I cannot say enough about how wonderful my recent trip to Briarwood was. From the food and lodging to the guides and staff, everything and everybody was top notch. My guide Brennan was knowledgeable and professional and the owners Chris and Kristy were very accommodating. The whole Briarwood experience is one I will remember forever. I would not hesitate to recommend Briarwood to anybody. I can't wait to come back next year! If you are thinking about booking a trip, you owe it to yourself to make it happen!

An amazing hunting and fishing experience, a beautiful place. Amazing accommodation and staff friendly and caring

We spent a few days at Briarwood and stayed in the Rainbow Lodge. Great facility for relaxation and entertaining. We really enjoyed the deck view looking out over the water. The fishing was great as always. I highly recommend Briarwood lodging and fishing.

My entire family recently had an opportunity to stay at the Rainbow Lodge . We had a total of 12 people all together. The property was beautiful and the fish were plentiful (we had a trout and catfish dinner one night). The staff was helpful, responsive, and made the experience top notch. The owners have truly created a special place. We had a great time and made many family memories that will last a lifetime. The family consensus was that this needs to be our new MO for family vacations (as opposed to the beach or the “magic” in Orlando).

This is an absolute must for outdoors enthusiast or if you simply appreciate being around nature. Incredible place and amazing people. Its basically heaven on earth. I wish I could give it more stars 🙂

My husband's family rents out a lodge several times a year here. It is such a blessing to get away in to nature and away from the bustle of the city with loved ones. The lodges blend modern utility with just the right amount of rustic luxe making one feel like a home away from home. Family time aside, it is made more special by the hospitality and dedicated staff that upkeep these beautiful grounds. Some of the bigger lodges have covered outdoor areas that allow you to enjoy the lakes in any weather. There is an abundance of trails and lush woods that give life to many of God's little creatures making it a wonderland of exploration for bird watchers, lovers of butterflies, chipmunks, salamanders and more. My nieces are never left without something to explore, and our boys enjoy being out on the boats until they're more cooked than the fish. During the day there are plenty of activities to stay busy with, our family is more keen on the fishing. At night the whole world slows. You relax by a fire and watch the stars while taking in the stillness feeling full and peaceful. This is a place where memories are made.There's also a town nearby that has a few activities to offer and it seems often holds events such as festivals.

I just feel compelled to write yet another review for Briarwood Sporting Club. I have hunted there 3 times and I am going again this fall. So many outfitters advertise they provide the “experience of a lifetime.” While may do deliver a great hunting experience, Briarwood is truly and exceptional hunting experience. I have been hunting Whitetails for nearly 50 years and Briarwood is just magical. I have never experienced anything similar. From the time you arrive to long after your hunt, you know you have experienced something very very special and your heart longs to return. If you are considering Briarwood for your next deer hunting experience, I hope my review will be the nudge you need to schedule your hunt that will truly be an “experience of a lifetime.” Chris Daniels and his team are simply amazing. Not only are they great people, they are all exceptional hunters. I can’t wait for fall so I can get back to Briarwood. If you would like to talk to me about my experiences at Briarwood, please feel free to call me at 816-914-2124. I love to talk hunting.

One of the best fishing clubs I have ever had the pleasure to fish. The land is beautiful, staff professional, and fish are plentiful. Cannot wait to see you again.

Briarwood Sporting Club is a very special place. I just love hunting there. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating. The property is so beautiful and well designed. They continue to invest in enhancements to what is already an amazing facility. The quality of the deer is beyond belief. Briarwood is so much more than huge bucks. It’s the total experience of being in the field and sharing the love of hunting with likeminded sportsman. I just returned from my second visit with my son and we have already paid our deposits for a third visit. Many hunting outfitters will claim they provide the “opportunity of a lifetime” and they work hard for their clients. At Briarwood, it really is an experience of a lifetime. Our guides, Jeff and Dane, are true professionals and have become good friends. Thank you Chris and Kristy Daniels for your attention to detail and for creating such a remarkable place. My son and I will hunt Briarwood many times over. If you are considering Briarwood and need additional information or just have questions, please feel free to give me a call. I would love to field your questions and tell you more about Briarwood. My cell is 816-914-2124.

For the past 8 years our family has rented pine lodge at Briarwood. The lodge is able to handle our large family with room to spare. Briarwood is centrally located in Ohio an close to Ski Madriver and tubing. The staff has always been helpful and friendly. We’ve already book for 2019.

One word, Exceptional! Worth every penny! Spent 5 days at Briarwood Sporting Club hunting white tail deer, we were 4 for 4! We all had the time of our life and would like to thank Chris and his family and staff for welcoming us and treating us like family. I recommend Briarwood Sporting Club to anyone that is planing an event and would like to give either family or customers a memory of a lifetime. We look forward to returning in the fall to do it all over again!

Briarwood stay was a comfortable, amazing gathering place for my family to share holiday time together. We enjoyed seeing the wild turkey and deer coming close enough to view from the breakfast bar. Many memories shared around the beautiful indoor fire pit area. Thank You

Phenomenal time, Chris and Christy and there family are terrific people, they cater to your every need and they spend quality time with you. Our guide Brennon was a exceptionally polite young man that always put us on deer and also catered to our every need. Mike and Pam also where great cooks and great people. Our whole group had a great time we all got Deer and we will be back.

I grew up hunting whitetails in Northern Minnesota dreaming about big bucks and the thrill of watching whitetails during the rut. I have lived in Alaska for awhile and when I had the opportunity to purchase this hunt through the SCI Alaska chapter I really didn't know what to expect. Here's what I can say about Briarwood, it is a living, breathing, whitetail dream world. That may sound excessive, but what you experience on this property is nothing short of amazing. The attention to detail from the meticulously maintianed property to your treatment in the lodge and dining table are impressive to say the least. Chris, Mike and Brennan couldn't be better hosts and I truly enjoyed my time with them. So in Mike's words, this place is "PRIMO!!"

I would recommend the quality of the staff, the quality of the game here, the friendliness of the atmosphere and true caring of all the owners, guides, and staff members. I had a terrific hunt. The owners, guides, and staff made me feel at home. They all legitimately care about the quality of my aunt and my stay and asked me on several occasions what they could do to make this day more enjoyable. Definitely five star.
