My family just stayed at Birch Forest Lodge for a long weekend in January. We enjoyed winter snow shoe hikes, ice fishing on Pelican Lake and spectacular night views of the sky. I have stayed at Birch Forest in both the summer and winter and can honestly say both seasons are equally fun seasons to visit. There's beauty and serenity...

I stayed at Birch Forest Lodge this past winter weekend and enjoyed some snowshoeing and ice fishing. The cabins and rooms are rustically charming, cozy and had great views of the lovely Pelican Lake. The owners are kind, generous people and are very helpful. Would highly recommend staying here during any season! A great getaway!

We had a wonderful family vacation at Birch Forest Lodge last month. Our cabin was located along the lakeshore and beach area. What a wonderful spot for families with children! The cabins were clean, and well equipped. We caught plenty of fish, and enjoyed every evening by the campfire viewing some of the most amazing sunsets. The Van Tassel's were...

Just returned from a three night fishing trip at Birch Forest Lodge and I brought two things home with me, fish for the freezer and a smile on my face.

I couldn't be happier with our experience at Birch Forest Lodge. Our family had a great time catching fish on the lake and playing with all the toys on the sand beach. Great place for families! The cabins were immaculate and made the stay very comfortable. Above all, I really appreciated how friendly and accommodating the owners were to us....

This place was truly a gem! Perfect amenities and setting. The lake was perfect, much less traffic than the bigger lakes and great fishing. Couldn't have asked for a better vacation, and the owners were so helpful and committed to us having a peaceful time!
