Birch Cliff Lodge was established over seventy years ago and today it is one of Ontario's most picturesque cottage resorts. The cottages retain much of their original charm but have now been modernized and upgraded with thermostatically controlled heating and modern, four piece bathrooms with lots of hot water. 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. Linens are supplied. Upon arriving at Birch Cliff you will find your cottage clean and well aired. There will be enough coffee, tea, sugar, salt, pepper, soap and cleaning supplies to get you started. If you have any special requests please don't hesitate to let us know. The cottages and main lodge face southwest, overlooking Baptiste Lake. It is an open, breezy location with a natural sand beach. Tall birches provide shade on warm summer days. Magnificent sunsets reflect across the lake bringing the day to a memorable close.The Baptiste Lake system is one of the prettiest in Ontario. Set in the high, granite hills of North Hastings and Haliburton, Baptiste has long been a favourite of painters, photographers and nature lovers. Birch Cliff offers a variety of recreational activities. In the summer our children's program director organizes hikes, games, crafts, campfires and a weekly Monte Carlo night. There is a fully equipped playground, a horseshoe pit and a ping pong table as well as badminton and volleyball courts. Our clean, sandy beach is weed free and enters the water on a gradual slope, making it safe for youngsters. We also rent canoes, motorboats and pedal boats. We have dock space available for guests who wish to bring their own boats.
