What makes this cottage unique

I love to enjoy a relaxing morning cup of coffee out on the deck. Freighters can be seen and heard passing through the Straights-- count the lighthouses! Sunsets and the night sky are incredible--sometimes shooting stars, and sometimes the Northern Lights make an appearence.

Almost heaven

  • 5 of 5

Comfortably furnished with a nicely equipped kitchen with all appliances in perfect working order. Airy sleeping, even on cooler evenings. Very easy beach access via solid, built-in steps, and wonderful, wonderful, WONDERFUL sunsets.

The chipmunks are a delight, please continue to keep them around.

I'd spend my entire summer there if I could.

The owner was very easy to work with. We enjoyed many happy hours on the deck overlooking the beautiful lake and sunsets. Everything was clean and the "Tunnel of Trees" road, just outside our door, was driven by us many times. The site depicted the house well, however, there were no pictures of the baths. We found out only after we arrived that there is no shower, only a bathtub.

After spending a weekend at this cottage in Cross Village, my husband and I decided to move from East Lansing to Harbor Springs. We loved staying here --the sunsets are magic and as a bonus, we got to watch a thunderstorm move in on the horizon. Wonderful.
