    Excellent Vacation Rental!
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the 'Tunnel of Trees'. Wonderful beachfront across the street, great backyard with 2 grills and bags boards. Lots of comfortable seating in all of the outdoor spaces too with beautiful views everywhere!

    Beautiful Countryside
    In all my years as a Michigander, as well as a regular visitor of Mackinac City, I'm sorry to say that I had never ventured over to Cross Village. My goal for this trip was to find a house that was close to the bridge while still being on the Lake Michigan coast. I currently have a seventeen year-old foreign exchange daughter and I wanted to show her what the Great Lakes look like. This place did not fail to impress us on all counts. The view was terrific, the house was just what we needed to unwind between our sightseeing trips, and we had more than everything that we needed. The place does sit atop a hillside bluff, and unless you have a 4wd, you're going to be climbing more than a few stairs to get up there, but in my opinion, it made it so much more beautiful. The cottage was secluded enough to give us our space from neighbors, and while our cell service was questionable at best, Mr. Epperly has a land line phone and high-speed internet, giving us any amenities that we might need in that department. He was also quick to answer text or phone messages, and he went out of his way to encourage me to contact him if anything was needed. I hope he knows that I treated his home with more respect than I would my own, and I made sure that my four children did as well. My wife and I will definitely keep this place in mind for the future should we find ourselves in need of lodging up that way again, and we usually do.

    Scenic Beauty
    This Vrbo listing is one of the best we have ever been, and pet friendly to boot. The calm, privacy, and views are unbeatable. Lake MI is steps away.The views and sounds of the lake are amazing, this property is a must. The inside decor is simple, inviting, and clean. The owners have thought of everything and leave detailed information for the home as well as the area. Take advantage of all the suggestions. There are two decks that both offer nice furniture to eat by or just enjoy the views of the lake. The back of the house offers views of the wooded forest beauty with no other house to impede the view. The owners responded promptly to any questions we had. It was a peaceful getaway. Don’t forget to hit all the other walking beaches the area has to offer. We will be back! Keep in mind the elevation that offers the view, also means a steep driveway, a 4 wheel drive is recommended. Thanks so much for the great stay.
