This could be so much better than average. Rented two rooms that were connect by common entry. Rooms are dated and the carpet needs to go, probably 7 years ago! It appeared there was no hot water, ever! We stayed mid week so the price was reasonable. Rooms were clean, pool and hot tub were clean including deck area. Given...

There were so many nice things about this place There were a few things that put a bad taste into our experience there but overall, we did enjoy ourselves and would return. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. The checkin area is not the area where these suites are. You need to check in at Carriage Hills and then...

This got long.... There was a lot of potential here with activities and services and customer service, but it seemed most things fell short. I just didn't have a good time and right from the time we arrived it was not working out for us. Make sure you check exact location ahead of time! My gps took me on a...

Our family spend a relaxing summer week here last summer. The rooms are very spacious, the living area open concept. We love to cook and the kitchen is large and well appointed. We spent a lot of time sunning by the pool and playing shuffle board behind the pool area. There is not a lot of entertainment offered but we...

We have stayed at Carriage Ridge many times, and we keep coming back because of the friendly people, the overall cleanliness of the resort, and the many features it offers. We love the walking trails, the proximity to restaurants ,but mostly love the fireplace, the hot tub, and the well equipped rooms.

This is my 3rd time staying at Carriage Ridge Resort. The staff is extremely friendly, kind and helpful. Our room is spacious and complete. You open the patio doors, put on your skin is and worship down the hill you go at Horseshoe! The pool is clean with lots of chairs to lounge around. The WiFi was great this time....

Lots of space, went with several other families all with young kids. There isn't too much to do around there if you don't like skiing / snowboarding, but still there is plenty of space, a nice kitchen in the suites, and a Costco on the way up in Barrie. Nice place to relax and take it easy and especially good...
