This is pristine, private, and undeveloped beach for miles, with dunes blending into forests. Lake Michigan beach is like Sleeping Bear without the park rangers or fees. Never a crowd and often never anybody. Miles of beach was saved from development by the Noble family through the Watervale Inn. We only rent by the week in July and August. NEW kayaks, paddleboards, lifejackets, TV, furniture in 2018.

We are 1/4 mile from the paved road, very quiet and peaceful. We also have a 3 bedroom cottage on the lake for rent 3 doors down (vrbo 398063). 10 French doors overlook the lake, cherry wood floors, granite counters, modern see thru deck fence, Satellite and Netflix TV. Watch postcard perfect sunsets over either lake. We are 6 miles south of Frankfort, 5 miles north of Arcadia.

Upper level has great room, 3 bedrooms (queen, double, 2 twins, and a 3/4 bath, lower level has 1 bedroom (queen), den with trundle (2 twins) and a bunk bed (2 more twins) and 2 bathrooms.

Herring Lake connects to Lake Michigan via a shallow, sandy stream directly across the lake.

Amenities: All linens provided, canoe, 2 kayaks, life jackets, paddles, full kitchen, gas stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, satellite TV, Netflix WIFI, DVD/VCR player, beach chairs, water softener, firewood for beach fires on Lake Michigan, propane grill, 50 kid DVDs and grown up movies, games, deck table with 4 chairs.

Miles and miles of rails to trails bike paths in the area, running between Elberta, Frankfort, Beulah and Thompsonville. SUP, pontoon boat, speed boat and sailboat rental available right on the lake, delivered to your beach.

Beautiful water view and stunning sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

Pete is a gracious host ready to make your stay comfortable. Close to quaint Frankfort with its nice beach, food and shopping. We had 8 in our group and there was room for everyone. It was uncharacteristically hot during our week, so it got a bit hot in the house. Fun to open all the windows and doors and hear the birds and the breeze rustling in the leaves.

Our Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place for our family to spend time together! Beautiful, clean, spacious gathering area, everything you could possible need in the kitchen, lots of bedrooms and bathrooms for all the kids and grandkids, and of course the gorgeous view and sunsets every evening. Lots to see and do in the area too. Everyone had such a great time. We can't wait to come back again!
