We stayed at Cranberry Waterfront Suites for our last leg of our summer vacation from Sept. 22-29, 2013. We stayed here in June 2013 as well. We have always loved the atmosphere here because we feel at home. They have super friendly staff from the ground up to the executive level.
We checked in Sunday afternoon and it was seamless. We were checked in in less than 10 minutes by the friendly staff at the front desk.
We stayed at a two bedroom suite on the new building. The two bedrooms can accommodate up to 8 people quite comfortably. We were impressed with the quality of the furnitures, beds, appliances. Flat screen tv in the two bedrooms and 1 flat screen in the living room. Everything is brand spanking new. The suite was very clean. The staff were there immediately when we needed something. Very courteous, polite, extremely helpful friendly staff - Jessica, Kim, Meaghan, Natalie to name a few.
They have lots of daily activities at the resort. We joined the hiking trail one morning which was fun. The next day we joined the Zumba class with Lori from VIP Services. It was exhilirating and Lori did an outstanding job making sure that everybody is working out and having a great time.
We also played on their beautiful golf course. Earl was there as always to assist us with our booking and whatever else we needed assistance on.
In the mornings and afternoons, we'd walk on the marina which we find to be a very peaceful place. Just sitting there by the water is so relaxing.
For guests who are coming from outside of Canada, please note that the resort is conveniently located in the central area of Collingwood. It is 5 minutes from Blue Mountain if you are coming here in the winter time for skiing. WalMart, Canadian tire, Cinema, restaurants are just close by... like 10 minutes driving distance. You can also walk if you like to have some exercise. If you are coming in the Fall, it is a perfect time to go on the hiking trail, which we did. We hiked for four hours and we didn't even realize it took us that look because you will be walking in the middle of these beautiful trees with their changing colours, hear the chirping birds, and see other wildlife along the trail. If you are coming in the summer, you can go fishing in front of the marina, they have water sports equipment rentals, too, at a reasonable price. Wasaga Beach is 15 minutes away, the Blue Mountain and Scandinave Spa are 10 minutes away. It is an all season resort.
Please note that they have added this new building on the side of the original building so guests might be inconvenienced as they walk into the building to access the elevators. We can understand the situation and we don't have any issue with that. They are improving the place and we can tell you that this is going to be a premier resort here in Collingwood. It is shaping up very nicely and we can't wait to see the resort once it is completed. Mind you, this is the only resort here in Collingwood that is on the waterfront.
For those travellers looking for their next vacation spot, we hope you find this review useful when booking your next vacation.
