Skiing with Family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Loved having lots of bedrooms and two full bathrooms for the 6 of us. The slopes were only about 15 min away and the local Storm Cloud Brewery was perfect. We'd love to come again in the summer.

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great in a little town of Frankfort perfect location plenty of space and nicely decorated. Only one issue, had to do a little cleaning of animal hair on floors and one bedding, and ant control in kitchen. But, would stay again.

Owner's Response: Kim, sorry for the issues with ants and pet hair. Ants were an issue in some parts of town this year. We did spray for them and have since sprayed again. We have not seen any since. We want people to feel comfortable in our home. To do this some people do bring their pets, which we allow. That said the pet hair should have been cleaned up. We will make sure it is done in the future. For future renters. We do make every effort to make sure our home is clean and in working order. If anything is not to your liking please let us and we will do our very best to make it right. We want you and your family to enjoy Frankfort as much as we do. Best Chris and Pam

Perfect for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Location. Location. Location. This home sits directly across from a skate park, playground, basketball court and tennis court. Our grandkids spent literally hours at the playground and skate park. It's walking distance to shops, boutiques, restaurants, and the beach (little far if carrying lawn chairs, but hey, bring a wagon and you're good). It's also very close to Point Betsie Lighthouse (a family favorite) where we enjoyed a camp fire on the beach after watching the sun set. It's only 2.4 miles to a public (free) boat launch on to Crystal Lake (this year's highlight) on the road directly across from the house. It really was perfectly located for us.

The home was very spacious and features two great outdoor seating areas, the front porch (a great addition Chris and Pam!) and a wonderful backyard patio with a huge charcoal grill. Was great to kind of spread ourselves out and give each other space. This is our 19th year vacationing in Michigan and this home, by far, accommodated us, our kids and grandkids better than any home we've rented. Only downside is the limited parking. Our kids had to park at the park across the street but was really no big deal, only a little inconvenient. Because we had our boat (small) we could only get it and our truck in the driveway. But that won't stop us from returning!

Chris and Pam were great to work with and were very quick to respond to questions leading up to our stay. If you are planning a family vacation, I would highly recommend this property. We're already planning for next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We are glad you had a wonderful time!!. For future reference to you and anyone else who is renting. It does not look like it but it is legal to park directly in front of our house. You can park an extra 2 to 3 cars there. Hope this helps. Again thank you for the very nice review. Best Chris and Pam

Great spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our family vacation and we had a wonderful time. There was plenty of space for everyone and the place was in great condition. We have a 2 year old son so we really appreciated the park across the street and also the fact that the bedroom in the far back of the house was tucked away enough that he could sleep at night undisturbed even when we were still up and making noise in the living room. The owners were very helpful and responded to texts quickly. Frankfort itself was great as well - we loved the beach, the downtown strip, the proximity to the dunes, and Crystal Gardens.

Perfect location for the price!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend! We are a local group of women (Leelanau County), very good friends, 55-60 years old, who have been gathering twice a year for a retreat weekend for many, many years. Our usual March/April weekend in Lake Ann did not work out this year, so went looking on VRBO. We found the Beautiful Frankfort Michigan Home fairly quickly. It was PERFECT for our needs. Walking to town was only a few short blocks away. We all love Frankfort, and took advantage of the close proximity; going to Dinghys, Stormcloud, Fusion, Bayview Grill, Hulls, the coffee shop, and more. We had a GORGEOUS weather weekend, which we were starving for! We sat out in the front yard, the back yard, across the street at the park.....chasing the sunshine. The home was plenty big for all our needs, clean, well stocked kitchen for cooking, very affordable.....and as I stated PERFECT location for the price. Yes, we will return!! The hosts were great to work with! A big thanks to them!

The best of all worlds. Walk across the street to large park with basketball and tennis courts. Walk 4 blocks to downtown Frankfort for shopping and dining. Only a short walk farther to beautiful lake Michigan with miles of white sand beaches. In the mood for cycling? hundreds of miles of trials right out the front door. You can park your car and not use it for your entire vacation. If you want to sightsee it is only a short 20 minute drive north to sleeping bear sand dunes or 20 minutes east to Crystal Mountain ski resort. Have a truly relaxing summer vacation!!
