Celebrate Summer on Lake Simcoe The Briars
For generations now, The Briars resort & spa in Jackson’s Point, has been welcoming guests to its expansive grounds, on the shores of Lake simcoe. Only 1 hour from the boundaries of Toronto, many are often surprised at the close proximity of this vastly different setting. Tranquil and captivating scenery covers this family owned and operated resort’s 200 acres of land, instantly transporting it’s guests from a busy city life to fresh air and relaxation.
Acquired in the late 1870’s by the Sibbald family, The Briars has seen many phases of life. A championship 18 hole Scottish Woodlands golf course was added in 1924. The once family home was transformed into an Inn in 1942 and the Briars Inn and Country Club was officially born. The focus of the property became the Resort in the mid 1970s as additional guestroom wings were built, an indoor solarium pool, whirlpool and sauna, various meeting rooms as well as other recreational areas.
Today The Briars Resort & Spa has a lot to offer many different types of guests. A quiet couple may enjoy exploring the many scenic walking trails, a side by side couples massage in The Briars Spa or even just curling up by a crackling fire in one of the many sitting rooms. In contrast, a young family can splash around the indoor or outdoor pools, enjoy the games rooms on a rainy day or take part in the multitude of activities outlined in the recreational programs.
With a total of 86 accommodations to choose from, all guests are sure to find something that suits them. Summertime is a fantastic time of year on Lake Simcoe and the Cottage accommodations are some of the most popular for groups of all sizes. Mayfair, a 10 bedroom, 10 bathroom private lodge is perfect for social gatherings or family reunions.
Lakefront 2 bedroom cottages are a perfect choice for a small family or a group of friends to getaway and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the area. For a couple who wants a little more privacy, perhaps even to golf in the afternoons, a lakeside guestroom with a view of the lake as you open your eyes in the morning, there is simply nothing better.
All in all, The Briars has all the feelings of a trip to the cottage – fresh air, quiet roads, and nature at its finest – while having the perfect balance of the luxuries of a full service resort – mouthwatering casual and fine dining, recreational facilities, dinner dances and so much more. The Briars has maintained its reputation for true hospitality. Described by guests as “Another World,” just an hour from Toronto, its known as a superb place to relax and be looked after, enjoy the fine country dining, cozy up in a corner to read, or to venture out on the property and lake. So perhaps this summer, when you are making plans to head North, you should instead choose the easy commute and the luxury of hospitality. The Briars – easy to get to, and easy to enjoy.
This summer marks the 90th Anniversary of The Briars Golf Club and to celebrate the occasion, The Briars Resort will be offering golf coupons to overnight guests at the special rate of $55 that will be available midweek, or weekend, from Victoria Weekend until July 12th.
