My husband and I stayed in Cabin #5 and his parents in Cabin #1 over Memorial Day weekend 2015. The amenities are pretty much the same in both. The view of Lake Superior from Cabin #1 was gorgeous and it felt a little more spacious than ours because of the vaulted ceiling. The beds are a little small - full... More

We stayed here three nights with our two kids who are 10 and 12. From the moment we got here the owners made us feel right at home. The cabins are dated but kept up in good working order. They built their own beach which is lovely. We would definitely plan on coming here again. With that said, the owners... More

I spent three nights here with friends in September, 2014. We stayed in Cabin #2, which was perfect -- spotlessly clean cabin, comfortable beds, nice little kitchen, and a fabulous view of the lake, right out our front window! It was an short drive to Tahquamenon Falls and to the Whitefish Bay Bird Observatory. I would very happily stay there... More

Just spent three nights at the Birchwood Resort. The cabins were clean, comfortable, well appointed with dishes, blankets and all essentials (except towels; bring your own). Owner was helpful and the view of Lake Superior phenomenal!!! Our cabin was just a few yards from the lake.

We recently spent two nights at the Birchwood resort in Paradise. The cabin was clean and well furnished. The beds were comfortable. The owners were very hospitable. The resort was quiet and comfortable and we felt very safe there. The sunrise view over lake superior was beautiful. I would recommend highly recommend this resort.

If you need to slow down and relax to a wood burning stone fireplace this is it. We enjoyed our privacy, not need to bring extras. Just bring your personal necessessties and groceries and you are all set. Wood is available for purchase, and you will find the cabins or the resort hotel squeaky clean, perfect spot to stop and...

We stayed for three nights in cabin #11 while on a week long trip to the up. Steve and Kathy were great hosts and at $85 per night were only interested in making our stay a good one. The view of whitefish bay from the resort was priceless and I found myself walking down to see the sunrise and sunset... More

My husband, myself and 3 adult kids rented cabin #8 and stayed 4 nights-5 days. We didn't want to leave! Harmon's Birchwood Resort is very close to Tahquamenon Falls, the Brewery, and Brown's restaurant, which has the best fresh whitefish! You can't ask for a better location in this Whitefish Point location right on Lake Superior. We used our cabin... More

Beautiful and comfortable. Brand new high-quality mattresses. Cabin 5 perfect: 2 bedrooms, both with dressers and clothes racks for hanging clothes. Two large fans to keep breezes circulating, plus central heat in case it gets cold. Kitchen has it all: coffee maker, toaster, microwave, cast iron skillet and steel pots and pans, all utensils, dishes and wine glasses, etc. Table... More
