If you are looking for a peaceful and most relaxing getaway then you have to visit Barney's. Honestly, this resort meets all your needs for a wonderful getaway. The campsites and the cabins are steps away from Puntzi lake, if you fish, canoe, water ski or paddle board the lake is perfect. A 10 min boat ride will take you to an Island full of Pelicans, and what beautiful birds they are. The cabins are cute and fully equipped with everything you need. Rick and Penny can't do enough for you, they ensure that all your needs are met for a wonderful stay. The Bistro food Penny cooks for the community and their resort quests is made from scratch and is simply Delicious. The menu is made up of favorite pub food picks and it is a nice treat for anyone who wants a break from Weenies, and Beans. I'm already looking at booking for our 2021 holiday. Thank-you so very much Rick and Penny for a most relaxing holiday, you have no idea how much we enjoyed and appreciated the time we had at Barney's.

What an awesome time we had at this beautiful resort right on the lake! A wonderful cabin with amenities+++. Pots, pans, microwave, coffee pot, everything we needed. A wonderful fireplace kept us toasty warm. An outdoot firepit was ours for the use as well. So clean and so comfortable! Our hosts, Penny and Rick, were amazing. We can't wait to come back again, glamping or camping, to this slice of paradise. They have cabins, RV hookups, camping, and more.

It was a pleasure seeing you and Ron again, the quad ride was fun. Evening fires with a good glass of wine, lots of laughs is the key to great health, if you ever nee$ to get away from the city, you are always welcome for a peaceful getaway.

Here Ric and his wife Penny have created a refuge away from all the city noises and the usual tourist entertainment stress. The quite lake slows you down immediately. There are all the facilities you need on the campground, they might not be all new, but very clean and well kept. Ric and Penny are very friendly and helpful. We can most certainly recommend the place to all those who are looking for a quiet and peaceful stay on a highly romantic site👍.

Thank you for coming and staying with us, It truly was a pleasure having you stay with us, and hope you return in the future. We are slowly restoring all buildings to their original state, it’s a labour of love. It truly is a place to get away from it all; on shores of Puntzi lake, the stars are amazing and the call of the loons are mesmerizing.

My second stay here for work. Bunkhouse is so comfortable. Leather sofas. Full kitchen. TV. internet. So clean. Also. Amazing food. I came in last minute, I was welcomed with smiles, amazing dinner, and a comfy bed. These folks go the extra mile. I recommend anyone to stay at Barney’s for work or play.

I finally had a chance to visit this resort since the new owners, Rick and Penny Hlady, took over. It's a beautiful spot and well maintained by Rick and Penny. Fishing was good and except for a bit of a wind storm the second evening, the short visit was wonderful. There has been many improvements made the past couple years and speaking with the new owners, there is lots more to come. They are obviously excited about the plans they have to continue to improve and expand. Their energy was refreshing to see. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to get away into some peace and quiet in a beautiful part of the province.
