“A wonderful relaxing retreat.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2008

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.

I've gone to Birch Island Lodge many years. It is a great place to bring your family. One year I brought just my son and it was a great way to spend some quality time together. Alan and Ingrid are super hosts that will do everything in their power to make your stay enjoyable. The wildlife is geat to wake up to. The fishing is good the meals are better and the atmosphere is tops.

I have been going to this Lodge for 25 years. It has not changed much during that time which is refreshing to me. In fact, my father, 13 year old son and I still fish with the same guide (Bullie) that we fished with back in the early 80's. The owners, Alan & Ingrid, are very hands on and do everything to make all their guests happy. While guests are out fishing all day, they are consistantly working on improvements. Accomodations consist of numerous cabins. They are equipped with refrigerators, a stand up shower in each bathroom and comfortable twin beds. They do not have air conditioning so if the forcast is hot, it is advisable to bring a small fan. All meals are included in the price. Made to order breakfast and scheduled dinner are served in the main Lodge. All guests spend the day fishing so lunch is on the water. Guides can fix the shore lunch specialty of the morning's catch fried over an open fire with potatoes and beans or guests can make their own sandwiches for lunch. There is a sandwich making bar set up every morning for those who want to take that route. This is a woderful place to take a son on a vacation with his father or grandfather and the price is right too. You can find them on the web at www.birchislandlodge.com
