We had a perfect unit (downstairs and facing the woods). Everything on the inside was immaculate when we checked in with all furnishings in great shape. The only suggestions are that the patio railings are in need of paint as ours (2110) was peeling and since many units have 4 people occupying them, there should be more than 2 patio... More

We used Interval International to exchange for a studio. The area is beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. The indoor/outdoor pools/hot tubs were great. The staff was helpful. The environs were interesting. The food in Barrie was great. We visited the longest freshwater beach in the world, took a tour of their 30,000 lakes in Georgian Bay, and ate at two excellent... More

We have stayed here often as owners. Staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are large and have fireplaces and large whirlpool bathtubs. You can use just a small unit though with a partial kitchen -it depends on your needs. It is generally very quiet and the trees offer privacy as well as the impression of being in the... More

We had the most fabulous holiday at this resort, we had 2 x 2 bedroom units as there were 8 adults and 4 children, we stayed in the newly refurbished ones and they were gorgeous, very spacious and the kids loved being able to just go next door to see each other.

This is a tricky review to write. This is located in a lovely part of Ontario countryside. People need the jobs this establishment offers. I dislike posting negative feedback. So, some context: I've used this venue as a training base (for trail running) for about three years. It has been OK for that. I just train, eat, sleep. However, increasingly,... More

We have stayed here a few times in the past 10 years, and generally it's a nice little getaway. Overall, our stay was enjoyable. Staff was super friendly, helpful, attentive. Our one-bedroom unit had a full kitchen, was spacious, and clean, though you track in a lot of sand in the winter months. The bathrooms are also super spacious. A... More

This was our first time here, and it won't be the last. The rooms are nice, was in #2006. But they are, sandy. the floor part at least, not the carpet. The convenience store(FOODLAND + LCBO) is under 10mins away. as this is not a hotel, it is required that you bring your own food. Lots of activities for everyone,... More

We have been owners at this beautiful resort since before it was actually built. It is like our "cottage" and we have had wonderful visits in every season.
