Our renovated building, built in 1900, provides a beautiful and spacious location for exploring Frankfort, Benzie County and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
The back stairway takes you to the marinas, biking, and snowmobile trail along Betsie Bay. The front door provides access to the middle of downtown Frankfort. As you descend the stairs, you will enjoy the aroma of the famous Crescent Bakery and Cafe. Shopping and other wonderful dining options are within a block or two.
Crescent Bakery recently was the setting for scenes from the major motion picture 'Youth in Revolt' directed by Miguel Arteta with Michael Cera and Portia Doubleday.
Pets are welcome, however a damage / cleanup deposit is required. The deposit will be refunded if no damage occurs or extra cleanup is not needed.

A must for pet lovers/owners

The "Vista at the Crescent" was a perfect resting place during our wedding weekend in Frankfort! The apartment was immaculate, and knowing that they accept pets regularly I want Fran's cleaning tips and tricks. There was not a pet hair to be found! Our two dogs and seven people had plenty of room to spread out in the long spacious apartment after many hectic days running around town. There was nothing more we could have needed in the apartment, and we felt completely at home. The Betsie Valley Trail begins just a short walk from the bakery, and was a perfect place for our dogs to get out and explore. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with our family!

Owner response: Thank you for your most kind review.
My family and I stayed in this appt. last year and it is really nice! It's got plenty of room and is well kept. There is a nice sunroom in the back where you can hangout and enjoy a view of the harbor and a cool breeze. We enjoyed walking downstairs and getting breakfast at the bakery every morning as well. This place is very conveniently located downtown and within walking distance from everything in Frankfort. We will stay here again!
