“Traditional, rustic getaway is a charmer”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

I just spent a great weekend at Birch Cliff Lodge with a motorcycle sport-touring group, and I would highly recommend this spot for similar group events, a family vacation or a weekend getaway. Not only were the lodge and grounds superbly maintained, but Birch Cliff proved to be an ideal base from which to explore beautiful North Hastings, Renfrew and Haliburton.

The staff were extremely friendly and accomodating (they even gave us rags to clean our bikes), and the home-cooked meal they catered for us was tasty and satisfying. They also did a few extra little things for me, which showed genuine hospitality that went beyond professionalism.

Although the lodge and cottages are 1930's vintage (as they advertise), they are well kept, clean and nicely equipped. The screened porches offer a lot of extra living space. It was nice to have WiFi and a cell phone booster on site, although their performance was not particularly fast. Some might bemoan the lack of a TV, but I never noticed because the daily activities and spectacular sunsets were captivating enough for me.

All in all Birch Cliff Lodge was a great find, and I would definitely go back and spend more time there.

Lovely, clean and well-equipped cottages. Ideal for a family vacation. We were a family of 9 including 5 adults and 4 children aged 5 to 9, three generations. We had a wonderful holiday. Staff were very attentive and courteous and we felt very welcome, very at home. Lots of things to do, or if you want to just relax with a book, this is the ideal spot. Sunsets defy description! Highly recommend!
