About the property

Proximity To Beaches, Frankfort And Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore

Lovely 6 Bedroom Victorian house for rent in the quaint village of Elberta, Michigan. This is less than two miles from downtown Frankfort and is located directly on the 22 mile Betsie Valley bike trail http://www.betsievalleytrail.org (M-22). Less than a 5 minute drive (or 15 minute bike ride) to Elberta or Frankfort Beaches and Marinas. Walk to the popular wedding venue the historic Life Saving Station, art galleries, waterfront parks and weekly farmers market. Walk a block to wonderful restaurants in Elberta. Try the Lighthouse Café (award winning breakfast) or Conundrum Café for Breakfast/lunch; Mayfair Tavern or the Cabbage Shed for lunch/dinner and night-time entertainment. There are also many wonderful restaurants in Frankfort- a short 5 minute drive or 15 minute bike ride away. The Conundrum Café offers bicycle rentals if needed. There are also plenty of water sport rental spots on the way to Frankfort. You are driving distance to golf courses, wineries, Crystal Mountain, the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore and all of the adorable towns and beautiful beaches in-between.

About Michelle O'Meara

I grew up coming to northern Michigan for summer vacations. After moving out of state, my husband, two children & I have returned to the area to vacation with extended family. I had forgotten how beautiful it is in northern Michigan!! After spending time in Cape Cod, Florida and California, these are still my favorite beaches...

Michelle O'Meara purchased this house in 2014

Why Michelle O'Meara chose Betsie Lake

We fell in love with the Frankfort area and I fell in love with this Victorian. We have put many hours of sweat equity into this house, but it has been a wonderful experience. We can't wait to spend some time up here and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Cute house! Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Great house, clean, bring TP and paper towels. Not quite large enough for 16 but good for 12. Nice new kitchen, plenty of dishes, coffee pot didn't work luckily we had brought one, plenty of beds but officially only 4 queens, the rest are bunk or pull outs or trundle but totally worked for us. Good location for skiing Crystal Mountain and great location for summer vaca looks like there's a cute beach town 5 min away. I would stay again.

Great for a weekend up north!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for a girls' weekend and really enjoyed the house! The updated kitchen was gorgeous and we loved the charm of this old fashioned home. There was plenty of space in the dining room and two main rooms for our large group. The bathrooms and bedrooms were clean and the backyard had a bunch of great outdoor furniture. It was just a short walk to the small Elberta strip and a short drive into Frankfort. Our only complaints were that the beds weren't very comfortable and that the fuses kept blowing the whole time (too many ladies trying to dry their hair at once), but the management was quick to respond to questions and it was a great deal for the price. We would definitely go back again and stay at the "Candy House".

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review! I apologize again about the fuse issue- we are having an electrician take a look. Mattresses are new but we will see what we can do to make the beds more comfortable in the future. Thanks again!

Beautiful house with character and lots of room!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house and yard are both large and accommodated our group of 15 (12 adults, 3 babies) with no trouble. They even had a pack'n'play and booster seat (and kid sized lawn chairs!) for us to use with the kids.

It's located very conveniently to the beach, the bike trail, and downtowns Elberta and Frankfort.

Do note that there is not central A/C, but every room has either a window unit or a fan, so we stayed cool enough. Also, bring toilet paper, paper towels, and garbage bags, as these are not provided for the whole stay.

All in all, our stay was simply delightful. Thank you!

Beautiful, Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

Large and roomy, this vacation home is located close to one of Michigan's most spectacular beaches. Bike into Frankfort or cruise on the Betsy Trail almost across the street from the house. We walked to the Cabbage Shed for dinner. The owner, TJ was very friendly and gave over the use of his in house piano for my husband to play while everyone enjoyed their food. The vacation home also has a nice sounding piano.

Great back yard, quiet neighborhood, clean kitchen, games for kids,

and nice places to read a book. Yes I would stay here again.
