AGAMIING MINWENDAM - LAKE MICHIGAN COTTAGE IN NATURAL SETTING

Cross Village Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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...'

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.

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.

PEACEFUL AND LOVELY COTTAGE. BEAUTIFUL SETTING.

  • 5 of 5
If I had a cottage, I would want it to have some of the charm of Agamiing Minwendam. It was just as promised, and better than expected. Just the right amount of rustic, with enough modern amenities to make the week very comfortable for two families of four and one dog. We were blessed with beautiful weather and lovely sunsets. This is our fourth year doing VRBO in NW MI. While we typically prefer to seek out new areas to explore, we would definitely consider renting here again.

GREAT COTTAGE ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect cabin on the lake. Not a fancy house like in the big city but a well maintained, clean, roomy, and well appointed cottage on the beach. You can feel the lake breeze and watch the sun sink into the lake. The sound of the waves on the beach help you sleep. Bustling civilization is far enough away that you can relax but not too far in case you want a great dinner cooked by someone else. Diane is great to work with and the pictures and listing is spot on. We plan to go back next year.

SHORES OF LAKE MICHIGAN

  • 4 of 5
The view, the colors of the water when calm versus stormy, the shoreline, the sky, the clouds, the sunsets, these were the things that impressed me most and made me feel like I was on vacation. Biking down the tunnel of trees, supper at Legs Inn, visiting Three Pines Studio and Colonial Michilimackinac--all added to the great time we had. The cottage was very accommodating to our extended family of nine people.

Our family had a wonderful vacation at the cottage. we had originally planned to use it as a base to visit other spots in northern Michigan but found no reason to leave Agamiing Minwendam. Even on the only day that was stormy we found lots of things to entertain young and old alike.

GREAT PLACE, LOVE THE AREA!

  • 5 of 5
The owner of the property was great to work with and she ensured we had everything we needed for a relaxed and welcomed stay! We have been coming up to the area for years and this cottage was a great place to spend a week! Very relaxed, lots of space, and amazing sunset viewing! We used the beach every day and my boys made memories we will never forget! Thanks for sharing your home with us Diane, great place and already looking forward to next year's vacation given the great time we had!

FABULOUS FALL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The cabin and area was exactly as described. It was beautiful, large yet cozy with everything you could need to stay for a wonderful vacation. The Tunnel of Trees, Cross Village and the surrounding area is so pretty and charming,we just loved it. The property was clean, very well kept and we could easily and happily just moved right in and stayed :-)
We visited area art shops, had a great, great meal and time at Legs Inn. The Polish food and excellent staff in addition to the beauty of the setting, made it a truly enjoyable afternoon. Can't wait to return! We did lots of wine tasting at nearby wineries while enjoying the beautiful sunny fall day, went to pumpkin patches, went to the Headlands which is amazing dark sky park, took a drive across the Mighty Mac and enjoyed the beauty of the pristine lands and the sparkling lights of the bridge. Just a fantastic trip all the way around! Thank you so much for sharing your home!
