We stayed in room 621 which is ground level unit in the Beaver Building. The room was spacious with kind size bed, a huge bathroom with our own big tub. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was very good and Lisa was very friendly and helpful. We had a great time.

Just spent 3 nights here. Two bedroom units are a good size.
Only irritation small TVs which most resort hotels like this now have 55in TVs or larger.
Rooms have a cottage style decor.
Nice and comfortable.
Games room needs an overhaul.
Many fireplace rooms are nice to lounge around in like the boathouse and the breakfast area.
Movie theatre is excellent with seating for about 20 people.
Overall a fun place to stay.

We stayed in room 512 which is an upper level corner unit in the Blue Heron Building. It was beautifully spacious with two separate bathrooms, large soaker tub, fully equipped kitchen, comfy pull out couch, gas fireplace, large balcony/porch with a view of the pond, boathouse and other buildings. The bathroom amenities were of excellent quality, there was an option to borrow appliances such as a panini maker and waffle maker, a washer and dryer were included in the unit, the decor was modelled after a muskoka cottage and was very homey. Breakfast buffet offered in the gorgeous Lodge building on the weekends with an option for a breakfast basket delivered to your room 7 days a week. Gym is ample with adjoining hot tubs for family or adult only use. Theatre with nightly movies and video games room open to guests. I absolutely loved the homey feel of our unit.

We visited this resort late in the season as the hills were mostly closing and the conditions were not super however we had a great time and loved the location. The rooms are very spacious (we had a two bedroom configuration) with everything you need to host yourself if you feel like grabbing groceries and staying in. Beds are comfortable, washer/dryer available in room if needed, parking included and a very nice common area with hot tub, game room, lounge and in warmer temperatures swimming.

Around the resort is beautiful with plenty of scenery and hiking trails to enjoy. The area is loaded with outdoor activities to enjoy no matter the season and of course in the winter skiing is the main attraction. If you are used to more difficult or large mountains, this place does not meet that expectation however they are great for beginners/intermediate skiers, or advanced skiers who are just looking to get out on the slopes.

Overall a comfy hotel in a beautiful part of Ontario, worth checking out the location and staying at Embarc if you can!

We've stayed a number of good times at Embarc, summer and winter; every time has been memorable. It's ideal for non-smoking families--with fully equipped kitchens and "boathouse" outdoor pool/Activity Centre, which allows complimentary lounging (day usage) before check-in or after check-out. Service is always good. Reception has an arcade and movie theatre below, and a wide range of free DVD movies for borrowing. Larger (1-3 bedroom) units have their own patio furniture or hammock in serene surroundings, including free herbs for the picking, and covered BBQs. There's onsite beach volleyball and sand-castles in the summer; free quick shuttles to the ski-mountain base in winter. Living room sofabeds can accommodate 2 extra people in front of the fireplace TV. Heating and air con are reliable, and even 1-bedrooms have in-suite washer/dryer with detergent. Basically, you can expect a private post-and-beam style timeshare/condo in a relaxed cottage environment. This resort was recently bought from Intrawest by Diamonds International, which has made some improvements and new buildings. The member base is growing. For any traveller from out of town, there are $25 "airport" ski-shuttles (AUC picks up passengers outside Finch subway station on the East side of Yonge; Greyhound departs by Chestnut Street/Bay, downtown, near St. Patrick TTC station). Whereas other accommodation bookings on Blue Mountain website require trekking for key pick-up at the far side inn to check-in anyplace, Embarc is a convenient one-stop across from the village market and conference centre...with free onsite parking. I would return to Embarc again, including the Apple Fair at Blue (with free daily return shuttles to Thornbury town, 10 minutes away), Oct. Thanksgiving weekend. You'll rush to get here, and then take your time to unwind!
