About the Property

3 BR, 1.5 bath, cabin on the beach

Lakefront hand crafted cabin on the shores of Lake Michigan, a peaceful retreat built by artist/teachers in a natural setting, 3/4 mile south of Cross Village, north of Harbor Springs on the 'Tunnel of Trees' Lakeshore Drive, on a short winding drive off the main road.

Enjoy a relaxing, carefree, back-to-nature vacation on the big lake, lakeside dining, bright starlit nights, wake to the soothing sound of waves lapping on the shore. Ideal for naturalists, cyclists, families, couples, or you and a few friends.

Enjoy summer play on the lake. Unwind and relax where cellphones barely work and sunsets are the daily attraction. Beachwalk several miles of open beach in either direction. Ideal for catching up on reading, writing, sunrise yoga, cycling back roads. Walk, bike or canoe to the village, bring your own windsurfer, kayak or small sailboat (rentals nearby). Sandy public beaches with small boat launch in Cross Village and Sturgeon Bay.

Complete kitchen for cooking, or dine out or carry-out in Cross Village at famous Legs Inn (plus music and dancing on weekends), or nearby, The Fish, Levering Cafe, the Tearoom and Crepe Shack in Good Hart. Cross Village also is home to the Cross Village General Store and a friendly little post office, Three Pines Studio and art gallery, who offer workshops just right for a week long vacation.

Explore Wilderness State Park a short drive up the shore. Nearby day excursions by ferry to Mackinac Island and Beaver Island. Enjoy a lighthouse tour by boat. Golf, tennis, performing arts, shopping, dining, in Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Cheboygan, and Mackinaw City.

Quote from a visitor: 'What I love about your vacation home is the location in the Tunnel of Trees, no steps down to the beach (wonderful for my mother and grandchildren), and the lovely, artistic and beautiful job you have done on the place.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Harbor Springs, MI, USA:
This land has been in our family for multiple generations. The rental property is a cabin that was built on a portion of the original parcel. It is owned by 'the kids' now, all of whom grew up summering on the lake. Thirty acres above the waterfront property were donated to the Little Traverse Conservancy. Over three acres are retained as part of the waterfront home, with a conservation easement. We have only recently opened the cabin for paid guests, during weeks when the family is not using it. We are pleased to be able to share our piece of heaven with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Just being down here on the big lake is a peaceful and refreshing experience. After a few days, you can feel yourself unwind and feel at home. Being close to the lake, the weather and wildlife is good for the soul. The sun doesn't always shine. Sometimes there are storms. They are wild and beautiful. Being close to the variety of weather is all part of the experience. The original artwork was created by family and friends.
