Vacation Heartland of Southern Ontario
Welcome to Beaver Valley, a prime vacation spot year round in southern Ontario. But summer brings its own special magic in this wonderful vacation heartland. Whatever you love to do, swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, photography, painting, climbing, or just relaxing at the beach this is the place for you and your family.
The beautiful clear waters of Georgian Bay, Lake Eugenia, the Beaver River, the Boyne River, and the Waterfalls of Grey County are waiting to refresh your spirit. Hike the Bruce Trail and surround yourself with the beauty of nature. Or visit one of the many attractions in the area such as the Scenic Caves, the Suspension Bridge, Grey Roots Museum, Wasaga Beach, or the hills of the Blue Mountains.
If you are inclined to shop, go to the theater, dine, visit art galleries, or browse the antique stores you will find a wealth of opportunity in the towns of Collingwood, Meaford, Thornbury, Markdale, and Flesherton all within minutes of the Beaver Valley.
There are many exciting activities in the area this summer from gymcana rodeo shows in Markdale, to farmer’s markets, Gold Rush Days in Eugenia, Classic Car & Truck Shows, Harbour Nights Concerts, and of course Golf.
Collingwood celebrates its sesquicentennial this summer with art shows and entertainment. The Ford Wayne Gretzky Classic takes place June 26-29 at the Raven Golf Course. The 14th annual Elvis Festival returns July 14-27.
Stay and enjoy the hospitality of the hosts of the Bed and Breakfasts of the Beaver Valley Accommodations group.

They offer stunning country homes overlooking the valley, waterfront cottages and apartments at beautiful Lake Eugenia, stately Victorian village homes, log cabins, or rustic chalets.
