This was a great find, and one we'll be sure to return to. Perfect setting w/ gorgeous view of Sommes Sound, on very quiet street w/ no road noise, and we are very particular about road noise. Inn keeper, Suzy, was a Jill-of-All-Trades: she was charming, warm, friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable about the area w/ all of her guest, put... More

Just got back from a perfect 3 night visit to the Birches where you are treated like family the moment you arrive by Susie. Beautiful setting with wonderful views of the water. Great location to enjoy Acadia National Park and the surrounding areas avoiding the more crowded and touristy Bar Harbor. Susie will help set up your days itinerary and... More

My lovely wife and I spent 3 nights at the Birches during the 2nd week of August. Susie, the owner/host couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. From providing restaurant suggestions, to having foam pillows waiting in room for us per our reservation, to providing gluten free breakfast options for my wife, Susie was spot on! Her attention to... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Birches in late June this year. It's quiet location near Southwest Harbor was an easy 10-15 minute drive to Acadia National park loop (which has fantastic road biking, not to mention amazing scenery), and Bar Harbor. Our ocean view room was clean, spacious, and tastefully yet simply decorated, without a... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Birches for four nights. Suzie and Mike went out of their way to make us feel right at home. Everything was perfect from the gourmet breakfasts, to the amazing views of the garden and waterfront from the property, and like so many other reviews stated, all the helpful suggestions and tips of...

The Birches is a magical place tucked in the quite side of the island. The home is lovely, the views spectacular and the breakfast down right unbeatable. I venture to say you can't buy a better meal on the island. Susi and Mike make you feel like family. We did not want to leave! We hope to make it back... More

My husband and I got married at the Birches last fall. Susi went above and beyond coordinating and accommodating our large wedding ceremony. The location breath taking with an ocean and island view in front of you and her beautiful estate behind you. She provided wonderful rooms for my bridesmaids and I to get ready in and as it was...

One of the great B&B's we have stayed at. Nice quiet place to stay. Great food and very knowledgeable of the area. Suzi is like your own Tour Coordinator. We really liked the Southwest Harbor area to stay at ....away from all the people. Great restaurants in the area-- and Suzi even made reservations for us! Would definitely stay there... More

The Birches is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in. The place is well maintained, clean and has beautiful surroundings. We felt welcomed and at home as soon as we entered the place.

The Birches is the B&B that you imagine every time you think of a B&B. It's tucked down a quite road yet easy to get to; it's surrounded by woods but has a lovely unobstructed view of the water; it's architecturally a beautiful building inside and out; and upon arrival you are greeted with such warmth that it is like...
