Property description

Our family-owned cottage sits under a huge willow tree that we played under as kids. We welcome you to enjoy the quiet, savor the night sky, explore all that surrounds this beautiful area, and then cook up your latest catch at our fully furnished cottage that sleeps up to six persons. Kid and pet friendly. Ample parking for boats, ATVs, jet skis, etc. Here you have the best of both worlds, the quiet small town country feel that allows you to kick back and relax, and yet are able to get to the action of the city in 30 minutes. A BBQ grill and charcoal is provided along with outside furniture and a fire pit...a great way to end a wonderful day.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My name is Kari, as a girl I spent my summers here with my grandparents, enjoying the beauty of Northern Michigan while I worked with my grandpa around the homestead. Almost 30 years ago my grandparents were unable to keep the property due to health reasons and sold it to another family member, although I was glad it was still in the family I had always thought of it as mine. Then in 2006 my dream came true and I came home again! During the last year I have completely renovated the cottage and am excited about sharing the love I have for this place with others.

Why the Owner Chose Frankfort:
My grandparents purchased this property in 1975, at that time is was in rough shape, yet they had a vision of what could be and turned their homestead into a Benzie County landmark. Before the new boat launch went in and the road was reconfigured, all anyone would have to say is 'the V property' and it was immediately recognized.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is newly remodeled and is cozy, comfortable, quiet and beautiful. Although it is located just of of M-115 it is very quiet and almost remote feeling, except that you are centrally located in Benzie county and close to so many activities(boat launch, beaches, trails, fishing, skiing, and snowmobiling). As I furnished the cottage I put a lot of thought into what families or friends would want and need in a vacation home, and I wanted it to truly be a home away from home. With that in mind, all linens and towels are provided, there is a full kitchen with all dishware, pots and pans and utensils available. Paper products such as toilet paper, paper towels, napkins and food storage have been provided as well as charcoal for the grill. Pets are welcome! I believe this would be a comfortable place to stay for couples, families, skiers, fisherman and those who love the fall colors...all are welcome.
