This place is special . It was the perfect getaway for our family of 5. We really appreciated everything this property had to offer. It was fully stocked, clean and had Extras- such as, games and flotation devices and life jackets for us and the kids . There was even an aluminum row boat included that my littlest loved . The Host was wonderful to connect with too.
Hope to stay here again in the future .

Thank you Christina, for your kind words. It would be wonderful to see your family return to Birch Haven so time in the future.

We spent two AMAZING weeks at Birch Haven in August 2021, and all I can say is WOW!! This place is absolutely incredible, even more impressive in person than it looks in the photos. We travelled as a family of 4 with our 2 kids, ages 4&6. It was one of the best holidays we've ever had (and we travel a lot!).
For starters, Remco, our host, was wonderful. He was always available at a moments notice if we needed him, and otherwise he left us to enjoy our privacy.
The cabin is stunning, what a view!! It's extremely clean, and unbelievably well stocked. I was so impressed with all the extras on hand, there's even a nice big laundry basket! Things like that make a big difference when staying for an extended period. The kitchen has anything you may need, from cooking utensils, to Saran Wrap, tinfoil, baking staples, spices, and even lots of Tupperware to store leftovers. Anything we needed, we found.
The lake is UNREAL. We brought our boat and it was an easy launch from the provincial park right across the lake. There are a lot of stairs down to the water, but we actually enjoyed the exercise! The lower patio has a little storage building which has a mini fridge, this was so handy to keep water and drinks down by dock!
We had a few guests come to stay, and made use of the guest cabin which sits in the grassy yard between the main house and the lake. It's very clean and beautifully furnished.
I'm so impressed with Birch Haven and we will 100% be back next year!

Thank you for sharing your experience with other potential guests, much appreciated. It would be my pleasure to host your family again next year.

We stayed a week in Birch Haven in late september and enjoyed the autumn days in a beautiful cottage surrounded by nature and a wonderful scenery. The house is fully stocked with everything you need - and more. The master bedroom has the most stunning views across the lake and everything else is also as advertised. The Wifi helps to stay connected with the outside world in an otherwise secluded location away from it all. Remco welcomed us the first night and had a lot of recommendations to make the most of our stay in Horsefly and above. The village itself, some 14 kilometres from Birch Haven, has a very well stocked general store, a gas station and also a pub. We were looking for a break from the busy city and that is exactly what we found.

Thank you Thomas. It was wonderful to host you and Jörg for part of your great BC trip. When you sit back around Christmas time, no doubt will you have many great memories from this trip. Thank you for leaving such a tidy cottage behind after leaving, much appreciated. Please feel free to spread the word about Birch Haven with all our German friends. Thank you for your stay at Birch Haven.

My wife and I recently stayed at Birch Haven. What an amazing cottage! Typically, you find places that look good online and then disappoint when you arrive. Birch Haven is very different. Remco is an amazing host and the pictures he posts are exactly what you get. It is quiet, clean, and fully stocked for a great stay. We enjoyed everyday on the lake swimming, fishing, and suntanning on the large dock. The rowboat was a great addition to our stay. We used it to get out on the lake and enjoy the view. Wifi was excellent and enabled us to stay a bit connected.

If you are looking to get away from it all and enjoy beautiful BC, this is your place!!!

Thank you Dwayne, for your very positive review. It was great to see that together you were having a true home-away-from-home experience, as well as treating the cottage so respectfully. This is much appreciated from my end.

I am looking forward to working out the details of next year's stay.

We had a memorable time at Remco's place in mid-July. Diving down thru water clear to the bottom and canoeing at dusk are what stick with me. Others in the family enjoyed lazing on the deck and hunting berries - which were not plentiful this summer. We came prepared for horseflies and didn't encounter even one. Remco was a pleasure to deal with and talk to. Heartily recommended if any of the above speak to you.
