About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Our vacation home is in a quiet location only a short walking distance to Betsie Bay and the beautiful Lake Michigan beach. Main Street with cute shops and restaurants, the Betsie Valley Bike Trail and the marina are right around the corner. The home is newly renovated and we did recover the natural wood floors and added a new wood floor in the living area. There is a large master bedroom with a queen size bed and a private bed room with two twin size beds. Next to this room and the kitchen is a open room with a futon. The lower level has a private room with a full size bed.

About Wilfried Schley

It was always our dream to live on the shores of Lake Michigan after we spent the last 10 years sailing on a lake in Wisconsin. Frankfort offers everything we like, i.e.farmers 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 Frankfort, Germany, I always wanted to visit Frankfort, Michigan.

Why Wilfried Schley chose Northern Michigan

For the last twenty years we have spent our summer vacations on Lake Michigan. In 2011 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 can imagine spending the rest of our lives in this area.

What makes this house 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 restaurant or take a bike ride along the beautiful Betsie Valley Bike Trail. The large fenced=in year will be the perfect playground for our future grandchildren. We also enjoy hiking along Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and canoeing on the Platte River, both only 15 minutes away.

Highly recommend this lovely little resort!

Wonderful! Wil and Beth were perfect hosts, warm and responsive. The Bay House was spotless, adorable, comfortable, and very well-equipped. Location was perfect--walking distance to marina, beach, restaurants, AND coffee & doughnuts every morning! Family renting elsewhere visited and LOVED our cottage's ambience and location too. Ample parking, plus lovely flowers and outdoor seating and picnic tables. We definitely recommend Harbor Place cottages to couples and families looking for a great little home-away-from-home in Frankfort.
