Lakefront. Three Villas located aprroximately 100 feet from the marina and shoreline with lovely flowered terrace, provides a panoramic, unobstructed lakefront view east to the South Kawishiwi River.
Prime location also is just a few feet to the south beach on Birch Lake and a floating island raft for great fun swimming.
The Villas are ideal for any special occasion for couples: honeymoon, anniversary, birthday, or for a fabulous get-away retreat for any reason.
Larger two bedroom Villas called Aspenwood and Stoneridge Villas are equally fine accommodations for two couples or a family with children. With a fabulous lakefront location and new fire pit handy at the water's edge for those evening bonfires, it doesn't get much better when on vacation "at the lake."
Family reunion groups can rent all three villas and have the best....separate accommodations, but yet close to each other....three kitchens, three living rooms, three bathrooms, and five bedrooms. Can hold up to 12-14 persons comfortably when renting all three Villas. Great outdoor space with picnic tables to accommodate the entire group for dining outside together!

"I was looking online at the resort because I miss it already! We want to thank each and every one of the staff again for the amazing hospitality; we had the honeymoon of a lifetime! It was the most relaxed I have been in a long time! The scenery was fabulous and the staff was so kind and friendly; stayed out of our way and let us enjoy our time alone, but was readily available if needed.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful honeymoon! We'll be back.
