Frankfort house description

Beautiful Upper Herring Lake and Herring Creek. Welcome to our quiet home nestled on 10 private acres and surrounded by forest. The property opens up to the mouth of the creek and right into Upper Herring Lake. This place is incredibly peaceful. - an absolute haven for birds, fish and nature's wildlife.
Sit out on the new wrap around deck and take in sunset over the lake while listening to the calming flow of Herring Creek as it meanders just 60 feet from the house. You can drop a kayak in the creek and be on the lake in two minutes. Watch the fish jump next to you while eagles soar above you while you paddle the lake! Hike through acres of forest and collect some wood for an evening bon fire in the fire pit. You are guaranteed relaxation in this incredible natural paradise. This area is one of Michigan's true hidden gems. Just 10 minutes from downtown Frankfort and even closer to Lake Michigan beach!

Although the location is private, it is very close to all the activities in the area.
Awesome pristine Lake Michigan beaches and dunes just 7 minutes away. Excellent hiking on the property or in nearby nature trails. Kayak or canoe the Betsie or Platte Rivers. Great fishing in the creek right from our bridge. Golf at Crystal Mountain or Arcadia Bluffs. Downtown Frankfort shopping and dining is a 12-minute drive. 25 minutes to fun at the casino in Manistee. Visit the Wineries in Leelanau and Traverse City. Also very close to The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes (voted the Most Beautiful Spot in America)

Our house is clean, comfortable and Feng -Shui inspired. Surrounded by a perennial garden and flanked by a wildflower meadow. The house is built as a raised ranch and it SLEEPS 6 Comfortably.
There is a fully stocked kitchen, living room, dining room, master bedroom and 2 bathrooms on level one. A private bedroom, bath and den with sleeper on lower walk out level. There is a scenic view from every window!

A terrific getaway for couples, friends or family. This place is for those seeking a very special vacation experience.
