“A gem for toddlers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2010

We really enjoyed this place. We rented and are not members.

The staff were all quite good. Very clean units, the grounds were well tended and the pools were clean.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with our 19 month old son. There were quite a few other toddlers there as well. If you are a parent you'll know that it's sometimes the simplest things that can make for a great vacation. As corny as this might sound, in this case the "small" thing was the fact that this location has a large sand pit complete with oodles of toys for toddlers. Our son just loved it. There were lots of other kids playing, just enough to make it interesting. Hard to really do this justice, but I think it really made our wee fella's trip.

There is a family pool which is great. It may not be a huge pool but it is sufficient to take a dip with your kids and splash around. Again, a big hit with our son.

We're pretty active people, so the 7 minute walk to the village was fine. In fact we liked the separation from the village, it was just enough to keep things serene while the vibe of the village is just a stroll away.

Another interesting tidbit if you have older children - they have outdoor movies in the village square in the evening. We look forward to taking advantage of this as our son gets a bit older. The movies are family oriented and they actually provide muskoka chairs by the 100's for anyone that wants to watch. And it's free!!!

A quick word on the village itself. As a former Vancouverite, the Village there was reminiscent of Whistler. Not suprising as Intrawest built both of them but of course is 1/4 the size. Just the same, it is quite nice, shops, good restaurants, quanit pond in the middle.

The breakfast in the morning is quite nice as well - and is free. We took advantage every day. Lots of healthy items and so nicely presented. This is deifintely not a "few muffins and coffee." I think you'll be impressed given that it's not a restaurant.

This private resort is beautiful and very clean. The decor is beautiful and our King Suite Studio was very spacious. We were on the 2nd floor and our room/bed faced the mountain slopes. The Guest Services were very accomodating and very friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone for a quiet and clean stay. They have a shuttle bus that operates every 15 minutes to the village. There is complimentary breakfast every morning. The outdoor hot tub was great after a full day of skiing. The retro arcade games in the rec room were fun to have around. Would love to go there again.

We spent a week here & had a lovely time, although we only had a studio we were really pleased with the size of it and loved the view overlooking the pond and pools and found it generally quiet & relaxing. The staff were extremely helpful too. We used the hot tub & the pool one very hot day & had a great time. Thought Blue Mountain Resort was great with plenty going on although we only ate there once as we found it a little pricey, we ate in a couple of times and went into Collingwood (can recommend Harveys in the main street, had a lovely meal there). We hired a couple of bikes in Collingwood & went out for about three hours, the cycling was really easy as it is along an old railway track so that was good fun too. Just a special mention to the lady in the Tourist Info office in Collingwood, she was absolutely great and spent loads of time with us recommending things to do & giving us maps & brochures. Certainly worth a visit.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2009

My wife and I were married in August of 2008 and after catering our own wedding we needed a honeymoon with downtime. Much of the Caribbean was out of the question due to hurricanes, so we looked north to Collingwood and selected Club Intrawest for the last full week in August.

LOCATION
Intrawest is at the base of blue, but closer to the main highway. There are closer facilities to the village at blue, but to be honest we appreciated the quietness we found at Intrawest. The larger facilities closer to the village just didn’t seem very relaxing; lots of kids running around screaming and carrying on. You can walk from Intrawest to the village at blue, but it will take you about 10min. There’s plenty of parking for you outside your door and we really didn’t find any mosquitoes at this time of year (only when hiking the mountain).

ROOMS
~Pros: Very clean and new. The bed was a king size and the bedding was very comfortable. A mini kitchen was very helpful if you wanted to cook dinner using the shared BBQ’s and the mini fridge was essential without on-site eating facilities. The bathrooms had fantastic colours and the tub and shower was very large. Overall we were very impressed with the rooms. A good size TV and dvd player was in the room and movies could be borrowed at the front desk at no charge (along with board games). Each room comes with a balcony including two Muskoka chairs and a detachable hammock. We really enjoyed these by having our morning coffee in them.
~Cons: The ceiling & floor walls are thin. We never heard anything from the room next to us, but could always tell when someone was above us. A couple of times we almost went upstairs to speak to the people. Below us was the laundry room. It wasn’t overly loud, but at times you could hear the machines. On an adjacent wall we had the staircase up to the 2nd level (no elevators). It was very easy to hear people trotting up the stairs or struggling with their luggage. The room also had a gas fireplace that was shut down. I recognize it was August, but there were a few cool nights and the fireplace would have been nice for ambiance.

FOOD
~Pros: Although Intrawest doesn’t have on-site restaurants they do have on-site BBQs. We ended up using these almost daily. The boathouse also has a large 2nd level porch overlooking the pond with patio furniture that makes for a great location to eat your dinner. On one evening Intrawest had a free BBQ that they were hosting. A lot of people turned out and the food was rather good. They do this about once a week in the summer.
~Cons: At the base of blue we had dinner one evening at the Firehouse restaurant where they specialize in Pizza. To be honest it was the worst pizza either of us had ever eaten. I’ve had pizza out of a box that’s better. The pricing for the restaurants at the base of blue aren’t cheap. They recognize people are on vacation and I was highly disappointed dropping $50+ for a pizza dinner that tasted horrible. We also wanted to venture out for a fancy dinner and made reservations at a place called The Falls Inn at Walters’s Falls. The food was ok, but for a bill of $120 for the two of us the food should have been much better than ok. After these two dinner situations we decided to make our own meals using the Intrawest facilities such as their BBQs. My wife and I worked in the food industry, so I wouldn’t say we are picky eaters, but we do have a high respect for food and a legitimate expectation on the quality of food for the value of your money.

