My wife and I have visited this place each year for the last 3 years. There is plenty to do and the units are clean and spacious. The biggest complaint in the past has been the very sporadic wifi - that is a thing of the past, it works well everywhere. They are currently installing fiber optic cables which will... More

This is a yearly summer stay for my family. It is spacious as we stay in a two bedroom, actually two units - a one bedroom with an interconnecting door to a studio. Lots of room!

We visited this resort about three years ago. Once again, the rooms were comfortable and adequately supplied with most of the needs for daily activities. Our co-visitor loves to do all her own cooking. We had an adequate supply of dishes, glasses, pots & pans for us to cook in. The rooms were clean and the mid-week cleaning was fine.... More

Very pleasant resort with great service. We had two maintain economic issues and they were resolved in less than 10 minutes. For a relaxing week or weekend, this would be hard to beat. Less than a one hour drive to Georgian bay.

We went back to Carriage Hill after staying there back in 1998 and couldn't believe that it has not changed a bit. The place is still maintained very well and the units are very clean. They have replaced the carpets and furniture, but still kept the 90's theme. The only thing new was they put in a DVD player instead... More

Hard to find a good place to hike...until you bite the bullet and just do it Indoor/outdoor swimming, large rooms and beautiful weather. Food and other amenities are close and casual relaxing is stress free Good resort and staff 200 hundred words is too hard on an iPhone and gets in the way of reviewing

Check in was quick and easy. When we got to our studio there was a family of 4 next door that were extremely loud so we asked to be moved. This was done quickly. So, the rest of our week was great.

This resort is very nice and the staff are very hospitable. The pool was very nice but quite cold. There was a 'pool fouling' cider on Tuesday and everyone was required to leave the pool. A couple of items worth noting. The air conditioners in the Hansom building (rooms 2000-2015 & 2200-2215) are, by admission of the maintenance staff, somewhat... More
