Social living and nature combined.

A life of natural beauty, relaxation, and friends. A life where you set the pace and are never at a loss for variety or new experiences. A life that feels like you are truly a welcome part of a unique community.

At Lora Bay, we are a unique community where neighbours get to know one another, social activities are abound, and simple relaxation is always an option. We have Friday night meet & greets so you always have a place to connect, share ideas and experiences with neighbours and friends. Enjoy interest groups such as hiking, astronomy, theatre, and aquafit at the Fitness Centre. Join the book club, men’s billiards and poker nights, or learn how to play bridge and other games. Of course, we cannot forget the men’s and ladies’ golf days.


The Area

Lora Bay is located in the town of Thornbury, a beautiful quaint Victorian town right on Georgian Bay. It has exceptional boutique shops and restaurants. It has also become an interior design and artists’ enclave, while the Thornbury Harbour is a hot-spot in the summer for swimming and boating.

A mere 15 minutes to Collingwood, home to Ontario’s finest ski hills and the Village of Blue Mountain, you will see why so many people decide on Lora Bay. It has been said there are three things to look for when buying real estate – location, location, location. Lora Bay offers you a prime location in a four-season playground.

At Lora Bay you can golf on the award winning Tom Lehman/Thomas McBroom-designed 18-hole championship golf course or just enjoy the peace and quiet of an exquisite country afternoon.


Georgian Trail

Lora Bay is bisected by 3.2 kms of the Georgian Trail which acts as a transportation corridor for bikers and walkers making their way into Thornbury. The full Georgian Trail extends all the way from Collingwood to Meaford! Lora Bay also has designated trails, instead of sidewalks, throughout the community. The golf course cart paths become the cross-country ski trails in the winter and are groomed to provide a great path for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing throughout the winter.


Mother Nature

Experience the beautiful sunshine, the sparking shores of Georgian Bay and the wonderful clean air that makes this place so unique and relaxing. Lora Bay is more than 60% green space, so land has been dedicated to deer yards, wildlife corridors, nature preserves, trails, waterfront park and of course the championship 18-hole golf course.

At Lora Bay, the sights, sounds and natural atmosphere make this destination a true retreat for people all across Ontario. Often those who visit do not want to leave, and actually choose to make Lora Bay their place to live.

Whether you are a part-time resident enjoying seasonal activities or a full-time resident living the best life year round, Lora Bay offers you a better quality of life because of its exceptional integration with the natural settings of the escarpment, the shores of Georgian Bay and the natural country side of  Thornbury.
