2017 was our 11 straight year we have taken our extended family of children and grandchildren to vacation at White Birch Lodge ( not counting the years a long time ago when our children were small). WBL is a truly wonderful family resort. No cooking required! There is a wide asso

My wife and I and our two 7 year olds had to decide between Disney, Myrtle Beach, the Bahamas, and a little known all inclusive resort in Northern Michigan. Based solely on Trip Advisor reviews we chose White Birch Lodge for something completely different. Let me assure you, it

Is this a good destination for a snowmobile vacation in winter?
"Vary from condos (air con and tvs) to cabins with screened in porches to dormitories with shared bathrooms. Most rooms have a small fridge."
"WBL offers a variety of options from lodge rooms to condos. Some stand-along cabins, too."
"If you do not need a kitchen, forgo the kitchen option. There are very quaint cottages with screened in porches, which I envied all vacation long. Opt for these if possible!"
"talk with the staff they will help select a room or suite that works for you"
"Rooms in the original lodge are great as are the condos. Conrad house does not get the best air flow. The small cinder block cabins are very basic, but have a screen porch, nice for sitting out at night. You go to WBL for the fun, not for fancy rooms."
