Along with The Birches Bed and Breakfast is a "The Old House" located a few hundred feet away available for weekly rental.

The Old House is over 110 years old, and The Birches was built as a summer cottage in 1916. This summer cottage was built by Martha Brown Fink and was bought by the Homers in 1950. Extensive renovations in 1974 have produced a year round house reminicent of Maine at its best.
