There is plenty to interest everyone in your group with unique shopping, great restaurants, art galleries, a village grocery store, library, and much more.

The location was great and the scenery was amazing! Everyone had fun!
The stay at Twin Birch was wonderful. The accommodations were excellent and the location on the water with trees with fantastic Fall colors was special.
The owners went out of their way to assure our comfort. Their love and stewardship of the property was evident. Thank you for providing us with some great memories and good times.
It was excellent, everything was as wonderful, thanks!
Twin Birch was a great place for a quick weekend getaway! It is a perfect location, with being so close to Leland and Suttons Bay. And the views from the deck were so beautiful!

A little bit of paradise close to home!

I'm torn! I want to tell everyone I know about this place - this precious gem, but I also want to keep it my own little secret! Twin Birch is truly a home that makes its visitors forget about everything! It is cozy, yet spacious, and offers the most stunning views of a pristine lake. You get to witness the most magical sunsets, and are nestled between Lake Michigan and Lake Leelanau. The home is close to Fishtown and Leland Harbor, as well as many fantastic wineries and vineyards. The home was clean, inviting, and just what we needed for our family vacation. I won't hesitate going back, and can't wait to plan our trip for next year already!

Another Wonderful Vacation at Twin Birch
5 of 5
We love our vacations at this beautiful cottage. It is spacious and accommodating for our two families, and always spotless upon our arrival. The kids take full advantage of the paddle boat, tandem bicycle, and love swimming in the lake. Sunsets on the deck are amazing. We look forward to returning next summer!

Fantastic Vacation Experience!

We have enjoyed our family vacation, at Twin Birch, and plan on returning each summer for as long as the property is available. The property is very well maintained and the layout of the house is perfect for our active family. We appreciate how the house is spotlessly cleaned upon our arrival and all the other amenities included. Because this lovely home is used as the owner's own residence, we feel fortunate to vacation in a spot that feels like home rather than a typical rental. We enjoyed late afternoon cocktails on the dock and decks and are looking forward to August! This vacation rental is a great deal!
Perfect summer vacation!

Twin Birch provided us with the perfect vacation last year, and we are looking forward to a repeat performance this summer! The home is very well maintained, comfortable and inviting for our family. Sunsets are spectacular, and we love sitting around the lakeside fire pit each evening, stargazing and making s'mores. Each morning we enjoyed a paddle boat ride on the lake, using the paddle boat included with the rental. The owners are great to work with, very accommodating, and eager to provide guests with a home away from home. We definitely recommend Twin Birch as the perfect vacation rental!
