Leelanau Peninsula, MI lodgings for a couple with a toddler

I usually hang around the European forum but a recent addition to our family has kept us stateside. We have lived in Michigan for almost 10 years but have never made it up to the Leelanau Peninsula. We are looking to take a long weekend there (3-4 nights) later in the summer or early fall and are looking for recommendations for family-friendly small hotels or B&Bs. We don't want a chain hotel; we'd prefer something with a little more charm but it must be very clean. Budget is flexible but preferably <$200/night. Our daughter will be 2 and loves the outdoors, so something on the water with a nice view, where she could play on the beach, would be great.

Suggestions on the best town to use as a base for exploring the peninsula (probably including a day trip down to Sleeping Bear Dunes) would also be helpful.

Thanks!

We spent a week exploring Leelanau Peninsula last summer and although we had a cottage in Interlochen on Green Lake, for what you are looking for, Frankfort would be a good option. The public beach is right there and the town is very kid friendly. The beach is very wide, and if I recall correctly, there was a playground on the beach.
