Birch Cliff Lodge was established over seventy years ago and today it is one of Ontario's most picturesque cottage resorts. The cottages retain much of their original charm but have now been modernized and upgraded with four piece bathrooms. There will be enough coffee, tea, sugar, salt, pepper, soap and cleaning supplies to get you started. Other facilities at Birch Cliff include a small store stocked with grocery essentials and clothing, and a laundromat.
The cottages and main lodge face southwest, overlooking Baptiste Lake. It is an open, breezy location with a natural sand beach. Tall birches provide shade on warm summer days. Magnificent sunsets reflect across the lake bringing the day to a memorable close. We are a family resort. Families with young children are a large part of our clientele. We appreciate noise being kept at a minimum from 10pm on week days and 11pm on weekends. If you are using the waterfront at night for bonfires or swimming, please also obey these guidelines out of respect for neighboring cottages.
