Michigan sunsets and crystal clear waters equals life on "Cross Village time". Located on Michigan's #1 scenic drive, the towns of Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Mackinaw City and Cheboygan are all within a 30-minute drive. The great room is all windows facing the lake offering an unrestricted view of Lake Michigan. A spacious deck, just a few steps out the door, juts out over the beach for sunning and star-gazing.
Rentals during the summer season 6/10/17 - 9/16/17 are full weeks only Saturday to Saturday. September 17 - October 28 minimum rental 3 nights.
If your idea of vacation is active, the area offers boating, hiking the north country trails, biking, antiquing and shopping. Three Pines Gallery and the famous Legs Inn are a one mile walk into Cross Village. Seven miles north of Cross Village, Bliss Park has acres of climbing dunes and sandy beach.
Bringing water shoes is recommended for swimming and beach-walking because the beach and water are a mixture of sand and rounded rocks. The beach in front of the house is sandy but the amount of sandy lake bottom varies from year to year.
The deck rests on large boulders jutting out over the beach. If your children are under the age of reason, constant supervision would be required to prevent them from climbing through the railings.

About the owner: Cottage is owned by a family trust. Our parents built this lake house in the early 60's when his family was young with the help of a local Indian carpenter and stonemason. When the family grew, they built another cottage on the bluff across M-119 which is reserved for family use. We rent the lake house to help preserve our family tradition for yet another generation.
Why the Owner Chose Harbor Springs, MI, USA:
Cross Village and the changing moods of Lake Michigan provide a getaway that restores perspective to our hectic lives. The view from inside the house feels like you're on a boat overlooking the water. See reviews.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The beaches along this stretch of Lake Michigan are sparsely populated. You can walk the waterline for miles and encounter few souls.
