A pleasant welcome awaits you at the Birch Lodge as you come to relax or play and enjoy the seasons on the peaceful and quiet shores of Granary Lake (Magog Lake), a private little lake surrounded by mountains and beautiful scenery. Our cottages are located in North-eastern Ontario, halfway between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie, just 12 kilometres (8 miles) north of the village of Blind River.
All five of our fully-equipped housekeeping Cottages face the lake and have a wonderful waterfront view overlooking 870 feet of shoreline and sandy beach area. Each cottage has a glass and screen porch and an outside deck with a picnic table and BBQ. These Cottages all have use of the sauna building. We offer two fire pits for an evening campfire, roasting marshmallows and listening to the whip-poor-will sing. Our sandy beach area is clean and great for swimming. For additional recreation we have a spot for volleyball or badminton and a horseshoe pit, along with a large set of swings for the young and the young at heart.
Enjoy hiking or mountain biking on the trails, the regional Voyageur Trail goes right by our property and will take you through the forest to some wonderful scenic outlooks with great views, always have a camera on hand. Bring your ATV or your Argo; we have trails available right from the lodge, and we can take you on a guided tour as well. Go golfing at Huron Pines, a great 19-hole golf course in Blind River, just 10 minutes from our place. Early spring fishing for the sportsmen or fall fishing and hunting are also available. If you have your own boat, bring it along as there is no extra charge for docking or launching. This gives you the opportunity to fish three other lakes, not more than a fifteen minute drive away.
Our beautiful white winters speak for themselves with snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Enjoy some great outdoor ice-fishing or cozy up in our fishing hut. For the snowmobile enthusiast, Northern Ontario has some wonderful trails and we are just minutes from the D trail with marked trails leading you to Birch Lodge.
We offer Bed and Breakfast lodge for the snowmobilers and anyone else passing through our area in the fall or early spring. It's a nice quiet place to curl up on your porch with a good book or enjoy the view. During off-season we also offer daily rentals or 3-day package rentals; great for romantic weekend getaways or time-out to do something different.
We also have RV hookups, come enjoy the peaceful shores with your RV or camper on Granary Lake, parking only 100 ft. from the water, enjoy the scenery and our sandy beach. Have a Sauna and an evening campfire. Paved road to get here and plenty of parking, only 13 minutes north of Pretty Blind River, ON.
If you are looking for a vacation or just relaxing and filling your days with outdoor activities, we have something for everyone. There are truly lots of reasons to come to Northern Ontario. We look forward to making your time with us special.
