I arrived on Sunday, October 4th, 2014, and left on Thursday. It's my first time staying here and I was not disappointed. Rick is the nicest person! Extremely helpful and willing to help and/or answer any questions. The room was clean, the towels were soft and the best part is the windows open with screens to let the fresh air... More

But I still give the Birchwood 5 stars, because without costing a fortune, you get a clean and comfortable room, good beds and pillows for a great night's sleep. We had a small refrigerator/freezer in the room, microwave, coffee maker,stove, essentially a kitchenette. We travel after the "season", so it is quiet. Rick, the owner, is a wealth of information...

Comfortable, clean, friendly, family owned motel. Outdoor pool is pristine and solar heated. The owner is a wealth of island information. The room was clean and comfortable with a microwave, mini fridge, coffee pot, and cable tv. Continental breakfast was available, although we did not partake of it. The motel is situated on Main Street with access to a 700... More

We stayed for one night at the Birchwood this week, and would recommend it. It's a traditional motel - basic, but clean and comfortable. The owners and staff take the place up a level - very friendly and welcoming, and nice to chat to. The owner, Rick, even gave us his cellphone number to call if we got lost on... More

We stayed at the Birchwood for the Labor Day weekend and had an amazing time. Motel managers are very helpful,knowledgeable and polite. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. We even got a discount since we booked over the phone, rates were $10 /night cheaper than online. If you are looking for a comfortable stay without the frills of a... More

The owners are super friendly and kind. You must remember that this is a motel on an island. I have looked at the reviews from others and there are comments left and right about a musty/mildew smell. It does have that smell however, every one of the older motels on the island do. They all sit on very little to... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a long weekend in August and it was exactly what we needed. No frills just a place to crash after a long day at the beach or kayaking. Fishing off the pier was nice. The rooms were clean and the owners are very nice. When checking out they asked if we were leaving... More

Nothing spectacular about this motel, but it's classic 50s style, friendly owners, and great location make up for the lack of frills. The dock across the road is nice for fishing. Rooms are dated but comfortable. We have gotten the efficiency the two times we've been here, and it has been sufficient.
