Perfect getaway
Peaceful little cabin for the perfect little getaway.

Second Time Around!
This was my second time staying at the A-Frame in Cross Village. This time certainly didn't disappoint! Staying at the cottage during Michigan autumn is lovely. The fall colors are vivid and the surroundings are peaceful. We took advantage of the wood burning stove, wild apple trees and scenery for plenty of nature walks. I couldn't recommend staying here enough! It is the coziest place on earth.

5/5 Excellent

Great Stay
We had a great time staying in this house. The location was nice and scenic. Would definitely stay again and have already recommended it to a few people.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect mix of off the grid and connection
We all see those cabins in the middle of nowhere and fantasize about disconnecting and getting away from it all - until you scroll down the listing and see *no wifi*. Happily, this little cabin is the perfect blend of technology and being on your own. They have wifi and Netfilx which makes for the most peaceful mornings, cooking breakfast while watching the Great British Bake-off as the rain gently falls on the lush lawn outside. Aside from the practical things, the cabin is also well-maintained and outfitted in all the comforts of home, maximizing all the space with smart design. It was a bit too cold and wet when we were there to utilize the firepit, but they are near a dark sky zone so if you get the chance to build a fire outside and stare at the sky I would highly recommend it. Do try to get groceries on your way into town - the selection is a bit limited as the town is remote.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect in every way!
This property and the A Frame cabin are beautiful. We enjoyed nearly two full weeks of a change of scenery with our two dogs. My husband had to work most of the days and had no issues with cell service. We had everything we needed, including an unlimited supply of seasoned firewood for the fire pit and wood burning stove, which we used nearly every day. We walked the trails daily, ate well in the perfectly appointed kitchen and slept like rocks on the comfortable beds. I cannot sing the praises enough for this property and the owner. She was amazingly accommodating and available. I would go back for sure!!!
