We traded a time-share week to stay here, and it was an excellent choice. The 2-bedroom unit was large with lots of open space and excellent furniture. The kitchen had almost everything we needed except salt & pepper, but someone at the front desk was nice enough to find some for us. The bathrooms are a nice size, but I wish there was more space to put my stuff. There are TVs in the living room and master bedroom, good closet space, and really comfy bed. We had to wait for a few turns to do our laundry, but the machines are very efficient and not too expensive. Our ground floor unit had no private patio, but we could step right out onto the large deck that's shared. Our large picture window offered a great view toward the harbour. The beach across the street is small and rocky; water shoes help. A cleaning service was offered to us (and accepted!) for mid-week. It was excellent and free to RCI members. Excellent grocery store and restaurants nearby, so don't plan on cooking all your meals! Be sure to pick up pamphlets and brochures when you check in. There is lots to do in the area, but no tourist material in the unit. We took many drives and enjoyed the architecture, gardens, and, especially, the waterfalls. There is a great brochure that describes all the falls in the general area along with directions and other nearby things to do. We also enjoyed the Tom Thomson gallery in Owen Sound, and a little shopping in Collingwood. There is so much to do in the area, and the weather was so good while we were there, that we never even used the pool, exercise equipment, or sauna. Everyone on staff was very nice and interested in making our stay a great one. Much appreciated!
