About Clift Cottage: The back wing was the owner’s father's design studio. This section of the log house was the original Roman Catholic Church from the Cross Village, Michigan when the French settled in Cross Village. This section was brought over to Carp Lake where it exists today during the 1930s. Cross Village is a well known settlement in the area. The Porch is a glassed/screened porch overlooking Paradise Lake and it is very comfortable on cold windy days.
