The golf day was a bit damp but that did not dampen our spirits! We enjoyed our day! In the evening we dined at Malcolm's - the food was first rate!!!!! the service was perfect - we felt like we were the only diners that our server had. The owners of the inn were very friendly and gracious. They were... More

Also out thanks to the Chef who prepared some excellent fare. The weather was not too good but it made our trip to Loch Lomond... More

The Birches is next to the LAKES golf/ski resort. The hotel is quite unique, it feels like a big mansion. The rooms are big and well decorated. The breakfast was included and it was excellent. The hot tub wasn't working so it was a bit disappointing. I would stay there again , it is very cozy.

When we arrived, they had quiet music playing on the TV via satellite. breakfast was very good with a variety... More

My husband and I spent two pleasant nights at The Birches at Ben Eoin on our way to the Cabot Trail. We chose The McLellan room because it is on the ground floor. Our room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated with one of the owner's (Barb) homemade quilts. Based on prior reviews, we decided to have dinner at The... More

I spent three nights in the MacKenzie room - a corner room with a view of the lake on the upper floor. The room is beautifully decorated and well appointed. It was very much like being a guest in a lovely home with gracious hosts. Barb seems born to the role of innkeeper - she was constantly anticipating my needs... More

From the warm welcome your hostess Barb offers, to the door opening into a wonderfully appointed room, the Birches is a gem tucked into the quiet countryside of Cape Breton. Everything you need is waiting for you in an unexpected way for a country inn.. balcony with a view, thoughtful amenities, bathrobes, wifi (which you should probably have left at... More

The staff was wonderful. The food was amazing. And the view was gorgeous. We will be back! My husband and I booked the romance package for a little get away and it was perfect. The staff was extremely accommodating made us feel welcome as soon as we got there.
