“romantic winter getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2009

This was our second time at the resort and again our expectations were met. The room came with a free upgrade to the 1 brm suite with fireplace and jaccuzzi. The huge jaccuzzi mellowed as down and the fireplace added its touch of romance. The dinner at Settles Ghost was elegant and the serene surrounding more than set the tone for a romantic evening. Needless to say, this is a highly recommended resort and I intend to keep coming back.

The rooms far exceeded my exceptions! Room came with a very well stocked kitchenette. Very clean rooms. Lots of space to relax in.
The sound through the different units travel pretty good. We could hear the parties at our neighbours and kids running around next door. Other than that, the place is top notch.

Our third time at Carriage Ridge Resort, and we booked next visit for March Break.
My daughter and wife love it. Nice place for stay, it’s clean, and so close to ski slopes, cross country ski trails and only 1hour and few minutes from Toronto.

I would recommend checking prices in advance, last time we stayed for under $100 per night.

Through this site, and the great reviews, we allowed ourselves to be booked in for an overnight stay, with a required PRESENTATION. It was free so why not. We can only say one thing. AWESOME. The resort, the staff, the features, and the dreaded presentation, were all..AWESOME. We had no idea that timeshare had come such a long way since my folks first purchased some 20+ yrs ago. We left being educated, made a new friend with our salesperson Lorene, and ending up buying our own. Cant wait to get my parents to change theirs to this. We are skiing all Jan and Feb, staying the night each week, and still going away for a week someplace else. SOLD....SOLD...SOLD...

Loved how close we were to the slopes! A tiny walk with skis to the hill. Rooms were spacious (we rented a 2 bedroom). Ask for a room on the main floor if you have your own ski gear to avoid the stairs. The rooms have their own storage space for skis (no locker room to walk to). Only downfall was that I would've preferred not to see someone else's hand prints on the cupboards and 1 or 2 loose hairs in the shower. Minor details in the grand scheme, but affected my level of comfort. However, we would definately go back! It is by far the best accommodations at Horseshoe (and the skiing is fabulous for families). Previously stayed at The Lodges (dated) and although the Inn is lovely, the rooms are very dated.

We spent 2 nights in the studio with our boys. We tried to get a 1 bedroom but none were available at the time. thinking it would be really small, we were surprised how roomy it was. THey even had dishes and cutlery for home cooking though there was only a microwave which my husband hates. Next time, we'll book early to get the 1 bedroom with the fireplace and full kitchen. It's great to be ablel to travel and not have to eat out and spend a fortune, besides there's no where to eat out anyways on site. Our only complaints were that there was only 1 thin blanket for the pullout couch and it got cold. I know, I slept there after my husband crashed on the king bed with the boys. Also, we didn't like the 10am checkout. It was the end of a long week-end. I'm sure they weren't filling up the next day? After asking for a late checkout, they granted us a 30 minute extension... yeh!
But we packed up and spent 2 hours lounging at the pool and then playing pool upstairs with the kids so we can't complain about that. The pool was fantanstic. We would have liked a movie channel as the DVD's for rent were very outdated.
Skiing was great at Horseshoe. We would definitely return but with our blankets!
