Nothing modern about this place really. Tiny vintage cabins built in 1921 and nice green lawns. A short drive to sand dunes and downtown Frankfort. Super friendly owners that felt like friends. Chickens sometimes wander past your door and Lake Michigan is a short walk down the trail. Loved it for a romantic getaway.

I absolutely loved my cabin, it was very open and airy with the windows open to let the northern lake breeze into my cabin. I especially loved the afternoon nap I took from 1-3 where it was amazingly quiet with the sound of the trees blowing in the wind and field crickets chirping away. I don't think I've slept that...

Last minute booking, Iris was wonderful even told us a more scenic route to her lodgings, A very small cabin, but the three of us, me, wife and 17 year old, were comfortable. Everything worked, plenty of hot water, quiet, if not silent, place. Very restful and a lucky find! Thank you Iris!

If you are looking for cushy rooms with many amenities this isn't for you. But, if you want a friendly, clean, old fashioned comfortable place to relax, this might be the place. The rooms are small, but satisfactory for short stays. The owners are lovely people & make one feel friends you have known for years. A short walk to... More

What a great place to go to step into calm and quiet! The perfect get-away with the perfect hosts. Mike and Iris couldn't be more welcoming and the setting is perfectly tranquil. Cabins are adorable and clean. I WILL return!

Super comfortable bed. Hot Shower. Comfortable seating. Table and chairs. Full size fridge, microwave, stove, coffee maker, etc. This cabin is perfect for couples. We have saved money by cooking breakfast and dinner. You can't beat the cabin's proximity to Frankfort, Lake Michigan beaches, Betsie Valley Bike Trail, Betsie River, Platte River, and Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, etc. We like... More

Super little place!! We stayed at the Wayfarer Lodgings so the we would be in the general area a Sleeping Bear Dunes. This is great old "cabin style" place reminiscent of the early days of motor travel (not that I was around then!) This is within walking distance of Lake Michigan, probably a half mile. The small cabins are quaint,... More

These cute, tidy and super clean cottages are offered for rent by Mike and Iris Jones....two of the nicest people you will ever meet. Make your reservations early, though, as they fill up fast. Great rates, perfect location and nice innkeepers. Who could ask for more. Tell 'em Tommy sent you!

Found them on the Internet, once we decided we wanted to travel to the Frankfort, Michigan, area, for a quick weekend get-away. We wanted something other than a traditional hotel/motel, and my husband is not a fan of B&B's. The Wayfarer turned out to be perfect! We had our own accommodations, including the great, fully equipped, kitchenette, which allowed us... More
