“A very good time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2004

We spent a very good time there. We were for a week and found the hotel far, but nice, clean, warm and confortable. It's about 1 hour far from Toronto, so, get a car.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2004

This resort is a beautiful, clean, family oriented resort. We just came back and enjoyed some beautiful, unusually warm weather for October.
We really love the indoor outdoor pool, with the outdoor hot tub which is especially nice at night. We also enjoyed spectacular views of Horseshoe Vally during an excursion on a Canadian Hummer Adventure which we arranged to pick us up at Carriage House.
I would like to hear from any owners at Carriage Hills who are interested in renting out their timeshare condominium for a few days in the winter months.

We went up on a 2 day one night pkg, for 65.00 and had a blast!
first off the condos are hugh we brought a total of 7 people and every one had a bed. the spaces are beautiful we had a great time boarding but i do have to say to all of you who dont yet know about ontario's mountains they're really just big hills but great to learn on and fun when your not really paying for it. you can ski right from the resort to the lifts. the in door/outdoor pool was plenty of fun too.
it is a quiet place you so if you're looking for a night out on the town this isn't the place for you
and we didn't feel any real pressure tactics we watched the video (about 20 minutes) and then were told if we weren't interested to enjoy the rest of our day and we did.

we did refer my parents and they ended up buying one and have been very happy with it! the resort is an RCI member so if they feel like changing up therir vacation location they do next year they are going to wales and england. we took some of their time this year and had a fantastic on margarita island, although i must say, the accomadations at carriage hill were more fitting for a family trip by far.
great for a cheap trip with no expectations 'cause you'll be blown away.

I know two couples that bought timeshares from Carriage Hills salespeople and now live to regret it. We accompanied one couple and found the place to be poorly staffed and very boring. There were little in the way of activities, no on sight restauraunts or attractions for families. If you wanted any kind of programming you had to go to the sister resort, Horseshoe Valley, which is a very worn out property that was not kept clean. I would save yourself the headache and go elsewhere. The rooms were lovely, but other than that a boring environment.

Timeshare sales people called me (with no exaggeration) at least 2 times a day, 7 days a week, for 5 weeks. I had already told them I was not interested and yet they persisted until I eventually snapped and threatened to report them to the better business bureau. I would hate to think what they do when you're actually there.... probably stay in the room with you!!
