Beautiful condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this perfect place to stay in Frankfort. We stayed in the 3 BR 2 BA penthouse, but there are also two other 2 BR condos just as well appointed. The condo was exquisitely decorated and immaculate. The location on Main Street overlooking Betsie Bay is within walking distance of all the great shops and restaurants of Frankfort, as well as Lake Michigan. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a clean and convenient place to stay.

Spectacular penthouse in the heart of Frankfort

  • 5 of 5

The moment we walked through the door we were amazed - this enormous 3 bedroom penthouse has 2 full baths, a fully equipped kitchen and beautiful living space that opens onto a deck overlooking Main Street and the water. You can walk to shops & restaurants, or stroll along the waterfront. Onsite parking, large flatscreen TVs in the living room & master bedroom, a table that seats 16 makes this the perfect getaway for families or friends.

SHORT week spent in luxury and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

When I first saw this loft from the street when it was brand new, I knew some day I'd be staying there. My family and I weren't disappointed. Spacious and have to see it to believe it. KILLER views from the third floor balcony. We enjoyed our short 7 days and hope to return some day.

This could not be better!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Frankfort to celebrate the wedding of my son. When we walked into the condo we were overwhelmed by the view and the spacious rooms and tasteful decorating. The pictures cannot capture how beautiful this place is. Over the course of our stay many wedding attendees came to the condo to visit with us and everyone was equally impressed. It served as a great gathering place for the groom and the bride (she and her attendants got ready here and took amazing pictures). We feel we had the best accommodations Frankfort has to offer and we hope to return someday! If you are going to Frankfort this is the place to stay!

A Spacious and Beautiful Condo in Frankfort!!

  • 5 of 5

I was ecstatic walking into this condo for the very first time! My son claims his favorite thing about our trip was watching my reaction to our condo on that first day. It was so much more than what was depicted in the pictures. It was spacious and clean and accommodated our extended family of 11 wonderfully! We had plenty of space to come together, as well as, space to go our separate ways. We loved being in the midst of downtown Frankfort and the views from the patio were awesome. We enjoyed watching soccer games while eating in the Brewery and Fusion. Both the beach and the park were easy walks to make with the grand kids. We made a trip to the Sleeping Bear Dunes and climbed the dunes off the public beach as well. I can see our family coming back again and again and again!

Love Frankfort and this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We visit Frankfort every summer and this year we brought our friends from Arizona. They fell in love with Frankfort too! We all were amazed by this condo-the location is outstanding, we walked everywhere and best of all, the bookstore is right across the street, along with many good places to eat. The view from the beautiful front windows and the deck overlooking the street is gorgeous. We watched the boats go in and out of Betsie Bay every morning and night. It's also got a view of Lake Michigan that's a bonus. The condo is clean, and I mean immaculate, modern, comfortable, and has a kitchen with everything one could possibly need. The owners respond quickly to questions and seem to go out of their way to make sure everything one could possibly need is there.

There's so much to do in Benzie County. We love the farmer's markets on Saturday in Frankfort and Thursday in Elberta. We stocked up on handmade soap and creams from Creation Pharm, visited the alpaca farm and boutique on River Road, bought cards at Gwen Frostic's (also on River Road), went to Sleeping Bear Dunes, ate dinner three times at The Manitou, went to the lighthouse at Betsie Point, walked the public beach, ate at Fusion, Cresent Bakery, and Dingy's, and golfed. It was great to return to this fabulous condo everyday after our outings. Many thanks to Clara for a fantastic week.
