Great small motel in Frankfort. Clean nicely decorated rooms. Nice grounds including special touch of hammocks under the shade trees. Owner Luann was a gem. She was genuinely positive helpful and interested in my stay. Frankfort is a just right sized town close to The national lakeshore with nice lighthouse and brewpub walking distance to motel. Thanks Luann.

We just got home a few days ago from our first stay here. It was just what we wanted - a clean, quiet, comfortable place in a great location. We obviously knew we weren't staying in a hilton resort so as long as you aren't expecting that - it's perfect. We went back and forth between frankfort, traverse city, and... More

Very quaint, comfortable, clean. Rooms are all decorated a bit different, from french country to nautical. Great location. Close to downtown, fishing and bike path. With Bay Port Lodge being a hidden gem, the owner, LuAnn is a jewel. We would stay no other place in Frankfort, Mi.

Our stay at Bay Port was remarkable. The lodge is adorable and welcoming, as well as perfectly located and affordable. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. As if that wasn't enough, the owner and staff were top notch. We truly felt like we were surrounded by amazing friends. We certainly plan to stay here again and we will... More

Very homey, Clean, and peaceful. We walked to Lake Mi and around town to the shops. This is a great place to stay to do the North east shoreline. I loved the pillows and slept well! LuAnn was very helpful and supplied a lot of area information and literature.

My husband and I just got back from our second visit here, same weekend last year. Last year was for our mini honeymoon and this year for our anniversary. Both times we were surprised with a bottle of wine by the owner, a nice gesture knowing that we are celebrating a romantic weekend. This year we came up with a... More

Sometimes spur of the moment mini vacations can turn out to be awesome, and sometimes not. We decided to head to Frankfurt for the Labor Day (2013) holiday weekend last minute. So calling around we found that this was the only place that had any vacancy. That was the 1st flag that we missed. We were greeted by the owner... More

Unfortunately this review is the result of a motel guest who did not want to be responsible/accountable for his same day, late afternoon 3 night cancellation for the house next door. After his verbal abuse and texts of profanity and threats failed to get him his desired outcome, he attempted to dispute the 1 night charge with his credit card... More

The location is excellent for walking around downtown Frankfort. The room was very clean and comfortable. We stayed on the street front with 2 retro metal chairs out front to relax in at the days end. There is a beautiful garden and 2 hammocks out front. We would definitely stay here again.
