We just returned from a short stay in and near Toronto. We decided to spend one night at the Inn at Horseshoe near Barrie. The entire resort is very secluded. When you come upon it, it is very surprising to see such a resort along a very woody and weedy road. It is a very easy drive, off of Route 400. Although we stayed at the Inn, there are also "Lodges" and a sister hotel, the Carriage Resort, on the same property. The amenities were a plus -- a large, clean exercise room with two ellipticals, two treadmills, and a fitness machine with resistance weights (although there were no free weights). There was a nice indoor pool (although the hot tub flowed into it, making it quite warm) and an outdoor pool, with hours from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. There was a "saloon" that looked friendly and a nice restaurant (we didn't eat there). We did eat at the western restaurant and the fare was OK, but kind of pricey for sandwiches and appetizers; it was definitely in need of some renovation but mostly clean and friendly -- and convenient right on site. There was a nice bar off the lobby and a coffee bar in the lobby. The grounds were kept very clean and parking was free and right outside the door. The best part was feeling very safe in the surroundings -- although it was in the middle of nowhere, the site itself was busy and safe. The Valley golf course surrounded the Inn and we had to drive a couple of miles to get to play the Highlands course -- it was very nice and challenging. We also found many lovely new homes surrounding the course and, virtually surrounding the resort but not within sight -- very affluent neighborhoods but not visible from the main road.
If you are looking to golf, try the Valley course since it is right at the Inn unless you really want to be challenged by the Highlands course. Or maybe try both.

The regular "Horseshoe" room was plenty big enough for four of us -- me, my husband and my two grown sons, 18 and 20. It was very clean; the bathroom was roomy (although the sink was not separate) and the air was controlled by a thermostat and worked beautifully and quietly. The inn was definitely renovated recently; I am very picky and I would not hesitate to visit the Horseshoe again -- the 1.5 hour drive from Toronto is worth it -- but stay at least two nights to enjoy all there is to offer.
