Birch Cove was such a beautiful location for our family vacation. 6 of us (adults), and our small dogs, were not ready to leave when it came time!
The pictures simply do not do it justice! Shelley and Dale were there to greet us and give us a tour – they are so kind and helpful, I feel as though we have made two new friends! They have thought of everything to make guests feel welcome. Lots of comfy furniture inside upstairs, down, and out on the two decks, a kitchen with everything you could need, 4 bedrooms, and 3 baths gave us plenty of room, The home is much larger than it appears in pictures. The gas fireplace, games, and cable TV came in handy when we had rain and cool weather for a couple of days.
My mom, who is almost 88, had no trouble navigating the house or the yard to the fire pit and the dock. We all loved sitting around the fire (wood provided!), making pizzas, roasting brats, and marshmallows for S’mores. The stars were unbelievably bright, and it was so peaceful.
My son loves to fish, and he caught bass right from the dock the very first morning. We also rented a pontoon that was delivered right to the dock. On our ‘cruises’ we saw bald eagles and loons ‘fishing’ too. The lake is very quiet with a only a few other fishermen and a family tubing. It’s not so much a swimming lake, but ideal for fishing and boating.
Thanks Shelley and Dave for sharing your beautiful vacation home (we called it the “Lake House” – cabin just doesn’t describe it!). It helped make our family vacation one we will always remember!
