Getting CLOSE

... to do with the schools/students/lessons and it has certainly been a source of anxiety. It is really hard to plan and bring supplies when you don't know what you are walking into!

The next two days will certainly be crazy busy and really stressful but hopefully as everything plays out it will start to feel more comfortable!

Happy travels,

... is packed earth, for example, as the locals believed the earth was sacred and couldn't conceive of it being hemmed in and covered over in a place of worship, and the altar area was more open as the locals preferred to be up close to the ceremonies, not removed as in a regular Church.

After that, I headed up the Peninsula to Discover Bay, which was a British Naval Dockyard, in miniature, during the period just before and just ...

Colette and I crammed as much 'talk' time into the morning hours as we could and after lunch we toured the Sculpture Garden. Colette's work is wonderful and what a great setting for it. Check out her website at Toucan Studios.

We left a very soggy park and headed south only to get stalled for half an hour behind an accident where Hwy #69 becomes four lane. The trip was uneventful and continued through more rock cuts and boggy landscape until we reached the tip of Georgian Bay where we headed west on Hwy #26.

We headed for Beaver Valley and the Grey Highlands where a friend from our Almonte days lives. It was great to connect once again - skyping keeps us in touch but there ...

Preparations

... CAA will provide them, but they are much cheaper to get at Costco ($6.99).

A few weeks before departure, British Airways advised us of a seat change. The new seats are fine - the middle two on a 3-2-3 row configuration. The problem is that we are no longer on aa Boeng 787 (Dreamliner). Rather, the transatlantic leg will now be on the older 767. We will find out if it is as noisy as reviews suggest.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Georgian Manor Resort Collingwood

    Never Too Late

    from

    I recently received a telephone call from a very pleasant saleslady who told me that I was one of the lucky 25 winners of the resort package for $64.95. After being assured it was not a timeshare offer, I signed up. Then when I went onto the website and read all of the reviews, I knew I made a horrible mistake. I called the Georgian resort and they told me I couldn't cancel, I could only reschedule. However, I called up VISA and explained to them. I was told that I could still cancel the payment if I haven't stayed at the resort yet, and call it Misrepresentation of the Facts by the Merchant. This is exactly what I plan to do, thanks to the reviews from other people who were mislead.

    Georgian Manor not so BAD

    from

    I have been reading the reviews on the Georgian Manor Resort. I to have attended a sales presention at the Manor. I purchased a 50 yr.

    Thanks to this site for the warning! Re: Sales Pitch

    from

    I also received a call and something didn't sound right. The sales rep said I won but I had to pay $64.95 a night? I could stay free at the resort for 1 or 2 nights, depending on the time of days of the week.

    Sales Pitch

    from

    We recently spent a night at the manor as a result of a phone campaign.

    It turned out to be a sales tactic for time share. We needless to say my husband and I were not impressed. Besides the high pressured one hour sales pitch, the room was freezing when we arrived....the childrens club house smelled like a wet old wool rug, and the indoor pool heater was broken which meant the pool was ice cold. The scum floating on top of the hot tub was unappealing as well. If you get the call, ...a no thank you would be your bet answer.

    Cancelling got nasty

    from

    We "won" a trip to Georgian Manor at the home show. They called and were very pleasant. At $65 a night, I got a bit suspicious & checked this site. When we saw what it was all about, we called to cancel.

    That's when they got nasty. Long story short, we've finally had to call VISA and lodge an official complaint in order to get our money back, and that's cancelling a full month before we were set to arrive.

    Stay away! If they're this bad on the phone when things don't go their way, I can't imagine what happens once you're their captive.

    BE VERY CAREFUL

    from

    We recently stayed at the Georgian Manor as a result of a phone campaign. Although the "salesperson" told us it was not a time share presentation, that is exactly what it turned out to be. Every person who attended had their own Salesperson to show them the property and make the sales pitch. We were subjected to a very high pressure sales presentation, in which the presenter used inflated costs to make the package appear more attractive. We advised them on several occasions we were not prepared to sign that day, and our salesperson was semi hostile because we would not sign on the spot. In addition, he mislead us, by telling us there was a "cooling off" period if we signed and then changed our minds.There is no such law in Ontario!!!!!!!. Buyer beware and make sure you do your homework. If you decide to attend, be aware of their tactics!!!!!!

    I Don't Think It's Worth It

    from

    We stayed for 2 days and two nights as a result of a "phone campaign" advertising a special. Turned out it was a high pressure Timeshare presentation.The place is under construction. Warning to all potential buyers - get anything the salesman tells you in writing and don't sign anything until you have your lawyer read it. Unlike some other provinces and states, Ontario has no law protecting consumers regarding Timeshare purchases, no "10 day cooling off period". In short No Refund! Believe me, the shower which quickly changes from scalding to freezing while you're in it is nothing compared to this shock. Be warned.

    Where's the hot water?

    from

    Spent a couple of nights at this "resort" in fall of 2001. Hot water in showers non existant. Complained to duty manager who explained that there was nothing they could do about it. They always had this problem when several people showered at the same time. Thought this was the 21st century and plumbing technology had gotten past the building with the crescent moon in the back yard. Apparently not in the Blue Mountains.

    Further to"Puzzled and Exhausted"

    from

    Not too long ago,Vacation Inn Resort was our chose for a two day/one night getaway.We enjoyed a very good breakfast following a comfortable night's rest.The amenities and service were very good.I cannot fault anything from arrival to departure.However,,,within some months hence,the sweet voiced young marketers began calling with tempting discounts and deals.Having had former familiar experience with Florida tactics almost mirroring these,I began bombarding them with questions relating to"what is it you're selling?"Low and behold,the same time share sales pitch would take approx.three hours of our precious time if we availled ourselves of this wonderful offer.Even after more calls we never did subject ourselves to their sales pitch.

    First Time Sales Target

    from

    We've just returned from a one night / 2 day stay which has left us puzzled and exhausted.
