My family made our first trip to White Birch Lodge, hope to make it an annual event. There is something for everyone at WBL. Water sports for all ages - skiing, wake boarding, and tubing; kayaking, sailing, and wake board paddling. Or you can just relax in the sun while reading a book. Programs for young children each morning provide a break for parents.
The staff is terrific, handles everything from serving meals to teaching a novice to ski.
Rooms are adequate, about what you would expect in a summer cottage. But you only sleep in your room. WBL had so many outdoor activities to enjoy the room is rarely used!
Food is served family style, is tasty and plentiful. One night features an adult dinner where the parents eat in the dining room and the children, supervised by staff, enjoy an outdoor picnic. Gave parents another nice break.
