Coming Soon: Downtown Collingwood Boutique Hotel – The VanderMarck

I’ve really been struggling to write this blog post for you.  On one hand, it’s important to share  what’s happening around Collingwood but on the other, I am not always 100% excited about everything new.  First a disclosure:  I’m a heritage enthusiast and truly...

The Regent: A Pipe Dream or An Inspired Success?
