This season, we will be offering takeout and food delivery service to our cabins, houses and RV sites this summer! Our beautiful dock at the main lodge was re-constructed this fall and affords room for lots of outside dining with space and fresh air, not to mention the views!!!

Our lodging is pet friendly and far away from busy roads. We have many miles of trails for hiking and biking with your family and furry family members. This is a great place to social distance as you can play for hours in the woods or on the lake without encountering others.


We expect a busy summer as people look to recreate in areas that offer the opportunity to relax and social distance and because many Americans are likely to be staying in the country. Call or email our reservation specialists to plan your Maine Adventure this summer! We can set you up with boats rentals, float plane rides, white water rafting trips, Moose/wildlife cruises, jeep tours and much more!

Call 207-534-7588 or email ,info@birches.com

All of our lodging and dining options are directly on the shore of Moosehead Lake, Maine’s largest!

We are accessible by boat, snowmobile, plane, car and ATV.

2019 - 2020 TRAIL REPORTS


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.
