Weekends away in Collingwood

Only two short hours away. Collingwood is the ideal setting to just get away from it all. Over recent years, I've discovered some of my favourite spots in this charming town. 


Ashanti Coffee. This place has one of the best cups of java. The best part it's all fair trade and comes from the best quality beans. Located on First street. 

Dags and Willow. This boutique is a fine cheese shop focusing on gourmet goods. It's the perfect spot to pick something up for a dinner party.  

Ravenna Country Market. This place is home to some of the best butter tarts you will ever taste. It's the perfect break before heading to visit Eugenia Falls.


Pure Food Bar. Delicious raw food. Great spot for a quick and nutritious breakfast or lunch. 

Tremont Cafe. The building itself is enough reason to go. Situated in a historic space, this restaurant even holds it own book room. 

Things to do 

Loree Forest Loop. A moderate 7km hike that loop from Grey Road 2 to Victoria Corners. You'll witness stunning views of Georgian Bay. 

Ski. The Collingwood area is packed with some of Ontario's best slopes. Including Craigleith, Blue Mountain, Osler etc. Why not make a day outside and then go to the Alporn Horn for some apres ski. 

Pamper yourself. Who doesn't love to be surrounded by trees and enjoying the outdoors while soaking in a big hot pool. Scandinave Spa is a must for anyone who needs a little RnR.

Collingwood Sunsets. In the summer, make sure to pour yourself a glass of wine or go for a walk during the evening. Collingwood is one of the best spots in Ontario to watch the sun come down.
