We had previously visited earlier in the year with our kids, and rented a 3bdrm cottage with hot tub, creekside. For our anniversary we knew we had to return so we booked a 2bdrm lakefront cottage with hot tub - and we're not disappointed. Although it says you see nobody when you're there, we did see the gentleman who does...

The location of the cottages and the grounds are beautiful. The cottage itself was ok for a cottage. The problem is that the beds are extremely uncomfortable and hurt your back. Very old mattresses and very hard. The bedspreads do not get washed. We had to remove ours from the beds due to them being very dirty and could not...

Stayed a week with my partner at Cotton Tail. We went over Christmas holidays and it was snowy and beautiful. This isn't a high end resort, but it had everything we needed and then some. The view is breathtaking, the service was helpful and friendly. The only two things that could have been better were the beds and the wifi....

It's a nice location but sadly the cottage was very dirty and in need of repairs and upgrades. Carson Lake is lovely and clean and the kids enjoyed the water trampoline. When it rained we went to their "moose lounge" which was also quite dirty and dated. We won't be returning though. A little (or a lot) of TLC would...

Stayed at the resort this spring and was quite pleased with how clean and well kept the place looks. The private feel of the cottages and the fact the lake is right at your doorstep really add to the appeal. The hot tub was an added bonus with lots of space to relax in the cottage. I would recommend Barry's...

Loved it here. The cabin was clean, comfortable as spacious. ..yet still cozy and intimate. The hot Tub on the deck was an added bonus, facing the lake with a spectacular view . The lot was private and felt very much like bring in a secluded cabin nestled in the woods. The price was very reasonable and I will definitely...

Our family rented a cottage here (White Tail) and this place was not what we expected. To start, when we arrived I was stung by a wasp, there was a nest under our door and and above it (luckily it was not 1 of my 4 kids aged 8,6,4,2). When I found the maintenance guy he said "don't worry, I...

Hi Bruce, we appreciate your comments and have talked to our property manager about the incident. We have also since replaced the cleaning crew as the previous contractor was becoming too busy to provide the level of service we expect. We try to keep the cottages clean and modern with a little rustic flair.

We stayed at Barry's Bay during our family vacation! The cabin was a nice little cabin; although, we were a little cramped with 2 adults and 2 children. The views of the lake and the scenery were beautiful! We had fun kayaking and canoeing on Carson Lake, but the kids were disappointed that there were no paddle boats seen on...

Thank you Nina. We are glad you enjoyed the view and the canoes and kayaks. The water trampoline is only kept in the lake during the summer season (unless being repaired) and the paddleboats do get beat up regularly. We do our best to keep these things in working order. As for turn down service, that is not really provided...

Our first time at this property and our last. This is a lovely Lake and a lovely property. The Lake is clean and very nice, free canoes and Kayaks a perk for sure. Where this weekend rental fell short was maintenance. When we arrived we were dissapointed in the bathroom, yellow peeled caulking around the toilet and a black (dirty/rusted)...

Thank you Shawn. We are glad you liked the lake and property, but sad to hear your comments on maintenance and service. We try to keep the cottages as clean and maintained as possible. We had a couple comments in September on the cleaning and have since replaced the cleaning crew since they were becoming less reliable. With spring here,...
