This was our first time visiting this resort and we were more than impressed. Our cabin was lovely, with a view of the lake from nearly every window. It came equipped with everything we needed.....including a fabulous screen porch complete with double hammock - perfect for reading/napping in the late afternoon! DJ and Erica were incredibly funny and gracious hosts... More

We just finished our 7th stay here in the last 4 years. As always we were given a warm from Erica and DJ. The cabin was clean and tidy upon our arrival. The weather wasn't the greatest for the weekend but still managed to do some hiking and fishing. On the rainy days you can snuggle in the cosy cabins,... More

Perfect in every way. The cabin was immaculate when we came in, and we would have felt bad if we left it in any other state. The decor was gorgeous, there was plenty of space, and the place was spotless. The weather was absolute garbage over the weekend but it didn't matter because it was just so relaxing being there....

My wife and I have visited Barrier Bay Resort every summer since 2007, and every year it gets better, impossible as it seems. DJ and Erika are simply amazing hosts, and the area is stunningly beautiful and peaceful; it is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Every year the resort gets tougher and tougher to... More

We needed a relaxing getaway without the kids and this provided the perfect location. The owners are helpful and friendly providing special extra touches to make you feel welcome. The setting is picturesque and allows you to really appreciate nature. The cabin was clean and comfortable and well stocked. We were here over a decade ago for our honeymoon and... More

We are thankful that we were allowed to be your hosts for your break! It truly is why we do what we do! Life tends to get crazy busy, and the opportunities to reconnect with each other and with nature are precious commodities. So glad that your honeymoon and 10 year celebration were equally special -- you clearly are doing... More

My husband and I have stayed at Barrier Bay a number of times and this was our first time with the new owners. DJ checked us in and was so friendly! Our cabin was Kingfisher Cove (cabin #1) and we stayed for 5 days from Sunday to Friday. The cabins are always spotlessly clean and the bed comfortable. The kitchen... More

My wife and I couldn't be considered seasoned travellers in the least. Our 2 favourite places (besides our home) are here at Barrier Bay and a lovely place in BC. This was our second time at Barrier. The fact that this is just an hour and a half away from Winnipeg is both amazing and a gift. Another world so... More

We visited in the Winter, but forgot to write a review. We had a wonderful stay in a cozy cabin. It was a miserable weekend, perfect for cuddling and having fires. The king bed was comfy, and the ipod hookup cord was a nice bonus that we weren't expecting. Thanks for a great getaway!
