Any comments on Birchwood Lake community? I know a couple years ago they had some issues w/ the lake & e coli/coliform. Is that taken care of now?

I would really prefer to hear from people who currently have a home in there, or who have family/friends who currently have a home there.

Hi Karen,

I do not live there anymore but had a house there in the 1970's to the mid 1980's it was a great place to grow up in the summer time. I know people there now who are very happy with the community. We used to walk to the General Store back then. It was called the Gay Bull (owned by the Gable Family). I think now it is Lakeview. At it's peak it had 4-5 lakes, 2 swimming pools, a club house and I have fond memories of Birchwood. Hopefully you will hear from folks who live there.

My friend has a vacation home there. Now, while she hasnt used it in many years she has very fond memories there. The only thing is the water ; she has had many problems with it and just cannot seem to get it right. Her kids love it there but unfortunately cannot use it because of the water. it is probably just her house as it is old and needs updating.

We are looking to purchase a little cottage on the lake and if anybody else knows of problems with the lake water please let us know. We of course would want our grand kids to fish, swim and boat on the lake. Thanks so much!

I was trying to buy a home in Birchwood, I just received the results from the inspection. The home I was thinking of purchasing failed the septic test (sewage was coming up in the yard) and I just received the well water results. They tested positive for ecoli among other things. Needless to say, we are not going through with the purchase.

Default Water Problems in Birchwood Lakes Association?

Hello, I see several houses for sale in this association but I am wondering if anyone else has heard about well water problems too? A Realtor told me that this is one of the oldest vacation communities in the area, and the older homes have more problems with their drinking water because the wells were not deep enough and setup properly like the newer homes. I know that the purchase agreement deal can be cancelled if the well water tests are no good, but I am wondering if this is widespread in the association and therefore might become a problem for other homes too?
