Treat yourself to a relaxing getaway at the Inn at Birch Wilds.

Nestled in the scenic Blue Mountains is the town of Lehighton where the Inn at Birch Wilds welcomes you. After four years of planning and perfecting their cozy getaway destination, innkeepers Cheryl and Rhonda (sisters and Bethlehem natives) opened their doors in early October 2016.

The Inn at Birch Wilds is housed in a log and stone home dating back to 1750 complete with beautiful mountain views. The mission of the property is to help guests forget about their worries and be able to unwind, relax and be close to nature. To help allow for this sense of seclusion, the inn is strictly for adults only. A stay here will provide you with a romantic combination of peace and quiet.
