Perfect getaway for couples

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent six nights at this little cabin in the woods and really loved it. It is one of the original cabins in the development, which dates from the 1920s. The owners have done a very sensitive job of restoration, so it feels like a bit of a step into the past but with all the modern conveniences. Pretty much everything one could need is provided, from a full complement of dishes, pots and pans, etc., to beach chairs.

The beach is a 15-minute walk away but we rode our bikes and had fun looking at all the different cottages. We also loved sitting out on the deck in the early mornings and evenings--there are deer and other wildlife in the area, who come to visit.

If you want a lovely, secluded and comfy place to relax, but one which is close to fun things to do, this is the place.

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Stayed five days at the cabin and it was excellent. Everything you need is there and it is a short 10 to 15 minute walk to the lake. Only ate out twice but did Stop 50 Pizza and the Stray Dog Bar and Grill and both were excellent as well. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place, just go and enjoy.

Birchwood Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Birchwood Cabin is where I go to relax, restore and rejuvenate. The cabin is so charming, wonderfully cozy and quiet. The walk to the beach is easy. My family's roots are here; I lived in the area as a child and spent many summers at The Dunes beaches. So in many ways I feel as though I'm coming home.

Birchwood Cabin is my little slice of heaven!

The most peaceful comfortable cabin we have ever rented

The owners thought of everything and responded to all of our needs and questions immediately and very hospitable. It was a charming peaceful cabin and had all the comforts of home. A very special respite in a beautiful wooded area.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Booked a week to get away and enjoy Lake Michigan. This cabin was the perfect find. Had everything I needed and the location was so peaceful! I enjoyed the peace and quiet and being able to walk to the beach. Mariya was so kind to explain the history of the cabin and provide info on the area. While there was wi-fi, there didn't seem to be internet service. Not sure if this was user error on my part, but I didn't even bother asking as it gave me a good excuse to check in with the office less while I was away! I would definitely stay here again.
