Stayed at Carriage Hills for 2 nights. The 1 bedroom suite was large and well appointed. The bathroom had two vanities and a separate shower. Adjacent to the bedroom was a large whirlpool tub. The bed was king size and comfortable. The staff at this resort are knowledgeable and offer assistance whenever you need it. There is an indoor outdoor pool which is much better than the pool at Carriage Ridge. There is hot tub and a large seating area outside. The upper floor has a work out area. The property is right beside Horseshoe Resort. You can play golf at their two courses in the summer or use the ski hills in the winter. Settlers Ghost golf course is only a mile away as well. Horseshoe has many activities and you can buy a day card and use all of them. Carriage Hills also has planed activities throughout the week for kids and adults.
You are very close to Orillia from here and can walk along the water front park, get groceries, a good lunch or visit the Stephen Leacock property that is very beautiful.
A half hour drive takes you to Wasaga the best beach on all the Great Lakes. A little further down and you will be in Collingwood a quaint little town with nice shops and good places to eat. Blue Mountain is just a bit further. It is full of activities and has a village modeled after the Village in Whistler. Beautiful place to just walk around.
If your from outside Canada or Ontario - the resort has day trips to various areas like Toronto and Niagara.
If you plan well this is a great resort to stay at with many different things around you.
