Lovely cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Charming, relaxing and well-maintained. Mariya and Ian were a pleasure to work with. I appreciate the extra steps they took when I left something behind in the cabin. Close to beaches and good restaurants. We saw lots of deer and loved walking around looking at all the lovely homes.

Wildlife and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Birchwood Cabin it is just as adorable inside as the photos look. We saw a lot of wild life which is a big reason we rented this cabin and we were not disappointed. We saw many deer while having our morning coffee and then of all things I thought I was seeing things but six wild turkeys go walking by. We had a great time. There are some wonderful winery's in the area and some great restaurants.

The beach is walking distance and the town of New Buffalo is a very short drive away.

If you just want to relax and enjoy nature this is the place for you.

The owner lives nearby and was very helpful and always available to answer any questions you might have.

All in all we had a great time and Lord Willing we will come back.

Thank you so much Mariya for everything.

Charming, Quiet, Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is absolutely charming, clean and very well appointed. The neighborhood is quiet, great to stroll, and a short and pretty walk to the beach. Our hosts were most gracious. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this wonderful place to all interested.

Perfect getaway for couples

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent six nights at this little cabin in the woods and really loved it. It is one of the original cabins in the development, which dates from the 1920s. The owners have done a very sensitive job of restoration, so it feels like a bit of a step into the past but with all the modern conveniences. Pretty much everything one could need is provided, from a full complement of dishes, pots and pans, etc., to beach chairs.

The beach is a 15-minute walk away but we rode our bikes and had fun looking at all the different cottages. We also loved sitting out on the deck in the early mornings and evenings--there are deer and other wildlife in the area, who come to visit.

If you want a lovely, secluded and comfy place to relax, but one which is close to fun things to do, this is the place.

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Stayed five days at the cabin and it was excellent. Everything you need is there and it is a short 10 to 15 minute walk to the lake. Only ate out twice but did Stop 50 Pizza and the Stray Dog Bar and Grill and both were excellent as well. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place, just go and enjoy.

Birchwood Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Birchwood Cabin is where I go to relax, restore and rejuvenate. The cabin is so charming, wonderfully cozy and quiet. The walk to the beach is easy. My family's roots are here; I lived in the area as a child and spent many summers at The Dunes beaches. So in many ways I feel as though I'm coming home.

Birchwood Cabin is my little slice of heaven!
