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

Loved this place so much that my family and extended family are coming back again next July. Can't wait!! We loved the area and our side trips to familiar haunts in Empire and Glen Arbor. The beach, the fireworks, the parade on the 4th are memories we love!

for a touch of nostalgia, a reminder of how the world used to be, these simple but comfortable cottages from the '20s are a treat. small yes, but with knotty pine panelling and curtains with bass striking flies, a tidy little kitchen, classic metal lawn chairs and adirondack chairs, plenty of picnic tables and grills. iris was cheerful, welcoming, and...
