Just returned from a 2 night get away to The Briars. Loved It!! Excellent customer service and accommodation. Amazing meal selections. Enjoyed the pool and spa. Found the historical information about the resort very interesting. Great view of Lake Simcoe from our balcony. Will definitely return .

This visit was for an event, but we have stayed there many times before. There are assorted room types. We prefer the cottages and the walk along the lake to the main inn, but if you are not a walker or worry about the weather, then stay in the main inn. The place is a little tired in some regards,...

We spent a weekend doing a great yoga class, swimming in warm pool, hot sauna, walking on forest and golf club trails and enjoying delicious meals with friends. Rooms are plain, but bed was very comfortable. Staff are very accommodating. A close drive from Toronto.

Have been to the Briars many times and in all seasons. This is an excellent Inn and resort to unwind, enjoy the scenery and excellent food. During the summer and other holiday seasons they have programs that include kayaking, boating, golfing, bicycling, nature walks and fitness events like yoga. They have outdoor areas for volleyball, croquet, Bacchic and other games.... More

We booked a cottage last year for our annual end of January girl's weekend. We decided we wanted to be closer to the main building at the Inn next year. On arrival we asked if we could see some alternate accommodations for next year. Not only did they show us 3 other possible rooms/suites/cottages, but offered to make the change... More

I want to start by saying unequivocally that the staff at this resort are fantastic. From Lisa on the front desk, to Michelle in the restaurant, they were all friendly and professional. The food in the restaurant is very good, interesting selections, well prepared and presented and delicious. Where the resort fell short for us, was in the small details.... More

Stayed at the Briars for a weekend getaway with mom. The resort staff is incredibly accommodating, friendly and outstanding at exceeding expectations. The food at the resort is absolutely incredibly, home made, healthy and tasty. The rooms are well appointed and keeping in the tradition of the resort's historic past. The resort is a labyrinth of rooms, towers and lounge... More

Spent a wonderful week-end getaway. Our room was beautiful overlooking the lake,meals were outstanding and the resort amenities great! The cross country trails were fabulous and we thoroughly enjoyed the sleigh ride. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Winter is beautiful here. Looking forward to returning.

Visited this resort for an afternoon visit and lunch with work coloegues. This is a beautiful place with friendly staff. I would image is an even nicer place in the summer with no snow on the ground. Would recommend the Briars for a stay or just a meal. Great place can't wait to come back in the summer.

Glad that you enjoyed lunch with us and you found our staff friendly. Yes it may be even nicer in the summer when you can dine outside by the fountain. Thanks for you comments. Bob More

Do read our own review of 15 Jan 2015 (54 weeks ago). It says it all, but here we are home again after our 5th enjoyable stay at The Briars. We just don't understand where "Kwcani" (review 13 Dec 15) is "coming from", as we have never experienced any of this supposed unpleasantness. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and... More
