Birch Cliff Memories

Birch Cliff Lodge was built in 1931 by Art and Edythe Nicoll.

By the summer of 1932 most of the present Birch Cliff cottages were built and given their quaint
Scottish names, such as Bide-a-Wee, Linger Long, Restin Up and Dunworryn.

Realizing that Birch Cliff is a lake heritage site, Peter Brown (pdjbrown@sympatico.ca) and Pete Richardson came up with the thought that maybe there are former staff or visitors who have an amusing story, or recollection about working or staying at Birch Cliff during either the Nicolls' era or currently with the Milnes'.
To start things off, Peter as written an article about being the last "Dock Boy" at the Nicoll's Birch Cliff Lodge in the 1960's.
