Location, Charm & Spotless
"This was our second time staying here – we hope to come back for a 3rd visit. Could have stayed for a month!! It was 2 couples and 2 single folks, up for a college reunion – having the 4 bedrooms was great. The house was spotless upon our arrival. The location is superb with many great shops, markets and restaurants in close walking distance – if you like Indian food, there is a great place right around the corner. There is easy on-street parking – it was never an issue for us. There is a strong Wi-Fi which worked great, and a wonderful porch. The kitchen is the ‘hub’ of the house and if you like to cook, there are all the pots, pans and spices you could need. Linda has a wonderful “use and replace” policy with the kitchen supplies. In general, it is a great place in a great location. We will indeed come back!!"

"My wife and 4 year old daughter had such an enjoyable stay at this cottage! Kate and Colm made us feel like part of their family and our daughter loved playing with their dog Goldie, feeding the fishes, climbing the tree and playing on the hammock. We look forward to our next stay here!"

"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!"

"My family and I stayed here in the summer. My kids had so much fun. They loved the basketball court, they loved playing volley ball and my little one loved the playground, indoor pool, kiddie pool, and the movie theater. The place was clean and there was room for all of us. Great ocean view. The owner was very nice. Thanks for letting us stay at your place. We loved it"
