“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

This was our first time here, and it won't be the last.
The rooms are nice, was in #2006. But they are, sandy. the floor part at least, not the carpet.
The convenience store(FOODLAND + LCBO) is under 10mins away. as this is not a hotel, it is required that you bring your own food.
Lots of activities for everyone, special thanks to Leslie, and Peggy Jo (I am unsure if her name was Peggy Ann r Peggy Jo)The in-and-out pool was nice, I found the outdoor one was way warmer.
LOVED IT!!

Room Tip: The Hansom section is good.

Hello Katherine D,
Thank you for taking the time to share positive comments about your stay with us. We are thrilled to know you enjoyed your stay and time at the pool. We are always looking for ways to control the sand on the entrance floors in the winter months. Thank you for letting us know about associates that provided Count On Me service.
We appreciate the opportunity to welcome you as a guest.
Kind regards,
Tara

We have been owners at this beautiful resort since before it was actually built. It is like our "cottage" and we have had wonderful visits in every season. Whether we are doing day trips to Wasaga Beach, visiting the Adventure Park or Tree Top Trekking in the summer, or skiing and tubing in the winter, we are never bored! The rooms are big and beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly want -- a Jacuzzi in the master bathroom and a fireplace for the cold nights. If you need something "extra", like a blender or muffin tin, chances are they have it for borrow. I love the indoor-outdoor pool. Even in the winter, it's nice to swim outside. They had tons of planned activities -- many free or for a nominal charge. Our favourite special place to visit, for sure.

Stayed here on a timeshare exchange so really can't comment on value. This is our second time, the first being in the summer of 2003. Had 2 bedroom which is a studio and a 1 bedroom combined. Very happy with unit. Offered privacy for all. Also had full kitchen facilities as part of the 1 bedroom unit, the studio has a mini fridge only. Each unit had a king size bed and a pull out sofa. There is laundry facilities in the foyer of each studio/1 bedroom unit (ie shared between the 2 units) which came in handy.

Was March break so pool was a bit crazy but the last hour (9-10) each day reserved for adults only. Used the gym 3 times during the week, small but never more than 5 in there including wife and I. Was surprised they did not offer ski discounts at Horseshoe Valley resort but was very please to have discovered Mount St Louis as a result as this is where ski discounts were available.

My only complaint would be the lack of dining options near the resort. Options were plentiful if you took the 20 minute trek to Barrie. The kitchen facilities made up for that. Would highly recommend for a family ski trip.

We skied and tubed at Horseshoe Valley. It was a blast. Carriage Hills resort was awesome. Our 2 bedroom suite was absolutely beautiful. It had been renovated and was brand new from the furniture, rug to the appliances. We had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the indoor/outdoor pool in February. The hot tub and sauna were awesome too. Will totally go back.

I just came back on Monday from a wonderul weekend away with my girlfriends. There were seven of us, we had accomondations with two adjoining rooms. None of us had ever been here, but we will all definately return. In fact we enjoyed ourselves so much, we plan to make it a yearly get-together. From the moment we checked in, the hospitality was revealed, the staff go out of their way to welcome you and show all the amenities and activities available for the stay here. Our rooms were far above our expectations, cleanliness, comfort, and attractive decor. The beds were really comfortable, even the fold out couches were great. The kitchen, laundry, and washrooms were sparkling fresh, the jacuzzi bath extraordinary, the fireplace comfortable and heartwarming. Everything we needed was available from utensils to dishsoap, bathing needs, bedding needs, closet space, gracious living space etc. etc. The staff was extraordinary, going above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and satisfied. When we visited the pool building we were excited and amazed at the cleanliness, the awesome inside/outside pool. The hot tubs were equally amazing, and the setting was phenominal. Our stay included a lesson with snowshoes which was an amazing experience. Then we spent $15 to have a bus take us to a farm where we gathered for a two-horse drawn wagon ride into open fields and a wonderful forest. The sound of the sleigh bells were refreshing and relaxing. Afterward we were offered a nice cup of hot chocolate, then back onto bus and home again. Our stay here was a wonderful, warm experience and I would highly recommend this fabulous resort to anyone and everyone!

Room Tip: This was our first stay here, I believe one room is as desirable as the other. We did not see the re...

We have been to Carriage Hills on many occasions over the past several years. We keep coming back because we LOVE IT there! The amenities are lovely and well kept, but the staff is extraordinatry! We have not met one person who has not gone above and beyond in their service. The staff at Carriage Hills is a team and it clearly shows because they make the time spent there - fun. Our experience has been so good that we have told several other families about Carriage Hills. They too have gone and are absolutely raving about the facilities and staff. Our kids love the pool and recreation facilities at Carriage Hills. We have a pool at home and we like everything around the pool and hot tub to be well maintaiined. I find that staff are if anything extreme on their maintenance and in their attention to safety. This gives us a good feeling and we just enjoy every minute. I would like to recommend this resort as one you do not want to miss out on. We have travelled to some really nice resorts but this really is a gem and in our long term experience is one of the BEST!

Our families have been skiing here for 6 years now and we loved it...usually stay 2 or 3 nights… it had become a tradition….but this year the resort changed hands and its all down hill from here. Check-in took over half an hour standing in a congested small room. The person that greeted us tried to sell us on a time share presentation. Arrived at about 6pm so we wanted to head out for dinner but the safe in the room was locked… I called the front desk...they put me on hold for about 10 minutes...I called back and the person did the same thing...only waited 5 min this time da! had coffee, but no filters in the room so had to call again for coffee filters in the morning…could not wait to get on the hill, so I guess no coffee…next day no coffee …we asked for a late check out because you have to check out by 10 am, but sorry we were told, none available…the place did not seem that busy…our kids always swim before we head out…but this time we were told we could not even use the pool after 10 am…
We would normally let them swim for an hour and head out from the pool area…but sorry…new management we were told.
Sometimes new management can improve things but not here…there goes a nice tradition...anybody know of some well run resort in the area? Preferably not a time share.

Room Tip: walk out is the best thing this place offers otherwise find another place

Dear Rob K,
We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry to hear you experienced some difficulties regarding your check-in and check-out. As you pointed out our lobby space is small and we are working on solutions to reduce the impact this has on guests during a busy weekend. We apologize for not providing coffee filters and we will certainly look into why this amenity and service request was not fulfilled.
Again, thank you for your feedback.
