Cozy, comfortable cabin with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

Great for a relaxing getaway. Nestled in a small, woodsy neighborhood only a 10 minute walk from Lake Michigan. Saw many deer roaming around. The kitchen is well stocked with essential equipment for cooking. Cozy fire with the flip of a switch, comfy couches and an interesting variety of dvds and reading material. It was great!

Vintage retreat with modern comfort

  • 5 of 5

Loved this extremely comfortable, well-equipped, quiet cabin. A perfect retreat to recoup some energy. The wooded location, fireplace and original interior feel like being up north without the longer trek. On a windy day, I could hear the waves of Lake Michigan. Lots of good walks nearby.

The cabin has everything you need for a relaxing weekend getaway. Close to the lake and dunes.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in great condition, fully furnished and very cozy. We especially enjoyed the gas powered fireplace in the living room. We were able to make it to Indiana Dunes State Park and several wineries in under 30 minutes. The owners are very attentive and friendly.

Cozy, Romantic Cabin

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Birchwood Cabin for a romantic weekend getaway. We were not disappointed! It's the perfect setting for two. Nicely remodeled kitchen and bath. The gas fireplace was one of our favorite things-no tending the fire. Nice selection of movies too. Cozy furniture and ample ambient lighting which we really enjoyed.

The 4" of snow we got overnight only enhanced the feeling of being inside a wonderful, romantic cocoon.

We enjoyed the nearby Asian restaurant in New Buffalo which is definitely worth a visit. Good sushi and huge portions.

Only caveat-lots of spider webs. Hopefully the owner has rectified by now. I would plan another getaway there, especially in fall or winter. It's the perfect romantic retreat. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We will make it a point to reach up high to remove any webs and double check low areas. This is the first complaint about webs ever. We would have addressed the issue immediately if we knew about it or precisely where these webs were located. Our policy is for guests to let us know of any issue while they are staying. This allows us to view and correct.

Super cozy and extremely clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Birchwood cabin very much. My husband and I needed a few days away to relax and unwind. The cabin was so cozy and clean. Everything you needed was there. Loved the fireplace. We went out to eat one night and brought in carry out Chinese the second night and enjoyed it by the fireplace. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin home with us. We would definitely stay again if we come to that area.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

5 stars just isn't enough! The cabin was the perfect getaway for our 18th Anniversary Celebration and my husbands 40th birthday. Everything we needed and more. Clean and cozy! We could have stayed curled up in front of the fireplace for days. Already making plans to visit again.
