"This house is a hidden gem, I am so glad I found it! It's very clean, and has almost everything you will need. There is a big gas grill, a volleyball court, and a fire pit in the backyard. And the owner provides the firewood. Sitting around the fire and toasting some marshmallow is definitely a highlight of the stay. Bills farm market is like less than 1 mile away, and it's less than 10 min's drive to the downtown area and the lake."

"What a wonderful jewel. Owner was very responsive and a joy to deal with. Everything you needed was in the house, towels and sheets, and the house was spotless when we arrived. Very nice beach and dock, quiet, fully, and I mean fully, stocked kitchen with every tool and appliance needed to whip up a snack or full 10 course meal. Great lake and close enough to Traverse city for shopping and meals. Farm on the corner, across from the chairs, has great eggs.

"This is the 4th summer that we have stayed at Birch Haven. I wrote a review after the first summer and feel the need to reiterate. This place is truly a gem. I love the space and privacy this property offers. The cottage itself has plenty of room for our family of 4 adults, 4 kids , and 2 dogs. Everything was clean and we really had everything we needed. The property itself is so expansive and private. There are no close neighbors aside from the caretaker's place. We spent a lot of time in the lake this year due to the hot weather. The bottom is rocky, but not a problem if you wear watershoes. The space for campfires and smores is great. It feels like you are camping, except you get to sleep in a comfortable bed at the end of night :) The kids got in a good game of baseball in the fields again this year. Golf, foot golf, biking, volleyball in the lake, trips to Glen Arbor, and Moomer's for ice cream were the highlights this year. It seems like we find something different to do each year because the location is so perfect. This place offers everything needed for a true up North vacation. Many thanks to the owners for everything and we will be back again next year!"

"More than you would expect from renting a cottage.
Owner goes above and beyond to make you feel at home in vacation. They even left a small (nice) welcoming gift :)
Updated place, modern look, plenty of supplies, clean, welcoming, not enough words to describe this wonderful cottage."
