Excellent food and nice grounds and places to explore . Try it and you will be glad you did. Weather was excellent that time of year. In summer you can canoe and enjoy the lake too. The rooms were clean the beds comfortable. We’re with a large group so met in banquet rooms..

This is a wonderful resort for a group to come to in order to have a reunion or a family get-together or even for couples on their own, hoping to have a romantic getaway. The place reeks of old-world charm. There are nooks and crannies to explore, lots of history to discover and

What is there to do around there at this time of the year (winter)?
Dear Bianca, A lot will depend upon the weather, with a bit more snow we will have our cross country ski trails up soon, snow shoeing and hiking on our walking trails as well. Inside we've got a solarium indoor pool with a hot tub and sauna, along with a games room and fitness area. Within a 15 min drive there is an outdoor activity area called the ROC with tubing, toboggan hill, skating rink and more .. Thanks for asking, please don't hesitate to call us if you wish a bit more details. 1- 800-465-2376 Bob

Hi Judy G. Hugh here from The Briars. The Golf Club is right beside our cottages - about a two minute drive or ten minute walk from the inn. Discount coupons (prime time) are $65. We have B and B or all-inclusive packages. If you phone our res team they can put together a package for you to consider. Best wishes.

Hi Hoe do we get here from the Airport
You can check out Toronto Pearson's out of town van services in their website. There are several choices listed, although I am not familiar which goes towards York/ Jackson Point. You should make arrangements before your flight to make the reservations. A former colleague of mine could not drive and used these services to go to the small towns from Pearson airport.
