Car: Recommended

Frankfort is a delightful city where all the essentials are within walking distance and, as a bonus, it is perched on the shore of the most beautiful of the Great Lakes, Lake Michigan.

This combination of beach town and small town make it a most wonderful destination for an easy and relaxing vacation.

Frankfort offers restaurants with a wide range of cuisine and atmosphere, a quality book store, no less than four ice cream shops, shopping and even its own micro-brewery at The Storm Cloud where live evening music can be enjoyed many nights.

A bicycle is advantageous for quick trips to the Crescent Bakery for morning sweets or to Petals & Perks if someone else is to make the coffee. It also provides access to entertainment on the Betsie Bike Trail or around the bend to the open air Shakespeare Theatre in the Park.

Bicycles, paddle boards and other water toys are available for rent in town and kayaking, canoeing or tubing can be arranged through several nearby liveries.

Sleeping Bear Dunes are just a 40 minute drive (28 mi) north on M22 where a 'dune climb' is a must for the young and fit. Be sure to plan your trip to include a stop in Empire for a famous burger and a cold one at Joe's Friendly Tavern.

For winter skiing, Crystal Mountain provides over 50 runs and several high-speed lifts.

The Frankfort area boasts several farmer's markets to provide farm fresh fruits and vegetables for delicious eating on your vacation.

The Betsie Bay Lighthouses is open for touring and educational experiences for young and old.

The Frankfort public beach is easily accessible by foot, bike, or car with free parking, public washroom, swings, volley ball nets and a wide clean sandy beach for sunning, napping, swimming and playing. The sunsets are not to be missed; bring the camera! Ask us about the special secret beach nearby where you can enjoy a campfire at the waters edge.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We stopped in Frankfort while on a bicycle trip around Crystal Lake and it was love at first sight. That was more than 20 years ago. After years of planning and researching, we have finally settled on a place where we can welcome family, friends and guests to share in our Michigan retreat.

Why the Owner Chose Frankfort, MI, USA:
Dating back to 1890, this property is one of the early homesteads in Frankfort. The large yard with house and cottage provide us plenty of room to relax. The property is located on one of the most desirable streets in Frankfort and is a 5 min walk to the beach or bakery.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This property's location offers quick and safe access to the beach without having to worry about traffic which was a top priority for us. We want parents and children alike to feel safe on their jaunts to the beach. This ideal location makes it easy to return home for lunch or head down to the beach after dinner for spectacular sunsets.
