My husband and I stayed at the Twin Birches with another couple during the annual car show in September 2011. We stayed in cabin #6 which had two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two doubles. The beds were a little too firm for our liking but not horrible. There was a huge living room area with plenty of seating and the furniture and carpeting looked new. The kitchen was a descent size and was equipted with basic pots and pans, dishes, and silverware. The bathroom was clean and the shower had descent water pressure. The cottage was very charming looking but more importantly it was very clean. Bed linens, towels and toilet paper were provided. There was no wi fi service in our cottage but it was available if you went down near the office. It was too cold to swim but the pools looked nice. The playground was full of kids having fun and the mini golf course would be great for little kids as well. The arcade/rec room also looked well stocked for teenagers (or bored husbands). There was also a charcoal BBQ grill and a fire pit outside though we didn't use it since we were there for only two days. The front desk staff was friendly and even allowed us to check out an hour later without charge.
If I had to complain about anything it would be that the tv was extremely small (maybe 20") and old fashioned. It's across the room from the couches so it's size made it a little difficult to see. We also found it weird we had to leave a $20 deposit to get the remote control. It was returned when we returned the remote but still strange and a bit annoying. Also there was no mirror in the room with the double beds. That made it hard to be able to get ready (do hair and make up) when someone else was showering.
Other than those two minor complaints we thought Twin Birches was great. We will definitely be staying there again next year.
