A visit to Collingwood’s Living Water Resorts is more than a visit to a hotel on the Bay.
We’re uniquely different. We’re purposely focused on serving inspiring experiences to their guests, staff, and the local community. We’re 700+ acres of fresh experiences awaiting your arrival.
Living Water Resorts, nestled between the Blue Mountains and Georgian Bay, features a 19-hole championship golf course with Collingwood’s largest patio – Station on the Green, an award-winning on-site spa with Ontario’s only Aquapath™, Collingwood’s only waterfront restaurant – Lakeside Seafood & Grill which received the coveted Traveller Choice Global Dining Award, spacious indoor pool and adult-only outdoor pool, and a full-service marina.
Living Water Resorts was born from a 1992 family trip to Collingwood when Larry Law and his family stumbled upon what was then known as Cranberry Village. It was love at first sight. Shortly after that visit, Larry acquired the property. Larry explains his resort’s mission: “Living Water Resorts is dedicated to serving inspiring experiences to our guests, our staff, and our local community through the resort’s facilities, services, and programs to build positivity.”
In the intervening years, the resort has witnessed many changes. The resort’s developments include the 2007 completion of the present Living Water Resort & Spa and the 2008 completion of Bear Estate, the only waterfront wedding and banquet venue in the Georgian Bay region. A new Phase IV addition to the Living Water Resort & Spa hotel is ready for summer occupancy, increasing accommodations to over 400 rooms/condos.
YOUR SEASON, YOUR STAY
Between a grain of sand on the Georgian Bay and the apex of Blue Mountain lays every activity you and your family could imagine, 365 days a year. The best part of our region is that it is truly Ontario’s playground.
Lose yourself in the tranquility of the trails, hiking, biking, or nature watching. Experience the thrill of the Scenic Caves or take to the sky with a treetop trekking adventure.
Launch from the Living Water Marina and spend a peaceful day enjoying a picnic on a pontoon boat. Or, challenge yourself to stand up paddleboarding or kayaking on Georgian Bay.
LIVING WATER SERVES FREEDOM
We have learned many things during the past 16 months. We learned simple things; how to celebrate New Year’s Eve during a pandemic, enjoy take-out food from our favourite restaurants, watch sports without fans in stadiums, shop using curbside pickup. We learned the difficult lesson that we do not have absolute control of our future. But we do have hope, faith, and positive energy. By striving to do good deeds each day and by being kind to one another, we sleep well and live our lives fully. We’ve also learned that each of us can make a difference by contributing our humble capacities to helping others. At Living Water Resorts, we serve freedom. The freedom to dream. The freedom to explore. The freedom to contribute. The freedom to create positive energy.
PAYING IT FORWARD
At Living Water Resorts, we have a commitment to make Collingwood a model town where people live a meaningful life in harmony and make contributions to our society. For several years the resort has organized the annual Leadercast Live event. The attendees gain valuable insights from highly respected global speakers and a panel of local leaders.
The resort is the annual sponsor of the Civic Prayer Breakfast of South Georgian Bay, promoting positive encouragement and support for local civic leaders harmoniously.
From winter coat drives to weekly food baskets for staff, they strive to lighten the load felt by everyone within our community. Larry Law and the resort are the recipients of numerous awards and recognitions for contributions to the local community, including the Order of Collingwood, Rotarian of the Year, Tourism Canada Hr Service Award, and Travellers Choice Global 10% Awards for Lakeside Seafood and Grill and our Living Shore Spa.
