Matthew went beyond the call of duty for our closing. I would really recommend Matthew to anyone interested in the Collingwood area he really knows the area well. We also feel that Matthew spent lots of time with us telling us about the area and things to do with family.

About Collingwood, Ontario
Located on the southern shores of Georgian Bay and close to Blue Mountain, a promontory of the Niagara Escarpment, the town is a major recreation area for the southern part of the province. Blue Mountain itself is noted for skiing, and also for its Scenic Caves. The town is also a short distance from Wasaga Beach Provincial Park, a destination that received the title of Biosphere Reserve in 2004.
The Collingwood Heritage Conservation District was formally recognized in the Canadian Register of Historic Places on 2002-12-02. Collingwood was the first municipality in Canada to have a Heritage Conservation District added to the register.
The portion of Simcoe Street that lies within the Collingwood Heritage Conservation District is informally known as Creative Simcoe Street. The neighbourhood is home to several artist’s studios, art galleries and restaurants. It also includes the Collingwood Museum and Collingwood Public Library, the historic Tremont Housebuilding, as well as the Simcoe Street Theatre, which is managed by the Town of Collingwood Department of Parks, Recreation, and Culture.
