Great place for a family or two couples
Brent T. Jul 2021
We really enjoyed our month long stay at this home. The place was well set up for kids, lots of room, and well cared for. Also, the ability to use the country club, the pool, and the proximity to towns and the beaches was great. Thanks for letting us share your home this summer, we had a great time!

We loved staying in this house so much. It's a beautiful, spacious house with a great layout in a peaceful, wooded neighborhood. Highlights were watching the trees come alive in springtime from the back-facing windows, enjoying a roaring fire, cooking in the open-plan kitchen, and taking long baths in the luxurious bathtub with a view. We'd give it 6 stars if we could.

This was the first time we used Vacasa to book a home. I was a bit skeptical at first but what a relief. First, the house was very neat and clean which is important to us. Next, the house was equipped with everything you need. The landscape of the area around the home is very serene and the neighborhood is full of nice homes. This is definitely a home to rent for a couple, two couples or a large family. Rent this home and enjoy!

This house was clean and spacious. We totally enjoyed staying at this house! We loved the open concept kitchen and great room with all the windows. The views were amazing. Even better than the pictures. Used the fireplace every night. Planning when we can return again.

Perfect setting for relaxation with plenty of shade for hot summer days. Very private homesite with nice open floor plan and with access to the Beechwood Farms facilities made for a wonderful vacation.
Joan P. Jul 2020
Lovely home nestled in the woods! Great open floor plan with plenty of space for entertainment indoor and outdoors. Birch wood Farms offers golf, tennis, swimming, walking trails, and a fine restaurant in the clubhouse.
Reche K. Apr 2020
The house is attractive, well appointed, and comfortable. There was a small issue with plumbing while we were there; however, the managing agent went out of his way to notify us about it ahead of time and to offer us other accommodations. This was very helpful and hassle-free. I would recommend this unit to anywone.
Thomas F. Feb 2020
This house had a great open layout, very clean, comfortable (master king bed was awesome), peaceful wooded setting. We will be back!
Richard P. Oct 2019
The rental was very nice. We were in a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home with a beautiful kitchen and living areas. It was spotless and well maintained. Loved the view into the woods. The instructions for check in and check out were clear and sent promptly. Overall, not only a great place but a great rental experience.
Dorothy S. Oct 2019
This home is in a great location - close to all the activities we wanted to participate in. We took in local golf courses, winery, and breweries....and of course a little shopping.
The home was comfortable and well stocked with everything you would need for a weekend away. The sleeping arrangements were what appealed to us - 2 kings and 2 singles, worked out nicely for 6 adults.
we would definitely consider booking this home again.
John W. Jul 2019
Very spacious, modern and comfortable.

I felt like we were in a special place with the woodland views and deer! The clubhouse dining room and the golf were special.

My wife and I, along with our three teenagers, stayed here over President's Day weekend to get away from the city and do some skiing. After a long drive and arriving around 1am we were greeted by a well lit and beautiful home. We instantly switched to vacation mode. We spent the days at Nub's Nob (10 minute drive) skiing and then the evenings relaxing in this very cozy and roomy home. The house was clean, modern and well stocked with supplies. The beds were amazingly comfortable to sleep in and I loved the fireplace. We cooked breakfast and dinner at the house each day and enjoyed the beautiful views of the snow and woods around us. Very quiet and very relaxing. Management was easy to deal with and the surrounding area is quite beautiful, as well. Harbor Springs and Petoskey are very unique gems. There is something here for everyone. We will definitely come back. It was nice in the winter, but I believe it must be amazing here in the summer. I cannot wait to find out!
Robert . Mar 2017
My wife and 3 children had a wonderful stay. There was room for everyone to relax after skiing all day. We cooked lunch and dinner at the house each day and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The local ski hills are great.
Frank and Jean-Ann . Sep 2016
Overall a good experience. We enjoy the location of the Fairway condos better, but we had health issues so could not rent in advance until we were sure we could make the trip.
Carol . Aug 2016
The property was beautiful, clean and had everything we needed.
Wina . Aug 2016
We loved the property we chose and only wish that we could rent for a longer period.

This was perhaps the best equipped home I have ever stayed in. Beautiful home in a completely private and tranquil setting. Great location convenient to both Harbor Springs and Petoskey. Access to the Birchwood CC facilties is a great bonus.
