"Our group had an amazing time! We have been to this cottage in the summer, however the fall was just as fun! The colors were absolutely beautiful this time of the year. The house is very comfortable and very clean. There was plenty of room for all of us. We can't wait to go back!!"

"Leaning Birch Lodge was our choice for our family's only get-away this year. We only had 5 days and we really wanted to make them count. What a perfect choice this cottage was! Our children are 4, 2, and 6 months, and this place was just the right size: not too big, not too cramped. The living area was spacious enough to spread out on furniture and the floor for games. Both bedrooms were large, giving the kids another area to go play. And our kids LOVED the really special log bunks with log ladder - this was major highlight for them! The sunporch was my favorite place, especially after dinner until bed time . . . peaceful and bright and wonderful. One of my very favorite things about the cottage was all of the artifacts from my youth, or even my parents' youth! Life Magazines back to the early 60s, beautiful furniture serving its purpose for decades, perfectly functional kitchen utensils from the 70s. The whole place was old and cottage-y enough to feel really special and relaxed, but the amenities were modern enough to make it all comfortable. Very clean, too. The sunsets were breathtaking. It felt like Leaning Birch Lodge was the most perfectly situated property in the entire world to see a great sunset. And due to our dates and the up north locale, I stayed outside reading a book until after 10:00 one evening . . . with no other light. The days were looooong on Otsego Lake! For the price, the comfort, the location, and the ambiance, Leaning Birch Lodge was IT. We will go back!"

"Perfect place for a family summer get away! Very spacious and well maintained rental! Very clean and the amenities were perfect. Very quiet area. Beautiful small lake with not a lot of activity. Quite close to Traverse and Mackinac (about an hour each). We will certainly be back! Thank you so much for sharing your cottage with our family!"
