My husband and I were looking for a safe vacation get away that would allow us to relax and had a variety of services. Silver Birches hit all the fight notes and then some. We were there for a week in July in a Premium Deluxe King Room. The slightly extra expense was well worth it. We had a porch overlooking the lake and were just down from the pool. They have live entertainment out by the lake on the weekend. There are two restaurants on site and we enjoyed all the meals there. You can eat outside, inside or take it to go. Each night, they light the firepits and it is so relaxing to sit out and watch the world go by. If you like water sports, there is a pool and a lake. Bring an inflatable and float away. There are also kayaks and other watercraft available for use. Re: COVID safety. They seem to take it very seriously. Guests consistently masked up when in close areas. Chairs were spaced apart. All food servers had masks and also used them consistently. I admit to COVID paranoia but neither of us felt any concern while there. In summary, we had a wonderful vacation, enjoyed someone else's cooking and left relaxed. I highly recommend staying there.

A wonderful getaway for 4 days. The short review, it’s a great lake front resort and I highly recommend it. I give it 5 stars for a lake front resort. No, it’s the fanciest place, but it’s the Lake Life. It’s not supposed to be fancy; it’s supposed to be laid back and relaxing. Read below if you want details. We booked a Standard Double Room in the Lakeshore building. It was just the amount of room for us. We booked for two adults and our teenage son, but he decided to stay home (his loss) so it was just us two. A nice clean, updated room with two double beds. Plenty of storage and closet space. An updated bathroom also. There was a hairdryer, iron and board, Keurig Coffee maker and a small refrigerator/freezer. The room had a small semi private patio with two Adirondack chairs and views of the lake. The room had a very slight musty smell, but again, you are at the lake, no big deal for us. Check in was easy. We were able to arrive early to enjoy the amenities. The pool temperature was great for the heatwave we were having. Plenty of lounge chairs, even placed apart to keep socially distant to others. Plenty of Adirondack chairs and tables around the pool also. The Standup paddleboards, kayaks and canoes were all included with the price of the room which had the Resort Fee built right in. The watersports/rec center guys worked super hard every day carrying the boards up from the lake and cleaning every board and paddle between guest use. At sunset, they opened champagne for a champagne toast. It wasn’t really super organized (one night we asked for it and one night they just came around to the fire pits with filled cups), but it was still a nice perk and I’m not complaining. The resort offers shuttle service between its two sister resorts in Hawley also. There were a lot of activities included that you could do. Wine tastings, cocktail tastings, canal walks, history walks, etc. But to be honest, we were really just enjoying the views of the lake and hanging around in swimsuits so we didn’t do many other activities. But if you wanted to enjoy them, they were included in your room price. There is plenty of parking, but it might not be exactly close to your room, but it wasn’t too far that you couldn’t unload your bags, coolers, etc. We actually parked and didn’t even leave the resort at all. Like I said, it is a very relaxing laid back vacation. They give you vouchers for breakfast for 2 at the Dock. It is a family style breakfast with scrambled eggs, home fries, bacon, French toast, fresh fruit coffee and juice. All you need to do is leave a gratuity. The breakfast was delicious and huge! We packed a cooler with lunchmeats and snacks for our room to make sandwiches but you can eat at the Dock for lunch also if you choose. Tuesdays they have a Picnic to Go on the lawn. We couldn’t believe the complimentary food they gave you. They grilled hot dogs and burgers, and the burgers weren’t wimpy little frozen patties, they were huge. They gave you pre-packaged cole slaw and potato salad and had ice cold cups of water ready to go. We took ours to the pool and enjoyed it there. Then they came around announcing there was ice cream also for everyone. We ate dinner at the Dock each night. If you show your room key you receive 10% off food. I am sure there are plenty of good restaurants in the area but we loved just walking up to the onsite restaurant for a quick delicious meal and not having to get all dressed up and drive somewhere. I left a separate review for the Dock as well. It was very good. Each night the fire pits were lit for a few hours and people sat around them watching the sunset. We would find 2 chairs in the distance and have a quiet few hours watching the sunsets, which were gorgeous. Check out was simple too, just drop your keys in the box at the front desk and you can stay longer and use the amenities after you check out. As far as COVID concerns, people were very good about wearing masks in common areas and keeping their distance. We do not have a boat nor did we rent a boat or slip so I have no information on that. Hope my review helps some of you decide on your vacation plans. Feel free to reach out with questions. I’m planning next summer’s trip there as I write this review.

Silver Birches resort is a wonderful place for families! We booked via the website with no problems. I was concerned about cancellations policies with Covid-19 but the management assured me I could cancel up to the day before with no penalty. Which was comforting in these times. We came here as a family of four with two children 7 and 5. We stayed in the bunkhouse B-23 which is a bottom unit. The bunkhouse has 4, 2 bedroom units and is a little building next to the one family cottage. When we checked in I did find that the carpet could have been vacuumed better but it didn’t damper my spirits. The resort has a gorgeous view of the lake! My boys wanted to continually use kayaks, paddleboards and even the canoe. I felt bad for the kid working the recreation department, but he was always so friendly and said he didn’t mind dragging the stuff in and out of the water. He/ they are definitely an asset to your business. We used our free vouchers every morning for breakfast at the dock. Breakfast was HUGE portions and was delicious got us off to a great start every day. (See my dock on wallenpaupack review for info regarding dinner at the restaurant) One of the best parts of vacation was being able to sit back in the Adirondack chairs that are all over the property and let the kids run around and be kids. It did help they found two other kids the same ages to play with. The cleaning staff seemed to be young local kids but all were friendly when passing outside. For those worried about Covid I will be honest the outdoor bar area had a “masks must be worn” but nobody is enforcing it at least the whole week we were there. My only negative visually is the pool area. They used old football field turf (I heard rumors it’s from Giants stadium??) and covered the area around the pool. It looks cheesy and outdated. I definitely think there has to make it more visually appealing. All in all we had a great vacation. I haven’t relaxed like that in a long time. We ended up booking for a week next year and can’t wait to go back!

First getaway in awhile and so glad this is where we ended up! Silver Birches has an old time charm and history with new modern rooms and amenities! Days spent relaxing by pool (with bar) and lake with activities like free kayaks, paddle boards, and canoe. Nights spent watching beautiful lake sunsets and fire pits in Adirondack chairs. “The Dock” which is next door and the resorts restaurant provides free breakfast and great options for lunch and dinner. Nights spent watching sunsets and having “The Dock” takeout during Covid was a very nice change from takeout at home (restaurant was also open for table seating). Excellent customer service and friendly staff... room extremely clean upon check in.

Perfect flashback for my Mom! She spent many hours as a teen at Lake. Sherri made sure we had everything we needed and helped us figure out Mom’s old hangout🏊🏻‍♀️So peaceful/beautiful White Birches was perfect to relax and we felt safe with Covid restrictions! Cannot wait to return! She was on a Postcard from the ‘50s! Best last minute trip ever! Thanks Sherri
