"We rented in July 2014 and then came back for 2015. We really like the close access to the beach across LSD, the many places to relax including the bright and spacious 3 season room, deck, patio with yard, and the big living room with plenty of windows and fresh air! We have a small dog, so its perfect with the yard for him to wander. Owners are delightful. 3 of the bedrooms are small with single beds and 1 with a queen. Kids used the basement as a dorm to hang out do their thing. It has a 3 single beds too. Great place to entertain since we had a few friends visit for a cook out. Parking easily holds 4 cars. More if you want to butter them them up tight next to each other. Meets all our needs as a vacation destination and close to Chicago."

"We really enjoyed our stay at this rental. Plenty of beach toys for the kids to play on both in and out of the water. Cottage is right on the beach with amazing views of lake Michigan. Indiana dunes state park is within walking distance. For the shoppers in your crowd you can jump a train into Chicago. The owners really jumped in and helped us out with a boating mishap.(our first time on this large lake) I cannot say enough how great it is to find owners who care and are genuine in how they interact with guests. We will return to enjoy this rental location again!!"

"Birchwood Cottage was everything you could want from a cabin at the lake. It is very well appointed and comfortable; the rooms are large; the fireplace is lovely and inviting; and the kitchen is perfect. We totally enjoyed the peace and quiet-neither the deer, chipmunks, or turkeys made any kind of unruly noise. It was perfect for us to be able to enjoy our daughter's family (4 min away), and yet have some privacy for ourselves. We will definitely plan a repeat visit."

"Our family had a great vacation this summer! This house was perfect for us - lovely home, comfortable sleeping accommodations, beautiful modern kitchen, and a very short walk to the beach! The owner was great to work with and even provided a nice welcome gift. We love the area and can't wait to return next summer!"
