Head to The Briars Resort & Spa, located on the southern shores of Lake Simcoe, for a weekend of golf and romance. The Briars Resort is a five-star heritage resort, with Victorian era charm, dating back to 1840. Guests at The Briars have access to the private Briars Golf Club, so book a Golf Getaway Package to enjoy this relaxing, beautifully maintained, walkable 18-hole course. Be sure to book your tee time in advance!
The Briars also features a luxury spa and dining rooms on site. Add a couple’s massage to your reservation to ensure your retreat is complete with some pampering and relaxation.The Dining room atmosphere is relaxed and made up of three separate dining spaces, with casual and fine dining options available.
If you prefer to venture off the grounds for your dining experience, consider The Corner House Bistro in Keswick, just a short drive away, for a more intimate experience, or Jackson’s Point Lake Simcoe Arms, for some more casual fare at this authentic British pub with 15+ beers on tap. Top it off with some delicious and refreshing ice-cream at Lakeside Pizzeria & Gelato, also in Jackson’s Point, where more than 50 flavors of gelato await!
Be sure to include a visit to the Georgina Arts Centre and Gallery to check out the local artist scene, or explore the area by bike with Ride The Wind Rentals. The Briars also offers a number of on-site activities and programs to take advantage of during your stay, so look through their Recreation Guide to see what’s in store.
