Wonderful unit and amenities! Our almost 3 year old loved the playground, and the arcade was her second favourite thing! The room was great! The large jet tub was so relaxing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was just a really nice place to spend a vacation!

My first venture into this part of Ontario, and an enjoyable one. This resort has much to recommend, including a very good activities department and great hospitality. The bed was possibly the most comfortable I've ever had, and I had a very restful stay. I enjoyed traveling around the area, from Barrie to Penetanguishene and the Georgian Bay, which I... More

This was our first time staying at this resort. We booked it through our timeshare and did not have to pay an exchange fee. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment. There was plenty of room. The one down side about the apartment is that the balcony is small and you couldn't have a meal on it if it was... More

Be very careful when booking into this resort. There are two resorts: Carriage Ridge (no good) and Carriage Hills (somewhat better). You check in at Carriage Hills for both properties. You are lead to believe that guests at Carriage Ridge will be able to use both properties and amentities-NOT! Two separate entities. Carriage Ridge is in need of a major... More

We are owners and have been visiting for over 10 years. The area has a great many things to offer within 30 minutes drive, from skiing and winter sports, to the longest freshwater beach in the world, the many islands of Georgian Bay, Barrie, Orillia, Lake Simcoe, various quaint towns, ecological and historical spots, golf... you name it.

Loved every little thing about this resort! It was my first visit, and we already booked another weekend... We travelled with 2 other families, and had 7 kids in total - the kids had a blast. Our room was at the end of the resort, so there was lots of privacy. Loved the trails near by. Highly recommended

We used timeshare points for a week at this resort. Front desk staff were excellent - although the person at the central pool area could have been more helpful - and the unit was exceptionally clean, well-stocked and luxurious. We simply used the one-bedroomed unit - large and comfortable - as a "base" for exploring the area and it was... More

We visited Carriage Hills on an exchange week through RCI at the end of June. We have visited here many times and continue to come back. We typically visit the week before school lets out as our children finish school earlier. The weekends are busy but the week days are super quiet. Our unit was 2112 in the Landau section... More

Witnessed them kicking people out of the lobby telling them to never come back, casing away people using the BBQ pits because a child urintaed in the bushes.

The hubby and I stayed in a two-bedroom suite using time-share points. Our unit was very large and updated and we were pleasantly surprised as the pictures on their own website made it look a little dark and outdated, which was not the case at all. The unit was fully loaded with utensils with a full kitchen and generous counter... More
