Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a great cottage for a family with kids of any age. It is located barely a block off the beach, and within easy walking distance of the movie theater, ice cream shop and library. The cottage is well appointed, including a washer and dryer. There is not air conditioning, rarely needed, but there are fans in every bedroom.



The beach is quite and safe enough that you can leave your stuff there for a quick trip back to the cottage for lunch or a nap. For younger kids, the beach closest to the cottage is between the breakwaters so is calm. Just a short walk down the beach gets you past the breakwater and into more waves. Great on windy days for older kids.



My kids love going to town and we have been here enough that I will let them go by themselves. For bikers, there is a paved trail from the cottage to Beulah, about 11 miles. We bike it every year. Sleeping Beard Dunes is close. Alpine Slide at Crystal is great fun. You have to go to the Platte River. If you are lucky to be there over 4th of July they put on a great fireworks show.



Frankfort is just the perfect place for a vacation.

Kids' Favorite Annual Vacation... AMAZING!!!

Kids' Favorite Annual Vacation... AMAZING!!!
  • 5 of 5
The cottage is located in the perfect spot...right on Lake Michigan and also in town. You can walk everywhere you go. I have five children and they look forward to our Frankfort week each and every year. The cottage is kept clean and has plenty of space for all of us; ice cream at a local place each night, and a pizza night is our usual tradition. Otherwise, we eat all meals in the cottage and have enough room to cook, eat, and enjoy. There are also so many things to do around that area if you do choose to leave the beach for the day, such as Sleepy Bear Dunes, tubing down a nearby river, and driving to Point Betsy to see an amazing old lighthouse. I truly cannot express the joy that our whole family gets from a week at Coast Guard Pointe Cottage!!!

Great Location and Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed here for over 10 years each summer and always look forward to coming back. The house is in a great location...essentially on the beach and a couple blocks from downtown. The house is so cozy, always clean, and is a great spot for our family to stay. There is always enough room to bring our family friends for the week too. We enjoy the beach, ice cream shop a couple blocks away, and the Sleeping Bear Dunes each year. We started coming when our children were under the ages of 3 and they now always look forward to coming as teenagers. We highly recommend staying here. And if you have children, this is a great spot. Not only do you have the beach, but a nice yard for them to run around in.

Our house is located on Lake Michigan is the town of Frankfort, Michigan. This is a wonderful little waterfront town that is small and relaxing, yet provides access to fishing, canoeing, kayaking, tubing, jetskiing, biking, golfing, skiing, hiking, dune exploring, and much more! We are just south of Sleeping Bear Dunes, rated the top most beautiful place to visit by ABC's Good Morning America in 2011.

It is easy to stay and spend your entire time at the beach, on a boat on Lake Michigan and downtown Frankfort. However, there are also some great activities around Frankfort.

1. Sleeping Bear Dunes - This is about a 40 minute drive north from Frankfort. Here you can explore miles of dunes, hike through the beautiful forests, swim in beautiful glacier lakes, play and swim in Lake Michigan, and visit the great little town of Glen Harbor for wonderful food and cute shops.

2. Platte River - This is located about 20 minutes from Frankfort. The river is set up so that you may Canoe, Kayak, or tube down the river. The river ends in Lake Michigan. At the end of the river is a state and local park that is a wonderful place to spend your day. Beautiful white beaches along Lake Michigan, a warm river to play and tube in, dunes to run through and explore, and a forest with hiking trails. This is a favorite for families with not only young children, but teenagers as well!

3. Wineries in near Traverse City - Traverse City is located on Old Mission Peninsula. Grapes are grown and there are many Vineyards that you can tour through for wine tasting. There are also bike trails linking you from vineyard to vineyard. The is an enjoyable days trip if you like wine.

4. Crystal Mountain Ski and Golf Resort - We are 20 minutes from Crystal Mountain where you can spend the day golfing, biking, hiking, eating, enjoying the water park, and one of the many festivals they have through out the year (IE: Beer and Brats Festival.). They also have a sleuge mountain that you can race down the mountain on!

5. Charter Boat Fishing - Frankfort has a number of Charter Fishing boats that you can rent for a few hours, or an entire day. The last 2 weeks of August the Salmon swim up river, and there is wonderful salmon fishing during this time!

6. Crystal Lake - Located 5 minutes from Frankfort, Crystal Lake is a beautiful spring fed inland lake that is around 9 miles long. Spend a day here on a boat or jetski exploring the south bay water area, or rent sail boats and enjoy a day of sailing!

7. Pointe Betsie Lighthouse - Pointe Betsie Lighthouse is located 5 miles north of Frankfort. It is a beautiful lighthouse situated in sand dunes on a point where you can see the Manitou Islands and Sleeping Bear dunes. The beach is beautiful and provides for hours of looking for petoskey stones, as well as swimming or relaxing on the beach!

8. Betsie Valley Biking Trail - 11 miles of wonderful biking along a river and crystal lake. the bike trail is either paved or gravel and is a great day trip from Frankfort to Beulah. Along the way, stop off at a beach on Crystal Lake and swim and relax. Grab a bite to eat in Beulah, and return home to watch the sunset in Frankfort.

9. Ice Cream Shops - Frankfort has 4 wonderful ice cream shops to choose from. The Cool Spot is located 2 blocks from the house, Moomers is 3 blocks away, and Kilwins is 5 blocks away. Grab some ice cream and walk down to the beach and relax on one of the benches on the board walk.

10. Restaurants - They are many wonderful little restaurants in downtown Frankfort. In addition, for restaurants out of town, don't miss Boone's in Interlocken if you like steak, and the Manitou if you like fish. There is also Giovanni's for great italian.
