Fantastic lakefront cottage on Lake Michigan with direct access, to a very private beach. It is a beachcombers dream. Each summer evening the sun sets directly in front of you.

Shopping and sightseeing to popular attractions like Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Mackinaw City, Mackinaw Island and Charlevoix and points beyond, are all well worth the trip.

Cottage respite in Cross Village

  • 5 of 5

Our first-ever family vacation at a cottage exceeded all expectations! Absolutely loved the cottage, the scenery, the wildlife, the myriad of activities and most of all the peaceful, natural surroundings. Can't say enough good things about this place.

Great retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! We had 2 families (total of 4 adults & 3 teenagers) and we had plenty of room. All maintenance issues listed in a previous review have been dealt with. Bedrooms are good size. Living room is comfortable. View from living room & deck is outstanding! We enjoyed every single sunset even from the comfort of the living room on the chilly evenings (which were rare & unseasonable). Kitchen table and kitchen are large & accommodating. Very quiet and secluded. Neighbors are close but so much forest & foliage that you'd never guess it. Day-trips were easy to plan. Landlord was great to work with. Great communication-highly recommended. We'll definitely put this on our list for return trips!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We just rented over the week of July 4th, 2011. We were amazed at how great this place was! Not only was everything clean, but it had all the ammenities, including comfy beds, plenty of room, Direct TV, free long distance, WI-FI, a nice grill, and nice pots and pans!

The view of this home is absolutely stunning and the deck is huge! There are views from all over the house and the pictures on the website really don't do it justice.

We are people who have very high expectations and they were all exceeded!

Another amazement - we felt like we were on a deserted island - there was no one around, no hustle or crowds - just the relaxing vacation we needed. We biked (the number of great biking spots are too many to count with amazing views all over), kayaked the bay (3 provided in our house), walked the beach and just chilled on our private beach all week. We were so sad to go but will definitely be renting again!

What a wonderful place! A view of the lake that I will never forget especially when I am sitting at my desk back at work. We were stunned on enterring the cottage to find such a comfortable home with lovely furnishings and artwork that you rarely find in other rentals. It felt like I was in my mothers cottage again! The recent upgrades since our last visit have been well received. Keep up the good work! Now don't change a thing!
