My husband and I stayed a weekend in the Laurelwood cottage and thought is was lovely. The location is right across the street from the beach where you can walk in either direction and enjoy the beautiful sunset. The cottage was cute, very clean and had everything you would need. We loved our stay and would return again without question.

My wife and I came and stayed in the the laurelwood cottage for two nights and we were pleasantly surprised.. the place cabin was well kept and very quiet for for much needed time alone. we were here for 3 nights and other than a little short on the parking( place was a bit busy) we have nothing but good things to say. the service was very good!

First impression - this isn't what it looks like online!
We were greeted by the 'manager' - and wondered if our arrival had awoken him.
The little one bedroom cottage was clean, however 'what were a pair of mens dress shoes and socks doing in the drawer with the frying pans??!' is it too late to get a refund?
The website hadn't noted the amenities, however this place was missing the fireplace or reasonable facsimile and a nice area rug to warm the place up. We decided to assume it was due to sand that would be brought in from the beach in the summer ... Not really the rainy, fall romantic space we had hoped for.

I stayed here for three nights, and it was a great place. Room was comfortable, clean, and quiet, with a home-like atmosphere. Host was friendly and welcoming. Would stay here again.

My wife and I stayed in the Eagles Roost Ocean view suite. We throughly enjoyed everything about our stay. The jacuzzi was great, the massage chair was very good after a long walk along the beach, we felt very refreshed after our stay. The staff was great and the "Roost" was very well cared for and decorated. We will be back!

The room was clean, comfortable and well stocked with a perfect little deck for relaxing outside. It's only a short walk to the beautiful bay beach and what seems like an endless coastline to explore. The proprietor was pleasant and available. This is a wonderful value for some really nice rooms and cabins. If you're looking to visit this area, don't hesitate to book with Birch Bay. They're Wonderful!

Four of us go down to Birch Bay twice a year to do a girls getaway. My family owns two cottages in the area so normally we have one of those to use but both were booked. I panicked at first because in 20 years of going to Birch Bay I have never had to find accommodations. I found The Birch Bay Get Away on Craigslist and gave the property manager a call. He was very easy to deal with and gave us a great deal on the cabin we saw on the internet. He also sent us pictures and additional information. After realizing that there was going to be four women staying in the cabin he upgraded us to the Birchwood Cottage and still gave us a great rate. We were so pleasantly surprised to arrive on Friday night after a long drive to a cute, cozy, clean cottage that fit all of us perfectly. The kitchen was fully stocked with all things necessary to cook and there were some wonderful teas supplied on the counter. The property manager was quick to let us know that he was available anytime if we were short on anything and he always answered the phone when we gave him a call. The beds were super comfy and the flat screen TV with satellite cable was a bonus. We had a little problem with the bathroom sink and it was fixed within an hour of calling. The towels and linens were all clean and the whole cottage was tidy.
I have read a couple of the other reviews on this site and I have to say that none of the negative comments I read were anything like the great experience we had. The gardens are full of kitchy little decorations that add to the quaintness of the property and if anyone has spent any time in Birch Bay they will know that it's all about the Garden Trolls!! haha...we walked around the property with the caretaker who was an older gentleman that takes care of the landscaping and gardens and he was delightful. We had a tour of the smaller cabins and they were all as neat and cozy as ours was. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a cozy, inexpensive getaway. If you are looking for the Sheraton or Hilton, do not go here...this is about little cabins that are cute, cozy and have lots of nic nacs and GREAT SERVICE.

Room Tip: Birchwood Cottage is the largest cottage. Has three bedrooms, two with queen beds, one with bunk be...
