Property description

The Beautiful Upper Herring Lake and Herring Creek. Over two thirds of the shoreline is uninhabited. There are only 60 homes on the lake. It is unique and lovely.
Welcome to our quiet home nestled on 10 private acres and surrounded by a mixed Hardwood & Cedar forest. The creekside property opens up right into the mouth of Upper Herring Lake. This place is incredibly peaceful. - an absolute haven for birds, fish, and wildlife.
Sit out on the wrap-around deck and take in the lake sunset 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 paddling on the lake in two minutes. Watch the fish jump and eagles soar above you while you relax int your own true nature! Hike through acres of forest and collect some wood for an evening bonfire in the pit.
Your serenity is guaranteed 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.

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 in front of the house. Golf at Crystal Mountain or Arcadia Bluffs. Downtown Frankfort shopping and dining is a 12-minute drive. 25 minutes to the casino in Manistee. Visit the Wineries in Leelanau and Traverse City. Very close to The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes (voted the Most Beautiful Spot in America)

Our house is clean, comfortable and Feng -Shui inspired. Immediately 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 home and property are for those who are seeking a truly special vacation experience.
