Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: I grew up downstate and our family vacationed in this area. The pristine beauty of the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Lake Michigan Beaches, and the rolling hills of the open countryside captivated me from an early age. Out of all the little towns along the coastline, Frankfort is is the place that I kept coming back to. It's a little like stepping back in time; life seems more simple here. I found the house in 2001 and bought it as a long-term investment. We've put some 'elbow grease' into it and made improvements since then. It has been a lot of fun and the kids have made some happy memories here; fishing off the pier, canoeing the Betsie River, enjoying the house as a winter getaway. We hope that you will enjoy your stay here.
Why the Owner Chose Frankfort: There is so much to see and do in this part of the state! It is a great location to explore from. Traverse City and Manistee are a 45 minute drive. The Sleeping Bear Sand Dune National Park begins just outside of town. Herring Lakes and 'Watervale' are to the south and the Leelanau Peninsula is to the north. Also there is something special about the Betsie River flowing into the Bay and then out to Lake Michigan.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Sunsets on the pier. exploring the dunes, out of the way beaches & incredible golf courses and Crystal Mountain Ski Resort are only a few minutes away. You can walk only 2-3 blocks to the Boat Launch, Fishing Dock, Grocery Store, Ice Cream Shop, Antique store, Downtown Shopping, Library, Tennis Courts, Bike Trails, Coffee Shop and Night Life. The Frankfort Beach is 8- blocks away.
