Thank you Judi and Tiger for offering your beautiful hideaway from city life! Our family, normally spread between various locations and lives in Canada and the US enjoyed a memorable week of swimming, sunning, and sauna-ing, all surrounded by the gorgeous nature and views this place had to offer. We all enjoyed speculating how wonderful all the different seasons must be here.
Thanks again for everything!
The B family

Summer, 2013
Something for everyone - canoeing, kayaking, but best of all just relaxing and taking in the beautiful views. Reading on the porch was one of the best things to do to get that real get away from it all feeling. Judi and Tiger have a fabulous place where the rest of the world doesn't intrude.

July/August 2013
B and I are deeply grateful for the opportunity to stay in your idyllic cottage. Indeed I'm not sure I'll be able to make B leave without blasting caps. Everything about the house is charming and comfortable - its design, its situation, its amenities. We couldn't have asked for a more appealing place to get away and to visit with family. We can only hope to come back again and share this slice of paradise with more of our family.

August 23, 2012: Silver Birches Guestbook
'What a beautiful spot - I felt like pinching myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming for the first few days. Our 3 boys have had a wonderful time here with their cousins. Very sorry to be leaving here.
'Tomorrow I will wake up and wonder - was it all a wonderful dream?'

August 4, 2012 Silver Birches Guestbook
'The members of the Caledon Cycling Club really enjoyed our visit. We appreciated your beautiful home and property, and we took full advantage of your sauna and dock. Our evenings spent sitting around your massive table in the covered patio watching the sun set were unforgettable. Thank you for a wonderful trip. We will enjoy reminiscing about the time we've spent on Lac Mempremagog and mountain biking at Coaticook, East Hereford and East Burke.'
Jen & Chris - Chantal & Peter - Joe & Dina - John & Marilyn

July, 2012 Silver Birches Guestbook:
'Thank you and your ancestors for sharing this very beautiful, positive house and surroudings and thank you to the earth, the lake, the trees, the sun that continues to provide for us and for your stewardship of this magical place.' written by an elderly guest who painted in the front yard in a makeshift tent set up by his grandchildren.

Written by owner Judi Jacobi: 'I travel a lot and love peaceful places in nature. When I return to my home on the lake I´m always amazed at how beautiful and quiet it is here. Situated on the eastern shore of Lake Memphremagog to ensure a sunset view and mere steps from the water you will be spoiled forever after staying here. The large, wooden house is a one mile drive from the main road on a dead end driveway. The house is very comfortable with more windows than walls but when not inside enjoying the spacious kitchen, fireplace and comfy bedrooms and jacuzzi tubs you´ll spend your time out on the big deck built around 2 Silver Birch trees gazing at the lake, dining at the round table and listening to the breeze whisper through the giant pine trees. When not on the deck you´ll be soaking up the sun on the dock, in the sauna, kayaking, swimming, biking, jogging or walking the country roads and trails through the woods inhabited only by deer, birds, small animals, and mushrooms. If you do decide to explore the interesting border community we live in you will be delighted by the small towns nearby. On the Canadian side here in Quebec the French culture flourishes! Foodies will love the many interesting choices in the markets (we have a Farmer's market on Sunday now!) and in the restaurants. You will also be delighted by the Blacksmith Gallery, Colby Curtis museum and the Haskell Opera House and library with the US/Canadian border running right through it! These attractions are minutes from the Silver Birches. The Silver Birches is large and comfortable and easily accommodates 10 people. The tower is a big hit, especially with the young set who prefer sleeping there to a bedroom! The house is cleaned using gentle, natural cleaners and we recycle whatever we possibly can and compost. The theme of the small, friendly neighborhood is pleasure and peace. There is a space for a power boat. One can rent a boat to tour the interesting 26 mile long lake.

E mail me for photos of the inside and lots more of the outside See you at the lake!
