Big Turn Out for Port Hope!


Last Saturday, the opening of our newest community, Port Hope Golf & Country Club, was a big success! There was a big turn out for the event, and it was great meeting our potential buyers and our neighbours, the current residents of Penryn Village.

At Port Hope Golf & Country Club, we’re offering Green for Life homes and retreat-style living. We want this community to be all about having the time to enjoy your life, to kick back your feet and enjoy the soundtrack of your life.

At our opening last Saturday, we invited Jericho’s Wall from Peterborough to play in front of our sales centre. Visitors were entertained with classic rock tunes, and enjoyed great food, beer and wine catered by This Little Piggy (and ice cream waffle cones!).

It was great to see everything finally come together: Port Hope’s cool sales centre and the beautifully decorated model home. We’ve combined music and technology into the sales process, so visitors can use innovative touch screen monitors to filter and find the home design that best suits their needs. Once potential homebuyers have registered themselves via an iPad, they got to select their favourite song from a playlist to be played throughout the sales centre (how cool is that!?).

We had a great afternoon in Port Hope! We’ve been working very hard on this new community for a while now, and it’s exciting to see it finally moving into the next phase!

I’d like to thank those who came out and supported us, and everyone on my team who’ve worked very hard thus far. If you haven’t had the chance to visit our sales centre, what are you waiting for?

Drop by our sales centre and visit Pat, our sales rep, for our grand opening prices today!

Port Hope Golf & Country Club Opens This Saturday!


A couple of weeks ago, I updated you on our newest community in Port Hope, which is opening this weekend!

It’s always a journey getting a community ready for sale, and it gets more exciting with each community for us at Mason Homes, as we continue to build homes that are Green for Life, better for you and the environment.

Port Hope is located not too far from the City of Toronto, just an hour’s drive.

If you haven’t been to Port Hope before, it’s a friendly small town that promotes an active, vibrant and healthy lifestyle. There are many outdoor activities you can enjoy on your own, or you can join one of these community recreation and leisure activities. There’s so much to do in this charming town, from shopping and visiting art galleries to dining out at one of the many restaurants in town.

Port Hope Golf & Country Club is unique and different from our previous communities, offering retreat-style living for active adults, so you can relax and enjoy life. Port Hope Golf Course is located right by the community, so you can simply step out your front door and tee off. And there are countless other things to do nearby, from visiting nearby parks and conservation areas to exploring the trails and pathways in the area, or of course heading into the vibrant town centre for some adventure.

This Saturday is our grand opening, and we’re hosting a BBQ in Port Hope! Come by our sales centre at 415 Lakeshore Rd. in Port Hope to join us for some food and music. The BBQ will run from noon until 2pm. You’ll also have the chance to visit our brand new decorated model and to meet your new neighbours. See you there! You can RSVP on Facebook here.

Sunday with Your Dad!


Father’s Day is this Sunday! If you’re a dad, like me, you’re probably looking forward to spending the day with your kids.

Now, if you’re looking for gifts or ideas on what you can do with your dad this Father’s Day, I have a few suggestions to help you out.

If buying a gift is a must, you should consider buying something that your dad will actually use, so it’s not being discarded after Father’s Day. Forget another tie or a book he won’t read, and consider gifts made locally and/or organically instead.

If your dad loves technology and gadgets, then shop for electronics that are energy saving or solar powered first. Find some cool gadgets that may interest your dad here.

A DIY gift can be a fun project for you, and dads love homemade gifts, so if you have time, give it a go! Need more gift ideas? Find them here.

Buying a gift can be difficult, especially for your old man. Sometimes, a gift is unnecessary, and all your dad really wants is some quality time with you. Here are some fun activity ideas you can do with your dad this weekend:

  • Visit a local farmers’ market and buy some food to grill on the BBQ with your dad on the Sunday afternoon.
  • Plan an afternoon of outdoor activities, like going for a bike ride, a hike, a game of Frisbee or if you’re like me, some street hockey.
  • Gardening can also be a fun activity, especially if your dad likes to garden. You can help him out with his lawn!

If you still need more ideas, you can check out these adventure getaway deals all over Ontario for Father’s Day weekend.

Whatever you do with your dad on Father’s Day, make it a fun time! Let me know how it goes.

Happy Father’s Day!
