About Tim Bannister
Tim Bannister got into innkeeping accidentally, when his 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.

Why Tim Bannister chose Frankfort
Pierside Lodging had been a bed-and-breakfast that was closed and mothballed for 4 years when Tim purchased it and changed the name to Serendipity House. Built in 1890, the house had always served as an inn, going back to hosting the workers who built the nearby Frankfort Pier.
What makes this lodge unique
Today, Serendipity House is a one-of-a-kind inn designed for vacationers who want a unique experience that includes their accommodations. Situated on Main Street a block from Lake Michigan and at the edge of Frankfort's charming downtown district, the inn recalls an earlier time when residents would call out greetings from their front porch to passersby.
Serendipity has the big front porch and updated living space with all the amenities for vacationers who enjoy something unique.
