This was our first time up in Sister's Bay. We did wine tasting along the way to Sister's Bay with a few couples. When we got to Birchwood Lodge, we found large hotel rooms with a jacuzzi in our room. The TV's were a bit high for us when my wife and I were in the hot tub. The beds... More

We made a last minute decision to go to Door County and were fortunate to find an opening at the Birchwood Lodge. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom Village Homes, which was roomy, well accommodated, and easy in and easy out. Will consider staying here again. My only suggestion would be related to the check in and check... More

My husband and I stayed at the Birchwood September 23 & 24. We were first time guests and were not disappointed. The property sits quietly on a hill by itself within walking distance to downtown and excellent restaurants. This is a newer property beautifully furnished and very clean. Our premier suite was large, freshly & tastefully decorated. The suite was... More

My husband and I stayed in a premier suite. We were impressed by the spacious and clean room; the pool, sauna and whirlpool; and the responsiveness of the staff. We even played a few games of tennis.

We are here right now and enjoying our second and last night in one of the village homes. The thought of leaving this gem of a place leaves me sad. I want to stay forever!

Dear Marjorie, Thank you for staying at the Birchwood Lodge. What a way to enjoy your weekend!! Village homes are by far the most popular units with our guests. Keep in mind that we have also a 4 bedroom Farm House for those weekends with a group of good friends. See you soon! More

My husband and I were able to visit Birchwood Lodge over Labor Day Weekend. The rooms are wonderful and the staff is great! Can't wait to visit again. Good rates and a little breakfast too. Nice water views from our room and many ways to exercise-swim indoors or out, exercise equipment room, and tennis too. Nice walk to down.

This was our first stay at Birchwood. We came for the Door County Century and so we had a ton of luggage and bikes. Our room had a private entry at the back which was absolutely perfect.

birchwood was fairly average. the room was large but poorly laid out. the hot tub was in the center of the room, makes for bad room flow. otherwise it was clean and well maintained. bikes, tennis raquets and other stuff is available at the front desk at no charge. only real complaint, everything shuts down at ten.
