Summer is in full swing now at The Birches. We have been very busy with many happy guests. Our lakeside dining room is serving three meals per day from 7 AM until 9 PM. The dockside dining is very popular now. We have a full time baker this season with some of the most amazing deserts and muffins served daily.
Our head chef, “Paul” has been at The Birches for 18 years.
All of our cabin rentals are directly on Moosehead Lake with many of our cabins just a few feet from the water.
Our marina is very busy with several pontoon boats, speed boats, personal watercraft, canoes, kayaks and paddle boards for rent.
Our wildlife safaris have been seeing moose and other Moosehead area wildlife. Jeep tours and pontoon boat tours of remote parts of the lake and the cliffs of Mt Kineo are scheduled daily.
Fishing in the lake and the moose river has been productive.
The Birches is now fostering rescue dogs and we placed our first one this weekend. Charlie Brown, a mixed black labrador was placed with a nice Moosehead region family. Charlie Brown came from Georgia and is now in dog heaven at Moosehead Lake. We now have “cheddar”, a cute six month old mixed breed looking for a new home.
The photo shown is the sunrise from The Birches main dock during summer. The Birches staff looks forward to seeing you soon.
