About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our vacation home is in a quiet location only a short walking distance to Betsie Bay and the beautiful Lake Michigan beach. The Betsie Valley Trail, shops and restaurants and marina are right around the corner. The home is newly renovated and we did recover the natural wood floors and added a new wood floor in the living area.
The house has a roomy living space with a fireplace and a comfortable seating arrangement with plenty of natural daylight. Both private bedrooms have easy access to the bathroom. The spacious dining room has plenty of seating for a large family.

The large open kitchen has a dishwasher, gas stove, drinking water filter, full-size refrigerator and more-than-adequate counter space as well as all the utensils and dishes you'll need for your vacation.

Our large, fenced-in yard with picnic table and barbecue gas grill invites you and your family to enjoy outside dinning.

Keywords: Quiet, convenient location, family-friendly, close to restaurants, shopping, library, marina, bike trail, large yard, four season, gas fireplace, spacious, large kitchen, washer and dryer, golf, sailing, boating, skiing, cross-country skiing.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: It was always our dream to live on the shores of Lake Michigan after we spent the last 10 years sailing on a lake in Wisconsin. Frankfort offers everything we like, i.e. sustainable living, farmer's markets, biking, paddling, and skiing (opportunities to be active outdoors all year around) as well as cultural events in and around town. Growing up close to Frankfurt Germany, I always wanted to visit Frankfort Michigan.

Why the Owner Chose Frankfort, MI, USA:
For the last twenty years we have spent our summer vacations on Lake Michigan. This year we visited Frankfort for the first time and fell in love with the city and area. We know that we have found the perfect location and can imagine spending the rest of our lives in this area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tucked away in a quiet location and still in the middle of it all. Forget the car and walk to the beach, harbor, stores, shops and restaurants or take a bike ride along the beautiful Betsie Valley Bike Trail. The large fenced-in yard will be the perfect playground for our future grandchildren. We also enjoy hiking along Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore or canoeing on the Platte River, both only 15 minutes away.
