Little Lake Lifestyle in Midland, ON

Imagine living in a quiet town, minutes from the lake, yet still accessible to city life. Slower pace, fresher air, hiking, biking and affordability. Sound impossible? 

Earlier this week, a few bloggers and I took a trip out of the GTA to get a glimpse of a whole new world -- a community that combines homes, natural parkland, green space, boating, fishing and active lifestyle.

Intrigued? Read on.



The Seasons on Little Lake is a new 247-acre, master planned community from Hanson Development coming to the shores of Little Lake, in Midland. Approximately 90 minutes from Toronto and 45 min from Barrie, this new development could very well let you balance work and life, really. Midland is a tiny town rich in history and culture; it's also a very popular spot among tourists and cottagers in the summer months, when its population grows from about 15,000-100,000. You may remembering visiting the area as a child; the famous Ste. Marie among the Hurons is a popular school-trip destination, educating visitors on 17th century Canadian history. 

Minutes away, and right smack in the middle of Midland, is Little Lake. 

Little Lake is a protected 232-acre lake, and the new community will give lake living a whole new definition. 

Over the course of 8-10 years, about 1,200 homes will be built in The Seasons, providing housing for about 3,500 residents. Cottagers, young families, retirees -- if you're looking for an alternative to bustling, urban city life, this may be it. 
In addition to thousands of feet of shoreline and a lakefront boardwalk, all the homes in The Seasons are walkable to the lake via path and trail. (Vehicles also allowed on roadways) And speaking of trails, there will be 13km of trails within the community, some of which is raised to protect the Indiginous lands of the Huron-Wendat people. A 10,000 square foot Members Club unites the community, along with a fitness facility, tennis courts, meeting rooms, party room, swimming pools and future retail area. 

Sound too good to be true? Add snow removal, lawn cutting, garbage pick up and maintenance to that pretty impressive list. 







The renderings and drawings are pretty adorable, and remind me of Pleasantville meets Dirty Dancing. Each home (ranging in size from 724-2000 square feet) has a front porch, a back deck and grassy areas. 9 foot ceilings, deluxe kitchens and gorgeous finishings. 

In other words, you are not roughing it at The Seasons. 











It's pretty appealing, I'm not going to lie. So let's talk money. 

From the low $200,000s to mid-$400,000, these homes are much more affordable than most in the GTA. Phase 1 is currently being sold, with hopes to start construction by the end of 2017. Tenancy is expected for 2018. 

Retiring? Work from home? Telecommute? Crave that quiet, lake life? Or maybe you just want to make an investment for the future.
