Frankfort cabin description

Closed for winter, open spring 2014. 60' of private frontage on sandy bottom Lower Herring Lake, sandy beach, gradual drop-off, private dock. New carpeting, furniture, refinished interior walls, fireplace glass doors.
We also have a house on the water 3 doors north, vrbo 370427 that sleeps 8-10. House comes with access by boat or car (parking pass) to miles of beautiful, private beach on Lake Michigan (see photos). This is pristine, undeveloped beach, which Jerry Dennis said in the June 2006 Traverse Magazine article, 'The Greatest Walkabout', 'It is surely one of the most pristine beaches in the world, broad and clean, with elaborate back dunes blending into forests'...saved from development by the Noble family. Half of the lakeshore on Lower Herring Lake is in a privately held protective easement, which means there is very little boat traffic and your view of the sunset is over pristine forest.
We are 1/4 mile from the paved road through the woods, very quiet and peaceful. Deer and wildlife sightings are frequent. Large grass lawn on the lake is perfect for games, BBQs, fires etc. Satellite TV, WIFI, and all linens provided except beach towels provided. Many other rentals are bring your own linens.

Watch postcard perfect sunsets over either lake. We are 6 miles south of Frankfort, MI, 5 miles north of Arcadia. Rails to trails bike paths close by, or pedal around Upper Herring Lake through the orchards. Canoe and rowboat included. Second lake front house also available, 3 doors down that sleeps 8-10, VRBO #370427.

Keywords: Cabin, Lakefront, Lower Herring Lake, Frankfort, Arcadia, Rowboat, Kayak.

                  About the owner: Please see guest feedback and reviews on our other rental house, VRBO 370427, all 5-stars.

                  Why the Owner Chose Frankfort:
                  The beauty of Lower Herring Lake and proximity to Lake Michigan are unparalleled.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Access to miles of private Lake Michigan beach (otherwise posted), which is owned by the Noble family through the Watervale Inn. Even during peak summer season on Lake Michigan, as far as you can see in both directions, there are few people.
