Great location, easy access from Toronto with ski in/out on site, next to horseshoe valley resort. We were lucky to arrive after the first major snow fall, and got to do some cross country skiing. Room is very roomy and comfortable. Close to a few good restaurants, and amenities. Nice choice for a short getaway from the city. Activity coordinators... More

My husband and I are returning customers to Carriage Ridge Resort along with Carriage Hills Resort. We've enjoyed spring, summer, fall and winter at these resorts and everytime without fail we would receive great service with many activities to enjoy all year round. The suites are always clean spacious and overall a relaxing get away. Highly recommended!

Really nice rooms! A lot of space, modern, clean. I wish I had more time to just relax in my room since it was so nice. Full kitchen in the 1 bedroom condo was great for meals. Didn't have a chance to check out the pool/recreation building. Check out the Treetop Trekking zipline park. It's within walking distance!

We used this as a trade with interval. We had a great fall vacation for seeing the fall tree colors. The resort is in a secluded area and provides for a quiet and relaxing retreat. Our one bedroom condo was clean and well furnished. Although I must say the couch was definitely in need of being replaced. The kitchen was... More

First thing we looked at through Interval International was the address... Shanty Bay, Ontario. It wasn't anywhere near Shanty Bay, which was southwest and then east of Barrie. Lovely drive on the lake, but Carriage Ridge was not in Shanty Bay. It was 20+ miles from Barrie and 16 miles from Orillia. The resort is located in the middle of... More

Great spot. Advertised as 5star but I can only see 4star. Inside was just fine. Outside was under repair. Back gallery was peeling paint and black stuff. I was there for a week and saw no Reno workers. Pool and rec area was great. Parking good. 30 minute drive to anything but some very interesting things in the 45minute range.... More

We are timeshare owners at Carriage Hills and have stayed there many times, but this was our first experience at the sister resort, Carriage Ridge. We stayed for three nights in a one bedroom unit.
