Reviewed 28 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Property was in a great location. Close to many attractions in the area. Frankfort is a great town to visit and shop. Lake Michigan and Crystal Lake boat launch are just minutes away. The property was clean and has 3 bedrooms that were very comfortable. The Platte River is right out your back door. We had a campfire every night...

Our stay was excellent! Host was very gracious and let us check in early and even offered to let us check out later on our departure day. The home is on a great little river with the perfect backyard space for a campfire or just an early morning coffee on the large deck. House was spacious and had all the...

Very nice, clean, comfortable cottage. Great location. Very relaxing back yard. Friendly community. Good restaurants in town. Expected "tourist season" prices, not disappointed.

About the neighbourhood
While Michiganders are still a long way from soaking up the summer sun, our friends at National Geographic have reminded us what lies ahead.

Last year, the magazine released its list of the 21 best beaches in the world, including one attraction from right here in our backyard -- Sleeping Bear Dunes.

'Pure freshwater and 450-foot bluffs mean eyes-open swimming and vast views over Lake Michigan,' reads the location summary.

'Walk from the former Sleeping Bear Point Coast Guard Station, now a maritime museum, or along the Sleeping Bear Point Trail over low-lying dunes to the beach. In the distance look for North and South Manitou Islands, prime spots for hiking and camping.'

The Dunes are a made up of a 64-mile curve of beaches, coves!
