About the Property

Plenty of room (inside and out) to breathe and relax.

This home, located just three miles from Lake Michigan, offers accommodations and a location that's close to all that is wonderful about "Up North" in Michigan and its 17+ acre setting makes it perfect for a little peace and quiet.

What makes Deerpath unique is there are complete separate living quarters on both the first and second floors. Each level has its own kitchen, laundry, bedrooms and baths, which makes it perfect for two families that want to vacation together yet maintain some space. Rental fee includes both levels.

The view of Betsie Valley and Lake Michigan in the distance makes for a stunning sunset view from the second story's living room or front deck. Excellent outdoor cooking facilities, a fire ring and a horse shoe pit make up some of the outdoor amenities. And for days when the weather isn't cooperative, there's a comfy TV room with a large flat screen TV and DVD player and a variety of movies, as well as game rooms with a billiard table and a dart board, and a nice selection of family-friendly board games too.

The house is less than ten minutes away from Lake Michigan and Crystal Lake beaches, downtown Frankfort, the Betsie Trail System, the Frankfort public marina, and Betsie River put-ins for kayaking, fishing, and canoeing. Within 20 minutes of many of the area's prime golf courses, including award winning Arcadia Bluffs and Crystal Mountain.

This is my home and not a "rental unit" so you'll have fluffy towels, real flatware, good cookware, and nice dishes for your stay. You may have deer and wild turkeys wander through the yard, but they are good visitors and just pass peacefully through. The house has satellite TV, but you will need to bring your cell phone with a data plan for Internet access and phone service.

I do ask for at least least two personal references that are not relatives or members of the rental party prior to accepting a deposit and confirming the reservation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

Why the Owner Chose Frankfort, MI, USA:
Simply put, I love my house and the property it sits on. Beautiful view of Betsie Valley with gorgeous sunsets! Far enough away for peace and quiet, yet close enough to be convenient to town and all the activities of Lake Michigan and nearby Frankfort. The house is spacious, yet warm and inviting. It is quiet and we can see Lake Michigan in the distance. Even the nights are pretty, with a sky full of stars overhead and the even the Northern Lights on occasion. If you are into cycling road or mountain this place is spectacular. Miles and miles of smooth challenging country roads will keep even the top Cat 1 riders amazed. You'll look at the woods and wonder where the mountains are? Northern Michigan hosted the first world cup race ever held in North America. Our trails feature power climbs that at the end of the day will provide plenty of elevation change and lots of high speed tight single track.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What makes this home unique is it is a complete separate home on the both first and second floors. Each level has its own kitchen, laundry, bedrooms and baths, which makes it perfect for two families that want to vacation together yet maintain some of their space.
