Windchime Inn, a century-old Victorian home, with modern comforts and amenities including air conditioning! Once a boarding house for car ferry and lumber workers, this home has a rich history and lots of charm.

Original maple woodwork and flooring combine with antique furnishings to create a warm and nostalgic atmosphere...kind of like visiting your grandparents' home...

Located on quiet, tree-lined Forest Avenue, in the port city of Frankfort, Michigan. Walking distance to all that Frankfort has to offer! See more below!
