Very cute cottage on the bluff with 180 degree view of lake Michigan off the back deck. Beautiful sunsets at night. Whitetail deer and an occasional red fox frequent the area along with plenty of birds and squirrels. 20 minutes from Mackinaw City and that exciting boat ride over to Mackinaw Island. Plenty of golf courses within 15-20 minutes, both for the beginner and accomplished golfers. Close to many good fishing lakes with available boat rentals. 5 minutes from the 'tunnel of trees' for the avid cyclist or motorcycle rider. A 5 minute walk from the famous Legs Inn and their great Polish cuisine. Also, a 5 minute walk to a great sandy beach that is never crowded. We have AT & T cell phone service ONLY!

About Jim Hess

I have been coming up to northern Michigan for the past 45 years. I started out in our family cottage and then, bought my own place in Cross Village. I now live in Tucson, Arizona, but always come back in the summer to enjoy the awesome sunsets on Lake Michigan. I love to golf and fish which, this cottage allows me generous opportunities for both.

Jim Hess purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Jim Hess chose Northern Michigan

Cross Village is truly a hidden gem of northern Michigan. The beaches are never crowded. It is very quiet and peaceful. Yet, you are close to all the activities of Harbor Springs, Petoskey, and Mackinaw City.

What makes this cottage unique

Golfing, fishing, hiking, or just plain relaxing on the back deck watching the freighters traveling on Lake Michigan.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage - it was clean and cozy, peaceful and quiet, and the owners were quite helpful with our questions. Our young 'uns enjoyed hanging out in the living room and on the nearby beach. We enjoyed the back deck and yard, watching the wildlife and going for walks in the area. It's an excellent value, and I would recommend this place to anyone with a family or a small/medium-sized group vacationing in the area. For a nice meal out, we enjoyed the Legs Inn - food was great and the waitstaff attentive and energetic. Plus lots of beautiful Polish pottery in the gift shop. We really enjoyed the fireworks in Harbor Springs, too!
