“Very comfortable house rental next door.”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

I was in town with a friend for almost a week and this house was very comfortable. The house is very well maintained and whoever does the housecleaning is doing an excellent job. There were plenty of towels, a washer and dryer, shampoo, dish soap, etc. Perhaps the most important for me were the VERY COMFORTABLE BEDS. I would most definitely rent this house again and would not hesitate to rent a room at the motel either as the same people are taking care of both. Very nice job. By the way, the TV in the picture is out of date. There is a new flat screen which is very nice.

Room Tip: The house was very nice.

We stayed at this motel for one night. It was not luxurious. but cute and very clean. The rates were good and the owner was very nice. We used the hammocks outside of our room in the evening and walked to a great restaurant for breakfast in the morning. Nice place to stop for the night!

If you are a fan of chain hotels with breakfast included, swipe keys, indoor hallways, etc., this is not your place. But if you like the kinder gentler pace of the Mom & Pop motel experience, Bay Port Lodging would be hard to beat. Very reasonable rates, even in "high" season for a lake shore town. The owners have worked around the age of the facility to provide lodging with modern comforts. Rooms are individually and tastefully decorated in "lake eclectic." Rooms include cable TV, a microwave, coffee maker and mini fridge. There is a "cabin" room that has a complete kitchen for longer stays. Bathroom are sparkling clean, with water pic shower heads. Due to older plumbing, the owners leave specific "flush" instructions for the toilets--just adds to the quaint feeling. Each room has area maps and information useful to tourists, and also a collection of books--from classics to self-help--to read during your stay. Parking is in the back and along the side of the motel. The motel is not on the main business drag of Frankfort, but it an easy couple of blocks walk to restaurants and shopping. The beach is a longer walk, and if you have chairs, coolers, etc., you might want to drive. Ample parking at the beach, and it's a great beach (with restrooms and changing area). Breakfast is not included, and it's worth noting that check-out is 10 a.m. Earlier than most, but for the rate you pay a small inconvenience. Each room has its own key (not a scan card!) to the deadbolt lock. Comfortable and casual experience, you can leave your keys in the office basket when it's time to go. The owners work with you for late check-ins. All in all, a homey, clean, great little place in a cute town and gorgeous area of the state.
