Cross Village General Store
If you plan to drive the Tunnel of Trees be sure to visit the Cross Village General Store, for essential goodies, like hand-dipped ice cream cones. In 1999, The Howard Family, resurrected the Cross Village General Store in its current location – the first commercial building built in Cross Village since the 1920s. Back by popular demand – giant hand-dipped ice cream cones – a Lee Howard tradition in the village. They have a great deli, cold drinks, Michigan gifts, and this is the only place to refuel for miles and miles.
The Howard family recently reclaimed ownership of the Cross Village General Store, now managed by Jan and Doug Hill and Jan’s mother, Sue Howard – who is once again making her delicious salads. We are excited to be back in beautiful Cross Village and the General Store has expanded to include a menu filled with fresh homemade hot and cold delights prepared daily including pizza, sandwiches, pasties, pot pies, soups, salads and much more. We’ve also stocked a wide selection of craft and imported beers.
