Cozy Home Downtown Frankfort Short Walk to Lake Michigan Beach
average rating of 4.0 based on 6 reviews

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

Home is nice and clean, short walk to town and beach. Wish it had cable or satellite TV, but minor inconvenience really. The location is what sold me, and I was not disappointed. Frankfort is a lovely town, and the people are wonderful!!

Cute Little Cabin

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute little cabin/cottage in Frankfort. My husband and I and our two small children stayed here quite comfortably. It's only two blocks from the playground and the downtown area and a short drive to the beach. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Charming and perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Nice place to stay. Perfect location!

There was no AC and the wi-fi was iffy but the owner helped by rebooting.

It was clean and charming. I would say the futon could only sleep one.

I would recommend this place for anyone visiting Frankfort Mi.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure meeting you. Thanks for your positive review. In the meantime we exchanged a faulty wireless router. Usually the AC is not needed because there is a nice breeze from the Lake and we have a more energy efficient ceiling fan and additional room fans to keep the home cool on hot summer days. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you next year.

The Perfect Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The Beach House was the perfect cozy cottage for my young son and me. We wanted to be in town to enjoy the amenities of small town living - and the proximity to new friends - and the Beach House met all our needs. Wil and Beth were very gracious and responsive hosts. We would love to rent from them again!

a cozy little get-away

  • 4 of 5

my little family stayed a couple nights in this sweet little cottage. it was simple and had unique, charming art on the walls. it was well-equipped for how small it is. the hospitality (a personal welcome) from Beth and Wil made it feel particularly inviting. we would return here again.

the ONLY thing that i wish i had known in advance is that there aren't things like dish towels or dish clothes, nor basic kitchen staples like salt and pepper or oil. otherwise, the kitchen was really well-stocked and plenty big.

Beach house

  • 4 of 5

The house was small but very comfortable for my husband and I and if we would have had our 2 kids with us it would have been just fine. The beach was a short walk and the town of Frankfort was a great place to wander around. The sunsets were gorgeous and the bike paths were great. We enjoyed biking to Crystal Lake, a trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes, a visit to Gwen Frostic, golf and various music within Franklin. I would recommend this property and the owners were very gracious

Car: recommended

Tugged away in a quiet location and still in the middle of all the action. Forget the car and walk to the beach, harbor, stores, shops and restaurants. Take a Sleeping Bear boat cruise or rent a bike and ride the Betsie Vally Trail bike path. Kayak and Canoe rentals on the Platte River are not far or you can ski or snowboard in the winter at Crystal Mountain Ski Resort, only 20 minutes for Frankfort.
