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.

I stayed one night at The Birches. The room was absolutely amazing and very clean. The decor is magnificent. The jetted tub in the bathroom was amazing and big enough for two.... The room was absolutely amazing with a large fireplace and comfortable bed. The restaurant was amazing. The food was out of this world. The manager, Tyler, was very... More

We found the Birches quality of accommodation, the food prepared by chef Kim, the environment and the service (provided by inn keepers Barbara and Larry) exceptional on all counts.Would have no hesitation in returning or recommending to others The Birches as the...

We came here for our honeymoon in late September. It was exactly what we were looking for and we wouldn't change a think about our trip. It was quiet and very comfortable. We stayed in the MacPherson suit every night except our last two, which we spent in the Campbell. Both rooms were perfect. We left the doors open to... More

My sister had her reception at this lovely place. We had the entire establishment, therefore I had the opportunity to see every room and each room is unique, but all rooms are very spacious and lavishly decorated. We stayed in the Campbell suite, the king bed was so comfortable the the pillows were very plush, we had a great sleep.... More

Accommodation does not get better than The Birches. Barb and Larry are wonderful hosts. The rooms are large, quiet and beautifully appointed. The food and service at the restaurant on the premises - Malcolm's - is first class. The chef does not hesitate to adjust recipes for allergies or food preferences. This was our second visit and the quality remained... More

We spent one night here and enjoyed it very much. The hosts were very friendly, as well as our waitress and checkin clerk (who was the same person!). When we arrived we were given a tour of our room on the second floor and shown how to operate the TV and the shower (typical operating mechanisms, nothing difficult here). The... More

We expected a lot from The Birches, and were not disappointed. The owners, Barb and Larry, were friendly and helped make our stay enjoyable. The room was comfortable and nicely appointed. The restaurant, where we had dinner, was very good. There is not much to do in Ben Eion, so having such a nice property for our overnight stop was... More
