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.
