We really enjoyed our week-end stay. We had a mini cousins reunion, 3 couples - one from Detroit, one from Montreal and one from Ottawa, so geographically the Briars was sort of in the middle. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. This is an older historic resort but mostly well kept. Don't expect spacious modern rooms, they are a... More

Old but but enjoyed the week there. One week was to long though. I think two to three days would be enough. The food was excellent the room are nice. Staff is excellent. Not enough to do for a week and too expensive. If you want to relax and chill it's great.

A beautiful quaint retreat just north of the city. Staff were so helpful and a nice note and bottle of wine was left in our room upon our arrival. If you're a history buff, you'll enjoy exploring the library and other rooms. The facilities are fading somewhat, and need some updating. But charming, nonetheless. We enjoyed using the bikes for...

We stayed over for the romance package including dinner, breakfast and a couples massage. The property is very nice with a beach and a dock over the road. There is a trail to walk and is a nice setting, overall there is not a lot to do. The room was average and the spa was average as the building is... More

I don't know how a resort with this reputation could so massively screw up a much needed retreat - but it happened. We arrived at 10:30am and departed at 9:30pm after booking a 2 night stay. We didn't pay a dime. Front desk staff were nice on the phone but then they were struck by lightening or something. Our reservation... More

The Briars is a sprawling historic estate with old world charm. The property is spacious with lovely old style gardens, patios and garden chairs. All of the food fits in with the best I’ve ever had. Our room was apparently one of the nicest in the old house…. a mix of antiques with an updated bathroom, TV and a new... More

What a lovely Ontario resort! Set on beautiful Lake Simcoe, The Briars is a great place for a quick weekend getaway or a more extended vacation. Lots of activities for kids but also a great place for romance, a girls spa weekend or even business. I was there for a week and there were 2 weddings during that time. The... More

This was our first visit to The Briars. We were attracted by the prospect of a "luxury" resort so close to home, and after seeing it was a member of Ontario's Finest Resorts and reading the reviews posted here thought we would give it a try. What a mistake. We were billed nearly $700 for only two days on their... More

We recently visited with our team from work. The location is beautiful right across from Lake Simcoe. Rooms were Very clean, although somewhat dated. Spa is located in the tower and is small and quaint. Lake Simcoe facial was awesome. Grounds are well kept and lots of walking areas. Private beach had quite a bit of goose droppings - not... More

13 coworkers went for an overnight and had a great time. The included meals were excellent, the rooms comfortable, the water's edge not well developed, the cleanliness of the lounges lacking, no effort to do upkeep with respect to spider webs and bugs around room doors and verandas, but providing us a hospitality suite made for a great social environment....
