Older place, but full of life. Great location. Room, grounds and pool were all clean and well maintained. Great spot to stay if you are visiting the area. M-119 is such a beautiful drive. Nice continental breakfast and staff were friendly. Would definitely stay here again, and it is quite affordable!

Room Tip: Rooms around the back are a little more private.

The hotel is rundown and poorly maintained. Our toilet barely flushed and the water in the shower went from scalding hot to freezing cold in seconds. The carpet in our room was stained and the room smelled musty and moldy.

After a great day of skiing with my adult daughter at Boyne Highlands, we checked in at the lovely Birchwood Inn. It was after dinner . We went to the great room at the main building and watched a beautiful sunset over Little Traverse Bay. Relaxing by TV corner for some hoops and a hot cup of tea. I could stretch out on the couch and enjoy the evening. For our family , our lives are so hectic, it is lovely to have a quiet atmosphere and a good night's rest. Ready after the complimentary breakfast to hit the slopes again!!! Thank you to the friendly staff also!

If you're looking for pet-friendly accommodations this is a good fit. As others have mentioned the Inn itself is outdated yet clean. We had great help from the ladies working the evening shifts. Don't forget to bring a hair dryer as those are not supplied.

I have stayed in Petoskey and Harbor Springs area many times to ski Boyne and Nubs but had never heard of Birchwood Inn. My last visit a friend recommended this quaint hotel. It is not a modern hotel, but that is the charm of Birchwood Inn. The room/ bed was very comfortable and the continental breakfast in the lodge was basic but very good.
The lodge has a fire burning, with comfortable seating. Will definitely stay at Birchwood Inn again.
