Frankfort house description


For your Fall Color Tour, Cozy Family Thanksgiving, Holiday & Winter Ski Getaways, Spring Break, and Summer Vacations!!

Built new in 2004, this cottage-style home features 2,000 sq.ft. of living space with four large bedrooms, and two full bathrooms. Hardwood flooring, ceramic tile, Tongue & groove pine, and 'Cottage' decor adorn the interior. The home has also been designed with 'Family Fun' in mind, with separate spaces for grown-ups, and little ones alike. 

Relax on the back deck, and enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Upper Herring Lake, breathtaking sunsets, or maybe catch a glimpse of the eagle that nests nearby. Whatever your enjoyment, this home has it all.

Just a few miles from awesome Lake Michigan beaches. Minutes south of Frankfort, Benzonia, and Beulah for shopping, dining, and sightseeing. You're also close to some of Michigan's best vacation spots, Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and Platte River.
The Beach House on all-sports Upper Herring Lake offers 80 feet of private sandy beach frontage just 40 feet off the back deck!  As an extra bonus we will include the use a Pontoon boat free of charge (a $1,000 value, see Amenities for details). Did we mention 10 gallons free premixed fuel?!
