The Birchwood lodge has been our family Labor Day tradition for many years. It is close to downtown Sister Bay, friendly and clean. But, our favorite reason for coming to this hotel is the pool. It is consistently warm. Thank you

Thank Gingerh999
CollakR, General Manager at Birchwood Lodge, responded to this review

Thank you for your repeated business. We keep the pool warmer especially because of the families with smaller kids. There is not a worse party crasher than a cold pool. :) Hope to see you soon in winter months. Nothing beats swimming in the indoors and watching Wisconsin snowstorm through the pool windows. More

We enjoyed our stay in one of the village homes at Birchwood Lodge. The space of the home was exceptional and the rooms and furnishings well appointed.

When we first walked into the room, we immediately realized that our "separate bedroom space" was a wall with no doors on either side opening back into the living room area.

We had three families (8 total people) and the farmhouse was a perfect fit with 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms. We had a complete kitchen and since we were just a quarter mile from the grocery store, we made full meals and sandwiches everyday.
