A Few Days Away at Blue Mountain Village
This week Teena and I spent a few days in Blue Mountain Village, a resort just 10 minutes away from Collingwood and two hours from downtown Toronto. A view of the village from the top of the mountain is above.
One thing I have to say about the village. This is the second time we've stayed there and both times the service everywhere has been friendly, quick and personable. I never once had a bad experience with any staff. The resort is kept impeccably clean.
We stayed at the Mosiac, which is behind the Northwinds Brew Pub, across the pond in the picture below. I highly recommend it.
The large pond has paddle boats for rental.
Sunset Grill, my favourite breakfast place, not only in the area but anywhere. I had eggs with corned beef hash one day and Crab Cake Benedict yesterday. I love breakfast!
Teena and I took the cable car up to the top of the mountain for a hike.
Off to the left you can see a tiny island. From up there, you can barely see the lighthouse on the left side.
Here we are on top.
Some pictures of our stroll.
The two top towers remain of the mountains original chairlift, built in 1959 and was Ontario's first.
A couple of more views from the top.
We both had an enjoyable time and definitely will be back.
