This is a lovely little retreat in the country. My husband and I went for a one night stay and loved this little gem. The rooms were clean & comfortable, and the surroundings were beautiful. The two most wonderful features were the food - which was absolutely magnificent, and the service. I can honestly say that in all my years... More

What a beautiful place to escape from the city and unwind. Me and my friend spent overnight at The Briar's. I will agree with most of what the previews reviews said. Set on the shores of Lake Simcoe, this place is packed full of history. And the very old buildings were very cool and awesome to look at. I had... More

This property has much history! We were struck by the character of the main building and liked the many common rooms (some were used by the founding family) that were available for us to use. There are a lot of family photos throughout the main building and you can read lots about the Sibbalds there. We spent some time in... More

This is a secluded property in a remote location standing on a very large footprint. All aspects of our stay were excellent, including staff, food and accommodations. The cottage we stayed in was not the most up to date in terms of appearance, more the family style of cottage, but it was very clean and exceptionally well appointed with everything... More

We returned from The Briars today after a two-day, one-night stay. I'd been there several years ago with a girlfriend for a girls' weekend and once for a work-related trip. The good things and bad things remain the same. First off, while most of the service people are friendly enough, there were a few who didn't seem to know what... More

We paid top dollar for a package on Easter Sunday and had high hopes for this lovely inn. The staff, service and the food quality was excellent but the inn itself and the rooms are really old and worn and run down. This place really needs some refurbishment regardless of trying to maintain that quaint "by gone era" quality.

My wife and I spent last weekend at The Briars looking for a very quiet, relaxing getaway before our second baby is born. The Briars delivered completely. Check-in was easy, and we ended up getting a room that we were not completely happy with, we asked to see any other rooms, and Sheila (front desk person) was more then accommodating.... More

I recently traveled to Canada for business and stayed at the Briar's. It is an old property that has been maintained very well. From the antiques that you find throughout the property to rooms that are comfortable, well appointed and give you an amazing view of the lake; I just could not say more about the place. The people; beyond... More

For over 30 years we have been drawn back to the magic of the Briars at Jackson's Point. We have just returned from a weekend stay to escape the cold winter of late. We invited our daughter who first experienced the Briars as a young child, and her partner (his first visit) this past weekend. Somehow, winter didn't feel quite... More

My husband and I just returned from a 3day, 2night stay at The Briars. The temperature had plummeted again and the snow was falling when we arrived. Walking into the front door we were greeted with a warm fire burning in the sitting room. We were greeted by friendly staff at the front desk and got into our room quickly.... More
