Nice rooms, however we opened the pull out couch to find a big mess as it clearly was not vacuumed. Mouthwash sample looked like it was already opened as it was half filled and the room layout makes it difficult to watch tv while in bed.

Our families have been skiing here for 6 years now and we loved it...usually stay 2 or 3 nights… it had become a tradition….but this year the resort changed hands and its all down hill from here. Check-in took over half an hour standing in a congested small room. The person that greeted us tried to sell us on a... More

We used to come to this place at least once a year and every year the service/prices are getting worse and worse. It is a great location and good sized rooms, barely offsets deterioration of the service and every year we consider to stop coming to this resort.

We stayed this weekend for hockey tournament. The checkin policy is ridiculous not allowing your key to get you in the room until 4p.m. therefore creating huge line ups in a very confined space. We then unloaded our vehicle at maybe a minute to 4 in frigid temperatures for our keys to not work. I called the front desk from... More

The condo style is great for families and the resort is located in a very pretty area. We did ski at Horseshoe but would likely try one of the other hills next time as Horseshoe is expensive for what you get. There is only one small grocery store nearby in Craighurst so a trip to Barrie to stock up is... More

We came here primarily to visit Canada and to ski. There are 3 small ski resorts nearby which were great since my kids are beginners. They are all affordable, but we didn't visit the closest one (Horseshoe) because we found great discounts at the other 2 resorts (Snow Valley & Mount St. Louis). I love off season travel because there... More
