Why Luann chose Northern Michigan

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.

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.
