You will love the natural beauty of Barrie. But if you have time, make a 2-hour, 48-minute drive farther north along Highway 400 to French River. Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi visited the provincial park and spent time at Sand Beach Lodge. The view is incredible and apparently, the scotch goes down easy.

Brijbassi: “A Scotsman, Brian O’Rawe has latched onto the spirit of those adventurous men. He visited the lodge many times after moving to Toronto about a decade ago, and realized he was happier spending his days in the pristine wilderness setting of French River Provincial Park than in the bustle of Canada’s largest metropolis. O’Rawe also knew a good thing when he saw it. A former consultant for international hotel companies, including Mandarin Oriental, O’Rawe was convinced the lodge and its setting would be a draw.

Once you’ve gazed on French River, you’ll be convinced it was his business savvy not the scotch that steered him to purchase the property that was built by the Seagram whiskey clan in the 1920s as a family retreat. French River is quintessential Canada: big, empty, beautiful, welcoming, and calm.”
