Frankfort, Benzie County, Michigan
The Agape Restoration Cottage is a lovely small older home that we are remodeling in Frankfort, Michigan, a beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing beach town located on Lake Michigan where the Betsie River empties into Lake Michigan. We just launched this as a vacation rental property in December, 2015 and are currently offering exceptionally inexpensive / cheap introductory rates on this property. We believe that it works particularly well for an inexpensive and economical romantic getaway to northern Michigan. At present, the first floor is open for vacation rentals, with the second floor and the basement closed off for additional renovation work.

Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We booked this rental for 4 nights in mid September 2016. It seemed like a good fit as we needed a place to store our bikes . We understood that the discounted rate reflected the fact that the rental was still undergoing renovations, however we were not prepared for the overall poor condition of the property. The exterior was appalling (high weeds in front, fence & front steps in need of repair, rear yard was just dirt & uneven stepping stones, peeling paint on deck & ripped patio chairs, not at all inviting). Inside, the windows were not functional – either stuck closed or stuck open (window in living room actually had broken glass), bathroom light dimmed when I used my hairdryer, hot/cold faucets in bathroom reversed, dining room fan wobbled to the point that we left it off. Both inside & out this property needs better maintenance and a thorough cleaning.
On a positive note, this rental is in a GREAT location, good WIFI, ample storage. With a little TLC this...

Management response:

Thanks for the review, Roberta! As discussed in the listing, this property is a work-in-progress and we appreciate your input as we continue to develop it further. Wish you all the best! - Eric :-)

About the neighbourhood
The house is in the small 'downtown' residential area. There are only approx. 400 year-round residents in Frankfort though and the neighborhood is approx. a 50 / 50 mix of year-round residents and vacation homes. It is very quiet outside of the summer period. During the summer, it is much busier and there is some road noise given the proximity of the cottage to M-22.
