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
The room was basic and the price was $240 including taxes plus $20.00 to park your own car. We had our dog with us and they gave us a 3rd floor room, despite the fact that the hotel was not bus. The toilet in our room was running but we thought we had fixed it by jiggling the handle. Once we went to bed the toilet continued to run all night. Along with our room backing onto the outside pool which is kept warm year round so the pool pump was very loud. We left at 5am because we couldn't sleep. I called the next day to speak with a Manager only to not hear from him, I had to call back and ask to speak with one.
This type of place is fine but not for $240 in off season.
Actually the whole Blue Mountains village is not what it used to be, very dated and stores that are very touristy with inflated prices.
The only great thing was the restaurant within the hotel, Oliver & Bonacini, great service and food.
The grounds are beautyfull and the rooms are modern. The pool area is great and lively. The staff is very professional. Perfect location right in the centre of the village. The food at the restaurant is very good.
The location can’t be beat! I went there for two nights in October and the fall colours were spectacular. It was such a peaceful weekend and will definitely come back. Around 5pm if you walk on the path by the pond you can hear the most amazing sounds of all the frogs and other pond creatures.
The hot tub was the perfect temperature and the jets really did their job. The pool was very big and very clean. The staff cleaned it every morning. The gym was small but it had everything that you would need. A water cooler, treadmills, elliptical, weights, yoga mats and balls and even a TRX machine.
The room was a great size and I had a view of the pool, pond, and village. It was clean and had a romantic fireplace which was easy to start with the push of a button. It had a little kitchenette with a microwave, mini fridge, sink and dishes. The rain shower head was amazing and I was happy to see that this hotel actually had an exhaust in the bathroom as many don’t.
Check in was simple, quick and staff was friendly and eager to help. The restaurant downstairs had great food so I loved having breakfast there before walking around the village.
