LOVE THIS HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This is such a great place! It has so much charm and character, and you can really see the love and care that went into every detail. We had everything we needed and then some! I have stayed in other vacation rentals that were not nearly this nice or well cared for, but charged much higher rates.
The town of Frankfort is adorable - clean, beautiful beach, great shops & local dining, and really nice bars with local brews & wines and live entertainment. And the area itself is full! of gorgeous lakes and parks with hiking & biking trails, etc. Lots to do for nature lovers. I was especially excited about all of the wineries & vineyards in the area.
Overall wonderful experience and will definitely come back again and plan a longer stay.

“A weekend isn't long enough”

  • 5 of 5
“A weekend isn't long enough” for a stay in this incredible, comfortable home, conveniently located to the sweet town of Frankfort and the beautiful Lake Michigan. The property is well equipped with all you need to have a true relaxing vacation.

Having separate rooms provided a great option for everyone to have a little alone time, while the great rooms provide a great spot to congregate for meals, sitting on the front porch or playing card games.

The host is very nice and was informative on how to work everything and what to do if we needed anything additional.

The reservation process was seamless, it was easy to pick up the keys and access the property. The property is very well kept. The bedding and bathrooms were spotless and comfortable. There is a washer and dryer and a fully stocked kitchen.

The owner was prompt answering any questions we had, the property was better than expected and everything on the listing was accurate. The property is clean and well maintained.
We had so much fun enjoying the wineries, the local restaurants and Crystal Lake. We were exhausted when we returned from the lake and I was so relieved that the beds were better than what we have at home. Some of the best sleep we've had in a long time.
We highly recommend this property and will be returning again!!

Nice spacious place with lots of room.

  • 5 of 5
This is our third year in northern Michigan and our second in Frankfort. The Betsie Bay house was great for us. We had seven total (2 parents, 5 kids) and there was plenty of room for all. We ate every meal on the front porch and had room in the back for whiffle ball games. It was a brief walk to downtown and to the beach. We had a couple of minor problems that Vicki resolved right away. We will try to stay here again.

Great week in Frankfort!

  • 4 of 5
The Betsie Bay House was perfect for our two families. We had plenty of space for all 9 of us and were particularly thankful for how well-stocked the kitchen was with utensils and dishes. We also really appreciated the front and back patios and yard for downtimes back at the house. Everything was clean and the owner was very responsive to questions in the weeks before we arrived.

It was a quick walk downtown for coffee and cherry fritters in the mornings and a very short drive to the beach if we wanted to load up and go for the day. (One could easily walk to the beach if you didn't need to tote beach chairs, umbrellas, and the like. Which we did enjoy doing on some evenings!) We love Frankfort and would happily return - both to the town itself and to this house!

Great Stay At Betsie Bay!

  • 4 of 5
Clean,Comfortable and spacious home provided everything we needed for a week long families vacation. Within walking distance of most everything we wanted to do. Beautiful outdoor patio/grilling area complete with a fire container/pit. Two bathrooms made it a real convenient week with several teens in the group. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for all the comforts of home. Lots to do in town and lots of walks at the beach. Make sure to hit Fusion Restaurant and the Stormcloud brewery while you are in town. The owner was very attentive before, during, and after our stay. Thanks again for a great week. I am sure we will try to make it back again.

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.
