Summer Life at The BarrelYards

Friday, July 15th, 2016

It’s time to celebrate the warm weather at The BarrelYards! From in-house amenities to local activities, we’ve got your summer plans covered.

Life is good at home, why leave?

Host your friends!

The terrace is a great place for casual outdoor dining on the patio, grill dinner on the barbeques, and soak in the sun. Need an idea for a heat quencher? How does a Watermelon-Tequila cocktail sound?








Have a movie night!

Sometimes you just need to get out of the humidity. Invite friends over for the evening to watch special event programming or movies in our 20 seat movie theatre. Check out these top summer rentals for 2016!


Friendly competition games night!

The air conditioned games room has a fantastic view, but keeps you cool as you set up the perfect shot on our pool table in the billiards room.  If you are in the mood for some old fashion fun, challenge your friends to some of these classic board games!

Pool Table

Stay bathing suit ready!

Revitalize your body and mind in the state-of-the-art fitness centre and yoga room with “his” and “hers” saunas and change rooms. This 4-week program is sure to kick your butt into shape!

With Individually controlled air conditioning, stay right in your suite. It’s summer! So enjoy some time off and curl up with a great book.  Dive into one of these summer reads while you lounge!
