The Briars Resort Activities

The quintessential Ontario resort - discover a world of activities for everyone

With our beautiful grounds, proximity to Lake Simcoe, The Briars Resort has activities for everyone. Treat yourself to a peaceful or romantic retreat or enjoy a fun getaway with the family. We even have team building activities for corporate retreats and conferences.

Each evening we light a bonfire outside for your pleasure. Year-round, Weekend Escapes include activities such as guided walks, yoga and The Briars Saturday evening dinner dances - one of Ontario's most enduring cottage country traditions. During Summer, Holiday Weekends and School Holidays there are full Activities Programs daily. 

The beauty of nature beckons you to come on out and enjoy a game of tennis or golf, snow shoeing or skating, depending on the season and your fancy. Lake Simcoe beckons whether it's crystal blue or dramatic winter white. Marked trails are open year round to guide you through a private nature reserve, along the shore, or through our gardens.

You can splash in the solarium pool, relax in the whirlpool or sauna, work-out in the fitness room. Enjoy a quiet game of billiards, or curl up by the fire in one of the inn's secluded nooks. At The Briars it's all about you and your relaxation.
