wonderful quiet cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

it was our 10th anniversary. A quiet weekend away was just what we needed. be right between Michigan City and New Buffalo is perfect. We hit the Casino and the outlet mall. There was lots of great local restaurants. I cooked a few meals, everything I needed was there. And the walk to the beach was beautiful!

We'll defiantly stay again!

A Peaceful Place to stay and quite comfortable

  • 5 of 5

It was a great stay at your cabin. I enjoyed the view of the forest through the windows and the peaceful atmosphere. I would certainly stay there again.

I live in Northern California and the area has a "Tahoe Feel" for sure.

I would enjoy staying longer next time,

Thanks Again,

Tim

One of the most relaxing weekends in one of the most tranquil settings I have ever spent.

I would and will go back again and again, and recommend Birchwood Cabin to anyone who wants

to get away to a country setting that is a reasonable, peaceful and scenic drive from the city

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great unit in a great setting

  • 5 of 5

Owners are true professionals. They were able to provide us extra help even when experiencing a crisis. Great location and we were able to accomplish our goal of relaxing comfortably in a rustic cabin with modern amenities.
