Tomah, Wisconsin
No weekends in summer months: June, July, and August are one week minimum rentals only. There are four homes/cabins on Birch Lake,Tomah, Wi. All four are listed on Flipkey.<BR><BR>Come unwind in a cozy getaway nestled in a grove of whispering pines and white birch. The beautiful lake is only steps away from the front door. <BR><BR>Step inside to a spacious great room. The solid warmth of wood paneling and oak kitchen cabinets give a "nestling in" feeling, as do the comfortable couches and furnishings. Beautiful views from every window and patio door fill the room. <BR><BR>If you had a long trip and it's night time, cozy up to the fireplace and watch TV on the large screen, or perhaps you'd rather "rough it" and roast s'mores on an open campfire pit. <BR><BR>...

Rented the Ranch over the week of July 4th. Booking the property was simple. The owner was quick to respond to email and took our reservation over the phone. He sent out a packet of information quickly as well. Asked him specifically if the lake was clear to which he responded "yes". This was not true at all. So, we...

Management response:

Wow!...sounds like we can't do anything right. I can't imagine how we get so many repeat customers. If you look at the many reviews on Birch Lake you will see that almost all of them are 4 to 5 stars. Those who are uncomfortable with nature and the beauty and peace and quiet that comes with it would be well...

Hot tub never got hot enough... Lake deck was down to steep of a hill to get...

Management response:

After these guests left we also noticed the odor. It was not septic gas. One of the pilot lights on the kitchen stove had blown out but they never told us about it while they were here. They told us about the hot tub and it was fixed immediately. I called later to check and they said it was fine....
