Blue Mountain has been growing by leaps and bounds over the years. We are seeing a wide variety of people going there to enjoy their sport. Many of them coming out for the first time to try it out. Couples and groups are doing weekend trips and week long trips, so they need a cottage, motel or hotel to stay at. At our cottages, we get groups over in Wasaga all the time during our off season.

Positives of Renting in Wasaga Beach

More Economical

A Wasaga Beach hotel, motel or cottage are much less expensive to rent. You get more bang for your buck in Wasaga if you do not mind the drive. More amenities or space for less money.

Many Restaurant Options

When it is time to chow down after a big day at the slopes, Wasaga has a good variety of food options. To name a few, we have Greek, Thai, Indian, British, Pizza, bar and grill style, fast food, and Mexican. There is even some night life on game nights.

Good Options for Accommodating Large Groups

Wasaga Beach has many options for large group bookings. For example, if the group is really large, some units can sleep up to 14 people. The same property often still has more large units available.

Calmer and Slower Paced

In the winter Wasaga slows right down. As a result, traffic is better and the town is quieter overall. Quite likely a really peaceful stay.
