About the Property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Open again April 2016. 60' of private frontage on sandy bottom Lower Herring Lake, 20' of sandy beach, gradual drop-off, private dock. New carpeting, furniture, refinished interior walls, fireplace glass doors.
We also have a house on the water 3 doors north, vrbo 370427 that sleeps 8-10. House comes with access by boat or car (parking pass) to miles of beautiful, private beach on Lake Michigan (see photos). This is pristine, undeveloped beach, which Jerry Dennis said in the June 2006 Traverse Magazine article, 'The Greatest Walkabout', 'It is surely one of the most pristine beaches in the world, broad and clean, with elaborate back dunes blending into forests'...saved from development by the Noble family. Half of the lakeshore on Lower Herring Lake is in a privately held protective easement, which means there is very little boat traffic and your view of the sunset is over pristine forest.
We are 1/4 mile from the paved road through the woods, very quiet and peaceful. Deer and wildlife sightings are frequent. Large grass lawn on the lake is perfect for games, BBQs, fires etc. Netflix TV, WIFI, and all linens provided except beach towels provided. Many other rentals are bring your own linens. We only rent by the week in July and August.

Watch postcard perfect sunsets over either lake. We are 6 miles south of Frankfort, MI, 5 miles north of Arcadia. Rails to trails bike paths close by, or pedal around Upper Herring Lake through the orchards. Canoe and rowboat included. Second lake front house also available, 3 doors down that sleeps 8-10, VRBO #370427.
