About Tim Bannister
The Bannisters got into innkeeping accidentally, when Tim's stepfather surprised his mother with the purchase of a resort with 12 cottages and a motel in nearby Arcadia. 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 had been closed and mothballed for 4 years when Tim purchased the property and renamed it 'Serendipity House.' Built in 1890, the house had started out as an inn, going back to hosting the workers who built the 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 earlier times when residents would call out greetings and exchange gossip from their big front porch to passersby. Serendipity has the big front porch and updated living space with all the amenities for vacationers who enjoy something unique.
