  • Wonderful Weekend


    My daughter and I spent a wonderful weekend at this lovely home within walking distance to the beach and only a couple blocks from downtown. We explored the area, enjoyed the front porch in the evening and did a lot of walking. One improvement to make it even better would be to add a couple reading lamps to the living room.

  • Great little house


    Great little house. Very convenient to walk up town and enjoy the restaurants and beach. Farmers market also was a hit. Thanks for a great stay.

  • Good stay


    Overall this was a good place to stay. Check-in was easy, the neighborhood the home is in felt safe, and it was conveniently close to the downtown area. The amenities were pretty good. Though, it would be helpful if there were things like salt, pepper, plastic wrap, and tin foil. Also, the Keurig wouldn't turn on, even after pressing the reset button. But, there are places in town you can get coffee (and good things to go with it) like Crescent Bakery or L'Chayim Delicatessen.

    The local host contact forwarded my email to the homeowner, and thankfully the homeowner was responsive and he forwarded my email to Evolve (the company managing the home), but Evolve didn't respond to me.

    However, the home is beautiful and the stay was peaceful and thoroughly enjoyable.

  • Beautiful, well kept home in the downtown area.


    Charming home located within walking distance to the town’s restaurants, shops, sandy sunset lit beaches, lighthouse and river. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home was perfect for our 3 night stay in downtown Frankfort. It had all the amenities we could have hoped for. Washer and dryer along with supplies for washing clothes and cleaning supplies. Coffee pods and snacks for our use, kitchen dishes and supplies for your eating or snacking. Two comfortable seating areas for watching tv, reading books or relaxing quietly. There is a large deck and chairs that are wonderful to sit and watch the many butterflies and hummingbirds visiting the flowers planted below. There is a lovely front porch with furniture if you prefer sitting in the shade and enjoying quiet and beautiful vintage homes of the neighborhood.

    We especially enjoyed leaving our car in the driveway and walking the neighborhood and heading to the beach, shopping Or restaurants.

    We also appreciated the ease to travel to other towns for exploring. We loved visiting the sand dunes, Fishtown, Traverse City wine country, Sutton’s Bay and more.
