  • Winter Wonderland

    "We arrived at the Birchwood cabin on a snowy winter evening, what a surprise to be greeted by a shoveled drive and small lighted Christmas tree. Ian, the owner, checked in soon after to make sure we arrived safely and we had everything we needed. He told us wonderful stories of the origins of the cabin and of Michiana Shores. The cabin is perfect place for two people to escape from the rest of the world. We went into New Buffalo and ate at the Bentwood Tavern - a place I had never been to in all my visits to the area. The food and service were great and the sky was full of snowflakes on the drive back. After a wonderful night's sleep, we awoke to 6 deer outside the bedroom window. No visit to southwestern Michigan is complete without a meal at the Stray Dog Bar and Grill. The food was wonderful (the fish taco's are the best!) and the staff was so helpful and friendly. We stopped at Barney's for supplies for our evening meal and headed back to the Birchwood cabin. Bundled up against the cold, we took the short walk to the beach, crossing from Indiana into Michigan on the way. The roar of the waves got louder as we neared the entrance to the beach, the power of Lake Michigan in the winter is truly amazing. We spent the evening sitting in front of the fire. The kitchen is well equipped with anything you might need. We made a huge salad and homemade pizza and wrapped in a cozy throw, I must admit I dozed on the couch in front of the fire. It was a splendid day. The Birchwood cabin is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of your everyday life, especially in winter. I would love to see Michiana Shores alive in the summer. We may just have to plan that trip soon. I would highly recommend that you do the same."

  • Home away from home

    "We enjoyed our stay at the lake house. It was a very quiet and peaceful area. The upgrades on the interior of the house were really nice. Spacious with lots of room to roam. The multiple decks were nice. We used the outdoor fireplace every night and enjoyed watching nightfall from the lake wall dock."

  • Magnificent!!!

    "Our women's group settled into Sandcastle for a magnificent weekend of long walks on the beach, cozy dinners at home, and dancing around the fire pit at night. It was everything and then some for all of us. The cottage is situated right across from beautiful Lake Michigan and filled with everything you would need to enjoy a cozy fall weekend with friends and/or family. Thank you, Sandcastle, for making this a weekend we will never forget!"

  • dreamy place off the beaten path

    "This place is a wonderful retreat from city life or even suburbia! It is nestled in the woods with so many trails to explore. The house is clean and beautiful and doesn't distract from the nature surrounding the house. We had such a nice stay and I would definitely want to come back. A fun girls weekend that accommodated our need to cook and relax, do some yoga, listen to music and just chill by the fire. THis was quite a treat."
