Great location, private, clean, and comfortable. Not to mention Al is fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic experience staying at Al's. He was an incredible host and our room was everything we hoped for...clean, cozy, and convenient. I would 100% recommend staying here and we will be doing so if we decide to visit the area again.

Great Up North Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our fall color getaway at Al's place! Our rooms were clean and spacious and Al was very accommodating. He advised us as to where and when the best color could be found. Al went out of his way to make our stay pleasant and memorable. We would return at a future date!

Very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a long weekend at this B&B, the pictures of the property are very accurate and the cleanliness of our accommodations were superior. Alfred was a very friendly and accommodating host, the surroundings are very quiet and peaceful. The location is close to Crystal Mountain, Frankfort and Traverse City, and Alfred bakes fresh pies every day. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a quiet and comfortable get away, will definitely stay there again when back in that area. Jane/Toledo, OH

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Alfred's house for a weekend and were delighted by how great the place is. It is much more spacious and nice than it is on the pictures. Very neat and clean. Alfred was such a gracious host, he helped us with directions at 2.30 am (!) as we couldn't make it earlier to the house and gave us some great tips about things to do in the area. We purchased his home made apple and cherry pies for our morning breakfasts, they were delicious. We would definitely stay at Alfred's place again!

Perfect place to get away

  • 5 of 5

We really wanted some peace and quiet, and this place had it! Al is super nice, and wants to ensure you have everything you may need. He drew us a map to a bunch of local "secrets", and we did them all. The gorge is stunning- don't miss out on that one. Room is perfect for two, super clean and private with lots of property surrounding the rental. Location is great too- very convenient to hiking, biking, canoeing/kayaking, and lots of restaurant choices about 15 minutes away. If you need your tv or internet fix, he has that too, but you have that at home, right? GO for a hike, look at the stars, enjoy a drink on the patio, unplug and enjoy!

Super Clean and quite room

  • 5 of 5

This one is a winner and we will be back!! The location was nice for many areas of travel/activities, we could ride our bikes over to Crystal mountain trails and Lake Michigan was only a 20 minute drive. The room is super clean and comfortable, with a nice patio for morning coffee and relaxing.

The host is delightful and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable!

This is a good one!

Car: necessary

I would highly recommend downtown Frankfort as a day of shopping. I also give hand drawn maps of local interest, a mystery spot where your car rolls up hill, a deep ravine that you must see to believe and a Metor that is used for a head stone and i will show where this is mentioned in books
