A whole new take on cottaging. All the comforts of a modern resort, including all meals, resort facilities and programming for all ages, with all the adventures of camping steps outside. The perfect place to please everyone all at once, be it with children's activities, nature walks, a round of golf or pampering at the spa.

The destination you will want to come back visiting for years to come.

The Briars is a heritage Ontario lakeside resort, a refuge of relaxation and genuine hospitality amidst acres of lush lawns, gardens and towering trees. This very special property includes an 18 hole championship Scottish woodlands golf course, a premier spa and excellent recreational programming including but not limited to yoga, nature walks, bike tours, historical tours and various sports.

"Pure Opulence!"

Reviewed in

My wife and I spent the weekend at the Briars 5/6/11-5/8/11

This was such a relaxing and peaceful getaway.

The food was fantastic. The room was so clean and spacious. The grounds were extremely well kept.

We had a couples massage that was one of the best that we've ever experienced.

It was only a 45 minute drive from Downtown Toronto.

We HIGHLY recommend The Briars.
