Quite the adventure....so cool!

My grandparents ran the Birch Island Lodge during the war years and my mother and father met there, fell in love and married. My father guided for the lodge and my mother worked there for her parents the owners. So interesting that your grandfather was there in 1909. Small world indeed. We still have a camp on a pond not to far away from Holeb. South about 8 miles away and I go there often to fish and ponder in "the memory hour". Perhaps one day........



Thank you for your comment and reading the poem. I am so happy that we made the quest and found this enchanting place. It is truly a magical place. We will be back!


This was very interesting to read my family has a camp on birch island. Its the small log cabin right on the water behind the two out houses in your picture. One of the best places on earth. Nothing like waking up in the old cabin looking out over that lake. No electricity, running water, of noise. other than the occasional train coming to or from Canada. Very relaxing. There are a few people on the island who like to collect anything that has to do with the island like pictures letters ect. A copy of the poems would be a great addition to the collection. if you have the time to send a copy of them it would be greatly appreciated. If you have the time let me know. my name is nick and my e mail is lmahome@yahoo.com
