful Georgian Bay. Climb aboard their vessel, “Huronic”, a 65′ steel hull boat that can hold up to 70 passengers!

The Sunset Cruise is an hour and a half boat tour that brings you around to watch the sun set beyond the Nottawasaga Lighthouse from the open waters of Georgian Bay. After the beautiful spectacle, the vessel cruises back to the harbour with the light of the glowing colours reflecting on the water as it fades into the night. How romantic!
