About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

INTERNET • CABLE TV • OUTDOOR GAS GRILL • FIRE PIT • 5 BICYCLES • WASHER-DRYER

Narrow Escape Rental sits in a quiet neighborhood in the village of Elberta with a short walk to Betsie Bay, just a half mile from the shores of Lake Michigan and one mile around the bay from Frankfort. Our 900 square foot rental has a private back yard with a privacy fence that backs up to a wooded bluff, and is just 150 yards from Elberta’s waterfront park and the Life Saving Station — a popular venue for weddings and events.

The area is full of recreational outdoor opportunities and a number of good coffee shops, restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. In addition to typical amenities, the rental includes five bicycles for exploring the area. Internet service and a gas grill is also available.

The house has a roomy main living space with a comfortable seating arrangement. The three bedrooms include beds of the following sizes: a queen in the master bedroom, a full size in room 2, and three single (twin size) beds in room 3 (a built-in bunk with an extra third bed). The dining table seats six people, and the bathroom includes a washer and dryer for your convenience. The kitchen is furnished with custom cabinets, a full-size stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, electric stove, coffeemaker, dishes and utensils.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Clark and Lynne Most: We are graphic designers who live in Midland, MI and run a graphic design business called 'RedPoint Design Direction' . Clark also is a professor at Central Michigan University where he teaches graphic design. We have three children, 2 cats and a chihuahua and have been enjoying our trips to the Frankfort area for about 15 years.

Why the Owner Chose Elberta, MI, USA:
The location is just one block off the main road in Elberta that goes to the beach and i love the bluff area directly behind the house. I also like the Elberta side of Betsie Bay because it is quieter than the north side. The rental has a great location being close to the bike trails, Trick dog coffee house, Elberta Park and Elberta beach on Lake Michigan.
