Birches Condo Reviews

Everything we wanted!

The condo at Giants Ridge is a great location in a beautiful back drop. There is easy access to Golf, Skiing, trails, and the lake. This unit is well kept, inviting, and only a few feet from the beach and resort amenities like paddle boats, canoes, and kayaks. The host is accommodating, responds quickly, and makes sure your stay is great with suggestions for activities and dining in the area. Highly recommend these accommodations in the beautiful north woods!

Cozy spot up north

My husband and I had a quick little getaway up north. This condo really made it feel like we brought our home up north. It was nice and cozy and had everything we could need to accommodate us. Definitely would stay here again! Shawn was also amazing and was very quick to responding to messages especially with our last minute trip.

Perfect for our family

The Birches condo at Giants Ridge was exactly as depicted in the listing. The condo is nicely furnished, very clean and well equipped. The property is private but not isolated, just a few miles from the charming village of Biwabik. Lots of recreation in the area, the lake and beach, a nearby golf course and a multitude of public recreation ares. The "resort" seems to be a favorite with young families with the kids taking full advantage of the beach and lake and the parents enjoying the pool and tennis courts.  We can't wait to come back in the winter and ski!
