About Michael Epperly
I grew up in the Detroit area but spent a good portion of my childhood summers in Northern Michigan. From that experience I always had a dream of someday owning a cottage in Northern Michigan.
Michael Epperly purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Michael Epperly chose Harbor Springs
I was introduced to the Tunnel of Trees approximately ten years ago and was instantly taken by its uniqueness and natural beauty. This chalet-style home is surrounded by trees, yet has great views overlooking the Tunnel of Trees and Lake Michigan. Behind the property is over an acre of unblemished woods with a creek running through it. Property also has private beach access.
What makes this Cottage unique
The property is conveniently located for many day trips. Tour or bike the Tunnel of Trees or take a short drive to the Sturgeon Bay and Dunes. Petoskey, Harbor Springs, and Mackinaw City are approximately 30 minutes away.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
We can’t recommend this property more. It was perfect for our family vacation. It’s a great home in a beautiful location. Plenty to do nearby and a great place to relax if you’d rather do that.
Renting process was simple. Owner was a pleasure to deal with. Home was beautiful and a great location to relax.
We had a great return visit to this beautiful property and location!
Perfect Getaway for Us
This chalet was beautiful - great views, wonderful location, and very well equipped. We really appreciated the info packet, filled with all kinds of recommendations and helpful information (and expectations on what we needed to do, as guests). The host, Mike, is an excellent communicator. This was our first time using VRBO, and we had a 💯 positive experience. I would definitely rent this place again!
Great Vacation getaway on the Tunnel of Trees.
The Chalet was exactly as described and the views are better in person. The owner has thought of everything included in the stay for a great vacation get away.
Enjoyed the location despite the cool weather. Loved the fall colors! The property was one of the nicest we have stayed in when renting via VRBO
Cross Village is a natural destination point for travelers in Emmet County, as it stands at the northern end of M-119, a state designated Scenic Heritage Route, that extends north from Harbor Springs following the Lake Michigan shoreline. This road is renowned for its natural scenery, particularly the bordering hardwood forests. En route to Cross Village, the traveler passes meadows, occasional panoramic views over Lake Michigan, historic cottages, tree stands that bridge the road in canopy fashion, through Good Hart, and antique shops. The road winds and twists to encourage slow speed and enhance the enjoyment of the scenic tour. While Cross Village is a the terminus of M-119, it is not the end of the road, as Shore Drive continues northeast out of the Township into Bliss Township.
