Cross Village is an historic Indian village located on the shores of Lake Michigan, at the end of the famous M119 hwy 'Tunnel of Trees' scenic drive. Legs Inn Bar and restaurant is a must see while in town, as it is on the national register of historic places. It is famous for its Polish cuisine and fantastic views of the Lake, as well as the unique drift wood sculptures that make up the interior design. Harbor Springs, a quaint and charming town, is 20 miles South, and has many wonderful shops and restaurants. Mackinaw City is 20 minutes to the north, and there you can catch the ferry boat to Mackinac Island, home of the world famous Grand Hotel.

There you can rent bikes and tour the island (no automobiles allowed), hire a horse and buggy for a tour or just wander the streets and indulge in delicious fudge, which the town is famous for!

Cute, clean and everything we needed except for food and clothes. The owner called to check on us to see if we needed anything. We enjoyed kayaking, and rock collecting. The beach here is very rocky, but much cleaner than the sandy area a short walk away. The teens enjoyed finding games to play that weren't video games! The adults, teens and dogs all had a great time. Beautiful sunsets! Only 30 minutes from Machinac. We were hoping to try the Legg's Inn in Cross Village, but it was a 2 hour wait. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay again if it weren't for 4 teens and one shower.

Very cute and clean. Beautiful sunsets! Just about everything was provided except for clothes and food. We really enjoyed kayaking, walking the beach, bird watching and collecting rocks. The beach is very rocky, but there is a more sandy beach further down. We preferred to stay at the beach at the home since it was much cleaner. The owner called to check on us to see if we needed anything. There was a book on the table that let us know about everything in the area. About 30 minutes from Mackinac. We were really hoping to try Legg's Inn, but it was about a 2 hour wait. The adults, teens, and dogs all had a great time! We would stay again, but one shower with 4 teens was the only downfall.

Had a great time!

Thanks Bob and family for renting your Lake Michigan house to us a couple of weeks ago! We really enjoyed our stay, and it was very easy to just RELAX! The accomodations were as expected and we had everything we needed. The water was nice, the view was beautiful, and we have several evenings of gorgeous sunsets. The deck was a great place to eat our dinner and watch the sunset. Thanks again! (and our dogs had a BLAST!)

Peaceful, relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed for a week during July '09. The cottage is roomy and immaculate. You can hear the waves and the loons while laying in bed. The deck is great - lots of hummingbird activity. The property is secluded and very large. View is beyond words - lighthouses, ships. We were there on July 4th evening and could watch fireworks on the deck from miles away on the shores and islands. Literally miles of beach you can call your own - great rock hunting. The swimming is great. Good bike riding nearby. The scenic views from the large dunes that are right down the street are incredible. There is a chain of statewide hiking trails that run through the area that are close by and absolutely wonderful. Plenty of local and nearby restaurants and attractions.

In a forgotten corner of Northern Michigan away from the hoards in some surrounding towns lies Cross Village and Sturgeon Bay. Beautiful, uncrowded beaches and views that are next to none. Sand dunes, beach combing and water activities, the list of things to do is endless. Near the famous towns of Mackinaw City and Harbor Springs ,yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and solitude.

Other Activities: Mackinac Island, Shopping in Harbor Springs
