We have stayed at both Carriage Hills & Carriage Ridge. Love both places. The accomodations are great..perfect for families. Both pool areas are fantastic. The pool area at Carriage Ridge is more suited to younger families. It has a little kids pool along with a larger pool. The Carriage Hills pool has a really cool indoor outdoor advantage...I had 3...

We have stayed at this resort twice now and both times were great. Room is very clean and stocked with everything you would need for a weeks stay. The staff are very helpful and there when you need them. The rooms are very large with a Jacuzzi tub and vanity off the bedroom and a glass shower in the bathroom.... More

Carriage Hills is a great resort, found in the Blue Mountain Area in Oro; north of Barrie. The great appeal of this resort is the opportunity it provides guests to make themselves at home. You are essentially renting an apartment, not a hotel room; and as such; you find yourself with great space to live in. The units are generally... More

Stayed at Carriage Hills for 2 nights. The 1 bedroom suite was large and well appointed. The bathroom had two vanities and a separate shower. Adjacent to the bedroom was a large whirlpool tub. The bed was king size and comfortable. The staff at this resort are knowledgeable and offer assistance whenever you need it. There is an indoor outdoor... More

Lovely property and a delightful get away. The units are large, well equipped and very clean. However, the wifi was veeeeeeeeerrrrrrry sssssssslllllllllooooooowwwwwww. I was getting up early in the morning hoping that would help with the connection, but can't say that it really made much difference.

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...

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

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
