Frankfort House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, full kitchen and bath. Sleeps 8.

Located in Frankfort a block from Lake Michigan, Serendipity House offers four-season lodging in five suites at the water's edge.

Pack your beach gear and turn right to enjoy Lake Michigan's beaches and spectacular sunsets. Cross the street to start biking on the 22-mile Betsie Trail. Or turn left to enjoy downtown Frankfort's unique shops and restaurants. Then come back for fall colors, winter skiing, and spring awakenings.

The Sandune is adjacent to our other suites, making us especially well-suited for family reunions, wedding parties, or sharing vacations with friends; and we're pet-friendly! Special prices when you book off-season after Labor Day and into late June.

Serendipity House offers relaxation on our big front porch and a chance to enjoy the passing parade. Moving upstairs, the Sandune Suite offers a front bedroom with a queen bed and a bath just across the hallway.

Down the hallway is the living room and adjacent kitchen and dining area with the larger bedroom that sleeps four guests at the rear of the suite. A fold-out sofa bed in the living room provides accommodation for two more guests. Off the kitchen is a private entrance and deck with stairs leading to the beach.

This listing is for the Sandune, but if the dates are not available on our calendar, check out our other suites: Betsie (#195186); Manitou (#180215); Nannybird (#186194); or Lakeview (#188035). Come stay with us soon!

About The Owner

The Bannisters got into innkeeping accidentally, when Tim's stepfather surprised his mother with the purchase of a resort in nearby Arcadia, complete 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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner 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 had always served as an inn, going back to its hosting of the workers who built the nearby Frankfort Pier.

What makes this house unique

Today, Serendipity House is a one-of-a-kind inn configured for vacationers who see their accommodations as part of their vacation experience. Situated on Main Street a block from Lake Michigan and adjacent to Frankfort's downtown district, the inn recalls earlier times when residents would exchange gossip from their front porches. Serendipity has that porch, as well as updated living space, with the amenities for vacationers who enjoy something special.

Great location, right in town!

  • 4 of 5
This was a great location in town which was good with our kids. To the beach or resturants or shops, easy. Small kitchenette, bring your food and spices. Clean rooms in a quaint,older home.