POOL & ACTIVITES
~Pros: The facilities have two pools and two hot tubs; one of each for adults and one of each for kids. I think this is an excellent idea. All of which are not huge, but proportionate to the facilities. We stuck to the adult pool and hot tub, but found the pool was a little too cool on some days as some days the weather wasn’t hot enough. We frequented the hot tub daily. You often had either of these facilities to yourself. The adult pool at it’s busiest points had 3 or 4 people inside the fence, but often most of those people were just sun bathing. Throughout the week Intrawest does post some activities if you wish to participate. The BBQ I listed above was one of them. There’s also lots to do around blue mountain as well (hiking trails, gondola ride, mountain biking, movie night, village shopping (although the village is much smaller than you’d expect)
~Cons: Occasionally you found parents+kids in the adult hot tub which became a little annoying.

SCANDINAVIAN SPA
We decided to spend a day at the Scandinavian spa which is about a 5 min drive away. To be honest I’ve never been to a spa and had little interest in going, but my wife wanted to give it a try. This place blew me away. For just under $40 each we had the use of their facilities for the entire day. The hot and cold springs, quietness, relaxation rooms and sauna’s were nothing like what I’ve ever scene or heard of before. I’ve recommended this place a number of times to my female co-workers and one of them just did a girl’s weekend here. She too was blown out of the water. Massage’s etc. are on the pricey side, but you don’t have to book those to enjoy this facility. I highly recommend this spa to those visiting the area.

IN CLOSING
Club Intrawest has a very clean and quite facility. It’s not a huge place that’s overrun with people and will help with those looking to relax. Food choices in the area are sub-par, but Intrawest’s tools such as a mini-fridge, microwave, and shared bbq’s allow you to cook some great meals for yourself. The boathouse also has a public access computer for you to use the internet. We enjoyed this perk and most of the time no one was using it. If I were to re-book a place in this area Club Intrawest would be high on my list. I took note of other facilities in the area while there and I didn’t see anything I’d consider over the Intrawest with my next visit.

Spent 2 nights at the Club Intrawest, Blue Mountain. 2 bedroom Harvest. We had 2 adults and 3 teenagers. Condo was very spacious and well laid out.
Very impressed, front hallway included a separate tiled portion with interior door that everyone could take their outerwear and boots off before coming into the condo. Great views.


Front desk staff very helpful..
Things to improve on.
1: Walks and parking lots not maintained very well in winter. Walks were cleared in the morning and should be done more often when it snows. Parking lot not cleared of snow very well.
2: Would suggest year round pool would be a benefit.
3: Ski lockers conveniently located but could not use as their entry was blocked by snow.
4: welcome package provides one package of coffee. Would suggest adding one or two more.

Shuttle service available to the mountain, which is run by the Blue Mountain, not Club Intrawest. Great feature but not reliable. Our teenagers were trying to get back around 9:30 p.m. and waited for over 30 minutes, then walked back from South lifts and never saw a shuttle on their way. A couple of times we hopped on shuttle and had the scenic route around 2 subdivisions and other hotels. (never picked up anyone else) At one point, even though the shuttle was full, the driver still went to parking lots trying to pick up riders.

  • Liked — accomodations and viewes
  • Disliked — location, a little too far from the ski hills

We stayed in the one bedroom suite for two nights back in December of 2008. Check-in/Check-out was a breeze! Our suite, #204 was excellent, very clean, spacious, cozy and comfy. There was a full kitchen with a gas stove so we didn't eat out at all, the grocery stores is approx. 5min drive, Metro one of the grocery stores in town is open 24hrs/day. Continental breakfast, which we took advantage of both mornings was excellent! Breakfast is located in the Lodge, which is absolutely gorgeous, plenty of large comfy chairs and sofas with a very large stone fireplace in the center of the room. The shuttle to Blue Mt. Ski Resort was a bit slow at times, we waited over 10min one time so we decided to walk which proved to be a bad idea, it was a long walk considering carrying our sporting gears and walking with our snowboard boots on in the snow, it took us about 10-15min to walk to the south base of the mountain. We didn't really check out any other amenities of Club Intrawest Resort (Collingwood). Overall, we LOVED this place, it is by far one of the best places to stay in the area!

Not a lot reviews on this resort, but it was an enjoyable stay with a fair bit to do. Check in and out was a breeze, the resort was suppose to be fully booked but we never saw that many people and never had trouble using any of the facilities. We brought CD's and DVD's used the units decks for entertainment, but we also borrowed DVD's from the front desk to use. There are two common use BBQ's which we took advantage of, they are quite large, room enough for multiple users, one night we had 3 families using it. There is breakfast available in the main lodge but for an average brunch cost. We stayed in a studio unit so did not have stove top or oven, so we brought a frying pan and made breakfast on the BBQ. There is a common use computer in the Boat House lounge for checking the hotmail, but it is slow.
The village at Blue Mountain is about 2 blocks or a 5 minute walk. There are a lot of activities available at the village. We did a yoga class 2 mornings on the dock by the pond, we did a hike up blue mountain, and gondola ride down and we took in a movie on an outside screen one night all at no cost. The walk up the mountain was fairly strenuous, it took about an hour with many breaks. There is a grocery store in the village which is fairly competitive or there is an A+P grocery store open 24/7 about a 6 minute drive towards town.
Wasaga Beach is about a 20 minute drive for a busier scene or the resort has it's own private beach about an 8 minute drive from the resort, more for young families. Their private beach has a snack stand and some rentals available.
We had a good meal of wings at Beaver and Bulldog Sports Pub and on the other end of the scale we enjoyed a very nicemeal in the village at Oliver and Bonacini.
We sat through a time share presentation and used the 100$ voucher towards an off road Hummer tour ( through the village), the Hummer tour is highly recommended if you are in for a little off-roading.
