Tunnel of Trees Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Bouck's cottage situated along The Tunnel of Trees and on the bluff of Lake Michigan. The cottage, recently updated, is clean, warm and welcoming. It has a wood burning fire place, gas grill, wooden deck and other amenities. There is access to a private beach where we saw amazing sunsets.

The location is ideal ... Harbor Springs and Petoskey to the south; Cross Village, Wilderness State Park and Mackinac Island to the north all a short drive. It is also within walking distance to The Good Hart General Store.

Great Choice!

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do it justice. The home is lovely and perfect for 2 or 4. The setting is quiet and beautiful, looking out over L. Michigan. The location is great for seeing the region. The shops at Good Hart are well worth a visit, and Legs Inn at Cross Village is close by - big and busy with a Polish menu. Harbor Springs has is pretty, with some restaurants and shops, and Petosky has even more of both. Charlevoix is scenic and also has nice shops and good eateries. This home is also well located for day trips to Mackinac Island or to Sleeping Bear Dunes N.P.

The home is nicely furnished. The kitchen is well equipped with cookware and serving ware. There are plenty of paper goods (towels, napkins, coffee filters) and cleaning supplies, but note that other kitchen consumables (e.g. plastic wrap or foil, condiments, spices, coffee, cooking oil) that you may have discovered in other kitchens are not provided, so plan accordingly. Internet would be a good addition. There is a very nice outdoor grill, a fire pit, and a nice deck. Overall we are very glad we chose this spot and we highly recommend it.

Great Stay on the Tunnel of Trees Scenic Highway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on the Tunnel of Trees for a week in July 2015. The cabin was ideal for our family, it's clean, comfortable and well decorated. It was well stocked with kitchen utensils and even had use of a grill. It has a great sun deck with a view the lake complete with lounge chairs and a picnic table.

The cabin's location is great for day tripping to nearby resort areas and it's only a short walk to the Good Hart General Store where you can get essentials, sandwiches, ice cream cones, and their famous Homemade Pies.

Ernie is very helpful and quick to answer questions, A+.
