The first cottage was on the lake shore with a magnificant view of the lake but a very small yard because of the shore line. However, across the road (which is two lane main...

Our annual reunion of classmates at the Briars was as good as ever. The establishment has new owners, but the character of the venue remains warm and inviting. Beautiful grounds and landscaping have been improved as well as freshening up in the individual rooms. The kitchen is as appetizing as ever. Hard to not enjoy oneself at the Briars

Thank you Wade76. We are so pleased to see that you enjoyed the Easter Weekend food, beautiful grounds, pool and staff. I appreciate your suggestions for the rooms and spa. It sounds like the blinds weren't fully closed in your treatment room and the sun is getting brighter. We will look into that. Best wishes, Hugh Sibbald.

Met friends and enjoyed a lovely one night stay at The Briars. Friendly staff greeted us at reception and checked into room just after 3:00. Took advantage of pool and jacuzzi, and enjoyed a fabulous dinner, with servers Nicole and Jermaine doing a great job, very polite, attentive and friendly. Food hot, well presented and delicious. Large portions, steak cooked...

Very cozy country hotel. They are very accommodating with round the clock shuttles to some of the farther cottages. The food was great and all of the staff were top notch and some of the friendliest resort staff I've ever encountered.

We visited the Briars for two nights and purchased the trip via Wag Jag. The grounds are beautiful and even in the winter, the ambiance is very enjoyable. There are small self-contained fires with that great smoky smell around the grounds. We had a view of the lake. Our room had a balcony with two chairs. The room was clean...
