The Seasons on Little Lake is a year-round, worry-free lifestyle

The Hanson Development Group recently launched the Discovery Collection at The Seasons on Little Lake in Midland. This distinctive, master-planned community has been winning over the hearts and minds of all of those who have chosen to live there.

A sound investment

Located approximately 90 minutes north of the GTA, you can own a home at The Seasons on Little Lake for a fraction of the cost of a typical condo in downtown Toronto, or a home in Barrie. The newest release of townhomes in the Discovery Collection are priced from $399,900.

In the Discovery Collection, Hanson introduces two new unit designs that combine townhouse living with maintenance-free condo ownership. The popularity of communities like The Seasons is increasing, as new home buyers are looking for opportunities to live in neighbourhoods where the core services are taken care of. Here, lawn maintenance in the summer and the clearing of snow in the winter are looked after. Whether you choose to live at The Seasons year-round, or on a seasonal basis, this community offers a lock-and-leave, worry-free lifestyle – allowing you more freedom to focus on doing the things that you’ve always wanted to do.

The homes in this newest collection are as functional as they are attractive. Generous-sized, open-concept designs are filled with natural light, as well as top-notch finishes. They also come with front porches, full-height basements and attached garages. All homes have west-facing yards and patios to take in the beautiful sunsets. And, of course, your four-legged friends are most welcome.

The 1,265-square-foot Fitzgerald model features two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, as well as mudroom access, ample storage and an optional den.

The 1,509-square-foot Harris model includes three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. With his-and-her walk-in closets, as well as double sinks and a walk-in shower in the ensuite bathroom, the main-floor master bedroom provides a sumptuous retreat.

One-of-kind lifestyle

This lakeside development, in the Simcoe County region, is situated on 247 acres. Forests, ponds, trails, wildlife and wide open spaces are just some of the natural attributes at The Seasons. With a dynamic Members’ Club at its heart, this welcoming community offers an array of recreational and social amenities within walking distance – all year long.

At The Seasons on Little Lake, residents have access to many water-based activities, and communal storage is provided for paddle boards, canoes and kayaks. Ski hills are also close by for winter-inspired sports.

Sense of belonging

It’s all about community at The Seasons on Little Lake, as well as implementing conveniences and perks that make living here well worth it. For the next few years, residents will enjoy full membership status at The Midland Golf and Country Club at no extra cost, as a result of an arranged corporate membership. Homeowners will have full access to the 18-hole golf course, in addition to the dining and beverage venues, activities, invitations to social events and cross-country skiing in the winter. This beautiful, semi-private club was established in 1919, and celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. Classic golf architecture features a challenge for every level of golfer – from casual to advanced.

In nearby Midland, residents can choose from a wide selection of shopping and dining options, as well as the opportunity to enjoy a thriving arts community, live theatre, and local festivals and events. In addition, with easy access to major highways, commuting to Barrie or northern GTA destinations is extremely convenient.

Spanning three generations, the Hanson Development Group has become one of the largest developers/builders of high rise and low rise communities in Ontario, and is dedicated to building the best possible product, for the best possible price. Call to arrange a golf cart tour.

New collection of homes by Hanson Development Group at a unique Midland lakeside community

New collection of homes by Hanson Development Group at a unique Midland lakeside community

Excitement is building at The Seasons on Little Lake, Southern Georgian Bay’s most unique lakeside community as the first homes get under construction this spring. The initial homeowners in this beautiful master-planned development are eagerly anticipating their one-of-a-kind lifestyle close to nature.

There’s more big news. Hanson Development Group will be launching a new collection of homes soon at The Seasons, giving buyers yet another option to live in a vibrant community within a pristine setting minutes from charming downtown Midland in dynamic Simcoe County. For far less than the price of a similar condominium in Toronto, you could be part of the beautiful community surrounded by nature. The Seasons is affordable, rich in amenities, and only 90 minutes from the big city.

All homes in the new collection will have garages and basements. To help visualize what living in a home at The Seasons will be like, visit the website at seasonslittlelake.com and take the virtual tours of typical homes in the community. The tours illustrate rooms with an abundance of natural light and generous open-concept designs that are perfect for entertaining. The homes are ideal for permanent or seasonal living and are distinguished by beautiful quality finishes.

For Doug and Karen Hill, the decision to purchase at Seasons was an easy one. “We were looking for a place outside of city where we could slow things down and really connect with nature,” said Karen. “We were also impressed with the broader vision for this community. It seems like a lot of consideration and detail has been placed on ensuring Seasons caters to those seeking a healthy and active lifestyle,” added Doug.

The Seasons offers contemporary condominium towns and semis, designed by a multi-award winning team of international talent. The community is set on approximately 247 acres comprised of woods, ponds, trails and open spaces adjacent to beautiful Little Lake. An extensive trail system connects the five distinctive and innovative parks of the community. The lifestyle at Seasons will be healthy and enjoyable, with a wealth of outdoor activities at residents’ doorsteps, including hiking, biking, paddle-boarding, kayaking, swimming, canoeing and sailing. Homeowners will also enjoy birdwatching and wildlife settings close to home. Residents can also drink in the beauty of the natural surroundings at a more leisurely pace, while they walk, meditate or take in sunrises or sunsets by the lake.

A vibrant 10,000-sq.-ft. Members Club will offer further recreational and social amenities within walking distance of the homes, with indoor and outdoor pools, fitness centre, party room, kitchen, library and meeting room. The club will be a hive of activity, with a busy calendar of events, courses and clubs.

