Birchwood Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Serendipity Cabin sits high on the bluff of Birch Lake with a beautiful sunset view of the water. Birchwood is the BlueGill capitol of the world and avid fisherman sneak into the cove near our dock often, as it has the reputation for being a sweet spot on the lake. Birch Lake is part of the Chetac chain of lakes, so you can enjoy the excitement of Big Chetac, but the tranquility, great swimming, kayaking and pontooning on Birch Lake. Fish right off the dock or just sit and enjoy the eagles, loons and other wildlife. Boat in/out of nearby stops for your beverage of choice or a homemade burger. The sandbar on Big Chetac is a traditional stop for boaters enjoying a nice cruise and wanting to cool off in the clean lake water. Head back to the cabin after a day on the water, or a day on the ATV trails and enjoy a bonfire, gourmet meal off the grill and luxurious amenities and ultra comfortable beds. Winter months are also a treat in the North woods with Christie Mountain skiing and tubing only 20 minutes away. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing are all available in the nearby area, many trails only minutes from the cabin. Generous off road parking makes it easy for boats and trailers. Central air conditioning, full laundry, and all the conveniences of home with a vacation feel. Take advantage of the screened in porch for morning coffee or late night chats when the fire has gone out. Amazing cedar outdoor shower for warm fun on cool nights and cleaning off kids and dogs after boating and swimming. Small fenced yard for your dog so he doesn't run off chasing the deer. Ed's Pit Stop and downtown Birchwood offer great restaurants and fishing license and anything else you could need or want just 1 1/2 mi away. If you want a rainy day adventure, head to Hayward's wonderful shopping area and enjoy homemade fudge and yummy treats. We hope you make great memories at Serendipity Cabin with your friends and family, enjoy our lovely home responsibly. Thank you. (driveway contract for county plowing, you won't get snowed in/out)

My husband & I have stayed in quite a few VRBO rentals and I have to say this was one of the cleanest ones ever. We recently stayed in a luxury condo in Big Sky that had amazing views but the windows were so dirty that it kind of ruined the effect. So, I was extremely happy that all of the glass doors and windows were so nice and clean. The cabin itself was perfect with plenty of room. It was only two of us with our two small dogs. The fenced in area was such a great amenity. It was a great set up with plenty of kitchen items. Things in Birchwood were a little slow since the season was over but plenty of places open near Hayward & Spooner. We loved The Fireside in Hayward we had an excellent meal and worth the drive. We also did a day trip to the Apostle Islands which wasn't a bad drive and another day trip up to Duluth and Two Harbors. Fishing was a little slow but I think it's just that time of year. My husband caught blue gill & perch on the Chetek side.

Beautiful week

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Serendipity was perfect! Upon our arrival we were pleased to find the cabin exactly as described and matching the pictures. We felt right right at home and LOVED enjoying the pretty lake view from the screened in porch with our morning coffee. We were a party of 4 adults, 3 kids and a dog with plenty of room to enjoy each others company or have privacy. The side fenced in area was key for our dog and us! Perfect firepit area to enjoy s'mores which we did most nights. There is also a big table on the deck overlooking the lake that we sat at for meals or playing games. Karna, the owner, was very helpful and answered any questions we had promptly. We also went to "The Angry Minnow" for lunch upon her recommendation in Hayward one day and we loved it. Very happy with our stay, the comforts of the cabin and the beautiful surroundings. Looking forward to next year!

Great Northwoods cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful visit with my brother and his wife and two kids staying on Birch Lake at Serendipity. A spacious cabin more like a home, fully furnished with all you need for a Northwoods getaway. I grew up vacationing in northern Wisconsin so this was a trip back in time and Birch Lake did not disappoint. Great fishing, beautiful scenery and campfires at night. There were a lot of activities we did not get around to doing so there is plenty of reason to return!

Serendipity Cabin was amazing!!! I enjoyed so much of the tranquility and charm of this cabin. Mornings on the screen porch with coffee and a good book ... the feeling of tranquility with the birds singing and soft breezes blowing... I loved every minute of it. The cabin had everything that we needed to make for one of the best weeks ever! Thanks!

The best winter vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Serendipity! We spent marvelous 3 days with our girls (9 and 7 years old) and my parents. Everything about the cabin and the area was so beautiful...the cabin has a deck that takes you to the lake...For the first time in my life I got to walk on a frozen lake!! a huge excitement for us, "city slickers". The cabin was very clean, cozy and comfortable. I loved that the owners have my kids enjoyed playing with their toys and watch their favorite movies. They thought about everything...every time we were thinking "oh, I wish we brought xxx" there is was in the cabin! We cannot wait to go back in the summer and see how beautiful the place is when its all green and we can take the boat fishing.
