Elberta is the hidden gem of northern Michigan. There is so much to see and do in a close proximity. Frankfort is a close, two minute drive around Betsie Bay. This is one of the most beautiful stretches of Lake Michigan you will ever experience.
The breathtaking scenery and picturesque sunset will have you coming back year after year.
Betsie Bay is known as one of the premier spots in Michigan for charter fishing.
The famous M-22 drive is just minutes from our cottage, and stretches from Manistee to the Sleeping Bear Dunes.
One of the few remaining Drive-In Theatres' in northern Michigan is a short drive from the cottage.
Within walking distance to Trick Dog Coffee shop & Elberta Community Park & Beach on Lake Michigan. Walking distance to local resturants & biking enthuisiats will enjoy the Betsie Valley Trail, that stretches from Elberta to Beulah.
We had a wonderful stay at the Shipyard Cottage in June. We put in our kayaks right behind the cottage, and paddled upstream and then floated down. The bike path to Frankfort was so helpful, and on our way back one evening, we were surprised by fireworks overhead.
The cottage is very tidy and clean. Nice, clean bathroom! We enjoyed the two main rooms, used the picnic table and grill, and generally had a good time relaxing, kayaking and biking. Will definitely rent again!
We really enjoyed our stay here. The cabin was just perfect for our small family. You can tell that it has been recently refurbished as everything was clean and fresh. Granted it's not beach front property but the Elberta Beach is just about a 1/2 mile away and is as nice as any ocean beach I've seen. Three great resturants are within walking distance-go to the Trick Dog Cafe for coffee and cinnamon rolls, hit the Conundrum Cafe for lunch and you can't beat the Cabbage Shed for dinner (my favorite-the pretzel crusted Walleye). The fishing was great-we landed 10 King Salmon averaging around 10 to 12 pounds each!
We stayed here over the 4th of July week this year and it was perfect. The cottage is very clean and beautifully decorated. Air conditioners worked great (quite hot). It's on a quiet street in Elberta and just about 5 minutes from the busy side of the Frankfort beach and 2 minutes to the quiet Elberta beaches...we preferred Frankfort. We cooked every night - stove, refrigerator, grill were all great. We sat on the back porch looking out over the Betsie Lake and a deer and her two fawns came running home every night at about 9:30 p.m. Really nice. The cottage is on a quiet street in little Elberta (we had never been there) where there are several cottages being updated and others that are not. Owners were very nice to deal with. Highly recommended!
This quiet nice two bedroom cottage is conveniently located in Elberta with easy access to the bike trail and just minutes from the wide open Elberta beaches. Futon in one bedroom with A/C, firm Double in the other. One other A/C for the main area. Full bath. Owners very easy to deal with and prompt in all responses.
We stayed here with our two children. It gave us some space to spread out in. Quiet street in overlooked Elberta. Right on the bike trail to Frankfort and Beulah. Owners provided plenty of towels and bedding. Very nice remodel. Contact with owners was prompt and efficient. Very clean and well-maintained. We loved the Road House restaurant in Benzie.
Very nice cottage, we really enjoyed our time there. Very clean, fully equipped, made with love. We really felt like home. My 3 years old son told: " I want it to be my home."
Fishing was just great - lots of pikes in Betsie Lake!!!
Beautiful Crystal Lake's beach is just 8 miles away.
Hope we'll be able to come back next summer.
Famous M-22 Drive, Sand Dunes & miles of beautiful northern Michigan lakeshore.
