I grew up downstate and our family vacationed in this area. The pristine beauty of the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Lake Michigan Beaches, and the rolling hills of the open countryside captivated me from an early age. Out of all the little towns along the coastline, Frankfort is is the place that I kept coming back to. It's a little like stepping back in time; life seems more simple here. I found the house in 2001 and bought it as a long-term investment. We've put some 'elbow grease' into it and made improvements since then. It has been a lot of fun and the kids have made some happy memories here; fishing off the pier, canoeing the Betsie River, enjoying the house as a winter getaway. We hope that you will enjoy your stay here.
Dave Clixby purchased this house in 2001
There is so much to see and do in this part of the state! It is a great central location to explore from. Traverse City and Manistee are a 45 minute drive. The Sleeping Bear Sand Dune National Park begins just outside of town. Herring Lakes and 'Watervale' are to the south and the Leelanau Peninsula is to the north. Also there is something special about the Betsie River flowing into the Bay and then out to Lake Michigan.
Sunsets on the pier. exploring the dunes, out of the way beaches & incredible golf courses and Crystal Mountain Ski Resort are only a few minutes away. You can walk only 2-3 blocks to the Boat Launch, Fishing Dock, Grocery Store, Ice Cream Shop, Antique store, Downtown Shopping, Library, Tennis Courts, Bike Trails, Coffee Shop and Night Life. The Frankfort Beach is 8- blocks away.
Scott was a delight to deal with. We had several over the phone interactions prior to move in and I felt very comfortable opening the house to him. No problems with a clean check-out. He is welcome back anytime...
We were very lucky to find this place at the last minute. You can't beat the location in Frankfort - the house is very comfortable - plenty of space. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the morning while drinking coffee and relaxing on the sofas after a long day. Dave, the owner, was very gracious and helpful throughout the process. Great experience and now our go-to when we need to escape to Frankfort and Northwest Michigan.
A good rental on a quiet street. Very appreciative of the owner's cooperation and adjustments.
Wonderful home in the heart of Frankfort. We enjoyed relaxing on the front porch and the proximity to the town and the nice park for the kids. The house had all we needed to enjoy our stay!
What a great place to stay! This home is so warm and inviting, comfortable and close to all the things I love about Frankfort. Fall colors are on show right now and this location is a great springboard to this part of Michigan.
I will be returning in the summer and next fall as well. I recommend it highly and the owner is friendly and helpful.
We stayed at the Blue House the week of Halloween. The neighborhood is delightfully quaint and the house is clean, spacious and lots of fun. There were lots of things to do and see like the pumpkin drop, carving, and tossing pumpkins. We enjoyed the beaches and bike trails, and what a great downtown! Would definitely stay there again...
We have stayed at the "Blue House" 2 years in a row. Not only was the owner professional but he was friendly and prompt to reply. We enjoy fishing. There are very nice bike paths which you can ride on.
We love going to Point Betsie Lighthouse to walk on the beach. Sleepying Bear Dunes National Park is a nice place to visit and enjoy the natural beauty. We usually go to the Farmer's Market and recommend "Brown's" homeade pies they are delicious! Definitely a relaxing place to stay. Looking forward to going back.
We have a small 10'x10' basketballpad & hoop for the kids. The city park is 2-blocks North and has
basketball and tennis courts. The house is 2 blocks North of the public boat launch and town grocery store.
It is a very convenient location.
