Guestbook comments from the owner
We greatly enjoyed our week in the Lello House. The home is incredibly comfortable and inviting. The kids loved swimming and riding their bikes into town for pop and candy bars! My husband and I enjoyed the walks on the beach and the gorgeous sunsets; as well as the orange bread at the Good Hart General store and the crepes!

My husband and I purchased this property in 1975 and then spent many years gathering ideas before we built. We felt the grand-kids should focus on outdoor and creative activities while at the Lello House and therefore made a conscious decision against having a television. The decor and amenities were designed for our taste and comfort. Unfortunately retirement incomes to not allow for ever increasing property taxes which make it necessary for us to rent a portion of every year. Otherwise we would be there ourselves!

The view! The trillium, morels and wild flowers in the spring; the beach in the summer; the beautiful fall color; the surprising enchantment of winter. Cross Village has a wonderful neighborly small village culture. Did I mention the view?

The Lello House is well suited for multigenerational vacations.

CROSS VILLAGE COMFORT AND BEAUTY

  • 4 of 5
This home is well equipped, clean, and the owner is welcoming and available. We enjoyed the beautful beach and long walks on the shore.
The bedrooms are comfortable and clean, and kitchen was well equipped.
I would recommend this property if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing beach home that is within a 30 minutes or less drive to shopping, dining, tourist attractions.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been vacationing on Lake Michigan for many years....and this stay was our favorite! The house was lovely and the views from every window were awesome...like staying in a treehouse with a beautiful view of the lake. The owner was extremely helpful and we would highly recommend this home. We would love to stay again next year!

Owner's Response: I am delighted you had a good time. We worked with the architect to create a design which would accentuate the view. The interior is decorated in neutrals to keep your eye focused on the windows which serve as large works of art.

LOVELY HOME, SPECTACULAR LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I enjoyed our stay at your lovely home so much! The house was clean and very warm and welcoming, and my son and I really appreciated your book selection. The views from the house and the deck were beautiful and we enjoyed having the beach all to ourselves every day. The overall ambiance of the place was so peaceful and relaxing that we changed our plan for a day trip to Mackinaw Island because we wanted more time at the house! We would love to come back sometime.

There is so much to do that we have found TV unnecessary. There are multiple board games, puzzles, and books. We have a dish connection to the internet which is the best available in the area. Weather can affect service and access is limited by satellite capacity. There is extensive decking with table and chairs on the lower deck for eating 'out' plus a Weber Genesis Grill. The beach is a combination of sand and small rocks which varies with weather conditions so bring water shoes.
