The Birch

Myself, my two children and both of their families with young children, total of 10, found the Birch fantastic. It was roomy enough such that the kids could spread out on the two stormy days and have a lot of fun. The whole place had a homey feel. It was super clean when we got there too. It's in a great location with a spectacular view. We could visit hiking trails, Crystal Lake, or downtown Frankfort within a very few minutes. Bob and Dawn were great at answering all my questions We are definitely up for going back!

So happy that you enjoyed your time in Northern Michigan and Lake Bluff Preserve! We look forward to having you stay with us again!

We stayed at the birch house. The house was so clean and literally had all the equipments you would need. The views also were spectacular and the bonfire at night was definitely amazing with the moon reflecting on the water. Their customer service is wonderful and the property managers will reply back so fast. We really loved our stay and highly reccomend it! Thank you lake bluff preserve property managers for making our stay wonderful. Yara

Family reunion

Our family rented all three properties at this location. We worked out very nice, since we had about 30 people. Our house had plenty of bedrooms and baths for our 13 guests. The views were nice, and in a good location, for hiking, golf, kayaking, biking, dune climbing, & shopping. Everyone found something to do. We had strong winds two nights, but the last night had a bonfire. We all had a great time.
