While primarily a ski resort, this European-style mountain retreat set between Georgian Bay and the heights of the Niagara Escarpment is a hit with families and business groups year-round, thanks to a host of winter and summer activities. The distinctive red roofs lend the sprawling buildings a Northern European feel; inside, minimalism prevails, particularly in the light-filled Oliver & Bonacini Café Grill, fusing pan-Asian influences with Mediterranean flavors. When not hitting the slopes, guests can chill at Plunge, an aquatic center at the base of Blue Mountain Ski Resort that offers indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs, rope swings, and slides.
In the Area
If you’re keen to experience winter thrills without hitting the slopes, head to the Mill Pond Skating Rink in Blue Mountain village, where the whole family can enjoy an ice-skating adventure. Or for something more adrenaline-filled, take the Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster, which races downhill from the Glades area to the bottom of Grand Central Lodge. Summer visitors can float above it all on the Open Air Gondola, which departs from the Village Events Plaza to the top of the escarpment, or hit Blue Mountain’s private beach on the shores of Georgian Bay, which offers paddleboat and kayak rentals.
How to Get There
This place is very special. I was concerned when reading some reviews but I have to say it was probably my favourite hotel I’ve stayed in. The whole atmosphere of Blue Mountain feels a world away from the norm, almost like staying at a Disney property. I will say the service we received was spotty, with some staff going above and beyond to put a smile on your face, while others wouldn’t acknowledge you at all. But once we checked in to our one bedroom suite (more like apartment), we were blown away with the size, quality of furnishings, and view from the room. It had a excellent kitchen with everything you’d ever need, although paper towels or napkins would have been nice but that’s something to bring from home. It was great to be able to make a quick breakfast in the morning or even having a full dining table to order room service in the evening. The room felt especially spacious due to the 9 foot ceilings and oversized windows facing the beautiful pond and mountains (ask for a village view, you won’t regret it).
We were worried that there wouldn’t be much to do in the summer at Blue Mountain but were pleasantly surprised with the amount of activities to choose from. Two or three nights is perfect, one is probably not enough.
We will absolutely be returning to the Westin!! One of the best hotel experiences we’ve had. We even enjoyed it more than our recent stays at Ritz Carlton properties which was 3x the cost! Thank you Westin for a truly exceptional weekend away!
My hubby and I loved our one night stay at Westin Trillium House Blue Mountain!! We spent the late morning/early afternoon at Scandinave Spa (cooler day made the baths so enjoyable) before heading into the Village.
From the prompt and easy check-in, parking via the underground garage (self park or valet), to arriving in our beautiful one bedroom suite and enjoying the pool/hot tub, it was a wonderful experience!!
- Of course, the Heavenly Bed Experience … ahh wonderful, beautiful sleep
- Steps away from the Village to enjoy Happy Hour at Twist Martini and Funghi Pizza and Beer at Oliver & Bonacini, without leaving the Westin Trillium
- Hiking up Cascade and down Straight Up trails (bring lots of water!) in the morning
- Enjoying the relaxing hot tub and pool after the hike, a quiet and serene setting in June!
- Bite to eat and beer, overlooking the pond at Northwinds Brewery
Shout-out to Staff
- Tom, wow, AMAZING customer service, definitely a great addition to this team!!
- Ashley, so friendly, accommodating + helpful!
- James, the Bartender and team at Oliver & Bonacini
This is a Westin Resort in the SPG family (soon to be fully merged with Marriott). It’s in an excellent location and the customer experience is spot on with our past Westin stays … “Wow!”
We have stayed a couple of times previously at The Grand Georgian … and will definitely make a return trip to Westin Trillium House Blue Mountain!!
Hope you find this helpful if you’re considering a trip to Blue Mountain! Visit early to mid- week prior to the summer months, if you prefer a quieter stay. Any questions, feel free to ask.
From the moment I stepped into the place until I left the service was awesome. Tom the bell man/valet was friendly helpful and kind. Mints on my pillow and turn down service was an extra nice touch that was unexpected.
They didn't laugh at me when I couldn't find the thermostat - which is pretty ridiculous. I was only there for one night but the stay was probably one of the best I have ever had.
I stayed one night to attend a conference. Wish I could have stayed longer. This place is lovely: easy access to the conference centre and all the amenities in the village. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. The staff were lovely.
I saw many guests with dogs, and it's nice to see when a higher end hotel allows this and does it well.
As guests of two stays,The Westin Trillium House is a stunning hotel located in The Blue Mountain Resort near Collingwood, Ontario. The hotel has a cottage elegance with a contemporary flair. We stayed in a Two Bedroom Suite facing the Mill Pond / Village; The room was very clean and large for a family of five. The room had a Kitchen fully stocked with dishes, cutlery, etc. and a pleasant dining table. The Living area included a pull-out sofa a coffee table and a chair. The first bedroom had one king bed with its own bathroom. The second bedroom had two queen beds with its own bathroom too. The view from our balcony was exquisite; the village on the base of the mountain, the Mill Pond, and the pools. Our overall stay was spectacular.
