Frankfort Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

This cute cottage is right across the street from beautiful Crystal Lake where you have a beach with lake access. If you have a boat, no proplem, we have a mooring buoy that holds a boat up to 30 feet in length. A public boat launch is conveniently located adjacent to the property! The open floor plan is great for family fun or entertaining. Cable TV can be found in the living room as well as in the Master Bedroom. Bright and Airy best describes the feel of the decor. The spacious Living Room has an L shaped couch with plenty of seating, expansive glass sliding doors that open to a balcony that overlooks Crystal Lake. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, microwave, and dishwasher. Both bedrooms have their own bathroom. The 1st bedroom features a King Size Bed, large closet, flat screen TV, and an adjoining full bathroom. The second bedroom has bunk beds and a large closet. The lower bunk bed is a full size bed, and the upper bed is a single. Located on the South Shore of Crystal Lake, just a 5 minute drive to Frankfort, which has small town charm with boutique shopping, and great restaurants. Frankfort also offers a public beach on Lake Michigan next to the pier. Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Park, Point Betsie Lighthouse, and several spectacular golf courses are nearby.

Wonderful location and great accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Northern Michigan and what a beautiful area. The residence was clean and the boat launch and dock were perfect. Thank you for the use of your dock !! Our only suggestion would be to provide Internet access for your guests. Thank you again

A Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting the northern part of Michigan and our family loved it! The accommodations are bright, clean and well maintained. Beds are comfortable. The location is great - right across the road from Crystal Lake and a short drive to Frankfort or Beulah with Sleeping Bear Dunes Park not much farther. Betsy was very quick to respond to all inquiries and provided useful tips and suggestions about the area. I recommend this property and Betsy too for that matter!

Wonderful, relaxing experience

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at the Crystal Lake cottage. The home is very spacious, clean and well maintained. I like how it has an open floor plan which was great for entertaining. The person cooking or cleaning in the kitchen can converse with people in other rooms. It's also great if you are a parent with kids because it allows you to cook while the kids play in the same room. The view of Crystal Lake from the balcony is just beautiful. I spent a lot of time on the lake while I was there - conveniently it is located right by the boat launch. If you have never been to Crystal Lake, then you have to check it out because the lake is beautiful and the water is "Crystal" clear. During our stay, we also went into Frankfort (about a 5 minute drive) a few times. There is a grocery store there (similar to a D&W), where you can buy things to make meals, or there are a few local restaurants with great food. There is also an icecream place right by the grocery store for an after-dinner snack. I have already recommended this property to friends and relatives of mine and plan to come back next year.

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Since this is a new listing, I was a little apprehensive because there weren't any reviews yet. We just finished a week staying there with our 2 children and had a great vacation and had wonderful weather most of the time. The open kitchen and living space were great for family time. Morning coffee on the deck which overlooks the lake was very peaceful. We took a couple of day trips, one to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes Park, and another one exploring the towns nearby. My husband loved how easy it was to get our boat in the water just across the street! This was our first trip to Crystal Lake and we couldn't be more pleased. The lake and surroundings are breathtaking! We will be back!
