This is your schedule at Friday Harbour. Enjoy everything. Do nothing. Come often. Stay longer.
Friday Harbour by Geranium Corporation is quenching a thirst in the marketplace for a close and convenient escape from the everyday – a perfect place to leave the stresses of big city life behind and to reclaim the weekend.
There’ll be no need for weary downtown workers to spend hours on the road to reach this vibrant lakeside getaway. Located on Big Bay Point, Friday Harbour is just an hour’s drive from the Greater Toronto Area, accessible by major highways. One of the biggest advantages of Friday Harbour’s proximity is that it’s also easily accessible by GO Train. A quick call to the resort and the shuttle is on its way to pick you up.
“Time is valuable and friends and family are most important. Friday Harbour offers opportunities to take advantage of maximizing the things that are so special in life.” says Geranium Corporation principal Earl Rumm, who conceived the vision for Friday Harbour from an initial photo in the boat shop of the old Big Bay Point Marina. “Who doesn’t want more time to enjoy life and get away?”
Like nothing of its kind, this magnificent resort – with 600 expansive acres – will have all the key ingredients for year-round relaxation and recreation: an 18-hole championship golf course, tranquil walking/hiking trails through the protected woodlands of The Nature Preserve, a vibrant waterfront pedestrian village inspired by Europe’s great harbour towns, The Friday Harbour Marina, up to a 1,000 slip state-of-the-art marina for residents as well as visitors and an array of residential options to suit all lifestyles.
What makes Friday Harbour one-of-a-kind – aside from its stunning lakefront location, proximity to a large urban area and easy access by car or public transit – is its status as a new breed of resort that combines the best aspects of cottage life with sophisticated style and comprehensive amenities.
Stonefences Golf Club, currently under construction and being built to Audubon International environmental standards, will be a draw for residents and visitors alike, with its features shaped from 1.8 million cubic meters of dirt excavated to enlarge the old Big Bay Point marina. The entire resort will be constructed to stringent environmental standards, protecting endangered species, creating new habitats and helping to improve Lake Simcoe’s water quality.
The Beach and Tennis Club in the Marina Village will appeal to those who favour racquet sports or paddling in the shallow waters along the shore.
Friday Harbour’s one- and two-storey Boardwalk Condominiums and Harbour Flats, along with stunning Marina Residences, will offer the pleasures of cottage country living with a sophisticated urban design. Prices start from the mid-$200s to over $1 million.
