About Robert Johnson
My wife and I always dreamed of spending cold winter days in a cosi cabin surrounded by friends and family in front of a crackling fire. Our dream finally came true this year. We are so excited to be spending quality time skiing, snow shoeing, on a fat tire bike ride or maybe in the fall hiking and enjoying the area trails and rivers. In the summer finding some treasures at one of the many antique markets in the area. We can't wait to experience all that and more with our 5 year old son and our family from out of town. This UNIQUE log cabin has so much to offer and we are just starting to write endless chapters and making wonderful memories!
Robert Johnson purchased this Cabin in 2016

Terrific family house
This house was ideal for our extended family vacation. Very comfortable for gathering together, and well stocked with everything we needed.
Another nice stay through HomeAway
This is the third year we stayed at this property. It is a wonderful place for our five couples (two parents and their four children with their spouses) to gather for fellowship. Great sleeping arrangements and plenty of space to visit inside and outside. The table is perfect for our family gathering of ten adults. Close to Franfort, Alberta, Beulah, and Benzonia along with close access to Lake Michigan and Crystal Lake. Short drive to Sleeping Bear Dunes.
This was a very nice cabin with ultimate privacy. It was a very warm week and there is no aircondtioning in the cabin but many ceiling fans and a couple box fans. Because of the cabin being closed during the day when we were away, the cabin was very warm when we returned. Let me say that I was fully aware of this beforehand but want future renters to know this. I would rent this property again if there was a large group on vacation. I am sure this cabin is very busy during ski season. Everything was fine, the beds were comfortable and plenty of towels and cloths for showers. The mosquitoes were almost non exsistant which surprised me. Very nice cabin and communication.
Thank you for your kind words. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and maybe can welcome you again in the future.
Room for us all. Beautiful location. Near everything we needed. Fun towns to visit nearby. Great week!!!
Great house in fabulous location!
This was our 3rd summer vacation in the Crystal Lake area and our 1st stay in this house. We love this area for hiking, paddle boarding and proximity to restaurants and shopping.
We liked this house so much that we already made reservations to return next year!
There were 4 of us, joined by 3 others for part of the trip, all adults. So we really liked having 4 real bedrooms (in addition to the loft) with queen sized beds and 3 beautiful large bathrooms. We loved the large kitchen, which had everything we needed. We also loved the large porch, which is in the shade and perfect for reading and relaxing. And we really enjoyed the huge fire pit!
There is no AC, which we didn't notice when we picked the place originally. For folks who have allergies or just come from cities where they would feel uncomfortable leaving a window or screen door open at night, that might be a deal breaker.
If I could change one thing, it would be to replace the mattresses. The master bed was very squeaky and I had to move in the middle of the night to another room. It would be a wonderful addition to have a picnic table on the porch. Also, there was no functional DVD player and we had brought some movies to watch so we ordered one on Amazon and had it delivered. I guess folks use digital subscriptions now so that's probably not an issue for most.
The owner was really great about granting us access to the house when we arrived early, and very responsive about a door that didn't lock properly.
Log cabin on the Hill just outside of Frankfort was a great location for our family. Short drive to Lake Michigan or the dunes and 12 minutes from Crystal Mountain resort with golf and outdoor water activities geared toward younger children which our grandchildren enjoyed. Cabin was spacious allowing each of our four families to have their own space. We were fortunate to have temperatures average in upper 70's in late June making the cabin comfortable despite no air conditioning but ceiling fans were sufficient.. Only negative during the stay was the gas grill needing a good cleaning as the grease buildup caused a grease fire. Would consider using this location again.
The Log Cabin on the hill is conveniently located just 5 minutes from downtown Frankfort and 5 minutes to one of the many public beaches on Crystal Lake, only 15 minutes to Crystal Mountain skiing or golfing on all plowed main roads, 30 minutes to either Manistee where you can visit the Casino or watch one of the many shows offered, 30-40 minutes from Traverse City and close by many attractions like Sleepy Bear Dunes etc. Rain or shine there is always something to do. Just step outside the door and enjoy a day of biking, rent one of the many fishing charter boats and spend the day on the water. Once back home you will feel wonderful cooking that freshly caught fish and enjoying it with your friends and family.
