Frankfort cabin description

CRYSTAL LAKE: return to your childhood summer vacations! Wake up early, the sun is shining, the bacon’s frying and the lake is clear and inviting. Walk out to your private sandy beach on Crystal Lake. Take a refreshing swim to the 'blue line”. Spend the day golfing, fishing, water skiing, or just relaxing. Read a book or watch the kids play. It’s your vacation!

Welcome to our LOG CABIN on Crystal Lake! Come and enjoy our two beautiful, weed-free, hard-packed, sandy-bottomed swimming beaches. Crystal Lake is known as one of the ten most beautiful inland lakes in the world and you’ll know why when you see it! What our beaches offer is plenty of sugar soft sand for castle building and a dock and swim platform for sun bathers and swimmers. The crystal clear water is perfect for children, as it is shallow until you are out beyond the dock.




The LOG CABIN sleeps five and is about 200 feet from the water’s edge and is situated among the pines, behind our WATERFRONT cottage which sleeps seven. You could have a total of twelve people with both cottages for a FUNTASTIC vacation. It is a beautiful, authentic LOG CABIN which was built by hand in 1959! The cabin is about 1000 square feet and has two living areas. A charming stone fireplace lends backwoods ambiance to the front room. The tools that built this cabin are hanging on the wall. This room contains a king size bed, a twin bed, and a pleasant sitting area. A locking door separates the front and back rooms. The back room contains the kitchen, bathroom and a curtained off 2nd bedroom with 2 twin beds. The kitchen has a stove, oven, microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, blender and dinner table to seat 10! There is also an outdoor charcoal grill outside and a stone FIRE PIT. This cottage shares the beachfront and dock with our FRONT WATER cottage. Should you be looking for another cottage , additional beds SEVEN, please contact us for we also OWN the cottage in front of the LOG cabin.

Dogs are an important member of many families. As our cottages are on a private road with just one neighbor across the road, it’s a very safe place for dogs. There is no road between the cottages and the lake. Over half the lake has the road right next to the homes or between the lakes and the property. Well-behaved dogs can run and swim to their hearts’ content! We allow Dogs in our LOG CABIN . If you are interested in bringing your dog along, please call us to discuss that possibility. There is an additional charge for each dog and we ask they not be left unattended in the cottages. We have a large dog crate on the premises.

Our LOG CABIN is in Mollineaux Bay between Frankfort and Beulah off 115. The dock and swim platform are shared for two properties. Beach chairs are in good supply! Please ask about boat rental options. If you have any questions please call or email us for additional information.


We are very proud of our LOG CABIN. They are nestled in an area we like to think of as our 'Heaven on Earth'. There are many wonderful things to do in this area. The bike path to Elberta and Beulah is only a mile down the neighborhood road. The full length of the “rails to trails” is about 24 miles. Explore the pristine North Michigan country side. Buy a cherry pie – the Cherry Hut in Beulah has been recommended by Reader’s Digest as having the nation’s best cherry pie! The beautiful city of Frankfort, Michigan, just a couple miles down the road, is a quaint, picturesque, port city with great dining, shopping, KILWIN'S ICE CREAM, and Lake Michigan Beaches. See a movie at the historic Garden Theater in Frankfort.

Bring your dog for a walk on the Lake Michigan beach at Elberta (by “Trick Dog”). The famous Sleeping Bear Dunes are less than an hour north of us! Take a day trip to Traverse City for a sail on a tall ship. Visit the Lelanau Peninsula and do some antiquing. There is always berry picking for strawberries, cherries, blueberries, or raspberries close by. Check out the always family friendly double features at the Cherry Bowl drive-in theater just down M-31 in the town of Honor.

We invite you to enjoy the beauty of Northern Michigan and enjoy the breath-taking views of one of the most beautiful lakes in the world right on your very own beachfront. The memories you make will bring you back year after year!
