Stayed at the Birches last week. From the moment we walked through the door, we were treated to the best hospitality Cape Breton has to offer!
We were guided to our room complete with canopy king size bed, fireplace and jet tub. We were served drinks on our balcony in the brilliant sunshine. Our meal at Malcolm's was absolutely terrific. My husband had the scallop appetizer and I had the lobster bisque, both of which are highly recommended. Our main course was the lamb (ordered by both of us), perfectly seasoned and succulent with the blueberry reduction. Dessert consisted of the ice cream cone...handmade ice cream with pralines dipped in white chocolate with berry coulis. Mmmmm. Fantastic. The service was superb.
Did I mention that there were dozens of hummingbirds flitting about the many feeders outside the windows of the restaurant?
We were visited by owner Barbara who kept checking in for the remainder of our stay and who called us by name for the rest of our visit.
Great bed. Quiet night. Superb and sincere hospitality. Simply lovely.
We were taking advantage of the golf package and so our cart was ready and waiting beside our car the following morning, complete with two bottles of ice water, delivered by owner Larry.
All we can say is wow.
We will be back.
Next weekend, in fact.
Thanks for a lovely little escape Barbara and Lawrence and staff!
