Nice large property

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 6, 2013

We had a great time. A couple of suggestions would be a new/different coffee pot. New tablecloth for dining table...we brought our own. Plenty of eating space for a large group. We used the porch table and chairs. We liked being close to grocery story and downtown was only a short walk. It was cool when we were there so only went to the beach three days except for nightly beach walks. One shower made for some pre-planning every morning, but we survived. The kitchen is small, but we had no problem fixing meals for our crew. Lots of dishes available. We liked the clothesline for hanging out towels to dry.
Overall, a nice large property
Owner's Response: Coffee Pot has already been replaced and the tablecloth is a real easy fix. Next year I plan to add a shower kit around the upstairs tub. There will be other new amenities added next year but need to hear from more of my guests as to what area needs it the most.

Thank you so much for taking the time to make me aware of your likes/dislikes. I hope you will come back next year to enjoy all that Frankfort has to offer.

Sleeping Bear Dunes is one of the most famous activities of Northwestern Michigan. This is one activity that you won't want to skip.

If you are into biking you will want to try out Frankfort-Elberta beach-to-beach trail. 4.2 mile trail connecting the beaches of Elberta and Frankfort. The trail also connects to the Betsie Valley Trail which goes from Frankfort-Elberta through Beulah to Thompsonville (22 miles).

If golfing is what you are after you will want to try out Champion Hills--Beulah, Frankfort Public Golf Course, Pinecroft Golf Course--Beualh or Crystal Mountain--Thompsonville. All of them are excellent courses.

If you are into the arts you will have to visit Interlochen Center for the Arts a home to the Interlochen Arts Festival, an annual presentation of more than 750 student, faculty and guest artist events. Corsen Auditorium, Interlochen's premier indoor venue, accommodates up to 1,000 people for music, theater and dance productions. Interlochen Center for the Arts is located 16 miles southwest of Traverse City.

For a local artist you will want to visit Gwen Frostic's well-known original block prints are featured at this wildlife sanctuary and printing shop. Open May-November, Monday-Saturday. No admission Charge.

If canoeing is your scene then you will want to try out the Upper Platt River that flows around the town of Honor. The upper portion of the river is better suited for more experienced canoeists; the lower portion is slower-paced for family-style canoeing and flows through the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake shore to Lake Michigan.

Don't forget the wineries. If you travel around the Leelanau Peninsula there are several wineries within the area.
