We have driven by this property several times. We thought it looked cute, and we liked the location. We are big fans of Elberta Beach and this place is very close. We made reservations several months prior and had been looking forward to our stay. The owner sent us a text to let us know our cabin was ready for us. We thought that was a very nice touch. Check in was very pleasant. We enjoyed talking with the owner and she gave us many suggestions on places to go and things to do. We stayed in cabin 6. It was an adorable little cabin with a refridgerator, stove, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, dishes, etc. There were serveral grills available to use. The bathroom was tiny but the shower was HOT! The bed was a little firm for our liking but we didn't have any problems falling asleep. The cabin didn't have air conditioning but we were able to use the ceiling fan and lake breezes to keep our cabin comfy.There was a short trail leading to the beach. It made it handy to go for a walk on the beach without having to drive a few miles. We enjoyed our stay here. I am sure we will be back again.

A short walk through the meadow and down the stairs brings you to the most beautiful, deserted Lake Michigan beach imaginable. In our fast-paced and ever-changing world, the Wayfarer remains a peaceful spot that has been a favorite for families, couples, and anglers for decades. Our location, 2 miles south of Frankfort, makes us the perfect place to stay and play as well as venture out for the day. ... more less
