I recently read a study conducted by the American Psychology Association (APA), which indicated that people who spend time with their families on vacations were almost 30% less likely to die from a heart-related disorders as compared to people who did not take family vacations. In today’s fast-paced world, people are becoming more and more embedded in their work lives. But family vacations bring the family members together, as one unit. Spending quality time with one’s family is beyond words.One of the benefits of taking family vacations is creating beautiful memories and cementing a bond with people you love. We have many families who make return visits to Birchwood Lodge for family get-togethers each summer. We love to hear adults and kids talking about plans for adventures on the water, going to Skyway Drive-in Movie Theater, having breakfast at favorite places in the county, biking in the state parks, golfing, attending shows and plays at various venues here, or just simply saying that they look forward to reuniting with family and friends they may only see once a year up here. At Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay, we’re all about helping you make plans for your family vacation traditions. If you’ve already stayed with us,  or, if you want to get started on a vacation tradition, give us a call at 866-854-7195, or make a reservation on-line for your getaway with family and friends. We can even arrange for room charter blocks for multiple families/friends. We’ll look forward to your first visit and repeat visits in years to come.
