Dockside Village General Comments:
This intimate enclave on the shores of Georgian Bay features multi-level units with accoutrements such as interlocking brick driveways, ensuites, attached garages with inside entry, central air conditioning, forced air gas furnaces, central vac, and full basements. With the deck and beach area having waterfront access, this mature development on Georgian Bay appeals to many, particularly with it’s proximity to Blue Mountain (6-7 minute drive) or downtown Collingwood (5 minute drive.) Stairs may be an issue for some people.
