Fantastic lakefront cottage on Lake Michigan with direct access, to a very private beach. It is a beachcombers dream. Each summer evening the sun sets directly in front of you. This location offers you the seclusion of being in the woods and the lake as your view. Our home offers easy access to swimming, kayaking, hiking, biking and boating. Shopping and sightseeing to popular attractions like Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Mackinaw City, Mackinaw Island and Charlevoix and points beyond, are all well worth the trip. The Upper peninsula is a popular area to visit, starting with your trip over the Mackinaw Bridge. 2 hours from the bridge are the Soo Locks and Canadian border. Traverse City is approximately 2 hours Southwest by car. Traverse City airport allows for more choices of airlines and flights. Pellston airport is the most convenient airport allowing for 30 minute travel to the house. Come enjoy the beauty and serenity that our home has to offer.

Cottage respite in Cross Village
Our first-ever family vacation at a cottage exceeded all expectations! Absolutely loved the cottage, the scenery, the wildlife, the myriad of activities and most of all the peaceful, natural surroundings. Can't say enough good things about this place.
We loved this place! We had 2 families (total of 4 adults & 3 teenagers) and we had plenty of room. All maintenance issues listed in a previous review have been dealt with. Bedrooms are good size. Living room is comfortable. View from living room & deck is outstanding! We enjoyed every single sunset even from the comfort of the living room on the chilly evenings (which were rare & unseasonable). Kitchen table and kitchen are large & accommodating. Very quiet and secluded. Neighbors are close but so much forest & foliage that you'd never guess it. Day-trips were easy to plan. Landlord was great to work with. Great communication-highly recommended. We'll definitely put this on our list for return trips!
Great place to get away from it all!!!
Absolutely loved this place!! Want to say thank-you to grace and family for sharing their wonderful beach house w us!! We had so much fun watching the many humming birds go crazy! Buzzed our heads a few times! Saw our beautiful eagles again! Such regal birds!! Loved sitting on deck w our wine and atching sun set. Boys enjoyed the two kayaks as well! Peaceful and quiet place....thanks again for sharing! We will be back!!! Bob and Cindy K.
Just a beautiful property.
over all a grate place to be . every thing you would need is there. a beautiful beach , very quite at night the stars are unbelievable. Grate for family or romantic getaway .
We just rented over the week of July 4th, 2011. We were amazed at how great this place was! Not only was everything clean, but it had all the ammenities, including comfy beds, plenty of room, Direct TV, free long distance, WI-FI, a nice grill, and nice pots and pans!
The view of this home is absolutely stunning and the deck is huge! There are views from all over the house and the pictures on the website really don't do it justice.
We are people who have very high expectations and they were all exceeded!
Another amazement - we felt like we were on a deserted island - there was no one around, no hustle or crowds - just the relaxing vacation we needed. We biked (the number of great biking spots are too many to count with amazing views all over), kayaked the bay (3 provided in our house), walked the beach and just chilled on our private beach all week. We were so sad to go but will definitely be renting again!
Lakefront home in Cross Village
We are repeat customers of Homeaway and we've found that you do an inadequate job of screening vacation homes for price, value and description. Though this home had a spectacular view of the lake on the beach, we were not satisfied with the value of home compared to the price we paid. We've rented similar houses at half the price and were more than happy with the facilities so we'll no longer rent the more expensive homes. The basic description of the home was satisfying and we really enjoyed our vacation due to the location and the views, but we were more than disappointed with the following:
Stairway to the beach was dilapidated and unsafe.
The sand beach was covered with large rocks.
The spiral staircase to the second floor was loose and jittery.
The second story windows and and doorway screens fit inadequately and allowed bugs in at night.
The second bathroom had a broken toilet seat and unfinished floor.
The kitchen pots and pans were dirty and worn out.
The was food left in the refrigerator and pantry.
The spice rack contained expired spices in greasy containers.
Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. All of your concerns regarding the steps, kitchen and bathroom have been addressed by either repairing or replacing these items.
It is also customary for all opened food to be removed as part of the thorough cleaning that is done between renters. It appears this was overlooked for your visit and has been addressed with the cleaning staff.
Obviously, we cannot control the weather, the level of the lake and many other factors that effect the amount of rocks at any given time. Our family has visited this house every summer for 18 years and the amount of beach/rocks varies each year. There were a lot of rocks this past year and was reflected in reviews for other properties in this area as well.
We are very glad you enjoyed your vacation and appreciate you bringing these items to our attention.
