About the owner: We were entrusted with the care of Pago in 1998. The adventure in renovating and renting began immediately. Our children have grown up while helping with the care and keeping of Pago. Family and friends have been wonderful in offering advice and support. Through the years we have been blessed to have had many wonderful people as our guests, some we now consider friends, as they have returned many summers. While renovating Pago we have tried to stay true to the spirit in which Pago was intended. It is a place to realize the beauty that surrounds us, to enjoy the outdoors, a cure for 'nature deficit disorder.' We live in the Petoskey area (40 minutes away) and are easily accesible should our guests have any questions or needs. We have actively tried to improve the Pago experiance every year by renovating and listening to our guests suggestions. Having grown up in the immediate area we are able to offer our guests the 'locals' insight on some of the areas attractions and services available. We prefer to talk with potential guests before we agree on the contract. In talking, person to person, with our guests, we feel we can honestly answer questions they may have. However, we hope our guests will be honest in how they present themselves also. We understand that Pago may not be what some are looking for. Vacations are precious time, to be spent with those you love, if Pago is not the right fit, it is better for all to decide that early on. Our goal is for all of our guests to have an enjoyable and relaxing stay at Pago. Please feel free to give us a call if you are interested in renting Pago so that we may answer any questions you might have.
Why the Owner Chose Cross Village: If you are looking for privacy, and to get away from it all, this is the place for you. Should you choose to explore the surrounding area there are many attractions within 20-30 minutes driving time. Pago allows for an intimate get-a-way or time to reconnect with your family without the daily intrusions.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Lake Michigan plays a starring role at Pago. The cottage is very unassuming when you drive up to it. However when you step inside and see the view thru the row of windows overlooking the lake it changes everything. Wood floors and the fieldstone fireplace upstairs give it the'Up North' feeling. Downstairs the tile floors and stone fireplace help it feel clean and cozy. Outside, the beach, dunes and lake are constantly changing. We have tried to allow for many options to enjoy various outdoor locations. There are chairs and tables for your use outside. They are lightweight so that you may take advantage of moving them to where you are most comfortable.
