About Patrina Nickson, Maria Whitmer

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.

Patrina Nickson, Maria Whitmer purchased this house in 2009

Why Patrina Nickson, Maria Whitmer chose Frankfort

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

What makes this house unique

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 or skiing. 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 are 135 miles of groomed snowmobile trails in Benzie county. There is also an nice private back yard to relax in.

A true hideaway

  • 4 of 5
Tucked along a side street in Elberta, Michigan, this hideaway offers a lot for the couple or small family who are looking to be close to the action of Frankfort and surrounding areas without being right in the middle of it.
Fantastic amenities, full washer/dryer, very equipped kitchen, fire pit all set in a very comfortable setting, made this getaway location ideal! Thanks to Maria for arranging all the details for us!!

Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5
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!

Charming Retreat in Relaxed Setting

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

Elberta Hideaway Vacation

  • 5 of 5
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.
