This was my fifth year at Birch Bend with my dog and we stayed in the Hideway. Perfect for a senior. The new owners have done a number of great upgrades and were most welcoming and accommodating. The Pot Luck dinner is always fun for me and the food wonderful. The 2 hour drive for me is easy as well...

Wonderful week at Birch Bend Resort with two small children (aged 4 and 5). The family that runs the place couldn't be nicer and more welcoming. Very clean cabins.

As students and a young couple, it is difficult to find an affordable and enjoyable getaway however BirchBend was the perfect find. We stayed in the smallest cottage (the Hideaway) and although small for a party larger than two, for the both of us it was just the perfect size. It came with a bbq, loaded kitchen, tv, goodt wifi,...

Wonderful quiet & picturesque location. Great fun jumping off the dock, swimming, fishing, roasting marshmallows. Comfy cottage, very clean. Run by a lovely family who did all they could to help us enjoy our stay. Kids did not went to leave. Highly recommend for a family getaway. Many thanks to Kent, Diane & Nigel.
