About Tim Bannister
Tim Bannister got into innkeeping accidentally, when his stepfather surprised his mother with the purchase of a resort with a motel and 12 cottages 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 ad decided to build off that experience.

Why Tim Bannister chose Frankfort
Pierside Lodging had been a bed-and-breakfast that had closed 4 years earlier when Tim purchased the property. Built in 1890, the house had a long history as an inn, going back to its hosting of the workers who built the nearby Frankfort Pier.
What makes this lodge unique
Today, Serendipity House is a one-of-a-kind inn tailored to vacationers who want a unique experience that incorporates 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 called out greetings to passersby from their front porch. Serendipity House has the porch, as well as updated living space with the amenities for vacationers who enjoy something unique.
