I took a long awaited trip to BH with my son's best friend Peach late last month; we stayed 5 nights here and man what a bonus it was for our trip. The place is beautiful, well maintained and Suzi and Mike are extremely knowledgeable and most accommodating. Why would any one consider staying anywhere else is a wonder to me! Agreed, totally, that Suzi is a wealth of knowledge and she knows everybody to get you the best experience in any list of activities that you might consider. We were witness to her managing a wedding on our weekend and she masterfully executed a wonderful and dry wedding experience for all thanks to her savvy weather insights and computer know-how in being able to watch some quickly moving squalls that could have caused major wedding mayhem. Her caretaker Mike is also a unique character and makes enjoying the to-die-for breakfasts all the better with his insights, stories and general know how. We became good friends with both Suzi and Mike and I find myself thinking often about our fabulous trip to The Birches B&B and my thoughts always return to a mental image of the two of them sitting with us in the breakfast room or greeting us in the kitchen at night after returning from a long day in the park. One just doesn't have such a wonderful experience without folks like this taking you in. By the way, the lobster omelette was totally gourmet and yummy, but the bacon was the talk of a good part of our first day's hike....bacon cooked with such evenness and crispiness just doesn't happen like this. The location in this part of BH is quiet and more upscale but still has great access to the airport, Acadia NP and other important spots and activities. I am headed back asap with the rest of the family and a few others for sure. In addition to the main house, Suzi has a separate house on the property that sleeps up to 12 with kitchen, multiple bedrooms and living areas and fireplace...I have my eye on this place for round two!
