I loved stay here. The couple that own the facility are on site and very welcoming. The restaurant had some of the best desserts I've had in my life! I loved the room if you need directions Barbara will help get you where you need to be ! It has wifi too !

I was here for a family friend's wedding. This inn is very close to Ben Eoin yacht club and it's 3.5 hours drive from downtown Halifax. I was so pleasantly surprised to find a five star hotel in the middle of nowhere. The rooms are impeccably designed, new and clean furnishing and yet not losing its classic touch. Soft, soothing...

We had a wonderful stay in the MacPherson suite! Very spacious and comfortable, impeccably clean and dinner at Malcolm's was delicious! The staff were very friendly. It is close enough Sydney that if you want to shop or go to a movie you can get feels like you are in the countryside. Highly recommend for a romantic getaway!!

A wonderful place to stay. Clean friendly and homey. The rooms are deftly appointed and very romantic. Fireplace and all. Hot tub was closed for the season but would be nice on warmer days. Hopefully they will have the egg cup for breakfast, wonderful!! A truly great place to spend some time. Play at the Lakes golf course next door,...

My wife and I only ate here, but were very impressed by the facilities. The dining area, Malcolm's, is very comfortable and inviting. The food is prepared by a world class chef, and was simply amazing. The presentation, the taste and the portion size were impeccable. Our server, Holly was fantastic, and mature beyond her years. This is a first...

Birches is beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable. Barb was very friendly and attentive to all of our needs. Our evening meal at the in house restaurant, Michael's, was excellent and is highly recommended. The breakfast was delicious with Barb offering to cook eggs to accompany the continental breakfast. The room had a beautiful view of the lake and was quiet.

We stayed at The Birches in order to play The Lakes golf course, which is right next door. The Birches exceeded our expectations in every way, except for breakfast, of which more later. Our suite was very large, with a balcony that stretched around the building. The sitting area was ample, and the bed was extremely comfortable. There are some...

The Birches is not your normal bed and breakfast. It is a new facility owned and operated by a lovely couple-Barb and Larry. There are only 10-12 rooms on two floors. the rooms are very clean, modern and comfortable. You will find many of Batb's beautiful hand made quilts hanging in the lobby as well as in your room.
