When friends or families decide to come up to Door County, and especially to Sister Bay for any of the major holiday weekends, such as Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, or, for major festival weekends in October, they sometimes call for reservations at Birchwood Lodge a week or less prior to those busy times. Sadly, there are times when we have to disappoint people when we can’t accommodate them because we don’t have any rooms available for specific dates. If you have experienced such disappointment, may we suggest that you make your reservations well in advance of those holiday and festival times. You can make reservations with us for any dates a year or more in advance. We’ll happily set up your reservation and help you decide the right accommodations available to suit you and others, depending on the size of your group and the rooms available. Be prepared to make a deposit of 50% of the total charges when making any reservation. We’ll review your reservation with you and then email  a confirmation letter listing the specifics of your reservation. It is important that you make a note on your home or personal calendar of this future reservation because we do not send out any reminder reminder notices. Problem solved. You’ve got the dates and room(s) set, then all you have to do is pack your bags and come on up here for all that like best about Door County. Call us at 866-854-7195 to discuss your plans with any of our front desk attendants, or, go on-line for your reservation at www.birchwoodlodge.com. Should you need to cancel or move your reservation to a different set of dates, please contact us in a timely manner so you don’t forfeit your deposit. Reminder: Refunds will only be given to reservations cancelled with a minimum of 14 days notice (minus a $15.00 administration charge). If less than 14 days notice is given, you may change the dates on your reservation or transfer your deposit to a gift certificate, good for one year. Cancellations of  2 days from the date of arrival, regardless of the circumstances, will result in forfeiture of the total deposit.
