Amazing winter getaway!
We had an amazing time at this cabin! Arrived a few days after Christmas and stayed 3 nights. It snowed from the moment we arrived until we left -- and my family of snowboarders loved it! We snowboarded one day at Crystal Mountain, and snowshoed another day. Went into Frankfort for dinner and also the Cabbage Shed, which has the friendliest waitstaff around. The cabin itself had everything we needed. Lots of room for the kids to play in the gameroom, and the master bedroom had the best views. The huge windows let you see across the lake -- unless there was impending snow! We could hear the wind howling off the lake, eerie and beautiful! The little fireplace did a great job heating the whole place, and felt great after a day in the cold. Overall, it was an awesome place to stay in the winter. I can only imagine how beautiful it'd be in the summer with that amazing lake view. Beautiful cabin!
Excellent Up North Weekend Getaway
Our stay at the Beach House was fantastic. We stayed for 3 nights and would've loved to have been there for one more night. Spacious, clean and very comfortable for all of our guests and the dogs too. The view of Upper Herring lake made us feel like we were at our summer lakehouse in Port Huron, only with views of the beautiful sunset. We also enjoyed the short drive to downtown Frankfort. Stormcloud Brew Co. was our go-to spot for Fri. and Sat. I would definitely recommend this lovely home to other guests and I could see us coming back for an up north summer trip!
We had a wonderful family retreat at this BEAUTIFUL home on lovely Upper Herring Lake. The rooms were spacious, clean, and well-appointed. Everything was as advertised – we even enjoyed a trip around the lake in the pontoon boat. The view was spectacular, and we wouldn’t hesitate to come back another time. So happy to have found this vacation rental.
A Little Slice of Heaven!
The Beach House near Frankfort was absolutely perfect in every way. My husband and I have a very busy, stressful lifestyle and our get-a-way at The Beach House was a little slice of heaven. The photos on the website don't even do it justice. They have given much attention to every little detail to make sure the home, setting, property, etc. are immaculate, inviting and phenominally well decorated and maintained. There is a pleasing blend of sleek and modern meets french country lake house in the decor. The surroundings (even though there are neighbors near-by) are so peaceful and serene. The views of the lake, from the sunrise to sunset were unforgettable. (We were even treated to a double rainbow over the lake right in front of the house!) The beach was beautiful and very well maintained. It was really a "beach", unlike some of the dirty, muddy, lake edges of some northern Michigan vacation spots - it was "clean" and sandy and perfect for little ones as well. I loved that the house sat right at the lake's edge and you didn't have to climb down or up flights of stairs to get to the water. I loved the spacious, well-equipted kitchen and the living room was beautiful! But my favorite, by far, was the master bedroom upstairs. I could begin the morning sitting in one of the two little wicker chaise lounges sipping my coffee and reading a book. And at night the beauty of the stars were mesmerizing with an incredible panoramic view through the huge windows that faced the lake. I highly reccommend The Beach House in every way. Perfect for a couple's romantic get-a-way or for a family vacation - very spacious. It surpassed our expectations!
Beautiful, Clean and Peaceful
We stayed at The Beach House last summer. The home was immaculate!! I just loved it. We spent the days on the beach and the evenings watching the sun set, then even later enjoying a bon fire in the provided pit. It seemed like the owners thought of everything. We brought 3 kids with us and they loved it too. The kids swam, played on the beach and on the swing set. It's so nice when the whole family can enjoy something together. It was very bonding for us all - really a little life changing. It rained one night and that night we watched the sun set from our little sitting area in the master bedroom. That sitting area had windows on three sides and the breeze that would come off the lake was so wonderful. We took the pontoon boat out twice. We're not really into fishing, but instead used the boat to see the other parts of the lake and to have a picnic from it. The lake is uncrowded and unspoiled. We saw a bald eagle and many large birds (loons?). Anyway, it was a very special, bonding time for our family and we will be back.
What a great place for a great family vacation. We enjoyed the house, the boats, the lake and the fishing. We had beautiful weather the first five days and the fish were hiding on the bright sunny days. We caught a total of 20-25 fish throughout the week. Our dog loved the boat and loved fishing - a new experience for a city house dog! We also enjoyed the scenic drive through the dunes and a trip shopping in Traverse City.
Thanks for a GREAT WEEK!
