I grew up in Michigan and went to college at Michigan Technological University. I currently work for a pharmaceutical company in Princeton, New Jersey

Tom Hess purchased this cottage in 1963

My parents built this property in the 60's. I have been coming up to Northern Michigan for over 50 years. Even though I now live in the Philadelphia area, I continue to come back every year to enjoy the wildlife, views and stunning sunsets on Lake Michigan

The cottage is located in a private association just off M=119 (the Tunnel of Trees). This allows a very peaceful and quiet environment. You can walk and enjoy the beach without crowds. The fire pit on the beach allows you to view the unbelievable star display. The cottage has enough bedrooms and bathrooms to sleep multiple families. You are 1 mile away from the quaint store and shops in Good Hart. You are in close proximity to Mackinaw Island, Harbor Springs and Petoskey.

SERENITY ON LAKE MICHIGAN

  • 4 of 5
Tom's family house on Lake Michigan offers loads of space to sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet of the beautiful location fronting the lake. With 3 bedrooms and two twins up in the loft (set apart from each other so our two teenage boys loved those), we had more than enough room for our family of 5 to spread out and get a little quiet time. It was like going to your grandparents cabin. There's a path to the Lake from the house, where you'll find beautiful views in a private setting. A fire pit if you think to bring wood for a night-time bonfire. The deck off the back of the house was a great place for an outdoor dinner (if you don't mind eating from plates off your lap, which we were fine with). Even though others were staying in the small community, we really didn't hear anyone. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is a beautiful location to enjoy yourself, even with a larger party of guests! Everything was very clean when we arrived. There's nothing in the cupboards except salt and pepper, so be sure to bring what you need (ie. oil, spices, syrup, etc).
Some tips: if you plan to cook at the house, make sure you buy groceries before you leave Harbor Springs or Petoskey. Restaurants are far from the house, even Legs Inn in Cross Village (and they close early some nights - 8 pm). There's a small convenience store at the gas station in Cross Village, but their offerings are not much (not on the main road - take the road directly across from Legs Inn and go 1 block). The little store 1 mile south of the house in Good Hart wasn't open our first night (5 pm). It's super small but you could find what you need for dinner and breakfast there. Great homemade poppyseed bread and other goodies. There's no beach to swim from at the house, even though you have lake access. Probably could easily take a canoe or kayak from the house (or bring water shoes to navigate the "muck"). Try the beach just north of Cross Village.
Loved listening to the lapping of the waves at night - it was a great place to introduce our California kids to up north Lake Michigan.

PEACE AND QUIET.

  • 5 of 5
When looking for a quiet getaway away from the noise of busier vacation towns in northern Michigan with the close access (20 mins) to those same towns. The pictures do this house justice. A short walk to the clear, very clear water of Lake Michigan is available with a short walk down the stairs to the water. If internet/cell access is a must, potentially another property will suit you better, but if looking for a quiet getaway with plenty of peace and quiet while still having access to "action" - this place is for you.

NICE COTTAGE IN A GOOD LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Just spent the week there and I got to say that we all enjoyed the cottage. It's spacious and clean with up to date appliances. It has enough room to sleep 9 comfortably. It has a great view of Lake Michigan from the deck and the beach and water is just a short stroll from the cottage. We used the fire pit on the beach 4 out of the 7 nights there while watching the awesome sunsets. The location of the cottage is perfect if you're looking for a peaceful location in the woods on the water and also looking for a centralized location in the Northwestern Lower Peninsula. Mackinaw City, Mackinac Island, Harbor Springs, and Petoskey are all within 30-40 minutes away from the cottage. We had a great time and hope we can come back again for another northern family retreat.

FAMILY GET TOGETHER 2013

On our way home from a wonderful family week vacation at your retreat! The place was perfect, we had beautiful weather all week and enjoyed some quality family time in such a peaceful, picturesque setting. Thank you for making our stay hassle free. We left it as we found it (except full of laughter and love!) thanks for being part of our family memories!
