Lake View Home w/ Expansive Deck, Hot Tub, Game Room

Relax and unwind in this welcoming Birchwood home, perched on a hill with views of Lake Michigan! The wrap-around deck has plenty of room for gathering with friends and family, relaxing with a good book, dining, watching the sunset, or soaking in the private hot tub.

The main-floor great room features sliding doors on three sides for fabulous indoor-outdoor living. Enjoy your morning coffee on the balcony off the third-floor primary suite, and watch from the kitchen window and dining area as wildlife (deer, fox, chipmunks, and more) wander across the wooded hillside out back. The large game room with a wet bar on the lower level is outfitted for cards, games, or puzzles; you could also watch a movie on the big-screen TV and complete the experience with freshly popped popcorn!

If duty calls, you can get some work done in the home office, tucked away in a cubby. Check out the extensive collection of books with custom bookmarks, so you can share your reviews with the next reader. In cooler weather, it's best to curl up by the fireplaces - one on the main level and one in the game room. Three floors of comfortable living await your whole group!

Boyne Mountain and Nub’s Nob, both of which offer downhill skiing, are just 15 minutes away, and downtown Harbor Springs is just three miles away.

We loved our stay in this home. The hot tub was amazing and the deck was our personal favorite part! The basement did have a very musty smell but other than that we were thrilled with our time there.

We enjoyed a long weekend adult getaway at this property with another couple. It was quiet, comfortable and relaxing. The wood burning fireplaces are a real plus as is the hot tub. The view was relaxing as well. We had a chance to snowmobile the local trails and ate dinner at the Willow. The brand-new hair dryers were a real plus! Would definitely recommend this property.

We enjoyed our visit and the place was very comfortable. However, there were no hair dryers (luckily I brought one) and it would help to have extra supplies, such as paper towels. Trevor at Vacasa was a very big help for the few issues we encountered along the way. Loved the location near skiing and Petosky/Harbor Springs. Definitely would stay here again.
Manager response:
Janice, we are thrilled to hear you enjoyed our comfortable home and that our staff promptly attended to any issues that arose. For guests' additional comfort, we are happy to report the homeowner has placed hairdryers in all the bathrooms. We regret any miscommunication regarding consumable supplies. To clarify, we provide our guests with a starter kit of supplies. This includes cleaning supplies, toiletries, and paper products. Once these supplies run out it is the responsibility of our guests to provide any additional supplies throughout the remainder of their stay. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused during your time with us. Thank you for letting us know there is room for improvement and we hope to have the opportunity to host you for another wonderful stay.

A comfortable home with view of Lake Michigan, lovely deck furniture, outdoor hot tub and great library.

Our family loved staying at this home and were disappointed we could not extend our stay. We came to see the Tunnel of Trees and experience the fall colors. The home was an added bonus. The view of the Lake in the morning was breath taking and the space to spread out and relax for our family of 5 was awesome. The added bonus of the hot tub, game room, and fun games made it accommodating and fun for our family. We would love to stay again!

Loved this rental! Second time we were here and plan on coming to this rental next year.only a few issues- the smoke alarms needed batteries and the closet doors in the bedroom with the king bed, need to be cut down as not to interfer with the carpeting.. Almost impossible to open and close doors! We just left them open!
Manager response:
Hi, Lynn! We are so glad you loved your accommodations. The smoke detector batteries have been replaced, and a carpenter has been scheduled to repair the door. Thank you for staying with us!

We had a great winter weekend stay. At first we were hesitant to book because the cleaning fee was very large compared to other options. However, upon arrival, the home was MUCH bigger than we were expecting and was spotless. The photos don't really do justice. Glad we came and would definitely stay again.

We had another outstanding vacation. We are looking forward to our summer rental and wish we could return sooner.

My family stayed labor day weekend and thoroughly enjoyed this enchanting home. The View of the lake from the huge deck is outstanding. Loved the hot tub and Jacuzzi in the master bath made the stay even more relaxing. Great newer marble baths were very nice. Great leather couch and big screen TV's with netflix and cable. Birchwood Golf was over the top and the food and service first rate. I would recommend this rental to families or just couple wanting to relax and enjoy all northern Michigan has to offer.
