We have stayed at the Carriage Hills/Ridge approx. 10 times and always have a great stay. This time was no different. I only am giving a rating of four though instead of five, since we did have a couple "speed bumps". We had a 10 night stay ( 3 nights through Carriage Ridge booking direct and then 7 nights through... More

1st let me say this stay was through a time share usage . The property itself was nice and the unit was fine. But all of the exteriors were in need of maintenance. Our unit on the back literally was entirely of exposed insulation, no boarding!! WIFI was HORRIBLE! Had to go to the club house if you wanted decent... More

This resort met all of our expectations and exceeded a few. The 2 bedroom is large and fully stocked. We never even had to buy coffee! Since the layout is a studio and a one bedroom, there are two kitchens when you opt for the 2 bed. It would be great for a family with older kids, like me, or... More

The website and all ad materials create the impression that the resorts offer plenty of facilities and activities and that all of them are available to all guests. Once you decide to access them, you realize that there are limitations. A word of warning, Carriage Hill and Carriage Ridge are NOT the same thing and guests are not entitled to... More

We love this resort for the value, location, amenities and price. We have stayed a couple times and every time have left saying that we wished we had time just to spend a day on the resort. There are pools, hot tub, nature walks, games room...etc. Yet we never seem to have the time to explore the resort! The rooms... More

One bedroom had lots of room for a family. Reasonably well equipped kitchen, with barbeques available outside. Only negative: for baseball teams playing in Orillia, you are a good 30 minutes away. I think better options exist closer to town.

The staff was helpful and there is so much to do! Any directions we needed to nearby attractions were given. The pool areas/game rooms are well cared for too! Thanks for making our stay so pleasant! : )

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
