Wish I had read a serious review before I booked this weekend getaway. Moosehead views were amazing and that was about all that The Birches had going for them. I booked a 2 night stay in the lodge and got little to no sleep due to the fact that we were directly over the local bar where people we loud and obnoxious all night long, both nights. Second, in the lodge you have to share a bathroom with all other rooms in the lodge... it was very small and very unclean. Upon booking the rooms at $120+/- a night I had seen that there was a dining area right in the lodge, which I thought may include atleast breakfast, I was wrong. The meals were decent, but I would say above average in price. The staff was friendly, but did not make up for the uncomfortable atmosphere. I have to say I was very disappointed in our stay, especially since traveling is not something my fiance and I get to do very often.
