What Do You Love About Grey County?

Southgate Real Estate

Small towns, friendly people & away from the hustle & bustle of the big cities. Very relaxing, but fun outdoor activities.”

“I love being so close to the water pretty much anywhere I go.  I love the peace and quiet and the nature everywhere I look.  There’s nothing like listening to the waters of Georgian Bay lapping against the shore.  And people here are so friendly.  Most everyone I meet says hello.  When I’m walking the dog everyone waves as they drive by.  It feels like we all look out for each other.”

“Grey county is home to the nicest people I have ever met. Eugenia falls and hoggs falls are breath taking.”

All the trails that one can walk, scenic highways and byways.”

“Grey County is a nice place to live. People are friendly and there is what you need.”

“The people, the local art, the trails, galleries and local shops, not the box stores”

“I love the fact that in just a few minutes drive this area offers the best views, hikes and water acess, it's impossible not to be outside.”

“Grey has arts, culture, sports, nature, growing economy, progressive plans, varied housing, health experts and regional health centre. Am proud to live here.”

“Grey County has the best sunsets, friendly people, and loads of creativity. Everything you need is right here.”
