Balmoral Village Review
14 Harbour Street West, Collingwood, Ontario, L9Y 5B4
In the exciting, innovative realm of adult lifestyle communities, Balmoral Village incorporates a whole new level of innovation. While many other adult communities have restricted housing styles (for example, bungalows only), Balmoral offers a unique variety, where you can choose from town houses, mid-rise condominiums, rental apartments, as well as bungalows. This approach is focused on creating a complete, progressive-oriented village, where every stage and need of those who are 55 and older is taken into account. The "age in place" focus is apparent in Balmoral's incorporation of a medical and wellness centre, in the variety of house sizes that lets you smart-size appropriately as time moves onward, and in the availability of enriched care and personal support services that allows residents to request housekeeping and meals.
Aside from the nearby attractions, Balmoral offers a rec centre, with the very latest in fitness equipment. You'll also find not one but two pools – one a shared swimming pool, the other an aquatic therapy pool. There's also a pub, a library, shared lounges and other resources.
Above everything else, Balmoral is spectacularly unique for its location in Collingwood, an ideal Ontario setting for a year round active living. Ski Blue Mountain in the winter, swim Wasaga Beach and other Georgian Bay waters in the summer. There's also hiking on the Georgian and Bruce Trails, and lots to see and do on the Bay. It's the ideal retirement location for Toronto singles and couples looking for the perfect place away, to slow down and enjoy post-55 living.

What people say about this community
Last week, we saw a family of mallard ducks, a doe with her tiny fawn and a huge white egret all by Black Ash Creek... I think Balmoral Village will be the retirement village that will become the example that will be used for many retirement places in the future.
Finding a perfect home, plus all of the many amenities we could want for now and looking ahead, made the decision to move an easy one.
The location and amenities at Balmoral Village are unbeatable.