Homebuyers will enjoy another added value: all current purchasers or homeowners and those who purchase prior to Sept. 1, 2019 will be offered a two-year social membership at the nearby Midland Golf and Country Club. The club was founded in 1919 by local businessman James Playfair, designed by Nicol Thompson, then redesigned by Thompson student Doug Carrick in the early 1990s. The result is an 18-hole course that reflects heritage and classic design and provides a challenge for casual and advanced golfers.

The Seasons will be a model of environmentally friendly, sustainable development. Approximately 100 acres of greenspace and parks will be transferred to the Town of Midland and permanently protected. Measures will be taken to preserve and protect the area’s natural landscape and native flora and fauna. Little Lake and the nearby 3,000-acre Wye Marsh nature reserve are environmentally protected for the enjoyment of the Midland community.

Although The Seasons’ setting is peaceful and natural, it’s close to numerous conveniences, including big box stores, unique boutiques, banks and restaurants. The Town of Midland also has a full complement of health and wellness professionals and services, including the new Georgian Bay Hospital.

Destination Ontario – The Heart Of Georgian Bay

Latest News


Destination Ontario – The Heart Of Georgian Bay

By Cece Scott www.cecescott.com

Midland and Penetanguishene

Midland and Penetanguishene in Simcoe County are the gateway to 30,000 Islands. Simcoe Country also includes the townships of Tay (Port McNicoll) and Tiny (Balm Beach), which offer a charm bracelet of historical sites, wildlife centres, provincial parks, live theatre venues, cycling, boating and the shimmering blue waters of Georgian Bay.

Awenda Provincial Park

Ontario’s History

Sainte-Marie among the Hurons was home to the French Jesuit missionaries who ministered to the Huron Wendant people from 1639 to 1648. This site was the first to be settled by Europeans in Ontario, and offers a glimpse into Canadian pioneer life. After a visit to the Interpretative Museum, you can enjoy a meal at Restaurant Sainte-Marie.

Martyrs’ Shrine in Midland, is one of two of Canada’s national shrines to Canadian martyrs, (the other is in Quebec). In its 91st year (2017), the shrine, which welcomes pilgrims of all faiths and cultures, honours eight saints who lived, worked and died in the area.

Discovery Harbour in Penetanguishene is a military and navy outpost established as a base for the British in the War of 1812. Along with the opportunity to board replicas of the H.M.S Tecumseth and the H.M.S. Bee naval ships, there are themed guided tours about the War of 1812, facilitated by authentically costumed staff.

Nature lovers’ havens

The Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre, located on 3,000 acres of wetlands and forest, is a trumpeter swan sanctuary. A hot-spot connection for nature lovers, visitors can take advantage of the observation tower to decide on the best route for their hiking, biking or cross country skiing adventure. In September, the marsh’s Get Outdoors Festival is a great way to celebrate all things indigenous that this nature reserve has to offer.

Awenda Provincial Park is a spectacular destination for outdoor enthusiasts, offering camping, biking, canoeing and swimming. Sunbathers flock to the sandy Georgian Bay shores and beaches during the summer months. Consisting of 63 small islands, Georgian Bay Islands National Park also has camping and cabin rental availability.

With more than 230 kilometres of trails, cyclists of all abilities can enjoy the beautiful paths that run along the bay’s coastine. The routes are jampacked with historical highlights, as well as cycle-friendly support businesses, such as eateries, cosy accommodations and bike shops.

This water corridor is celebrated for its sparkling azure qualities, and is the Gateway to the 30,000 Islands – an outsized boaters’ paradise. There are multiple anchorages for boaters, and a good selection of places to gas-up and stock up on supplies. One of the many jewels in the chain, Beckwith Island is an Ojibwa reserve that allows boaters to spend the day on the beach or tour the dunes. Overnight camping is available with prior permission.

King’s Wharf Theatre

Cultural cravings

You can get your live performance fix at two of the area’s arts venues, King’s Wharf Theatre in Penetanguishene and the Midland Cultural Centre.

King’s Wharf Theatre, an intimate 385-seat venue, is situated at the end of a long, water-kissed boardwalk. This year’s playbill includes the Terry Fox Marathon of Hope musical, the Million Dollar Quartet, and the ever-popular Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat. Intermission at any of these performances can be enjoyed by sipping a cold libation or savouring a sweet treat while taking in the sights of Discovery Harbour’s replica ships, as well as the spendour of Georgian Bay.

The Midland Cultural Centre celebrates the arts with classical, folk, country and bluegrass concerts, in addition to live theatre and literary events by well-known authors.

Stroll the streets

Shopping in the area is an eclectic, small-town experience offering up everything from fashion to furniture. A stroll along Midland’s downtown King Street affords views of the bay as you make your way from store to store. A well-worth-thewalk excursion should include the outdoor gallery of murals (North America’s longest historic outdoor mural), painted along the sides of buildings in the downtown/ waterfront area. Inspired by the murals of Chemanius, B. C., the outdoor gallery of 35 murals depicts the poignant pioneer history of the area.

The Queen of Tarts

Celebrating all things butter tarts, Midland is home to Ontario’s Best Butter Tarts Festival. In 2016, the festival attracted 50,000 visitors and sold more than 127,000 tarts. This year’s festival takes place on June 10th. Arriving early is the key to grabbing a dozen – or maybe three.
