Overview

About the property

Comfortable, 3-bedroom Farmhouse In The Woods, Near Lake Michigan & Crystal Lake

This red farmhouse sits on 9 wooded acres in a small valley half-way between Frankfort and the Congregational Summer Assembly, or CSA. It is about 1 ½ miles from the Frankfort Harbor Beach, the same distance from Crystal Lake, and a ¼ mile “crows flight” from Lake Michigan. It sleeps eight in the three bedrooms; two bedrooms have queen beds and one has two twin beds and a double bed.

++Please see at the bottom of the description for payment options ++

There is a wrap-around porch in front and a covered porch and open deck in the back. Both offer beautiful views. The front lawn is shaded by large maple trees nearly 150 years-old. The back view is dominated by a large willow, a meadow, and the maples, oaks and pines on the hill.

There is lots of room for a woodsy stroll or for throwing a ball around as well as plenty of seating for conversation, reading or just taking in the lake air. We love walking into Frankfort each evening along a small country road to watch the sunset with an ice cream. In the morning, the same trip brings hot, fresh-baked doughnuts and coffee.

This recently remodeled farmhouse was built in the 1870's by one of the first European families to settle in the Frankfort area. It retains the quirky but comfortable character of 150 years of custom building and remodeling. There are hardwood floors throughout the first floor and a painted pine floor upstairs. The kitchen island has bar-top seating and a smooth-top electric range. Enjoy meals in the dinning room or on the covered back porch. We have remodeled the bathroom over the winter.

Popular local activities include boating, fishing, swimming, bicycling, golfing and just hanging out. There are a range of nearby shops for fine or relaxed dining, craft beers, local music, local produce including fruits and smoked fish, local ice cream and fudge, gifts, art and crafts, and more. We are very close to Frankfort and Point Betsie Lighthouses and not too far from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
