Frankfort Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Closed for winter, open spring 2014. 60' of private frontage on sandy bottom Lower Herring Lake, sandy beach, gradual drop-off, private dock. New carpeting, furniture, refinished interior walls, fireplace glass doors.

We also have a house on the water 3 doors north, vrbo 370427 that sleeps 8-10. House comes with access by boat or car (parking pass) to miles of beautiful, private beach on Lake Michigan (see photos). This is pristine, undeveloped beach, which Jerry Dennis said in the June 2006 Traverse Magazine article, 'The Greatest Walkabout', 'It is surely one of the most pristine beaches in the world, broad and clean, with elaborate back dunes blending into forests'...saved from development by the Noble family. Half of the lakeshore on Lower Herring Lake is in a privately held protective easement, which means there is very little boat traffic and your view of the sunset is over pristine forest.

We are 1/4 mile from the paved road through the woods, very quiet and peaceful. Deer and wildlife sightings are frequent. Large grass lawn on the lake is perfect for games, BBQs, fires etc. Satellite TV, WIFI, and all linens provided except beach towels provided. Many other rentals are bring your own linens.

Watch postcard perfect sunsets over either lake. We are 6 miles south of Frankfort, MI, 5 miles north of Arcadia. Rails to trails bike paths close by, or pedal around Upper Herring Lake through the orchards. Canoe and rowboat included. Second lake front house also available, 3 doors down that sleeps 8-10, VRBO #370427.

Keywords: Cabin, Lakefront, Lower Herring Lake, Frankfort, Arcadia, Rowboat, Kayak.

Joe Turner purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Joe Turner chose Frankfort

The beauty of Lower Herring Lake and proximity to Lake Michigan are unparalleled.

What makes this cabin unique

Access to miles of private Lake Michigan beach (otherwise posted), which is owned by the Noble family through the Watervale Inn. Even during peak summer season on Lake Michigan, as far as you can see in both directions, there are few people.

a 'gem' of a vacation spot

We had a great vacation at Lower Herring Lake!!!(4 adults/4 children)The cabin was clean and cozy. The fireplace warmed us up on a chilly night and the porch was great for storing all our gear. We also appreciated that the owner supplied the bedding/ towels and a list of things to do in the area. We visited the breathtaking Sleeping Bear Dunes, biked the rail trail, watched the salmon jump a local dam, waded in the Platt River but the best place of all was at the cabin. We marveled at the sunsets, enjoyed the fire pit, gazed at the stars, fished off the pier and canoed/rowed to beautiful Lake Michigan. The owner was a pleasure to work with and he made the renting process very easy. We would definitely recommend this vacation spot and would love to come back, again!!! Oh...and we found two Petoskey stones!!!

Fantastic place to unwind in "old up North" style

We visited with our two small children and had a perfect vacation. The cabin is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. We had a few chilly days and the fireplace and hot shower were great. The lake is crystal-clear and we enjoyed viewing the wildlife (swans, herons, painted turtles, etc.) We caught and ate a few walleye from the lake, and visited the Lake Michigan beach several times. Frankfort/Elberta was a convenient 10-minute drive, with a nice grocery store, Moomer's ice cream, and several great playgrounds for the kids. All in all, this is a great place to relax in a gorgeous natural setting.

such a great view

  • 4 of 5
When we initially arrived, we thought there's no way this could be the place. It looked small on the outside but the moment we stepped in we felt home. The place is gorgeous and we canoed to the other side of the lake for a spectacular view of lake MI. Would definitely reccomend to everyone.

We picked this location because of it's location. We have spent four years in a row at Lower Herring lake .
Why ? The beauty - Clean water - No homes on half of the lake - Access to Lake Michigan - The fishing -
Eagles - Deer - Hiking trails - Kayaking - Swimming - Camp fires - Sunsets - Low boat traffic .

This rental is a quaint cottage , rustic , comfortable beds, fantastic window views of the lake.
