Maybe you weren't born in a barn, but why not vacation in one?...
Creatively designed and decorated to resemble a barn, but comfortable and cozy with a touch of class. The home is also setup with the family in mind, with separate areas for adults, and little ones alike. Enjoy panoramic views of Upper Herring Lake from the 3rd floor. This huge 2600 sq. ft. home is in a word, FUN !
Located on all-sports Upper Herring Lake with 140' of private water frontage, this 5 bedroom, 2 bath Rental on a Michigan Lake sits on 2.5 acres on a quite, peaceful country road surrounded by a perfect blend of rolling hills, woodlands, orchards and vineyards.
Privacy and elbow room await you in this beautifully decorated home. Just minutes from Lake Michigan beaches, Frankfort and near many of Northern Michigan's premier vacation spots such as The Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City.
Also, just down the boardwalk through the protected natural area, await enough waterfront amenities to fill a barn! There is a row boat, 2 kayaks, 1 towable water trampoline w/tow rope, life jackets in various shapes & sizes, full dock w/moorings for extra boats, fire pit w/chairs, rope hammock, chaise lounge, and as an extra bonus we include the use a pontoon boat free of charge ( a $1,000 value, see Amenities for details). Oh, and did we mention 10 gallons of free premixed fuel!

About Tammy Jobson

Tammy Jobson purchased this House in 2005
Why Tammy Jobson chose Frankfort
The Barn Cottage is located on a quiet country road in Benzie County Michigan. The home, though new, was designed to resemble the old barns and farmhouses on this quiet, orchard-laden road.
What makes this House unique

Property was as described, well stocked & Clean
We were very happy with the property. Not only was it clean but it was well stocked, beds were comfortable as was the furniture. We will definitely be back.
Beautiful home and perfect location
Family of 8 adults slept very comfortably. Enjoyed the big dining table for meals and games at night. Short drive to Crystal for skiing and to Arcadia dunes for hiking. Enjoyed a local winery. Home is very nice with a lot of room on a beautiful lot on a lake. Would cone back in a heart beat.
Great time was had by all!!
LOVED staying at the Barn Cottage!!
Two families stayed here for an entire week. There is so much to do here. The adults got the top floors and all the cousins were able to hang out in all their glory in the lower level which had a game area all set up for them (pool table, games, play station and tv.) There was even a swing set right outside this area for when the kids needed to get out.
We went to the beach in Frankfort, we caught fish from the pontoon boat, us girls took the kayaks out early in the morning one day, we actually caught a Drive-Inn Theater!, we ate in Frankfort and in Traverse City, we slept in most mornings (comfy beds), and we are all so, so much closer!!!!!!!! Thank you so much Blue Lakes Vacation Rentals for sharing your home with us.
Amazing, Charming, and FUN!
We loved our stay at the Barn Cottage!
The decor is beautiful (lovely furnishings), charming (antique farm tools), and amusing (hilarious signs/posters)!
The house was spotless, with every amenity we needed. Booking was very friendly and easy.
We enjoyed the pontoon boat, kayaks, fire pit, hammock, pool table, games, movies...the list goes on (we kept saying: "They've thought of EVERYTHING for the perfect amazing vacation!" ).
The setting is gorgeous: it feels like you're in a tree house when looking out the windows or sitting on the deck. There is a long wooden board walk that meanders through the woods back to the lake. The walk is just beautiful and so relaxing- then you arrive at the breathtaking lake! Wow! So pretty and, again, outfitted with everything you want or need: deck, fire pit, fire wood, chairs, hammock, life jackets, pontoon boat, row boat, kayaks....
Can't wait to return!
Comfy & Cozy!
Can't tell you how glad we were to find this place to rent on the internet! Not an easy task to find a place to accommodate 14 people . . .
The "barn" is comfy & cozy. Plenty of space for all of us to find a place to hang out and do our thing.
The color tour we took at this time of year was incredible. Even our 3-year old woke up one morning and asked if we were staying another day in our "beautiful house"!
Thanks for your hospitality!
