What a shame. The Birches has a fabulous location on the lake and it could be great. The cabins really need updating -- particularly the bathrooms. The showerhead was taped to the pipe but it still leaked. We could only get hot water sporadically. The porch was the best part of the whole experience. For this price they should put some money into them before they unravel completely. The other issue is the cabins are VERY close together -- maybe 20 feet at most. You can hear EVERYTHING your neighbors are doing. Add to that my 9 year old daughter had two leaches when she came out of the swimming area. I've since read that is very common on lakes in the northeast but yuck!
