I rented a 2 bedroom unit here for a week in January. The description says there are 2 pull out couches, they are the worst pull out mattresses EVER!!! Basically just springs covered in fabric so putting the mattress on the floor wouldn't have helped. We called the front desk and they said they have mattress pads because this is... More

We had a great weekend stay at Carriage Ridge Resort. We rented a one bedroom unit that had a fully equipped kitchen a separate bedroom with a king bed and a living area with a queen bed pull out couch. It is a little dated in decor and entertainment and the free WiFi was slow but it was clean and... More

Good location for skiing, good size rooms with kitchen utility. Clean rooms. Needed help on a couple of occasions regarding a date change and extremely slow wireless internet and staff were rude and not very accommodating. To claim they have wireless internet in the rooms is a big exaggeration. Heated pool not warm enough.

The accommodations look great, but as some earlier reviews have stated, the level of service from some members of the reception staff is below sub-par compared to many other places. When one lady (the nice one) is unavoidably busy on the phone, while the other two employees are glued to computer consoles with their heads down for 10 minutes ignoring... More

Used an exchange to book a week here as our "home base" over Christmas, as all our immediate family is located in Barrie (15 minutes to north end of the city). Resort was easy to find, although the checkin facility was a bit difficult to locate in the dark. I wish I had known that the 2 bedroom suites were... More

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!
