“Quiet anniversary getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

We spent 2 nights at the Birchwood Lodge to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a surprise to me, so I had no clue where we were going to stay. I was pleasantly surprised by the place my husband chose. It met all my expectations for a quiet and hospitable stay in Door County. We stayed in a jacuzzi suite with a king sized bed. It had a small sitting area, kitchenette with fridge (for all the wine!) and microwave, and flat panel tv.
PROS:
-Very clean rooms, decorated with a nautical theme. Housekeeping did a great job and the room was well stocked with towels, toiletries, and information for things to do in the area.
-Comfy room and bed. Although we didn't spend a lot of time in the room, it was perfect for our needs.
-Friendly staff. The lady who checked us in was incredibly nice and helpful, giving us suggestions for meals in local restaurants.
-Nice pool areas (indoor and out). Hot tub was hot, just how I like it. Might be too hot for some though.
-A "green" hotel. Promotes conservation of water and creating less waste.
-Private balcony, perfect for sipping wine and relaxing after a busy day of site seeing.
CONS:
-No elevators, not exactly accessible for everyone. Luckily we didn't have a lot of luggage to haul.
-Exterior could have used some updating.
-Because they are "green" they also didn't water the lawn, so it was pretty burned up from the ridiculous heat this summer.

Room Tip: Our room over-looked the outdoor pool area, which was fine, but not exactly picturesque. I would ask...

Nice place with large rooms and a nice jacuzzi. Not a lot to do there, but plenty if you drive to Fish Creek. It would be nice to have a restaurant, but there is a cute little kitchen are there. Nice for couples.

Very nice lodge, 7 yrs.old.a rustic feeling with a large group; of wide stairs that go down to the main lobby which has a fireplace and 2 couches. We stayed in the lodge with a king bed,which has a small wall that divides the bed from the couch and kitchenette which has a microwave,small refrigerator,sink, dishes and silverware.
They do have a complimentary cold breakfast with cereals,oatmeal,packaged sweet rolls, bagels hot water, coffee and package cocoa
The TV is up high near the ceiling where you can watch it from the couch or bed area, which is handy, a fireplace is below the TV.the other choice is a one bedroom in the lodge also. they have a nice fitness area with a few machines and a two tread mills, and bikes
.there is a outdoor and indoor pool with a large whirpool, sauna and shower.
.I would definitely stay here again, very clean and staff very nice
.It is right in Sister Bay but you still need a car to get to town.

Room Tip: the lodge is built on a hill so if you want to be on ground level ask for a room in the back of the...

It was okay but if I were to go to Sister Bay again I would certainly try someplace else. There was plenty of room, mattresses were okay and it is conveniently located to town, which is good because they do not have a bar or restaurant. We had a nice patio to sit out on but there were only two chairs and it was a two bedroom unit. Major complaint is that the room was very musty. It looked clean but it didn't smell clean. It wasn't unbearable but for $200/night c'mon.

Room Tip: Room 108 is good for a family or two couples

My husband and I returned for another stay. We stay at the Birchwood Lodge at least once a year. The suites are great. Love the fireplace and jet tub. Very relaxing. Staff is very friendly and accomodating. The resort is very clean - beds are good. Continental breakfast is a bit slim, but not bad. At least they have one. There are so many great places to eat and visit in the area. Just experiencing the natural beauty of the area is enough! We feel at home here.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. We were on the 2nd floor this time, which is actually ground level in the...

We stayed here last minute because they had rooms available
I thought it was a little pricey, but the location was excellent, and we wanted to be able to walk to dinner
Our room was clean, and decorated nicely... Very updated. It was a suite, which we didn't need, but very nice
Perfect for what we needed

My girlfriend and I were looking for a last minute vacation in door county and found this one of the few places that had a room available. I was very pleased with the cleanliness and size of the room, great service from the staff. It's a short walk to downtown sister bay, very convenient. Others have said the tv is up high, true. It's really a non issue though, you shouldn't be coming up to door county and worrying about watching tv anyway. Awesome stay, would definitely do it again
