Instagrammable Spots in South Georgian Bay

We’re all about making memories in South Georgian Bay, and it’s even better when we can document it with an instagram to share with others! We’ve got many hidden gems that will look great on your feed and people will be dying to know where it is. Keep reading for a list of our favourite insta-worthy places.

Spy Cider House & Distillery

Welcome to the dreamiest airstream we have ever laid eyes on! The “Spartan” can fit a maximum of 10 people and has some great “insta-angles” to get the perfect shot.

But that’s not it! The Cider house also has another indoor dining area called the “Nest,” which is equally as aesthetically pleasing as the airstream. This area gives you a bird’s eye view of the indoor production facility and the scenic landscapes outside.

And let’s not forget about their beautiful outdoor patio that is sure to get you in the summertime mood.

The best part is, you can enjoy their in-house gin, vodka, brandy and cider all while getting the perfect instagram.

Penny’s Motel

Penny’s Motel has been transformed from a get in and out pitstop to a must-see destination stay. Owner, John Belknap’s, vision was to keep the 70’s vibe of the motel but completely modernize the inside and add iconic touches that will draw people in. One of them being a huge postcard mural where they encourage their motel-goers to take a picture and tag #pennysmotel.

The outdoor area also has fire pits, bocce ball, and an outdoor kitchen with patio seating. Inside of the rooms is also every instagramers dream, featuring retro touches, modern bar area, and the best part is that every room has its own style.

Get ready to never want to leave 😉

Espresso Post

Who else’s camera roll is filled with pictures of cute coffee shops? Not just me? Okay — phew!

With their iconic yellow to-go lids and yellow front door, there is bound to be a perfect photo op.

It’s also the perfect spot to grab a snack and take a stroll through downtown Collingwood in search of your next insta-worthy spot!

Hoggs Fall

Hogg’s falls are considered one of Grey County’s best-kept secrets. The falls are secluded, camouflaged and yet easily accessible.

In the summer months, bring your swimsuit and head into the waterfall to cool off after your 3.7km hike. With a wide base, there is lots of room for everyone to enjoy and to not photobomb your perfect waterfall shot!

I think it’s safe to say that in this case, we should go chasing waterfalls.
