Our sunset chalet offers a quiet setting in the middle of 60 acres. Sit on the deck while enjoying panoramic views over Lake Michigan including Beaver Island continuing north towards Wilderness State Park, four lighthouses and the sanddunes in the Upper Penninsula. Wildlife such as deer, wild turkeys, cranes, eagles and many other birds are abundant in the area. The dark sky is perfect for star gazing and not far from the "Dark Sky Park" near Mackinaw.
The chalet has a complete kitchen, full bath and a spacious living room with a stone fireplace on the main floor. The upstairs has two bedrooms each with a queen bed, a sitting room with twin trundle beds, a full bathroom and walk out deck.
Cross Village has a local beach with swimming and a small boat launch. More public beaches are located to the north at Sturgeon Bay with miles of beach and hiking trails which include the North Country Trail. Cross Village is located at the north end of the Tunnel of Trees on M-119. There are two nice restaurants near the village, Legs Inn and the Crow's Nest. Cross Village is only 20 minutes away from Harbor Springs and Mackinaw City. A day trip to Mackinac Island is a favorite for visitors. Boyne Highlands, Maple Ridge and Hidden River are available for golf.
This is a great place for hiking , biking, swimming or just relaxing and curling up to read a book.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Glorious tranquil setting
This lovely A- frame has all the comforts of home and a fantastic wrap- around deck for viewing sunsets over Lake Michigan and watching wildlife in the open acreage around the cabin. It's beautiful and quiet...the perfect place for doing absolutely nothing. Ideal for outdoor activities like hiking, water sports, and more. Mackinac Island was a great outing. Then back to peace and quiet. Idyllic.
So glad you were able to relax and enjoy our quiet get away.
So quiet and peaceful
Beautiful visit to a favorite area. Sandhill cranes, deer and fawns, great blue heron, frogs,... and inside, everything to make your stay easy. Beautiful sunsets right from the deck, over endless fields, hills, and forests. Close to beaches with so few people, and lots of pretty rocks.
Perfect vacation rental. Fantastic views
The chalet was full equipped for all of our needs. The views from all of the rooms were breathtaking. We looked forward to our daily visits from a pair of wild cranes and the deer. The location allowed us to take Day trips without much travel time to Mackinaw, Harbor Springs and Petosky. The owners truly have thought of everything to make your visit enjoyable.
Natural setting, wildlife, views of Lake Michigan sunset & stars. Close, convenient & secluded.
I have invited many friends there and all love it.
Heaven away from home
The owners had absolutely everything covered and were great to work with. The view is amazing and the wildlife is incredible. Close enough to enjoy activities with our little kids yet far enough away that it wasn't like you were with tourists all the time either.
Thank you. We are glad you had a good time. Peace and quiet are a treasure to be enjoyed when you return from the many activities the area has to offer.
Our Home Away from Home
This was an exceptionally wonderful experience for my husband and myself, along with my daughter and her family. Our two granddaughters loved the pond and the deck. We loved watching the Lake Michigan sunsets and the wildlife. With so much acreage, the property is quiet and relaxed, yet so close to Lake Michigan and Petoskey and Harbor Springs to the south and Mackinaw City and beyond to the north. We took full advantage of the proximity, swimming on a beautiful Lake Michigan beach recommended to us by Margaret, the chalet's wonderful owner, and took the easy drive to catch the ferry to Mackinac Island and to see the Soo Locks and museum. The house is so pleasant and easy to be in. Margaret and Stan have thought of everything, and it is every bit as beautiful (and more) as you see in the photos they have posted. Margaret met us the first night and oriented us to the house and the area and then we were on our own to spend the delightful and delicious week at the house together as a family, making memories. I would Most definitely recommend this rental to anyone. Beautiful house, beautiful area and wonderful, easy to work with owners. Thank you so much, Margaret and Stan!
I am so glad you had a great time. I don't think I would recommend it for tourists without a car because there isn't any public transportation available.
