The Birches.

The Birches was built in 1996 by Barbara and Lawrence MacPherson. Their vision was simple—to offer service and accommodations that reflected how they liked to be treated when travelling. Although now under a new ownership group, the same commitment to warm hospitality and quality remains. Our goal is to treat every guest to a remarkable stay every time. Your comfort and happiness are our only concerns.

Located in scenic Ben Eoin, Nova Scotia, the Inn overlooks the majestic Bras d’Or Lakes.

Our beautiful inn features lush accommodations just minutes away from four seasons of activity. World-class golf, sailing, skiing, beaches and hiking are all at your fingertips when you stay at the Birches.

Inspiring views and quaint spaces can be found everywhere you look. Nestle by a fireplace and enjoy a book or take in the mountain views from our outdoor hot tub.

Whether you’re seeking tranquility and relaxation or outdoor fun, the Birches is your ultimate getaway.
