Owner info

Year Purchased: 1969

About the owner: Our family cottage built in 1969 on 80 acres of beautiful wilderness. My father and mother were immigrants from England and Poland. We lived in Northville, MI and spent our summers in Cross Village. My father worked at FMC and came up every weekend. I fell in love with this area and in 1994 finally moved up here from Chicago to live year round. My husband and I were married at the little stone church in Cross Village!

Why the Owner Chose Harbor Springs, MI, USA:
Great place to bring your dog since we are situated on lovely 80 acres of meadow and forest, map of the property is provided, very quiet and private. We are only one mile from Lake Michigan, as kids we used to walk to the Village and down to the beach from the chalet. We also provide lots of cotton towels and cotton bed sheets, also firewood and kindling free of charge. charge.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
The Cross Village Chalet is one of the only cottages in the area with Wi Fi. This year (2016) we are remodeling the bath, with an all new tiled bathroom and tile shower. Will soon be adding an Eco bunkhouse with outdoor shower!
