Birch Hill Inne is one of the few early remaining landmarks in the Crosslake area. This historic home dates back to 1924. The original function of a carriage house was for summer guests, carriages and horses. The property was originally owned by W.A. and Lillian Eberman of Cross Lake Land Co. The Eberman’s purchased the parcel of land between Ox Lake and Loon Lake from the Cross Lake Land Company for “summer resort purposes.” They then went on to build Oscawana Resort in 1926. There were eight full log cabins, several out buildings including a carriage house, which housed carriages and horses for summer tourists. Birch Hill Inne has a long tradition of welcoming visitors and encouraging them to feel at home all year round.

We specialize in serving you as our guest and provide a professional chef on our staff. We hope that if you come to stay with us you will also feel right at home. The property has had it’s variety of entities such as “The Snack Bar” which was an eatery for sandwiches and desserts. Soon after opening it blossomed into a restaurant that served home style dinners until 1970. The dining room of the old restaurant has been preserved as closely as possible to the original, including the old pine tables.

The property was used as an antique shop for 15 years. The living quarters and storage building have been remodeled into five beautiful, comfortable guest rooms. The rooms are filled with antique furniture, comfortable beds, private baths and pleasant views. Two of the rooms have double Jacuzzi baths as well as showers. The property includes a renovated carriage house that is its own private cottage separate from the main lodge.

Your Inne Keepers,
