Holiday Rental House
The Agape Bayside Cottage is a very comfortable, cozy, bright, and family-friendly vacation rental cottage to stay at while enjoying a nice family vacation in northern Michigan. The house has been extensively remodeled within the last 10 years and it has a bright, beautiful, and modern design that features a considerable amount of lightly-colored woodwork and a large number of windows that provide exceptional natural lighting and a relaxing, beachy, lake-effect feel to the home. The cottage has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and is 1750 square feet in size. It can sleep up to 10 adults. The living room has a sofa (that opens up to provide a second bed), two large and comfortable chairs (great for relaxing after a day at Crystal Mountain), and a flat-screen television with cable.

The cottage has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and is 1750 square feet in size. It can sleep up to 10 adults. The living room has a sofa (that opens up to provide a second bed), two large and comfortable chairs (great for relaxing after a day at Crystal Mountain), and a flat-screen television with cable. The cottage also includes free high-speed WiFi. It has a beautiful, modern, and highly functional kitchen that includes a gas range (cooktop and oven), microwave, coffee pot, crockpot cooker, blender, toaster, numerous pots and pans, dishes, silverware, and cutlery. In the large backyard, there is a gas grill, bonfire pit with chairs, and, on the the large back deck, there is an outdoor dining table with outdoor chairs. The house is decorated with various artwork, some of which is explicitly Christian in nature. In terms of bedrooms and bathrooms, one of the 4 bedrooms is located on the first floor. It has a lovely queen-size bed in it and it has its own private bath. A thick curtain in the entryway to the bedroom can be closed for privacy to shut off the bedroom from the rest of the house. There are three bedrooms upstairs, including a kids room that has 2 very cute matching twin beds in it. The other two upstairs bedrooms each have a comfortable queen-size bed in them. There are 1.5 bathrooms downstairs (each downstairs bathroom has a shower) and a full bathroom upstairs that features a large and wonderful Jacuzzi tub. One of the downstairs bathrooms also includes a very nice washer and dryer. As shown in the photos, the vacation property is landscaped with beautiful dunegrass in front of the house, which adds to the relaxing 'lake effect' and beachy feel of the home. Parking for up to 3 cars is available in the driveway and parking is also available on the street. There is a small garage at the end of the driveway which is available to guests to use for storage of kayaks, canoes, bicycles, motorcycles, skis, snowboards, snowmobiles, or whatever else will fit in the garage. ​The house does not have air conditioning, but it does have numerous ceiling fans and pedestal fans. Given these fans, the weather in northern Michigan, and the cottage's proximity to ever-cool Lake Michigan, air conditioning really is generally not needed to keep the cottage cool and comfortable. Central natural gas heating is provided for keeping the house warm and cozy in the winter. In terms of wheelchair accessibility, the cottage unfortunately is not very wheelchair-accessible and we would not recommend it for individuals in wheelchairs. For individuals in wheelchairs or other special needs, we recommend our other cottage in Frankfort, the Agape Leelanau Cottage, which is quite wheelchair accessible. More

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is located at 719 Forest Avenue (M22) in beautiful and historic Frankfort, Michigan, which provides excellent fishing, shopping, dining, hiking, biking, and sunbathing / relaxing on the shore of Lake Michigan on beautiful Frankfort Beach, which is only 0.6 miles from the cottage. This rental house is easy to find and is located right on the legendary M22. It is only 1 block away from Main Street and downtown Frankfort. Relaxing on the beach and enjoying Lake Michigan and the beautiful sunsets on Lake Michigan is probably the most popular activity in town during the summer months.
Getting around
The cottage is a short walk from downtown Frankfort and Lake Michigan. This includes a number of shops, restaurants, and Frankfort Beach. For travel outside of Frankfort, a car is recommended.
