Located in the Point Beach area, the cottage is surrounded by woods and in the vicinity of private summer homes. It's across the road from the bay just outside of the harbor of Egg Harbor. This traditional one story cottage has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, dining room, living room, fireplace, kitchen and screened porch. You can walk to the Alpine 36 hole golf course, 1/4 mile away or the Alpine Resort with restaurant and bar, 3/4 mile from this house. This quiet area with very little traffic is great for walks. The Alpine Beach and the Egg Harbor Beach are less than one mile away.

Why Cindy Livingston or Emily Pitchford chose Egg Harbor
The Birchmont cottage has been in our family from the beginning. It's close to Alpine Resort and Golf and close to all the great things Egg Harbor (and Door County) has to offer. It's only available for vacations in the spring, summer and fall. My family is very protective of this house and keep it very clean and well maintained.
What makes this Cottage unique
This house is a cute "cottage" located in an area of private summer homes with lots of trees and walking trails and it's right across the road from the water with public access to the water. I'ts just outside of the harbor of Egg Harbor in an area called "Point Beach" where the summer neighbors are friendly and fun. It's walking distance to Alpine's 36-hole golf course and just a short walk to the Alpine beach and Egg Harbor beaches. There is a house located between Birchmont and the water and you are able to walk across the road to the water. Murphy Park swimming beach is in the other direction about two miles from Birchmont.

Loved the location, near the bay. We stayed there in October and the trees were absolutely beautiful.
The reason for the 3 stars, the website said wifi, but you only get wifi at the main resort, there isn't any in the cottage. Be careful of the faucets in the shower, turn the hot off first before the cold, my friend turned the cold off first and almost burned her skin. Paid $10 for firewood, but the wood was wet and didn't burn, ran around outside to find firewood alongside the road.
Cute cottage, needs updating
The cottage is on a nice property and has the potential to be a nice place to stay. Just a short walk to the water is something we always look forward to. The beds are very uncomfortable and there are some home repairs that need to be addressed. The cottage is part of the Alpine resort which also needs some updating. The staff were very nice.
The Birchmont Experience!
The Birchmont is a very nice northern Wisconsin cottage located just south of Egg Harbor and just across the road from the bay. We enjoyed our time there and felt that the cost matched our experience. Our group was two couples and two 1 year old kids, and we felt there was enough room for all of us. The location also provided a quiet and beautiful backdrop that worked perfectly for our young children and their early bedtimes!
