Blue Mountain Short Term Rental Accommodation Bylaws
Like many municipalities across Ontario, The Town of the Blue Mountains has undertaken a comprehensive review of their bylaws that related to short-term accommodations or "Airbnb's" over the last few years.
While Trillium welcomes this process, as it appears to have the goal of 'levelling the playing field" and ensuring consistent rules for how short-term accommodation operate, these bylaws can be difficult to navigate.
