Only 15 min from Boyne Highlands. Bed was a little lumpy but the check in process was simple even tho we arrived after the office closed. Very nice staff. They upgraded our room for our anniversary!

Nice Quiet Place

Posted Jan 7, 2018
Pros: Staff and common room.
Cons: Beds are a bit soft.
Location: Skiing, State Park, Biking. Harbor Springs.
The Birchwood Inn is a nice, quiet place to stay. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They have a great common room with furniture and a big fireplace. Very nice place to just sit, read and relax.

Ski Trip

Posted Jan 4, 2018
We went for a long weekend to ski at Nubs and Highlands. Hotel was about 10 minute drive with snowy roads. This is a warm and cozy place. Don’t come here and expect modern admenities. Just expect clean rooms, friendly staff and a old school warm feeling. I would go back!

Seasoned hotel/inn

Posted Jan 3, 2018
Pros: Definately the staff and the location!!!!! I loved the fire place in the main lodge it was a beautiful room with homey comfortable furniture.
Cons: Plugs for the tubs. I like a hot bath but I had to use my wash cloth it still worked fine although.
Location: See above the is an awful lot to do if you can't find in anything than your not looking hard enough! Skiing, cross country skiing, snow mobiling etc.
I found the Birchwood inn to be economical and an extremely beautiful location. The hotel is older and has a certain nostalgia that makes you feel welcome and at home immediately which in part is due to the friendly staff members. I usually stay at the off the beaten path places, the special finds, be it Florence, Athens and now Bay Harbor. I like the fact that there are fifties style bathrooms (well maintained) with nice tubs and the rooms are quiet and peaceful. Every two rooms have their own entrance room (mudd room) for snow covered boots or skiis or whatever. There is a wonderful cafe, brewery and vineyard (with cross country skiing) about a 1.5 down the road and the town of Bay Harbor that you drive thru is upscale with many great restaurants and bars. Skiing is only 6 miles away at the wonderful Boyne Highlands or Nubs Nob. This is a wonderful find of a place not to be missed with small herds of inquisitive deer wandering here and there as you drive under the tunnel of trees, simply beautiful and inexpensive!

We appreciated it all, except that the breakfast was served on/with plastic/not reusable plates, cutlery and cups and that internet service was very weak or none at all in room 33. No wifi either.

Nice hotel

Posted Oct 26, 2017
Pros: The price and location
Location: It is on the Tunnel of Trees, good access to surrounding towns.
The hotel was older and cozy as I expected. Good heat especially on such a windy and cold night. The front desk personnel were friendly and welcoming.

Good location

Posted Oct 23, 2017
Pros: Nice location.
Cons: Top of my list, clean the carpet.
Had a good stay. We don't look for perfection because we basically only sleep in the room. The room could use some upgrades and the was in dire need of cleaning.

Staying at Birchwood

Posted Oct 23, 2017 on Orbitz
Location: Nearby to Charveloux and that had places to eat and see. Also GoodHeart which is very tiny but worth the visit. Harbor Springs is near the harbor.
Staying at Birchwood was a great experience for us. Loves the courtyard and the fire pit which we used both nights of our stay. The sheets were very soft and comfortable. The breakfast was great! A variety of items which filled us up for the morning and the room in which we ate had a great view of the property. Quiet nights rest.No noise at all from another room or people. Will be back again. Very pretty piece of Michigan to explore.
