Why Luann chose Frankfort

We vacationed in this area for years before Mother Nature stole our hearts and we had to move here permanently. We live next to the cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Recreational opportunities are endless...everything from water sports on both Lake Michigan and Crystal Lake to hiking along the bluffs overlooking Lake Michigan.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations and location were perfect. We were able to park the car and walk almost everywhere all week. Bike trails, water and beach activities were all just minutes from the cottage. There is an amazing bookstore and art center in town, too! Downtown Frankfort was a few short blocks walk past a delightful community of friendly people. We stayed for a week and felt that every day could not have been better. The cottage had all amenities for staying in and cooking all week if desired, but it was fun to enjoy the numerous local eateries for dinner in the evening and ice cream treats. This is a very casual, relaxed community to which I hope to return in the future.

Clean, Roomy, Bright Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 wonderful days/nights in the one bedroom cottage and we were very comfortable and extremely satisfied. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans and dishes, and all appliances were in working order. The decor is whimsical and charming - both on the outside and inside. Great little private side yard for sitting outside on the outdoor furniture either in the sun or under the shade tree. The flower box on the window is a nice touch, too. The location is perfect for a quick bike ride/walk to downtown and to Lake Michigan. So many great places like Interlochen Music Camp, Honor (for canoeing/kayaking/tubing), Traverse City, & Beulah are only 30 minutes or less away from Frankfort!

The Owner is very accomodating and cheerful, as well as incredibly helpful to newcomers. She pointed out many excursions that we could take (and did take) via bike, road, and water as well as many great places to eat and where to buy fresh Michigan berries!! I highly recommend this very charming cottage.
