“Seven years ago, despite being outsiders to the hospitality industry and to Hudson, we bought The Willow with the hope of saving this much-loved institution. We undertook a major renovation, and sought to elevate the quality of its service, its offerings, and its foods, to be worthy of its unique location and magical setting on the Lake of Two Mountains. These efforts, with our dedicated team, led us to achieve a ranking in the top 100 restaurants in Canada last year.

The departure of some members of our culinary team in December 2023 led us to seek a new direction to secure the long-term viability of the Willow.

We are delighted to have reached an agreement with Adam Mariani and Brera Catering to operate the Auberge Willow Inn. Brera has been in events management since 2015 and managed over 500 events in 2023 alone. The new arrangement will ensure that the Willow will continue to be a premier venue for celebrations, weddings, and other gatherings. Brera will assume management of all operations before the beginning of the 2024 spring season.

The Willow has a 200-year history. It has thrived in the face of many challenges and will continue to, long into the future. We are proud to be among the privileged custodians of this venerable institution.”
