HERE'S WHAT GUESTS AND MEMBERS HAVE TO SAY
"After 62 years of hunting deer, I have finally found deer heaven. I booked a hunt for October so I could get my own to experience something other than our normal Maryland & Pennsylvania expeditions. I was successful with, at the time, the best and biggest whitetail I had ever taken. He didn’t shoot. Based on the quality of the deer we had seen we booked another hunt for the following November. This time we were both successful, remarkably successful! But that’s only part of the Briarwood tale! The personnel were the main ingredients to making a hunting trip to a new venue an unforgettable adventure. Thanks to Mike, and Chris for this opportunity. We will return. If you haven’t tried it, do it!"
"This is the second year that our family started getting together at the holidays. Pine Lake Lodge more than exceeded our expectations as far as size and accommodations. We had a great time and look forward to coming back in the future."
"Wonderful family weekend! Skiing, tubing, food, football, family games. Treasured memories for all. Already planning for next year."
'We had a great time. Fished the ponds, lakes, streams. Caught bass, bluegill, perch, and got 9 trout. Ate smoked trout for the first time. Had a great deer meal with Chris and Kristy. Homemade ice cream & strawberry shortcake. Great time!"
"We really love it here at Briarwood. We have spent numerous weekends, Christmas and our 30th wedding anniversary with numerous family friends here. This weekend we are here once again with friends from high school and college. The fishing has been wonderful and the weather beautiful. The autumn colors are beautiful especially when reflecting on the blues. Already planning our next visit!"
"It is the adventures in life which make it worth living, and what a great adventure I’ve had hunting here at Briarwood Sporting Club! Thank you very much and I’ll see you again somewhere down the hunting trail!"
"Few words can express the realness of this experience. We had a great time getting to know nature and amenities of this magnificent haven. This heaven away from the city makes you appreciate life even more. God Bless."
"It is becoming a tradition that we spend a couple days during Spring Break here at Briarwood. The boys love it - and this cabin is our favorite, although we go back and forth. The Briarwood cabin and Rainbow have their great qualities as well. The view in the morning makes me forget, reflect and relax. Oh, and the fishing is good too!"
"We had some friends here to celebrate our birthday’s with us. It was relaxing for everyone on a Sunday afternoon. One of our friends had beginners luck as a fisherman and he didn’t want to go home! The lodge was so private and so well equipped. Our stay was perfect. Thanks!"
"Crunch of the Autumn leaves. Sights and smells of Earth beginning her seasonal slumber. Hearing, feeling and then watching breezes bend the tree limbs and sway waters edge cottontails. We shared great vistas, meals, fishing, and experiences together. Lots of laughter over the tales told and card games played. Our hearts are full and senses brimming with delight! Thanks everyone!"
"Traveled from the state of Washington to experience the beauty of Briarwood. This is an incredible estate, anyone’s paradise. Had the great experience to harvest a mature Whitetail buck. Great food and awesome people. Looking forward to a return trip."
"Came from Michigan, had an amazing time! My uncle and I each harvested great bucks, and had fun watching more bucks in the woods than we ever thought possible. Thanks for a great time! PS…240 yards. Long shot!"
"This is one of those destinations where you don’t know where to start to explain the experience. It was a wonderful time, hunt & stay. The staff and the property are top shelf! I’ll be back!"
"This has been a terrific week! Can’t say enough about the staff, accommodations, and amazing bucks! My thanks to all of you for such a fine week of hunting and for your attention to detail! Warm regards."
"Briarwood is a little slice of heaven! We had an exceptional time. The owner Chris, our guide Mike, and everyone else truly made this an experience of a lifetime! We’ve seen the largest deer of our lifetime and our grandson got his deer of a lifetime named “Josie Whales”. Looking forward to our next visit!"
"What an awesome weekend! We brought our grandsons to join us for a weekend at Briarwood Lodge. The expressions on their faces when walking in the door were priceless. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and warm, cozy fires by the huge fireplace….s'mores, popcorn and Hershey bars for snacks after a long day of fishing. The weather was chilly but our hearts were warm. We taught them to fly fish this weekend. What a great memorable weekend!"
