About Wil

It was always our dream to live on the shores of Lake Michigan after we spend the last 10 years sailing on a lake in Wisconsin. Frankfort offers everything we like, i.e. farmer's markets, sustainable living, biking, paddling, and skiing (opportunities to be active outdoors all year around) as well as cultural events in and around town. Growing up close to Frankfurt, Germany, I always wanted to visit Frankfort, Michigan.

Wil purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Wil chose Frankfort

For the last twenty years we have spent our summer vacations on Lake Michigan. This year we visited Frankfort for the first time and fell in love with the city and area. We know that we have found the perfect location and we can imagine spending the rest of our lives in this area.

What makes this bungalow unique

Tucked away in a quiet location and still in the middle of it all. Forget the car and walk to the beach, harbor, stores, shops and restaurants or take a bike ride along the beautiful Betsie Valley Bike Trail. The large fenced-in your will be the perfect playground for our future grandchildren. We also enjoy hiking along Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore or canoeing on the Platte River, both only 15 minutes away.

Cute Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were happy to stay in this really cute cottage. It is decorated warmly and cheerfully. Bed is comfortable, heater works great! All that you would need is supplied. Nice to have a full size fridge and freezer. Nice to have TV available if needed (but there is so much to do in Frankfort area) I would just double check about linen availability. They supplied all for us this weekend, but said in summer for week long stays some people bring their own. Their are 3 homes on this property and all doors face a common yard. The walkable convenience to town is great. Met hosts briefly...very nice!

Sweet cottage close to town and harbor

  • 4 of 5

This cottage shares a double lot with two others. There are grills and picnic tables, a lawn to run around for a game of tag, and plenty of breezes from Windows on each side of it. It's cozy but well-appointed. Morning sun in the front room, and a cool shady bedroom.

Both the Beach House and the Bay House were lovely in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were extremely accommodating and the cottages we stayed in were clean and affordable. The location is ideal because you are only a couple blocks from Lake Betsie as well as Lake Michigan.

Car: recommended

Tugged away in a quiet location and still in the middle of all the action. Forget the car and walk to the beach, harbor, stores, shops and restaurants. Take a Sleeping Bear boat cruise or rent a bike and ride the Betsie Vally Trail bike path. Kayak and Canoe rentals on the Platte River are not far or you can ski or snowboard in the winter at Crystal Mountain Ski Resort, only 20 minutes for Frankfort. The new Frankfort City playground is two block from our vacation home and a perfect place for families with younger children.
