"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!"

"We were so pleasantly surprised how clean and good smelling the cabin was when we arrived. It has plenty of room and amenities and is really comfortable. It didn't take long for it to feel like home. We liked it so much we booked it for next year before we left."

"I chose this cottage for a quiet weekend away. This place fit the bill! Very quiet easy to get to and from and not far from anything. Everything is provideo and there is a grocery store near bar for anything you may have forgotten."
