Take a step back in thyme to this turn of the century country manor. Each season offers a reason to visit this enchanting bed and breakfast. Lilac, apple, plum and pine trees blossom in spring, with scents of days gone bye. On a lazy summer afternoon, stroll down to the beach for a dip, or sip a glass of homemade lemonade. Rustle through the leaves on a cool fall morning or sit for a spell on the guest's favorite spot, the front porch swing. Play the winter away at nearby Christie Mountain, or venture onto the Ice Age or Tuscobia trails and indulge in the "Great North Woods."
Birchwood is known as the "Four Corners" because it's centrally located between Rice Lake, Spooner, Ladysmith and Hayward Wisconsin. "Around the Four Corners" written by Ethel Elliott Chappelle (know as Mrs. Birchwood) celebrates and narrates the history of our Great Northwoods also known as "God's Country". This book is available at our Bed and Breakfast.
