Cozy Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Birchwood Cabin is wonderful - Mariya and Ian are gracious hosts. The cabin is clean, cozy, comfortable and quiet. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and dining in. There are plenty of linens as well as gear for the beach - chairs, an umbrella and a small cooler. I really enjoy walking to the beach - Stop 39 is an easy 15 minute walk from the cabin - which is seldom crowded. There's as much or as little to do as you want - sightseeing, shopping, visiting wineries, hiking, spending time at the beach, dining out. Deer are seen every day. The cabin is a wonderful respite from everyday life where you can unwind and recharge. This was my third visit to the cabin and I look forward to returning next summer!

Perfect girls getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderful. This was a little getaway for a mother and 2 adult daughters to reconnect. it was so perfect.

Our stay was during the off season so the whole neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful. the walk to the beach only takes about10-15 min. But the homes along the way are great eye candy. The beach is clean, and beautiful with all Its smooth rocks washed up on shore. We really enjoyed picking out heart shaped rocks for souvenirs. At sunset we walked to the beach to watch the sun go down behind the faded outline of the Chicago skyline. Michigan City, was great as well. Lots to do and see and eat and lots of great shopping.

The property is well represented on the website. The cabin was very clean, comfortable and well maintained with modern updates.....even the trundle and day bed were comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook dinner both nights and breakfast in the morning. Each morning you could see the deer walk past the windows and all day long the squirrels provide lots of entertainment. The cabin is well stocked with blankets pillows, towels and amminities. Having WiFi available was very convenient and there were lots of great DVD's available. Maryia (who lives close by) was a great hostess as well. We didn't need anything extra but I have no doubt that she would not have hesitated to provide us with whatever we might have forgotten. She even gave us a little history on the cabin itself which only helped us appreciate it even more.

The rates are extremely reasonable, considering you pay about the same for a good hotel room these days. I highly recommend this cabin for couples, or a girls getaway.

Prefect get-a-way!

Perfect cabin for a weekend away. Quiet area with lots to do in the surrounding area. However, just relaxing in the cozy cabin was awesome, too! Clean and comfortable. Loved the fireplace! Booking and checking in were easy. Thanks Mariya! Looking forward to returning soon :)

Birchwood Cabin Revisited

  • 5 of 5

Mariya and Ian - Thank you once again! 2015 was my second visit to Birchwood Cabin and was as good, if not better, than my first visit the summer before! Your cabin is charming, cozy, comfortable and well-appointed. The beach umbrella was a welcome addition, and was used every day! Birchwood Cabin is an oasis in the woods and an easy walk to the shore of Lake Michigan. It's a big slice of heaven to me. I can't wait to return!

Cabin at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Birchwood Cottage was everything you could want from a cabin at the lake. It is very well appointed and comfortable; the rooms are large; the fireplace is lovely and inviting; and the kitchen is perfect. We totally enjoyed the peace and quiet-neither the deer, chipmunks, or turkeys made any kind of unruly noise. It was perfect for us to be able to enjoy our daughter's family (4 min away), and yet have some privacy for ourselves. We will definitely plan a repeat visit.
