Why Birchland
Why Birchland

Birchland Cottages is a quiet peaceful retreat just west of Iron Bridge Ontario.

Birchland Cottages is established on 15 acres of wooded land 200 meters off Hwy 17 with 1200 feet of pristine, natural waterfront. The Cottages are located on the water surrounded by hardwood Maple forest so you think you are miles from civilization, but still have easy access to local amenities. Clear Lake is an inland lake with crystal clear water. The lake has no public access and the north side of the lake is undisturbed woodlands so all you see is nature at its best. Clear Lake provides an excellent water sports playground and is exceptional for water skiing or tubing. The deepest part of Clear Lake is 30 feet. This allows the lake to warm up very well making an excellent swimming lake. There are no dead heads or reefs in the lake so it is safe for boaters who are not familiar with the lake. With only eight cottages on the property, Birchland Cottages provides the serenity of nature without the chaos of seasonal campsites and trailers.

The fishing is great, too. Check out this segment of “XTV Xtreme Bass Angler” at Clear Lake: Click here to watch a video.
