SERENDIPITY HOUSE: FOUR-SEASON LODGING AT THE WATER'S EDGE

Frankfort Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Studio suite with 1 bedroom, kitchenette and bathroom. Sleeps 4.

Located in Frankfort a block from Lake Michigan, Serendipity House offers four-season lodging in 5 suites at the water's edge. Pack your beach gear and head right to enjoy Lake Michigan's beaches and spectacular sunsets. Cross the street to start biking the 26-mile Betsie Trail. Or head left to enjoy downtown Frankfort's unique shops and restaurants.

Then come back for hiking or driving through the autumn colors; winter downhill and cross-country skiing; and the trillium and morels awakening to spring in the area forests.

With 5 suites, we're also well-suited for wedding parties, family reunions, or for sharing vacations with friends. And we're pet-friendly!

We're listing the Betsie Suite; but if the dates you'd like are not available on the calendar, we invite you to visit one of our other suites: Manitou (HomeAway #180215); Nannybird (HomeAway #186194); Lakeview (HomeAway #188035); or Sandune (HomeAway #185719).

Suitability:
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • pets considered

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.

Tim Bannister purchased this lodge in 2007

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.

Serendipity House is located in Frankfort, Michigan, across from Betsie Bay and a block from Lake Michigan and its sandy beaches and breathtaking sunsets. Frankfort began life as a central point for shipping lumber, and with its proximity to water, woods and sand dunes, it eventually evolved to a vacation destination.

Today, Frankfort features a walkable downtown with quaint shops, one-of-a-kind restaurants and a restored movie theater. A 26-mile biking trail begins across the street, while within a half-hour drive are several vineyards, organic markets, and art galleries.

Other Activities: plane gliding
