Close your eyes and picture a place to relax at in Northern Michigan. Cozy chairs, fieldstone fireplace, tranquil courtyard. A place with history, wood beams, and lodge decor. Throw in warm hospitality and you will find yourself at Birchwood Inn.
Built in the early sixties as a corporate retreat for New Era Potato Chips, Birchwood Inn has been carefully preserved by the Innkeeper with the lodge aura intended by the builders. We welcome individual travelers and group gatherings alike. The Inn is perfect for family reunions, destination weddings, seminars, and of course corporate retreats. The philosophy of the original builder, comfortable surroundings fosters friendships, is deeply held by the Innkeeper of today.
There are many things to see and do in our neck of the woods, like exploring local beaches for Petoskey Stones, visiting resort communities including Mackinaw, playing a round of golf, or going on a guided kayak adventure.
The best part however, is returning to the comfort of Birchwood Inn. Take some time to lounge by the pool in summer or sit in front of a roaring fire in winter. Fall is a colorful time to visit, the Inn is located at the beginning of the "Tunnel of Trees," a famous scenic drive along Lake Michigan. Prefer springtime trillium and morel mushroom hunting? We have that covered too. Whichever the season, the place to relax and enjoy your visit to Northern Michigan is Birchwood Inn.
