Living Water offers a variety of water sports rentals so you can make the most of your time on the bay. Guests get one FREE hour of use of Stand Up Paddleboards & Kayaks for up to 4 people, so you can glide gracefully along the serene waters – or do your best to – and take in the area’s stunning views. It’s a killer full-body workout, and falling in the water is just part of the fun!

If sitting sounds less intimidating, you can always opt for a kayak instead! Paddle through the bay and start your morning on a reflective note – or hit the water in the afternoon with your friends and see which one of you can paddle the fastest! Either way, how better to soak up some sun and natural beauty?

Jet Skis

Don’t worry golf lovers, we didn’t forget about you! Living Water Resort boasts a stunning golf course that’s perfect for honing the perfect swing. In fact, it’s the only driving range in Collingwood!

Enjoy the lush greens and challenging holes. Even if you don’t beat par, we bet you’ll have an amazing time.

ATV Rentals

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can explore the surrounding rugged terrain on an ATV for an additional fee. Navigate winding trails and discover parts unknown astride your off-road 4-wheeler. Safety first, of course.

On-Site Spa

Nothing beats unwinding at the spa after an action-packed day. Living Water’s full-service spa has the area’s only Aquapath, a 45-minute guided journey between 8 rejuvenating water stations. The spa also offers traditional treatments such as relaxation massages, facials, body and foot treatments.

Pickleball and Tennis

If you need a break from the water, then the resort’s pickleball and tennis courts are the places to be. Challenge your travel partners to a friendly match or epic showdown – just remember to have fun! The courts are well maintained and a great place to work off some extra energy – or work up an appetite!

On-Site Dining

You didn’t think we’d let you go hungry, did you? The on-site Lakeside Seafood & Grill is Collingwood’s only waterfront restaurant. Dine alongside gorgeous Georgian Bay views and enjoy the locally curated menu paired with an impressive wine and cocktail list.

And if you’d rather have panoramic views of the lush golf course and the Blue Mountains, check out Station on the Green– Collingwood’s largest patio!

Explore Nearby Blue Mountain

Of course, we can’t fail to mention Blue Moutain, especially when it’s only a 15-minute drive away! Blue Mountain in Collingwood offers an abundance of outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, an open-air gondola, and an epic mountain coaster! If you’re all out of adrenaline, you can opt for an idyllic stroll through the resort village instead, complete with shopping, eateries, and sun-drenched patios. Dealer’s choice!
