A visit to Collingwood’s Living Water Resorts is more than a visit to a hotel on the Bay. They’re uniquely different. They’re purposely focused on serving inspiring experiences to their guests, staff, and the local community. They’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, an on-site award-winning spa with Ontario’s only Aquapath, Collingwood’s largest patio – Station on the Green, Collingwood’s only waterfront restaurant – Lakeside Seafood & Grill which received the coveted Traveller Choice Dining Award, spacious indoor pool & 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. Shortly after that visit, Larry acquired the property. Those years of memorable experiences at the property with his family and friends inspired Larry to invite others to come to the resort, stay, and enjoy what was so special to him. 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. At that time, it had less than 20 staff members. Today, Living Water employs more than 500+ people and is Collingwood’s largest employer.
The resort’s developments include the 2007 completion of the present Living Water Resort & Spa building located on Georgian Bay and the 2008 completion of Bear Estate, the only waterfront wedding and banquet venue in the region. In 2018, the former Cranberry Resort was rebranded as Living Water Resort & Spa and the Living Stone Golf Resort. A new Phase IV addition to the Living Water Resort & Spa hotel will be ready for occupancy in Spring, increasing accommodations to over 400 rooms/suites. Phase IV has a private theatre with exclusive family use for guests and more water view suites for viewing spectacular sunrises.
YOUR SEASON, YOUR STAY
The best part of Living Water Resort is that it is in Ontario’s Blue Mountain playground. For those who wish to forge an unbreakable bond with family and nature, this is the spot. Get lost in the trails, hiking, biking, nature watching. Spend a peaceful day having a picnic under the
LIVING WATER CHOOSES FREEDOM
We have learned many things during the past 12 months. We learned simple things.
How to enjoy take-out food from your favourite restaurant, watch sports without fans in stadiums, shop by a curbside pickup. The list goes on.
We learned once again that we do not have absolute control of our future in life. But we do have hope, faith, and positive energy. By striving to do good deeds each day and be kind to each other, we will sleep well and live out 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 choose freedom. The Freedom to explore. The Freedom to dream. The Freedom to contribute.
The Freedom to create positive energy by showing love and caring for others.
