Its a 4 min. walk to the sparkling waters, marina, playground and beautiful waterview library on Betsie Bay. From there its 4 min. to ice cream, fudge, pizza, bakery, cinema, shops, restaurants and open air music in lovely Frankfort. Another 4 min and you're on the sugar sand beach, swimming, playing volleyball or walking the iconic pier of Lake Michigan. The wine country of Leelanau Peninsula, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City and Crystal Lake are easy day trips. The Betsie Bay Trail, a 22-mile bike and hike trail from Crystal Lake to Thompsonville runs right through town. There are queen beds in both the main level and upstairs bedrooms, with a twin bed in the second upstairs bedroom. Main level bedroom has vintage built-in clothes cupboards. Upstairs queen bedroom has wardrobe unit only. Upstairs twin room has walk-in closet. Many happy days have been spent in this comfortable home, just relaxing in the sun or after a full day of swimming, dune buggies or street fair browsing. Very affordable when shared between two families and cooking some of your own meals. Kids love walking to town, making this a perfect family vacation spot. More

Easy walk to shopping, the bay and the beach and also the break wall! Accommodations were clean and comfortable, nice flatscreen in the front room. Beds were very comfortable and kitchen was fully equipped. It was awkward to have to go through the single bed...More

About the neighbourhood
Frankfort is a classic summer small town nestled between Betsie Bay and Lake Michigan, with gorgeous Crystal Lake a 5 min drive away. It gets busy in the height of summer, so being close enough to walk to town, the beach and sunsets is convenient. Daytrips in the area include Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City Cherry and Film Festivals, Crystal Lake, Leelanau Peninsula wine country, Glen Arbor resorts and the fun shopping and dining of re-purposed fishing shacks, and waterfalls, of 'Fishtown' in Leland.
Getting around
The town is walkable. Betsie Bay and its marina is a two block, 4 min. walk to the south, as is the beautiful Library with great water view, magazine rack, comfortable chairs and free internet access. Restaurants, ice cream, the cinema, bars and a bookstore are a further 4 min. walk, and gorgeous Lake Michigan beach is a further 4 min stroll. You can walk down the classic leafy Forest Ave. and pass brightly painted Victorian homes on your way to Lake Michigan. The grocery store is 1.5 blocks to the east. A soft serve ice cream stand is in front of the store.
