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

We had trouble finding a resort that was open for a mid-week winter getaway and were pleased to find the Briars, never having been there before. We certainly weren't disappointed! From the moment we walked in we were made to feel most welcome. The lady at the front desk was friendly, courteous, and most helpful. Our room was charming, clean,... More

I was stuck in this small town following an ice storm. The front desk supervisor (Ricardo) was kind enough to provide me with a lovely room, on short notice at a reduced rate. The room was well appointed, immaculate and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again

I stayed at the Briars for two weeks for business and found it to be comfortable and clean. The rooms are nothing fancy, just simple furnishings. There is a fireplace in the room, but I did not use it. This is not a modern hotel with modern style. It is more country style, something like Grandma's house. The food was... More

Thank you for your very nice comments, we are glad we could make your extended stay with us comfortable. We will be looking into a system of better signage on our buffet to advise of potential allergy concerns, a great idea! Bob Law, Resort Manager More

The Briars is a beautiful resort. I was just reading over some more current reviews.. Its unfortunate that the couple staying for their family friends wedding had a bad experience.. I did notice that this couple leaves nothing but terrible reviews on the majority of establishments they review. So please take that into consideration when reading through these reviews! We...

After an exhausting Christmas we tried to find a resort to visit for a quiet break and perhaps a little winter activity. We didn't want to be over run at a busy ski resort...we wanted to relax and re-charge before New Years. We remembered how much we enjoyed The Briars several years ago on a summer get-away so we decided... More

We chose this venue location because of the convenient location, the gorgeous landscaping, eclectic charm indoors, and the winter wedding package. Our weekend was awesome, from the moment we arrived until we left, the staff took great care of us and helped us pull off an awesome event. It was the first wedding of our generation in my husbands family,... More

Our dear friends picked this place for their son's wedding, so we decided to stay the nite. We were placed in the Pinewood Cottage, about 2 km from the main lodge and were told not to worry about the distance that there was a shuttle that would pick us up and bring us back to the cottage so we could...

We were sorry to hear of your disappointment in the cottage, and did appreciate the fact you called us on Sunday to advise you had not stayed. We are disappointed that you posted a review before we had the opportunity to follow up as we said we would, allowing us to make it right and your review more accurate. As... More

My wife and I seldom give a perfect score but The Briars comes close to it. This is our 4th stay in the past 8 years and we will definitely return for more. Contrary to a few detractors' reviews, we found the employees to be professional, obliging, and willing to spend a few moments chatting about mutual interests, their families,... More

Quaint and lovely hotel. Visited with my nieces and sister for a pre Christmas getaway. Lovely clean rooms, we even had a working fireplace in our room. Food was very good. Had drinks in the cozy bar and played board games. Pool and hot tub were a hit with the six year old. Nice surroundings and a fire burned in... More
