Fantastic Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Birchwood Cabin this weekend. The owners were very helpful when we needed things and made sure we were comfortable during our stay. The cabin was beautiful and very clean. It was relatively close to everything (within about 10 minutes) - the beach, Michigan City, restaurants, train station - which made it the perfect place to call "home" while we were there. We would definitely stay at Birchwood Cabin again!

Cozy cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and really enjoyed the fireplace in the cold evenings. Birchwood Cabin had everything we needed and more. Our only complaints were that the pillows need to be replaced in the bedroom and there were a lot of cobwebs which we realize isn’t uncommon in such a cabin. We would definitely return!

Owner's Response: We have standard firm pillows in the bedroom and additional pillows in the the closet. I will replace them. As for the cobwebs, we do check when the cabin is cleaned. There is one at the very tip of the peak of the ceiling very high up. It reappears regularly and will be removed. We ask our guests to let us kow of any issue immediately. If we are made aware, during your stay, we can see and correct the problem. Thank you.

Cozy, comfortable cabin with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

Great for a relaxing getaway. Nestled in a small, woodsy neighborhood only a 10 minute walk from Lake Michigan. Saw many deer roaming around. The kitchen is well stocked with essential equipment for cooking. Cozy fire with the flip of a switch, comfy couches and an interesting variety of dvds and reading material. It was great!

Vintage retreat with modern comfort

  • 5 of 5

Loved this extremely comfortable, well-equipped, quiet cabin. A perfect retreat to recoup some energy. The wooded location, fireplace and original interior feel like being up north without the longer trek. On a windy day, I could hear the waves of Lake Michigan. Lots of good walks nearby.

The cabin has everything you need for a relaxing weekend getaway. Close to the lake and dunes.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in great condition, fully furnished and very cozy. We especially enjoyed the gas powered fireplace in the living room. We were able to make it to Indiana Dunes State Park and several wineries in under 30 minutes. The owners are very attentive and friendly.

Cozy, Romantic Cabin

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Birchwood Cabin for a romantic weekend getaway. We were not disappointed! It's the perfect setting for two. Nicely remodeled kitchen and bath. The gas fireplace was one of our favorite things-no tending the fire. Nice selection of movies too. Cozy furniture and ample ambient lighting which we really enjoyed.

The 4" of snow we got overnight only enhanced the feeling of being inside a wonderful, romantic cocoon.

We enjoyed the nearby Asian restaurant in New Buffalo which is definitely worth a visit. Good sushi and huge portions.

Only caveat-lots of spider webs. Hopefully the owner has rectified by now. I would plan another getaway there, especially in fall or winter. It's the perfect romantic retreat. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We will make it a point to reach up high to remove any webs and double check low areas. This is the first complaint about webs ever. We would have addressed the issue immediately if we knew about it or precisely where these webs were located. Our policy is for guests to let us know of any issue while they are staying. This allows us to view and correct.
