Brussels

Although small in area, Brussels packs a punch – chockful of some of the most magical places in Huron County to stay, gorgeous gardens and event spaces, and even its very own Fairy Door Trail.

Start off your stay in Brussels by picking from one of its unparalleled accommodations, the DeWit Luxury Suites, featuring condominium style suites which seamlessly combine the past history of the building (built in 1892!) with modern amenities, the Gray’s of Brussels B&B, a century home with food offerings that are second to none (one review raving that owners Pete and Terri should receive a Michelin Star!), and Solace on Turnberry, where you could stay until the end of days, with their spacious suites, a unique gift shop, and a wellness spa!

Once the difficult decision of where to stay has been established, there is no question as to where to head to next, Jar Jam Pub and Eatery, for the hearty Uncle Jeff’s Big Breaky, an order of their homemade cabbage rolls, or the stacked Jam Jar Clubhouse Sandwich, or to JRs Family Restaurant for one of their personalized pizzas!

Once fueled up, it’s time to get your walking shoes on, partaking in the town’s historical walking tour. On your way, be sure to drop by Cowboy Loft, to pick yourself up a pair of fashionable leather cowboy boots or a big-buckled belt, JD & Company, for some locally made all natural beauty products, Cranbrook Acres Alpacas, to strike up a friendship with an alpaca (and to see all of the wonderful creations they have made with their fibre), the Brussels Farmers’ Market, for some homemade treats and sweets, or to take in the beauty of the Brussels Four Winds Barn!

Continue your stroll over to the Brussels Conservation Area, enjoying the community garden boxes (bursting with lettuce and spinach for the taking!) and the beautiful Butterfly Garden on the way. Pull up in the park for a picnic (perhaps with that pizza you picked up at JRs Family Restaurant earlier?), or just take in the peaceful ambiance, as you watch and listen to the Brussels Dam.
