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.

We had a fantastic time vacationing at Birch Haven. It is a beautiful spot to relax and unwind. This was by far the best cottage we have ever rented, from a fully equipped kitchen to lots of good quality patio furniture available for use. Having a fridge down at the lake was great for keeping things nice and cool and saving the steps up to the cottage. It is a very peaceful property!
Remco was an amazing host, from meeting us when we arrived to ensuring everything was in place for us to have a great vacation. When we notified him that the BBQ had died, not only did he respond to our email immediately but he had a brand new unit assembled and delivered within 24 hours. It was very difficult to leave and we would definitely rent this property again! Many thanks to Remco for an unforgettable holiday!!! Jamie & Sarah.

Thank you, Meandi. It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed all that Birch Haven has to offer. We are also hoping to add an additional floating dock next year, to accommodate direct mooring at the dock with lower water levels.
