About Owner/Property Manager

Our family has lived on Birch Lake for over 50 years and we call it home.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Big Lake Township

This is such a quiet and private location, it is hard to believe that it is so close to the Mpls/St. Paul metro area. We invite our guest to enjoy the gift of this lakefront location that we are so blessed to have.

What makes this House unique

The location of our home is on the southern most tip of the lake and the view is so spectacular it is hard to describe. Everywhere the beauty of nature. The animals and birds that live here create a private wildlife sanctuary for our private enjoyment and walking along the shoreline and relaxing in the screen porch or by the fire truly reminds me what is important.

                                                        Great family retreat at Birch Lake

                                                        Terry G.

                                                        Our family had a lovely time at Birch Lake Lodge. Communication with the owner was easy and very helpful. We were in contact with Elaine as we were driving to the property and she met us there to show us around. The location was beautiful, right on the lake. Since it was February, the lake was frozen and snow covered. The rooms were large and we were comfortable during our stay.

                                                        Private, Waterfront, Well Appointed, SPOTLESS, Cozy

                                                        This property is true to the photos provided. Caretaker was so friendly & knowledgeable about the area. Three large bedrooms on one level are well appointed with comfy KING beds/bedding. A large bath on this level as well. The well appointed kitchen has easy access to the dining room and out to the LOVELY screen porch! The lower level family room is a great place to hang out, watch TV or play board games. A large bedroom with two comfy queen beds is on this level as well. The outdoor space is amazing, large parking area, flat grassy area to the dock/lake, along with a humongous fire pit. This is a hidden gem, so close to the Twin Cities. I would highly recommend this property

                                                        Fantastic private retreat!

                                                        Lynn J.

                                                        We stayed at this fantastic home for a week and were absolutely amazed! Greeted at check in and showed around, very impressed with all of the amenities provided by the hosts. This lake is small and private, very quiet and full of pan fish to the delight of our grandson who visited. It is very clean with a sand bottom and no algae. A family of loons, geese, heron, turtles and even a beaver came to say hello!

                                                        The sunsets were amazing. There is 1,000 feet of lakeshore, plenty of sunny and shady areas for recreation, even cornhole bags!

                                                        The large firepit was great with plenty of firewood on site. A great Weber grill, plenty of patio furniture, swings and of course the huge screened porch to relax in.

                                                        The house was very large, well-appointed, plenty of bedding and towels and A/C for the hot, sticky days.

                                                        We cannot say enough great things about this place and the hosts and hope to return next year!

                                                        Wonderful screen porch!

                                                        We had a relaxing week at this home on a nice lake, only an hour or so from the Twin Cities. Nice sandy lake bottom near the dock, perfect shallow swimming for our grandkids. Caught sunnies off the dock, had a perfect place to hang our hammock. Kitchen is well equipped, with nice quiet dishwasher, master bedroom looks right over the lake, tons of closet space. Everything was spotlessly clean. Would appreciate better lighting over the table in the lower level family room, as we couldn't see well enough to designate that as our jigsaw puzzle table (family tradition). We LIVED in the screen porch. Good communication with owners. We'll be back!

                                                        Very quiet and relaxing!

                                                        We were in for my sons wedding in the Twin Cities and found this house just 1 hour north. Plenty of room for our family with relatives coming in and out at various times. Perfect lake for tubing, fishing, or just relaxing in water by the dock. Enjoyed our stay very much and plan to return next year for a couple of weeks next time! Thanks for sharing your home!
