We used Interval International to exchange for a studio. The area is beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. The indoor/outdoor pools/hot tubs were great. The staff was helpful. The environs were interesting. The food in Barrie was great. We visited the longest freshwater beach in the world, took a tour of their 30,000 lakes in Georgian Bay, and ate at two excellent raw restaurants, one in Barrie and one in Collingswood. The studio was comfortable inside. Sadly, the tiny 6'x6' deck was in need of repair and, interestingly enough, part of the deck was used by the air conditioner unit which blew hot air across the deck. Not that pleasant, we had to turn the A/C off to use the deck. The free wi-fi was sooooooo sloooooow as to be unusable, but hey, no email is not a bad thing.
