About The Owner

Our family cottage built in 1969 on 80 acres of beautiful wilderness. My father and mother were immigrants from England and Poland. We lived in Northville, MI and spent our summers in Cross Village. My father worked at FMC and came up every weekend. I fell in love with this area and in 1994 finally moved up here from Chicago to live year round. My husband and I were married at the little stone church in Cross Village!

The Owner purchased this chalet in 1969

Why The Owner chose Northern Michigan

Great place to bring your dog since we are situated on lovely 80 acres of meadow and forest, map of the property is provided, very quiet and private. We are only one mile from Lake Michigan, as kids we used to walk to the Village and down to the beach from the chalet.

We also provide lots of cotton towels and cotton bed sheets, also firewood and kindling free of charge.


What makes this chalet unique

The Cross Village Chalet is one of the only cottages in the area with Wi Fi.

This year (2016) we are remodeling the bath, with an all new tiled bathroom and tile shower. Will soon be adding an Eco bunkhouse with outdoor shower!

Relaxing fall weeken in the woods

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet is absolutely lovely! Everything was as described on the site. The setting is verily quiet, secluded, and well maintained. We loved all the special touches and amenities. We would have been thrilled to enjoy the hammock, fire pit, and deck but the weather did not allow it. Instead we kept cozy by the wood fire stove. The property was very clean. Directions to area sites and general store very helpful. We hope to return for a longer stay in the future. Thank you!

Great location with all you need is there

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage and all that you will need if you are looking to relax and have a good time with family and friends. It is small, well maintained with great yard area. Includes a great hammock, lots of sitting places on the deck and in the yard, well equipped kitchen, good lighting and a decent shower. It is about 30 minute from Pitoskey state Park that we loved and also just 5 minutes from a nearby beach where you can view the lovely sunset. The owner is very helpful. She stopped by just to show us how to light the fire at the fireplace in the living area. We would go there again.

Wonderful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, and our dog stayed at the chalet for a week in mid-October. It was the retreat we were looking for! The chalet was clean and had lots of nice little touches. The wood stove was probably everyone's favorite feature, including the dog! It was so nice and toasty on the cold and rainy day! The chalet was proximal to many of the things we wanted to do. We went to Mackinac Island (probably a 20m drive to the ferry). Leg's Inn was fantastic. We got there the week before they shut down for the season. We also ventured down to Petoskey and Charlevoix (check out the mushroom houses) and Pond Hill Farm. Driving along the coast on the tunnel of trees was so nice too! We'll definitely try to go back in the future!
