About Us

Nestled on the crystal-clear blue waters of Elk Lake in Northern Michigan, White Birch Lodge is a true escape from the distractions of modern life. This beautiful lakeside retreat, with over 60 years of tradition, pays homage to the era of authentic simplicity and quality time with loved ones.

During the summer months White Birch Lodge is a family-friendly, all-inclusive resort welcoming guests from around the world come to enjoy a unique, classic vacation experience. From adventure to relaxation, the weekly summer vacation package includes everything you need to enjoy your time completely. Three delicious meals served daily means no grocery shopping, cooking or cleaning! Our MasterCraft boats pull waterskiing, wakeboarding, and tubing every day while the staff provides instruction and encouragement for new skiers. The Kids’ Program gives parents’ freedom to relax and enjoy, often spending their time waterskiing, playing tennis, or catching up with friends and family.

When we aren’t running our summer all-inclusive program many of our accommodations are available to rent long or short term. Depending on the season guests are welcome to bring boats, and use beach and other amenities on the grounds.

In the Spring and Fall we are a destination wedding venue and host celebrations for families of all shapes and sizes!

A short bike ride, walk or drive will take you into charming Downtown Elk Rapids. Elk Rapids is centrally located about 20 miles north of Traverse City and 30 miles south of Charlevoix.
