Frankfort Lodge Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom; living room with sofa bed; kitchen/dining room; full bath; sleeps 4
Serendipity House offers year-'round lodging in five suites just steps from the beach. Each suite has its own entrance, kitchen and bath with views of the resort town and a large front porch for relaxing and enjoying the passing parade.
Pack your beach gear and head west a block to enjoy Lake Michigan's beaches and spectacular sunsets. Cross the street to start biking the 22-mile Betsie Valley Trail. Or turn east to enjoy wander through downtown Frankfort's unique shops and restaurants; enjoy a first-run film in the recently restored Garden Theatre; or celebrate the season with an award-winning crafted beer at the Storm Cloud Brewery. Then come back for fall colors, winter skiing, and spring awakenings.
With five suites--some of which are inter-connecting--we're especially well-suited for wedding parties, family reunions or for sharing vacations with friends; and we're pet-friendly!
Along with the large, front porch, we provide a picnic table at the rear of the property, comfortable chairs, Weber grilles, and a rack for your bike.

About Tim Bannister
The Bannisters got into innkeeping accidentally, when Tim's stepfather surprised his mother with the purchase of a resort in nearby Arcadia with a motel and 12 cottages. It was a long, colorful and rocky road until the resort was sold off in 2007, but Tim learned a great deal as an innkeeper and decided to build off that experience.
Tim Bannister purchased this lodge in 2007
Why Tim Bannister chose Frankfort
Pierside Lodging had been a bed-and-breakfast that had closed some 4 years before Tim purchased the property and renamed it 'Serendipity House.' Built in 1890, the house has always served as an inn, going back to hosting the workers who built the nearby Frankfort Light and Pier.
What makes this lodge unique
Today, Serendipity House is a one-of-a-kind inn configured for vacationers who value a unique experience that includes their accommodations. Situated on Main Street a block from Lake Michigan and adjacent to Frankfort's charming downtown district, the inn recalls earlier times when residents would exchange greetings from their front porches. Serendipity has the front porch, as well as updated living space with all the amenities for those vacationers who enjoy something unique.
