22. Studio apartment with koi pond

The lovely Birch Suite is a lower-level Airbnb vacation rental with private entry, a private patio and hot tub all for your use. Located in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood close to Traverse City yet somewhat secluded off the beaten path, this rustic and bucolic spot is extremely private and intimate - perfect for couples on a romantic getaway.

Retire to the comfy and spacious queen bed (with bedding and futon given upon request) amongst the twinkling fairy lights above; the lights give the place a magical and enchanting atmosphere. The comfortable futon couch also opens up as an additional bed if needed, but do note that additional charges will apply.

Apart from the beautiful queen bed, enjoy also the fully-equipped kitchen, flat-screen TV that comes with Netflix, and a beautiful koi pond and garden for you to relax and chill out in.
