“June 2014 overnight stay. ”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

Great small motel in Frankfort. Clean nicely decorated rooms. Nice grounds including special touch of hammocks under the shade trees. Owner Luann was a gem. She was genuinely positive helpful and interested in my stay. Frankfort is a just right sized town close to The national lakeshore with nice lighthouse and brewpub walking distance to motel. Thanks Luann.

We just got home a few days ago from our first stay here. It was just what we wanted - a clean, quiet, comfortable place in a great location. We obviously knew we weren't staying in a hilton resort so as long as you aren't expecting that - it's perfect. We went back and forth between frankfort, traverse city, and glen arbor multiple times and it was very convent to all 3. LuAnn was very sweet and gave us a bunch of information on the area and we had no issues with our stay. We tend to make a huge mess of our rooms with our clothes and belongings thrown everywhere but they still came in and cleaned up around our mess and left fresh towels each afternoon. We will definitely be returning in the fall to see all the leaves change.

My first stay here 1.5 years ago was during the off season and they were really accommodating and hospitable, and yesterday i returned, it was my wife and my anniversary and we were openly welcomed as friends and even greeted with a card and a bottle of wine with cups. the water was hot and the stay was picture perfect. a very nice quiet atmosphere with helpful staff and a very pleasant cottage to stay in. will stay here every time i am in Frankfort.

Room Tip: cottages are incredible

Very quaint, comfortable, clean. Rooms are all decorated a bit different, from french country to nautical. Great location. Close to downtown, fishing and bike path. With Bay Port Lodge being a hidden gem, the owner, LuAnn is a jewel. We would stay no other place in Frankfort, Mi.

Room Tip: If you prefer shade, request a room up front. Those have a covered porch.

Our stay at Bay Port was remarkable. The lodge is adorable and welcoming, as well as perfectly located and affordable. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. As if that wasn't enough, the owner and staff were top notch. We truly felt like we were surrounded by amazing friends. We certainly plan to stay here again and we will encourage everone we know to do the same. You will be impressed!

Very homey, Clean, and peaceful. We walked to Lake Mi and around town to the shops. This is a great place to stay to do the North east shoreline. I loved the pillows and slept well! LuAnn was very helpful and supplied a lot of area information and literature.
