    About this property

    Birch Landing - Family Friendly Cottage on Lake Paradise

    Next to the waters edge at the end of a wooded trail, sits our quant little log cottage called Sunset Shore. It soaks in the breeze off Lake Paradise and rests in peace next to the quiet Stony Point Nature Preserve. This Preserve is a nature lovers paradise with a trail system that helps you hike it all. A stone's throw lands you in the Carp Lake Township Park - a historic park nestled in the forest. Its tiny, but the swing set by the water is all you need to enjoy the serenity. Moving closer to the cottage you'll find the dock with lots of water crafts to explore the lake with. Bring a pole, fish off the dock, or take a kayak out for a time you'll never forget. Now inside the cottage, you'll meet the comfort of white-knotty pine everywhere. Pine adds a rustic and cozy ambience that can't be beat while reading by the stone fireplace. Vintage and homemade decorations add a dash of local charm. Guests love that they feel like they're camping here without having to "rough it". You'll find a kitchen with modern appliances making homemade meals a pleasure. An updated bathroom with elegant tile and modern fixtures. Even a king size bed so youll never feel cramped while sleeping. There's no need to go to the park when you can live on one. Our guests always feel right at home here. Cottage amenities include: Boat Dock Paddle boat & Kayak Playground in the woods Stone fireplace Open stone fire pit for bonfires (cut wood provided) Picnic table Weber charcoal barbecue grill Pots, pans, dishes, and utensils King sized bed and sleeper sofa Blankets, pillows, and sheets Flat screen TV with DVD and a stereo Lake Paradise, while being quite weedy (watch the boat prop boys) has terrific fishing. You'll find Walleye (stocked), Bass, Perch, Pike, and Bluegill. The lake bottom has a gradual slope and is ideal for small children to swim. Things to do and places to go: -Take a ferry boat to historic Mackinaw Island. Make sure to buy plenty of delicious fudge! -Pack a picnic lunch and spend time on the miles of beach of Wilderness State Park. -Spend the day shopping and/or have lunch in Harbor Springs and Petoskey. -A short drive across the famous Mackinaw Bridge allows you to see the beauty of God's Country -Spend an afternoon golfing or play a game of tennis in the village close by. -Relax at the cottage with a good book while the others fish or swim. -The area has many country/lakeside dining spots. -At the end of the day, enjoy breathtaking sunsets from your own sun room. Later, roast marshmallows over the bonfire at the lake's edge. * A special note to our early spring and late fall guests. It's cold during the shoulder months so please prepare. Our cottages are cute, but they're not equipped with central heating and cooling. You'll enjoy the cozy fireplace and we have a small electric heater but that's it. It's chilly so bring a sweater, a warm blanket, and enjoy the fall colors!

    peace and quiet

    This was a great property. It was exactly as portrayed in pictures and description. Off the beaten path but not far from civilization. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here. Highly recommended!

    5/5 Excellent

    Very relaxing small cottage on a remote road, secluded and private. Great views of the lake!

    We had a wonderful 5 nights at the cottage. Weather had turned cool and crisp. Being from Calif we really enjoyed the rain, wind, cold nights and a real autumn season! The bed was super cozy and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. We used the BBQ many times. The property is beautiful - very private and secluded. We took a long hike in the woods nearby, and tried fishing from the dock and shore. There were many boats available, paddle, row boat, kayaks and windsurfers. The beautiful stone fireplace and wood provided made for cozy evenings. Cannot wait to return some day!

    5/5 Excellent

    Relaxing, quiet, peaceful, comfortable.

    We stayed for 2 weeks, took day trips, and enjoyed the lake, fish were also caught ! The location for seeing northern Michigan attractions is perfect, including easy trips to the U.P. This is the place to unwind and chill out. Everything is "as advertised" clean and very well appointed, when the winds blow, open all the windows then the back door, the breeze blows through the cottage front to back, mother natures air conditioner. James and Peggy were great, they were available for any needs or local info you may want. We would love to make a return visit in the future. We have rented cottages several times in the past and my wife and I put this one at top of our list.

    5/5 Excellent

    Quiet Family Getaway

    We stayed with our two children for a fun-filled relaxing week-long vacation. The cabin was well appointed and comfortable, the property was beautifully maintained, the view was stunning, and we were sad to leave. We hope to return next year.

    4/5 Good

    Great Weekend!!

    We enjoyed the rental immensely. Peggy made sure we had everything including firewood, kayaks, row boat, picnic tables and even a great trail in the woods. The lake was very quiet . The cabin has been newly remodeled, keeping it new but still maintaining the period design. All in all we had a great time, would recommend to anyone who wants to get away from the normal grind.
