Birch Cliff Lodge, Bancroft Ontario
Birch Cliff Lodge was established over sixty years ago and today it is one of Ontario's most picturesque cottage resorts. The cottages retain much of their original charm, and have now been modernized to contain thermostatically controlled heating and modern, four piece bathrooms .
Birch Cliff Lodge is situated on the shores of Baptiste Lake, ten kilometers from the Village of Bancroft. It is in a wonderful location in a grove of birches, with a magnificent western view of Baptiste Lake.
This lovely lake, from the rising mists of the morning to the glorious sunsets of evening, provides an ideal vacation setting.
The tall birches provide shade on warm summer days for guests to watch all the activities on the waterfront and on the clean, sandy beach and playground.
The kitchens have full size refrigerators and stoves and are stocked with dishes, cutlery and cooking utensils. Each cottage has either a screened porch or an open deck with a table and chairs.
