Frankfort House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

My little hideaway is in the heart of the Village of Elberta, a four season paradise

Elberta and Frankfort beaches are just minutes away

Betsie Valley Trail, a walking and biking path, follows Betsie Bay to Frankfort, as well as stretching the other direction to Beulah and Thompsonville, 22 miles in all.

Crystal Mountain is a mere 20 minute drive for skiing or golf.

Benzie County is perfect for hunting, fishing, and snowmobiling

Feel like shopping? Browse the unique shops of Frankfort or zip up to Traverse City, about 45 miles away. If you're feeling lucky, hit the casinos in Traverse or Manistee, 1/2 hour south.

This is truly a hideaway with something for everyone and a great place to relax and unwind, no matter the season.

I grew up in Elberta and inherited this lovely little house from my father. I have had it totally remodeled into the perfect hideaway to get away from it all in beautiful northwestern Michigan. If I could, I would spend the whole summer there myself! I hope that the people who stay in my Elberta Village Hideaway will love it and the Benzie County area with its lakes and rivers and gorgeous scenery as much as I do.

Maria Whitmer purchased this house in 2009

Elberta is a quiet peaceful village that is just a hop and a skip away from lots of fun places.

The Elberta Village Hideaway is in the perfect location - it's minutes from the sandy Lake Michigan beaches and within walking distance of the Betsie River. A quick 20 minute drive takes you to Crystal Mountain for golf. There are casinos and shopping in Manistee and Traverse City, 30 and 45 minutes away. Frankfort is 1 mile away on the north side of Betsie Bay and has unique shops. There is also an nice private back yard to relax in.

Anniversary Getaway

This house was perfect! We stayed for our anniversary and it was the perfect getaway. It's so close to the beach and many other towns in the area. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need to cook, which really worked out since we were dining on a budget! We had a great experience and definitely plan to come back for a visit again someday!

Centrally located for numerous activities, Elberta Hideaway provided the perfect combination of amenties and relaxation. Well maintained, clean, and accurately described in both photos and descriptions. I earned kudos from my mother and sister for choosing this hideaway, but the real accolades go to the owner of Elberta Hideaway.

Great Location

Thank you for providing a wonderful house for our vacation. It was close to the bike trail, kayak rental, and the beach was just a short distance away. The house was very clean, well-maintained, with nice amenities (paper goods, etc.). We would rent again. The only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

This little cottage was perfect! It was clean ,very modern ,very cute.It had everything we needed.We had two adults and four teenagers and even though the cottage is small ,we had enough room.Its so close to everything .We loved the beach around the corner.We had so much fun browsing through the town of Frankfort and all of its shops.We spent two days at the Sleeping Bears Dunes once to sight see and another time to canoe.The canoe trip was amazing and the shallow river was absolutely gorgeous with it's sandy bottom and beautiful scenery. I loved that everything was so close ,the beach ,restaurant's,the grocery store ,Frankfort, even Slepping Bear was a pretty short drive. The cottage was like a home away from home and I appreciated how clean and updated it was.The only thing I could not believe was the really great price.The owner was most helpful and so accomendating. Thanks for making our vacation great.
