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...'

Why D R McPharlin chose Cross Village
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.
What makes this cabin unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Got back last night and missed the cottage already. I managed to paint every day and had a wonderful relaxing reflective time. ...will be in touch about booking my next stay.
