My wife and I recently stayed at the Birches for four nights. Suzie and Mike went out of their way to make us feel right at home. Everything was perfect from the gourmet breakfasts, to the amazing views of the garden and waterfront from the property, and like so many other reviews stated, all the helpful suggestions and tips of the Acadia area. Suzie and Mike were so kind and helpful. They answered any question we had and were always around to offer helpful advice. One night, we mentioned to Suzie how we never ate a lobster before and she so kindly asked if we would like to join her and Mike for dinner and she would show us how to eat a lobster properly. We had a wonderful dinner that night. We stayed up and drank wine, played games, and shared stories. It was one of the best nights there for us. The house is amazing and there isn't one bad room there. Everything is clean and well kept, and the beds are so comfy! My wife and I didn't want to leave. We are still talking about the gourmet breakfast and the lovely views from inside the house as it overlooks the gardens and oceanfront. My wife was obsessed with the interior of the house as items within the home were handmade by Suzie's father. Other items have been in her family for decades and have much history to them. My wife and I could go on, The Birches is rated #1 on Trip Advisor for a reason. We highly recommend you picking The Birches for your stay in Maine!
