This is pristine, private, and undeveloped beach for miles, with dunes blending into forests. This 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. We also have a house on the water 3 doors north, that sleeps 10-12.

About Joe Turner
We live in Chapel Hill, NC, my Dad Joe Turner handles some of the inquiries.
Joe Turner purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Joe Turner chose Frankfort
The beauty of Lower Herring Lake and proximity to Lake Michigan are unparalleled.
What makes this Cabin unique
Access to miles of private Lake Michigan beach (otherwise posted), which is owned by the Noble family through the Watervale Inn. Even during peak summer season on Lake Michigan, as far as you can see in both directions, there are few people.

Really enjoyed our stay ! Place was immaculate !
outstanding vacation experience. Fantastic views
This was a very nice cabin in a good location. Outstanding views of the lake and would definitely come back again
Great family vacation cabin.
We had a nice time, loved the lake and cabin.
Comfortable cabin, As advertised, great view!
Fabulous views, Pete was great to work with. Clean, comfortable, amazing lakes!
The exterior and interior condition was extremely disappointing, as there was cob webs everywhere, dirty windows and huge spiders.
The inside could of been a lot cleaner.
We spent $155 on a professional cleaning service several hours before guests arrived and routinely clean windows. 68 tenants over the last 4 years and never a complaint about cleanliness. 13 previous reviews, nine with 5 stars and four with 4. I wish guests had contacted me on day one and we could have cured whatever they were unhappy with in the moment or made this right.
Great location, very accomodating owners, the four stars was simply due to the musty cabin smell. But then again, it's basically what you'd expect in an older waterfront cabin :)
Rails to trails bike paths 10 min away in Elberta. Miles of private Lake Michigan beach is accessable via canoe, 10 min, or car, 2 min. Lake Michigan is ideal for kiteboarding, body surfing, sunsets, and stand up paddleboarding. The house is on Lower Herring Lake looking west towards the sunsets over preserved forests and dunes. There is very little boat traffic even during peak season. Crystal Mountain Ski and Golf Resort, 20 min away. I'll email a detailed list of hikes, bike trails, restaurants, libraries, theaters, historical museums, fishing spots etc.
