We had a real nice weekend stay at Hotel Frankfort. Quaint rooms and a great looking lobby and bar area. We stayed in the Music Room. Bathroom was a little tight, but not a problem. Just a short walk to Stormcloud.

Thank you for your kind words. Yes, new tv's for every room (larger and attached to the walls) are our winter project. Additional electrical plugs are something we want but that this old building resists. We are working on this, however. :) Your compliments have been passed to the staff. Thank you for recognizing them. They work hard and take pride in their work so appreciate being recognized. We look forward to your next visit!
