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

This was our third week long visit at the Birches. The large rooms are beautifully decorated, very comfortable and very clean with large bathroom. Delicious Five Star fine dinning. Breakfast, which is included, very satisfying. Owners Barb and Larry are excellent hosts who go the extra mile. Staff is wonderful. The Inn is outstanding, beautiful views, manicured landscaping and located... 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

If you drive a clean car, be aware that the driveway and parking lot are not paved and expect mud all over the place when it rains. Beautiful room (but a very noisey place regarding traffic as The Birches is located right on the main road.) BTW - second floor rooms are only accessible by a very large staircase- no... More

Many thanks to Barb and Larry for creating what we feel is the best place to stay in the Maritimes. The staff, Amy and Alisha (who makes the best cappuccino in the world) go out of their way to make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. We ate in the dining room twice and the... More

We recently stayed 2 nights in the McPherson Suite and from the moment we walked in we were treated royally. The Inn is lovely, the huge suite was sumptuous with a comfy bed, tons of pillows, big TV with satellite and balcony with chairs. Breakfast was nice, fruit, yogurt, cereal, homemade muffins, scrambled eggs and lots bread/bagels to toast. I... More

My husband surprised me with a visit to the Birches at Ben Eoin. Our hosts Barb and Larry were kind, genuine and attentive to our needs. The inn is located on the Bras D'or lakes in Cape Breton. Our room was perfect, the service and friendliness even better. Don't forget to golf The Lakes as well. I would highly recommend... More
