Birch Forest Lodge is a great "Up North" experience. The cabins are in excellent shape, the grounds well tended, the beach amazing, the sunsets spectacular and fishing awesome. Adam and Kasey are very gracious and attentive hosts, they made our stay very comfortable. Adam was very knowledgeable about the lake and the fishing hot spots (and keen on sharing). The... More

If you have always wanted a home on a beautiful lake but don't want the hassle of ownership, this is the place. Beautiful, perfectly kept, renovated resort with old-world feel. Cabins have all new interiors, right on the lake. Lodge is just like the ones we visited as kids. Ping pong, pool, candy and trinkets for the kids, big deck... More

The Birch Forest Lodge and Adam and Kasey were absolutely wonderful. Everything from the location to the clean tidy cabins. The beach and the play area are perfect for young children and fishing off the dock for them was great. Pelican Lake is a beautiful lake with great fishing if out in the boat. Adam and Kasey even had a... More

We traveled here for a family vacation with friends. It was everything we expected and more. The resort owners were very helpful and friendly. The fishing was awesome and the beach area was perfect for the kids to swim. We booked already for next year! We can't wait to go back. Thanks to the Van Tassell family for the hospitality!

First time to Minnesota, allowed us a short stay. Owners are awesome and took great care of us, treated us like we were the only people there. Rented a motor boat, kayaked, borrowed fishing gear, played corn hole, fished off the dock, made smores, watched herons/pelicans 20 feet from our cabin, threw horseshoes and enjoyed the small beach!! Wished we... More

We were here for a week and had a great time! Weather was warm and sunny and the lake was fabulous. On Monday night Adam grilled burgers and hotdogs for everyone and we got to know our fellow vacationers. A great way to start the week! Mother Nature was very snarky on Wednesday night with a resulting power outage that... More

Stayed at Birch Forest Lodge in June 2016. We are a group ranging in age from kids to 84 years old and everyone had a great time. The cabins and boats are nice and Adam and Kacey are great hosts. Can't beat Pelican Lake for vacation.

Spent a few days at one of the nicest lakes we've been to. Randomly picked Birch Forest from a list on the Internet and couldn't have been luckier. Clean cabins, warm shallow swimming beach, all cabin cookout night, and gorgeous views. Paddle boards, kayaks, canoes and fishing spots equals very happy kids. Kasey and Adam were marvelous hosts, making the... More

Our annual fishing group enjoyed another fine experience at the Birch Forrest Lodge. The equipment, facilities, and service were top notch. Fishing was also again super on Pelican Lake. A great week and we're already booked for next year!
