Discover South Georgian Bay

If you are looking at our site, you are likely considering a trip to the South Georgian Bay area. The area includes the communities of Collingwood, The Blue Mountains, Thornbury, Meaford, Clearview and Wasaga Beach, with attractions for every interest and age during every season of the year. We are continually amazed at the variety of activities, events, festivals and things to do within the Southern Georgian Bay area bordered by these great communities.

As members of the South Georgian Bay Tourism Association, we keep a close eye on what is going on each week and weekend throughout the year. We have brochure racks at the B&B which feature everything from golf to rock climbing, hiking to go-karts, and boat charters to beaching. We’ve got you covered. To check out this amazing local resource online, see the Visit South Georgian Bay website.

Dining Out

We have a large number of terrific restaurants within South Georgian Bay. Collingwood, The Blue Mountains, Thornbury, Meaford and Wasaga continue to amaze us with great restaurants that feature unique, professionally prepared dishes accompanied by local beers, wines and ciders.

We maintain a list of our favourite restaurants, and we are happy to share that list with our guests. We can send the list in advance of your arrival, and when you get here if you wish. Many of these great restaurants have their menus online.

We’re always happy to make reservations for you in advance of your trip or when you arrive. Feel free to ask us about our favourites; as foodies, we dine out regularly and keep tabs on where the best food is being served.

Guest Reviews

  • 5 star ratingWe went to Collingwood use our Christmas Gift Certificate to the Scandinave Spa and decided to make it a romantic weekend away. Our stay at the Craigleith Manor Bed and Breakfast was excellent. We were welcomed wholeheartedly by our hosts Guy and Craig and being the only guests on this lockdown weekend gave use private use of the main floor with the beautiful fire place in a splendidly decorated living room. We had our own table by the window where we were served our gourmet breakfasts. The property backed onto the Georgian Trail which we walked for an hour but could have walked or rode bikes much further. We look forward to returning soon! More

  • 5 star ratingDespite Covid putting so many restrictions on us, we were able to have the quick winter vacation we so badly needed. We went on a Monday- Wednesday so we ended up having the whole place to ourselves which was great. We were greeted by Guy at the front door, who practiced safe distancing and wore a mask the whole stay. His warm and inviting personality made us relax as soon as we got inside. Our room was bright, comfortable and spacious with a gorgeous view of the Georgian trails. The entire house was immaculately clean and so cozy at the same time. The guest kitchen offered an array of coffee and teas, as well as sparkling and still water that is on the house! Each morning we were woken up by the delicious smell of Guy’s cooking. Our breakfast was fresh, healthy and tasty! I would highly recommend Craigleith Manor and want to emphasize how safe we felt despite our stay being during Covid 19. Sanitizers were all throughout the house and minimal contact was made. Definitely a must stay place if you are visiting Collingwood! More

  • 5 star ratingCraigleith Manor delivered everything we were expecting and more. The house looks like it was torn from the pages of a home design magazine. Our room was spotless and beautiful - you know that feeling you get when you open the door and it's better than the photos? My husband and I were there for my milestone birthday and we will definitely be back. Craig was the perfect host. Breakfast was amazing. My husband is still dreaming of the maple smoked bacon. My memories are of the homemade strawberry and raspberry jams and the perfect omelette. Having the Georgian trail access in the back yard was a bonus. Can't wait to visit again in the summertime!

  • 5 star ratingAfter reading such incredible reviews, we knew we had to experience this piece of paradise for ourselves. The property was gorgeous inside and out and the host, Guy, was so warm, welcoming, and not to mention, an amazing chef! Breakfast was different every morning and it was finger-licking delicious even with our vegan diet! Guy was also generous in sharing information about activities and dining in the area and we were more than happy with those we tried. Our room was amazingly decorated with a wonderful mix of country and contemporary decor and the view was breathtakingly relaxing! This experience was the best romantic getaway we've had in 10 years and we are certainly looking forward to making it a part of our marriage tradition! More

  • 5 star ratingIt was so nice to get out of the city and feel safe at the manor. The breakfast was phenomenal with so many delicious options to choose from. Guy & Craig were so hospitable, I would go back in a heartbeat.

  • 5 star ratingBeautiful setting, fresh modern decor and warm hospitality was just what I needed for a relaxing weekend getaway. After a satisfying breakfast, I was able to walk the nearby trail. My time at the nearby Scandinave spa was topped off by Guy’s helpful recommendations for local restaurants. I was well-rested and well-fed.

  • 5 star ratingThis is a great place. House and rooms are beautifully decorated. Host Guy was wonderful. A very cozy country retreat with all the Covid protocols in place. As this was a bday celebration, we had ordered a bottle of prosecco and balloons. When we arrived everything was ready. Mornings start with a gourmet breakfast made to order from a delicious menu. There are a ton of places to visit and dining venues 5-10 minutes away. Overall a really delightful experience that we would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area and wanting to get away from it all.

  • 5 star ratingGetting away during a pandemic has its own challenges, but they made us feel very safe. The place was spotless, sanitizer readily available everywhere, masks worn by everyone, shoes removed at the door, they’ve really thought of everything to make sure you feel safe and comfortable during your stay.

    Breakfast was amazing, they really go all out, and they were able to accommodate our food allergies/sensitivities.

    It’s a little piece of paradise, from access to a walking trail right through their backyard, to the gorgeous Blue Mountains, there’s always something to do and see. We cannot wait to get back!

  • 5 star ratingI stayed there for a weekend with my Fiance. Going in we were a little hesitant because of the rising covid numbers, but once we got there we had immediate relief. The rooms, common area, kitchen, and dining area were all spotless. Guy was fantastic and explained all the safety precautions that they have taken.

    The location was great, and with a hiking trail right in the backyard it was great to go out an enjoy nature and the beautiful fall colours. Not sure if it was all the fresh air and hiking or if Guy is a phenomenal chef but it was some of the best breakfast I have had to date, even catering to both our dietary restrictions.

    I would recommend Craigleith Manor to anyone looking to experience the Collingwood area

  • 5 star ratingMy partner and I stayed at Craigleith Manor for a long weekend getaway to reset and we were not disappointed. The Manor is stunning - the place was spotless, in a great location, with great hosts, delicious breakfast AND with an amazing view of the mountains. Upon arriving, we were welcomed by Guy and given a quick tour of the amenities but he also went the extra step to provide us with an extensive list of restaurant recommendations (all of the ones we tried were fantastic!). We were very impressed with their COVID-19 procedures and it definitely helped us feel safe during our stay. The Georgian Trail also runs just behind the Manor, perfect for a morning or evening walk in nature. I would highly recommend the Craigleith Manor to anyone who is looking to enjoy a relaxing getaway - we are already planning our next trip back! Thank you Guy & Craig!
