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.
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.
I am very thankful that I found the Birchwood Cabin: very welcoming owner, Mariya Steele; great location; terrific cabin with everything needed! Just 5 minutes to Al's (a large & complete grocery store; I ate in.) However, I know that there are lots of great restaurants in the Michigan City, New Buffalo & surrounding area. While my stay was short (only 3 days), I totally enjoyed the rest. I hope to come back again in 2017 -- hopefully, more than once. [Just one more comment: I am very thankful for the "VRBO system", but please reduce the "email commercials". When I am able to take some time off (which isn't often), I'll let you know. Thank You!
Perfect weekend getaway. Mariya was wonderful and the cabin was awesome. The quiet neighborhood was great for walking around on a Fall evening and the beach was beautiful. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Will probably be back!
We had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful peaceful cabin for a couple days. We enjoyed the walk on the beach of Lake Michigan and the near by casinos in the evenings. Our next visit we would like to take the train into Chicago for the day! I have already highly recommended this rental to family & friends!
