Narrow Escape Rental sits in a quiet neighborhood in the village of Elberta with a short walk to Betsie Bay, just a half mile from the shores of Lake Michigan and one mile around the bay from Frankfort. Our 900 square foot rental has a private back yard that backs up to a wooded bluff and is just 150 yards from Elberta’s waterfront park and the Life Saving Station — a popular venue for weddings and events.

The area is full of recreational outdoor opportunities and a number of good coffee shops, restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. In addition to typical amenities, the rental includes three bicycles for exploring the area.

The house has a roomy main living space with a comfortable seating arrangement. The three bedrooms include beds of the following sizes: a queen in the master bedroom, a full size in room 2, and three single (twin size) beds in room 3 (a built-in bunk with an extra third bed). The dining table seats six people, and the bathroom includes a washer and dryer for your convenience. The kitchen is furnished with custom cabinets, a full-size stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, electric stove, coffeemaker, dishes and utensils.

Why Clark Most chose Frankfort

The location is off the main road and i love the bluff area directly behind the house. I also happen to like the Elberta side of Betsie bay because it is a little quieter than the north side. The rental has a great location being close to the bike trails, Trick dog coffee house, Elberta Park and Elberta beach on Lake Michigan.

Great spot near Lake Michigan in a quiet neighborhood in the Village of Elberta. The owner has done a lot of work to nicely update the interior. Great having a washer and dryer. Nice two adult and one child's bikes; although we brought our own but were able to use a locked shed to store ours while not in use. Bring your own radio so you can listen to Interlochen music camp. TV with large screen although we did not use it. Very near the biking trail and farmers market that runs on Thursdays.

Quiet Haven with Lots to do Nearby

  • 5 of 5
This handsome small home in Elberta provides a quiet haven yet is close to almost anything you'd like to do. Literally around the corner and down the other side of the bluff you'll find a pristine Lake Michigan beach with exquisite sunsets. A 22-mile bike trail is nearby and a great farmers market happens on Wednesday. It is clean, well-maintained with all the appliances you need, real art on the walls and cool objects on display. You can drink your coffee on the deck up on the bluff that catches the sunrise. Sleeping Bear Dunes, wineries, galleries and more are day trips. Check out the Conundrum Cafe during the day, the Cabbage Shed at night and the quirky Monumental Finds around the Frankfort side of the bay.

Great Time, Lots to Do

  • 5 of 5
Finding a vacation spot for a large family, with kids' ages ranging from 17 to 8, can be difficult. This spot was perfect. The house is located a close distance from Lake Michigan, multiple beaches, a walk-out pier with lighthouse, and an excellent shopping strip in downtown Frankfort. Not far away are other great attractions that we were able to enjoy like Sleeping Bear Dunes, Crystal Lake, Traverse City, tons of little towns to explore, wineries, horse back riding, boating, fishing, eating, and more eating! All of our kids had a blast, not to mention my wife and I. We would highly recommend this spot!

Excellent Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was great for our family since we have young children. The rental is updated and extremely clean and well-maintained inside. The home was comfortable and it was wonderful to come back after a day at the beach or sightseeing and be able to make a home-cooked meal and relax. The location was perfect -- there were numerous parks close by for our kids to play, & Frankford has everything in terms of stores/restaurants. Definitely get donuts at the Crescent Bakery & check out the Conundrum Cafe which has a little bit of everything.
We also really enjoyed how accessible multiple beaches were--several fantastic beaches are a short drive from the rental -- our favorite was Glen Haven & Esch Beach.

Lastly, the owner was very helpful in answering questions & even sent me a text checking to see if we needed anything as we got settled in.

We hope to make this a yearly trip for our family!
