Where to start? This place was booked for us as a gift from a relative, otherwise I would have demanded my money back & gone elsewhere. Our initial contact was with the "caretaker", who left a lot to be desired. We were in the middle unit of the 3 unit cabins. To one side of us was clearly a live... More

I have to agree with some of the other reviews. It was not what we expected. From the pictures it looks very nice but it is very worn out. We were looking for a place that could sleep 6 so Birchwood, cottage 1 fit the bill. There was a very friendly cat that came in to see us. However, the... More

This was our second annual trip to birch bay getaway. The cabins are rustic and well worn but not so bad that it detoured us from booking here a second time. This year however, they seem to have rented a cabin monthly and the tenants have junk all over the deck, friends coming through with blaring music and driving too... More

I have read different reviews for this place, and I think that it really does depend on what unit you stay in, as to how nice it is. We had booked the Grouse cottage, and when we got there, we were told that we were being upgraded and ended up in Loons Common. Sure didn't feel like an upgrade, but... More

We come to Birch Bay on business and pleasure. We love it here! The cottages are quaint and feels like our West coast home. David is very accommodating and the price is very affordable. The beds are cozy and the cottages have all the comforts of home.

On line photos show better than what we found. After our initial reserved thoughts, we found a wonderful and comfortable cottage. We were looking for a place like this to just stop and relax. We've been very busy and just wanted to get away. The beach was clean and peaceful. We are looking to go back again to this little... More

My partner and I discovered this place a few years back after being discouraged with having to pay almost 3 times the amount you pay at Birch Bay Get A Way. The beach trip we take rarely give you the opportunity to actually see the water or be near it and here you have both opportunities at a deal. I... More

My girl-friend and I were looking for someplace to celebrate our anniversary. Found this place on Google Maps and checked it out. It is right on the waterfront. Easy walk or bike ride to restaurants and diners. From the living room you can see the entire bay, watch the birds, kayakers, storm watching. They have 3 ocean view condos, we... More
