Reminds me of an old motor lodge. The owner that checked us in was an engaging character! Funny. Quaint cabins with all the amenities. WIFI worked well. Nice flat screen TV. Beds were very comfortable. You could hear some of the road noise at night, so that was the only issue we really had. Would definitely stay there again!

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
