Birch Landing cottage is one of our two small cottages located at the end of a private trail on the breezy east shores of Lake Paradise. Best suited for a couple or family of three, the property sits adjacent to the Stony Point Nature Preserve and Carp Lake Township Park with many hiking trails to explore. It's near a secluded swing set in the woods with lakefront views. Bring a pole and fish right off the dock or take one of our kayaks on the water! Nature abounds with loons singing, deer running in the woods, and chipmunks scurrying in the yard. Enjoy the comfort of white-knotty pine inside while entertaining or reading by the stone fireplace. Sleep well in a king size bed or have fun cooking a homemade meal with modern appliances. There's no need to go to the park when you can live on one. Our guests always feel right at home here.
Cottage amenities include:
Paddle boat & Kayak
Playground in the woods
Open stone fire pit for bonfires (cut wood is provided)
Weber charcoal barbecue grill
Pots, pans, dishes, and utensils
King sized bed and sleeper sofa
Blankets, pillows, and sheets
