Bill and Suzie Anderson moved to Platte Lake in 2005. Bill is a managment consultant and retired college administrator. Suzie is a retired RN and master gardner and operates a garden design and maintenance business.

Suzie purchased this apartment in 2000

We have vacationed in this area our entire lives. This property has been in Suzie's family since the late 1920's while Bill's family has owned property since 1905 located just 15 minutes away on beautiful Lower Hering Lake. For many years our dream was to retire to this area. Our lakehouse home is a makeover of the original cottage and has been included on the annual Charity Tour of Interesting Places.

Platte Lake is a very quiet low traffic all sports lake with a beautiful wildlife preserve located at the east end where we live. We can leave our home in kayaks and in 10 minutes be enjoying the solitude and beauty of the Platte River while others are enjoying water sports on the lake. Three golf courses are located within a ten minute drive and Traverse City is just 25 miles away. It's no wonder that many prefer to call this 'God's Country'.

Beautiful Guest House

This place is beautiful, charming, clean and has the comforts of home. The lake has a sandy bottom which is perfect for swimming. The owners provide so many extras such a a notebook full of everything you need to know about the area (places to explore, towns to visit, lighthouses, excellent restaurants, etc.), I highly recommend this property!

This is a little slice of heaven here on earth. A lakeside cottage. Clean, modern with everything you can think you would need. Very quiet with many opportunities to commune with nature. Eagles, beavers, wild turkeys, deer were spotted throughout the week.Stunning gardens that brought new joy each day. We used the kayaks every morning exploring new places around the lake or up the river. Warm clear water, with sand bottom to swim. There is a book filled with all there is to do in the area, and not enough time to do it. You can be very active or just chill. The owners are very helpful and friendly and live on site. We will definately go back. Soon I hope.

Great guest house

The owners are so nice and welcoming. We felt comfortable and at home here. Comfortable beds and beautiful location. We were in town for a wedding so we didn't have a chance to swim or use the kayaks. The lake is beautiful and we would love to return some day. The guest house is beautiful and clean inside, great place to stay!

We really enjoyed the stay. The house was very comfortable and in a great location as it is equidistant from many of the things to see in Benzie County. The house is clean, modern, and nicely decorated. Thanks again for having us. We will keep theis on our list of great places to stay when we are in the area again.
