My husband and I stayed there on our honeymoon this past weekend. When we pulled in we were excited by the beautiful view and like the rustic feeling. We checked in and the hostess was a very nice woman. However, our feelings started to change when we went upstairs. We stayed in the room right above the bar and quickly... More

The Birches has several options on lodging. We have one cabin called " Honeymoon" which is directly on the water with great views. The lodge rooms are upstairs in the Main Lodge where there is a restaurant and lounge for guests. We inform Lodge guests that the rooms are over the lounge. The rooms are neat and clean.

We rented 'Catch a Falling Star' cabin and it was perfect for a romantic getaway. It is a 1 bedroom, 1 floor cabin with a nice fireplace, propane heater in the bedroom and a... More

We arrived with the temperatures below zero outside but our private cottage was all warm and cozy inside. Had a wonderful dinner in the resort's rustic and beautiful dining room, (the haddock and beef medallions were devious). The entire staff from check in, to food servers and bartenders was all exceptional. The view from the cabin, right on the lake... More

My wife and I rented a two bedroom cabin with another couple. We arrived 2/13/15 and left 2/15/15. We paid $279. The cabins are very rustic so don't expect any luxuries or frills. The food in the restaurant is excellent, a little pricey but very good. They have a bar but be prepared for the price of drinks. For a... More

Once again, The Birches has fulfilled my getaway requirements. Tranquility, scenery, good food,quaint accommodations and good people. Can't wait to go back. Autumn foliage should be awesome.
