Perfect place to stage a Lake Michigan getaway

We were in Michigan for a week, visiting family and friends and getting some great beach time. This house in downtown Frankfort was a great place to relax, just a few minutes walk from a relaxing beach on Lake Michigan. It was a perfect place to land for my Michigan adventure, and I'll be back!
