We built our cabin in 2000 after owning our lakeshore since 1988. We use it throughout much of the year, but spend time visiting out-of-state family in July, so thought it would be a good opportunity to rent it out during this time to help pay the property taxes!
Birch Lake is amazing- most of the lakeshore is Superior National Forest, with numerous islands and countless bays and inlets for walleye fishing, boating and swimming. It has a very private, north woods feel. Of all the lakes we have visited over the years, Birch Lake has always been our very favorite get-away destination- and a perfect place for a family cabin!
Enjoy a walk or mountain bike ride on the 2 mile gravel road through the woods. Spend a lazy afternoon fishing or swimming from the dock, or kayaking to the nearby island, followed by a nap in the hammock. Watch the sun set from a bench on the point, or listen to the loons while you sit by the campfire in the evening.
