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

During Sep. & Oct. my husband and I spent two long weekends and I spent one by myself. We were greeted by Iris who is friendly and knowledgeable about the area and willing to help with anything you need. Our cottage had a lovely window box full of flowers with nasturtiums (one of my favorites) trailing down. The cottage was... More

I've been coming to the Benzie County area since I was 10. Now, at age 22 I've finally found the perfect place to stay. On a beautiful, semi-wooded piece of property sits Wayfarer lodgings. Mike and Iris are the most friendly, authentic, and honestly down to earth innkeepers I've ever met. So spunky and ready to give recommendations. If you... More
