A letter from the owner:
The Birches Resort was built in the 1930’s as a hunting and fishing lodge. We’re located on Moosehead Lake in Rockwood, Maine, on a privately owned, 11,000 acre nature preserve. We’re in the heart of Maine’s Great North Woods, the last remaining wilderness in New England. My family has owned and operated The Birches Resort for over 40 years. In the summer try canoeing, kayaking, hiking and mountain biking. In the winter take to the trails on cross country skis or snow shoes, or explore the area by snowmobile. Search for wildlife on a moose cruise or wilderness safari. Like to fish? Fly fishing and ice fishing are our specialty. Take a dip in the lake, work out in our fitness center, or just kick back and gaze at the beautiful scenery. All activities originate from the resort; once here, you won’t need your car. Accommodations vary from cabins on the lake, lodge rooms to large rental homes. Try us for breakfast, lunch or dinner in our dining room overlooking the lake. I hope you’ll visit us and explore our special part of the world. John Willard Owner & Licensed Maine Master Guide Commercial Floatplane pilot
