Planned on getting married here but due to covid we were unable to get married on our initial date. They had stated if we couldn’t get married on our initial date due to covid we would receive a full refund. We reached out to silver birches numerous times via phone and email and they continually ignored all forms of contact. It was not until we got a lawyer involved did they respond and that was after two attempts by our lawyer and finally suit being filed. We thankfully received a refund because the law was on our side. This “business” is extremely UNPROFESSIONAL and non empathetic. To completely ignore people who have paid thousands of dollars for a wedding that got canceled due to a worldwide pandemic is absolutely pathetic. Do not support these crooks.

We love this resort! We always have fun going- it’s low key and everyone is nice. This time we went we saw a lot of trash on the grounds and some employees were just sitting around instead of up keeping the grounds. The pool is also in need of some serious upkeeping/remodeling. It doesn’t cost much to have new nice furniture around the pool and to fix the fence. These little things would make the resort shine like it should. Hoping to stay there again- we love the shuttle to the ledge and Settlers Inn- the driver Jerry was awesome!

The property overall is nice. However, their website indicates a complete renovation of sleeping rooms and shows a renovated room but they are not all renovated. We were put in two different rooms and neither had been renovated. I was absolutely disappointed. The first room #9 is from 1975. The second room Bunk House 25 was not much better. Looks like maybe they did some painting but not much else. VERY disappointed for $275 / night. Website is misleading. Rose at Registration did her very best to accommodate but with no availability, she was not able to get us what we drove 12 hours to get. Very disappointed in our accommodations. Overall, the place needs some TLC. Upon arrival and heading to the beach area, there were old champagne glasses, masks, water bottles, and cigarette butts from the previous night. There were also a bunch of cigarette butts around the outdoor fireplace from the night before. This stuff needs to get cleaned up every single day. Gross !!! Get someone to walk the grounds and pick up. Had dinner at the DOCK one night and enjoyed a fantastic penne pasta with lobster and shrimp with tomatoes that was FANTASTIC !!! My husband went for breakfast (free) two days in a row and he said both days were terrible. Eggs were cold, toast was cold - this is just unacceptable. If we had paid $13.95 / day I would have blown my top. Who wants cold food !!!! Unacceptable. To note, after Labor Day, there are no boat rides available and many places are shut down. Very disappointing because the weather was still fantastic. Such a shame. Hats off to the staff. They were all very nice. The bartender at the pool, the waitresses at The Dock, the Registration ladies - all very nice.

My family and I spent 2 nights in the bunkhouse at Silver Birches. Check in was easy. We were greeted by 2 ladies and given our welcome packet with a calendar of activities, restaurant information and vouchers for breakfast. The bunkhouse room is spacious and was perfect for our family of 4. When you enter, there is a room with a queen bed, table with 4 chairs, a mini refrigerator, microwave and keurig. Cups, k-cups, sugar and mini creamers provided. To get to the second bedroom you walk through the sink area. To your right is the bathroom with a toilet and shower/tub. The second bedroom is spacious with a twin over full bunk bed. There is a TV in both bedrooms with cable. We stayed on the first floor of the bunkhouse and could hear the kids upstairs running around. On the porch were comfortable adirondack chairs. We enjoyed sitting on them and enjoying the beautiful view of the lake. We enjoyed complimentary paddle boarding and kayaking while there. We were also pleasantly surprised to find that there was a complimentary lunch on the 2nd day of our stay. Hamburgers, hotdogs and different salads were served, along with water and a choice of iced teas. The grounds are beautiful with a gorgeous view of the lake. Adirondack chairs are located throughout the property. My kids enjoyed playing with the large connect four set and Jenga blocks. They also spent hours on the beach building rock towers and skipping stones. I would suggest having a good shoe for walking on the rocks. It can be tough in flip flops. Maybe crocs would have been better? There are also several fire pits on property. When we asked for firewood at the main desk, we were given a lighter and sent back out to look for the gentleman who would get us wood but were unable to find him. When we went back, the staff at the front desk was unable to help us locate him. I would probably bring my own wood next time. Service for take out meals was slow. I would recommend calling ahead instead of showing up, ordering and waiting for your meal. Overall this was a very nice trip for my family. I would have liked to give 4 1/2 stars but this was not an option.

We are on our way home from three wonderful nights at this large, private home owned by Silver Birches. We were 10 people total: 6 adults and 4 teenagers ranging 13-16 years old. This house has so much space! We weren’t on top of each other at all and the lower level entertainment room was fantastic! We utilized the endless pool, the outdoor fire pit and grill. The kitchen had pretty much everything we needed to cook our meals. We also were able to kayak and paddle board for free at the main resort (only 5 minutes away) which we didn’t know about in advance and was a nice surprise. We also received two daily breakfast vouchers at the nearby Dock restaurant so for the last day we were there we used them all up and got take out breakfast. Only things would suggest is a larger grill. It was pretty small for the size of the house. We managed fine though. Highly recommend staying here!!
