The Briars has rooms in the main part of the resort but there are also lodges down the road along the water. Our group of 20+ had the Mayfair Lodge. It was a great size for us ~ ten bedrooms with a common living room/kitchen on the second floor. Our room was on the main floor.
On Friday, there was a champagne welcome and then we headed to the main inn for supper. Then we headed back to our lodge for some drinks, chatting and knitting (I brought my afghan along).
I had a massage at 10:15am (it was great! I like a deep massage and the massage therapist combined Swedish with shiatsu) and then a pedicure at 11:30am (my toes are a lovely shade of purple). Then I met everyone for lunch.

There are lots of activities at the resort (sleigh rides, snow golf, walks, snowshoeing, a pool, fitness room, etc.) but I felt like chillin' out (life has been way too busy for me lately) so I went to the tower to finish my book.

I headed back to the lodge a couple hours later for more chatting and knitting (and a couple drinks) before we headed back to the main inn for supper. We were early so we went to the Drinkwater Lounge first.

After supper, Chris, Darlene, Monica and I went back to the Drinkwater for a couple drinks before heading back to the the lodge. When we got there, the PJ party was just getting over.
I checked out and then headed to the tower again to read and chill. I went on the 10:30am walk with The Briar's fitness person, Sheila. She took Monica, Arlene and I around the area and we ended up at the lake (Lake Simcoe). The lake is frozen and there were a bunch of people ice fishing. There were lots of trucks and huts on the ice so we figured it was safe enough to hold our weight.

Monica and I went back to the tower to read for a while and then headed down for lunch.
