We used our Interval time share for a 3 week fall vacation. We certainly weren't disappointed. The weather was in the 20's and the fall colours were spectacular .The staff was very helpful and friendly and went out of there way to set up our accomodations. There is a ski hill 100 feet from our back deck and we overlook... 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 drove up from Syracuse on Sunday night arriving early Monday morning, the jacuzzi Was smooth, we were greeted warmly. We were on our honeymoon, and the room was nice, beds were extremely comfy, and the jacuzzi was so needed after a long 5 hour drive. We did bring food but everything else was there. It was nice to get... 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. Because we were able to drive to the resort, we took lots of kitchen supplies and never had to shop. Check-in was smooth and we... More

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
