  • What a peaceful spot!


    Stunning location, beautiful home, peaceful views and a great getaway! Was a great stay for a couples getaway but would have been an easy home to share with multiple families too. Stocked with everything you need. The hosts have set this up so well!

  • Beautiful location and house


    The location is beautiful! The house is big and its a great amenity to be able to park in the garage. The house is supplied with everything you need for the kitchen and there is a good selection of games. There were only 4 of us but the place could easily handle a family vacation of 10-12.

  • A Special Thanksgiving


    Our family came together from Iowa and Minnesota for Thanksgiving at Birch Cove. We wanted to do something special and fun as our mom had recently passed. What a beautiful home to stay in; absolutely perfect. We enjoyed going to the downtown Christmas parade, shopping thrift stores, Lake Carlos Winery and finding scenic trails to walk every morning.

    From the living room and kitchen windows we spotted a fox getting a drink of water from the lake and an eagle flying overhead. Amazing!

    Thanks for giving our family such a beautiful place to create wonderful memories.

  • A most marvelous experience!


    We truly enjoyed our stay in this lakeside home.

    It was a great getaway for those of all ages.

    This lovely home was very clean, well maintained, and had everything we could have desired for comfort, relaxation and having fun filled days!

    The host was easily accessible if we had any questions and sent a text after we arrived to make sure everything was in order and looking good for our stay.

    Thanks again!
