About the Property
House, 5 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Located in the Congregational Summer Assembly and just 1/4 mile from Crystal Lake and 2 miles from Frankfort, it's ideally located.
The family cottage is warm and unique -- a great gathering place for family and friends. Built in 1916 and owned by only three families in a century, it is a spot that captures your heart. Every room enjoys a view, with many overlooking Lake Michigan. It is situated on a wooded ridge and includes a private path to the lake. The cottage is beautifully furnished and well-maintained: original pine floors and bead board walls, mid-century pine paneling, windows on all sides, and furniture that has stood the test of time.
From both the lawn and the large deck, you can take in a full view of the lake. Or detour to the 1950's single-room cabin overlooking the lake and spend a few hours reading or stargazing.
Modern stuff: TV, wireless Internet, unlimited U.S. calling on landline, DVD player, and iPOD player.
First floor: One bedroom, one full bath with antique claw foot tub, and a complete kitchen with all amenities. Comfortable living area with family-sized dining table. Large sun porch with additional dining space and expansive views of Lake Michigan.
Second floor: Four cozy and lovely bedrooms, three with lake views. Shared half-bath.
Outdoors: A shower (enclosed except to the sky) overlooking Lake Michigan. It is both private and fun!
Lawn: Chairs for everyone on the lawn. Watch sunsets from here or the deck.
Second retreat: 1950's cabin overlooking the lake. Attached large deck with tables and chairs.
This is a perfect summer retreat. Share a very special spot with family and friends!

About the owner: Three generations of our family have enjoyed our cottage for over 50 years, and we have loved every summer we have lived there. It is a wonderful spot for families and anyone who wants quiet surroundings and natural beauty. The photo is of family and friends several years ago.
Why the Owner Chose Frankfort, MI, USA:
It's a 100-year-old cottage with separate cabin, renovated simply by two of the three families that have owned it in a century. Some of the original furnishings, such as brass beds, are still used. We love the privacy and beauty surrounding it, sleeping with the windows open to the sound of waves, and gathering on the deck for sunsets and meals. The walk down the path to the beach is under a tree canopy and opens to the wide expanse of Lake Michigan below. Swimming, petosky hunting, and lounging on a very secluded beach. Walk or drive less than 1/2 mile to enjoy Crystal Lake swimming, boating, and fishing.
