Romance by the Lake

The summer season is all too short so make the best of it, and escape for some sun and fun, with the one you love, to the small lakeside town of Georgina, just an hour north of Toronto.   Don’t wait for the weekend to getaway, take advantage of The Briars Resort’s  ‘Mid-week Romance Escape’ package to spend some quality time together, relaxing in this idyllic lakeside setting.  The Briars Resort & Spa, located on the southern shores of Lake Simcoe, is a five-star heritage resort, with Victorian era charm, dating back to 1840.
