We had PERFECT weather for our stay with gorgeous sunsets every night! The house is very tidy and comfortable and good for 4-6 adults and a couple of kids, with the upstairs access best for the younger members. The beach was great and the clear water not too cold. Highly recommend the European Bistro in town (across from the Leggs Inn)
Cross Village Bliss
This cottage is just what our family needed...peace and quiet with just about all the amenities of home. The views of the lake especially at sunset are breathtaking. The owners are very responsive and easy to deal with. We found the cottage clean and inviting.
Everyone enjoyed the 2 kayaks that are available for use along with life jackets. The owners thought of everything- even three bikes were in the garage for use although I don’t think the kids used them.
We made several short trips to Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Mackinaw City and Charlevoix. There are great restaurants and shops to enjoy in all of these places.
We certainly hope to return to Pat and Leslie’s blissful cottage!!

Sunsets and stars abound
We had a wonderful stay at this eclectic cottage on the beach! The hosts were a pleasure and easy to communicate with before and after our stay. All info was in a nicely organized and easy to read binder, so we did not need to communicate during our stay. While this place may not be for everyone, it was perfect for us! There are a lot of steps down to the beach, but it provides privacy and glorious views from the deck, as well as access to a fabulous beach with friendly neighbors or nobody but us for miles. Be sure to bring food with you from one of the surrounding towns, but everything else needed is at the house. The WiFi is slow, but again, perfect for us since it allowed us to unplug from the world for a week. It was so relaxing! We thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks daily, as well as the bikes, short hike to the dune, daily hummingbird visits, and spectacular views of Lake Michigan and the stars at night! We also took advantage of the location to visit Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Mackinac Island, and Cross Village within in a 40 min or less drive each. The drive down the Tunnel of Trees was fun, too! It is a great cabin in the woods for both solitude from the crowds, but also central location for the bustling activity in surrounding towns.
Cottage respite in Cross Village
Our first-ever family vacation at a cottage exceeded all expectations! Absolutely loved the cottage, the scenery, the wildlife, the myriad of activities and most of all the peaceful, natural surroundings. Can't say enough good things about this place.
We loved this place! We had 2 families (total of 4 adults & 3 teenagers) and we had plenty of room. All maintenance issues listed in a previous review have been dealt with. Bedrooms are good size. Living room is comfortable. View from living room & deck is outstanding! We enjoyed every single sunset even from the comfort of the living room on the chilly evenings (which were rare & unseasonable). Kitchen table and kitchen are large & accommodating. Very quiet and secluded. Neighbors are close but so much forest & foliage that you'd never guess it. Day-trips were easy to plan. Landlord was great to work with. Great communication-highly recommended. We'll definitely put this on our list for return trips!
Great place to get away from it all!!!
Absolutely loved this place!! Want to say thank-you to grace and family for sharing their wonderful beach house w us!! We had so much fun watching the many humming birds go crazy! Buzzed our heads a few times! Saw our beautiful eagles again! Such regal birds!! Loved sitting on deck w our wine and atching sun set. Boys enjoyed the two kayaks as well! Peaceful and quiet place....thanks again for sharing! We will be back!!! Bob and Cindy K.
