We ended up at the Birch Island resort after we had been sent to Westview B & B outside of Little Current where we were told that we had a room for the night and then when we got there they told us they had a better offer. So without a place to stay for the night we headed to the Tourist office who found us a cabin at Birch Island. It was a relief to find somewhere but we had no idea we were heading to a little island paradise. We had a comfortable bed to sleep in and two deck chairs to sit in and watch the sun go down. The tiny cabin also housed a small fridge so that you can keep your wine and beer cold. There are no cooking facilities in the cabin so you have to eat at the main lodge. This is not great for vegetarians but the owner did her best. She created a special dish for us that worked out fine. It is a very relaxing place to spend a few days and they had a canoe for us to use. This was extra so be sure to find out the charges ahead of time. The place would be an excellent place to go to for a retreat or even to write your bestseller. It is peaceful, there is little to do but relax and/or go fishing. The view from our cabin was great. We understood that the fishing was excellent. We were very well treated and we enjoyed our stay a great deal.
I would definitely go back again.
