CRANMER HEARTH

Cross Village House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The fireplace was built with stones found by the Cranmer family from the lake, the woods and area farm fields over 60 years ago. It’s why we call our lake house the “Cranmer Hearth”.

It’s almost 3 acres with 200 feet of frontage on Lake Michigan in Cross Village at the northern beginning of the nationally historic highway called the ‘Tunnel of Trees”; a stunning example of the best of ‘Northern Michigan’.

We’ve renovated and with professional assistance from Interior Design Options of Gaylord have redecorated this beautiful beachside home. Four bedrooms, two are master suites, one with a king bed and one with a queen bed. The two smaller bedrooms are one with a double bed and one with two twins plus a den with a futon. So it sleeps 8 comfortably, 10 with the futon with 4.5 bathrooms. Stunning sunsets and fresh water breezes with a small, always babbling spring just feet from the deck - it's a great spot to unwind and just hang out for a week or two.

Many amenities including granite counters in the kitchen, espresso maker and flat screen televisions with Satellite TV and just minutes from Cross Village – a pleasant, peaceful village – the opposite of the hectic lives most of us live. Yet within 20 to 30 minutes from Harbor Springs, Mackinaw Island and Pelston Airport (PLN) - daily non-stops from Detroit.

Welcome - we'd love to have you as our guests!

Greetings from Cross Village! We purchased and renovated this wonderful lakehouse in Spring, 2009 and were overwhelmed by both the interest in it and how nice the folks were who became our guests. Thank you, Joe and Joletta Richert

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

It's an unbelievable part of the world - standing on 200 feet of sand and dunes makes us (at least) realize what a great state Michigan is. Located at the beginning of one of our country's top 10 scenic highways, the 'Tunnel of Trees', when you get here, you're there.

There is a small year 'round spring that trickles through the rocks just a few feet south of the deck and patio. Cross Village is a quiet place, yet it is only 20 to 30 minutes from Harbor Springs, Mackinaw Island, and Pelston Airport (PLN) with daily flights to Detroit. Some of Michigan's best golf is within minutes, too.

Perfect Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generational family spent a wonderful week at gorgeous Cranmer Hearth. The layout was perfect with several bedroom options that fully met the needs of our group. It's a beautiful place, inside and out. The common areas - kitchen, dining area, and living room - were comfortable and functional. We loved the deck and the fire pit and spent many hours along the Lake Michigan shore - walking for miles, swimming, skipping stones, playing beach games. The house is close enough to walk the beach to Leg's Inn for dinner (and a walk back is required if you order dessert!). We loved biking M119, too. A dream family vacation!

5th summer renting this lovely property!

I have said it all in previous reviews: Perfect location, clean, well stocked, gorgeous beach. Our family once again enjoyed a wonderful 2 week stay. We were excited to see a few upgrades/ improvements: a new AC unit (although, we never needed to use it with the breeze off the lake) and better screen doors on the back porch. Thanks for another fabulous summer in Cross Village!

This was our second stay here and it was absolutely great. The listing description was accurate as were the photos. The property wasclean and well maintained. All questionswere answered by the owners representative and they were easy to work with. Our family came from Wyoming and Colorado and stayed primarily at the cottage although trips to Mackinaw City and Island were enjoyed. This is an outstanding spot.
