where adventure enthusiasts find Canadian outdoor recreation & accommodation

The Briars



You'll simply love The Briars. This lakeside heritage resort provides refuge for guests among acres of lush lawns, gardens, towering trees and cedar hedges; our surrounding forests, fields and streams are home to a variety of wildlife, as well as a Scottish woodlands golf course and a live summer theatre in the old Red Barn. The Briars offers traditional country inn hospitality, with extensive facilities and services--just an hour from Toronto on the south shore of Lake Simcoe.

At The Briars, you can stay in cottages (by the lake or the golf course) or rooms at the Inn (overlooking gardens and the lake). The cottages are relaxed in style and provide extra privacy. Rooms at the Inn are cozy and are closer to year-round action. There is much variety! At the Inn we have premium and deluxe rooms, rooms with fireplaces, the suite, and six heritage rooms in the original Manor House furnished with antiques. Our dining room serves three scrumptious meals daily throughout the year. Service is friendly, and the ambiance is relaxed and social.

Visit the Spa at The Briars and experience the ultimate restorative escape. Relax in our tranquil country setting, inhale soothing scents and choose from a wide variety of relaxing massages, nourishing facials, hydrotherapy, European wraps, and stress relief therapies designed to balance mind, body and soul. All spa treatments and programs have been carefully developed to complement the array of recreational activities at the Briars.

Group get-togethers are a Briars specialty. Let us put together a package for your getaway or vacation, for a class or family reunion, or for a productive meeting. Then, once here, you will see why guests find refuge and call The Briars "Another World".
