What's Savvy about this Jaunt
The Horseshoe Resort
has a range of activities available that will keep the family busy all day. From mazes to mini-putt and from rock climbing to pony rides, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
Along with the traditional activities, the resort has the only fully operational Ogo Park
in all of Canada! Let us explain: Ogo lets you climb inside a giant plastic ball and barrel down a hill.
In addition, you can rest easy on this hassle-free jaunt because you'll be provided with more than expected amenities (like a bag of prepared groceries). What's not to love?
Parents will love
Conveniently located in Barrie, just one hour from Toronto, off Highway 400, it's the perfect getaway for any day of the week. The 1,000 square foot condo comes with two bedrooms, two four-piece bathrooms, a fully-enclosed balcony and a pullout sofa with fireplace.
Dining at Horseshoe Valley is a great experience, where everyone can enjoy locally grown foods and endless options at one of six restaurants, cafes or snack stands. Dine in style at Silks Dining Lounge (featuring pasta, seafood and steak) or check out the casual atmosphere at Crazy Horse. Don't forget about the kitchen in your room and the prepared groceries that are included in your stay!
The resort offers tons of activities for the adventurous spirit, but it also caters to those who wish to wind down after an active day with the kids. Pamper yourself with a facial or couples massage at the Shizen Spa
, or improve your game on the green at one of Horseshoe's two 18-hole championship golf courses.
Kids will love
An exhilarating adventure park is sure to excite any child with activities including ziplining and mini putting, as well as the opportunity to experience Canada's only fully functional Ogo Park where kids can tumble down hills while they're protected by a plastic bubble (kids love to be able to have done something before any of their friends have).
For pickier eaters, the mystery can be taken out of dinner by preparing meals in your room's kitchen with the groceries provided - snack packs are included!
The 600 acre playground Kids Korral, or the indoor/outdoor pools are also great for keeping the kids entertained and a classic Canadian beavertail pastry is a great reward for good behavior at the end of a busy day.
