First impression wasn't great...but we did have a good time The beach is super small, almost an afterthought. I agree with others- the lodge is very musty. My kids loved the playground and the dirt roads are great for kids to bike on. We brought our atv's and the ride to get onto the trails is a short ride on... More

We spent a long weekend at Barry’s Bay Cottages. Everything exceeded our expectations: The cottage, the grounds, the activities, etc. The 3-bedroom cottage was spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed. The grocery store was a short drive away which was very convenient when we ran out of milk and treats for the kids. What I loved about our experience... More

We just left with our kids last weekend and really were happy with our cottage. I see one review on here that I didn't see before we booked but they must not have the right place. Our cottage was clean and cozy (and they tell you the size of the place, there's no hidden stuff) We had campfires, paddled in... More

We stayed here for a weekend in May and really weren't expecting much, as we know the area and have rented cottages on Carson and Trout Lake before. We were actually pleasantly surprised as we thought we would be "roughing it" more! We were in cottage #7, the Cotton Tail because we needed a pet friendly cottage for the dog.... More

we stayed 1 week this year of 2013. While the owner was helpful and friendly....our cottage must of been a reno in the works! Sub-floors, filthy couches, lightbulbs in rooms left uncovered, doorknobs coming off doors(daughter was locked in the bathroom) mattresses that should of never been put on beds!! An absolute disaster....paid over 900$!! Owner offered a 50% off... More

Stayed 3 nights in Sept. 2013 - very pleased when we arrived at our little cottage (#5 Gray Wolf). BTW - Hats off to owner for such a well laid out website. Everything was well explained, and pictures showed all you need to know really. But arriving and finding everything exactly as promised really made us happy. We were only... More

We recently stayed at Barry' Bay Cottage Resort for a week in cottage number 12 (3 bedroom). We were very pleased with it as it was well equipped and comfortable for the 8 of us. Remembering it is a cottage not a condo rental in Florida. Cable TV, DVD, linens, full kitchen etc. It was not most updated, but appliances... More

I had read some of the reviews prior to going so I was on guard but I have to say that I have absolutely no complaint about my time there...as a matter of fact it exceeded my expectation. Being the time of year that I went perhaps the highway is not that busy, but I live in Toronto so the... More

We stayed here over a long weekend in cottage #8. We had no major complaints about the cottage - it was clean and conveniently close to a well-equipped town and to Algonquin Park. The website makes a point of mentioning that the cottages are "renovated", but we didn't feel like ours was redone recently. The kitchen looked like it contained... More
