First class trout stream within 20 ft of the back door, fly fishing is excellent. 5 Kayaks / 1 Canoe and 8 Inner Tubes to float the river, short float to downstream swimming hole (kids love it). Very close to Lake Michigan beaches inside Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Crystal Lake boat ramp 10 minutes away. Crystal Mountain Resort is a short drive south of the property.
Here is a Google map of the area I put together, and update from time to time, it shows beach locations, boat ramps, restaurants and other points of interest along with basic driving directions from lower Michigan.
First of all, the area surrounding this property (within a 30 min drive) is amazing. Easy access to some of the best beaches in the world, vineyards for wine tasting, great local shopping, and of course, Sleeping Bear Dunes which you have to see in person to appreciate how awesome it is. The kids had so much fun climbing the dunes, fishing in the Platt River (which is right in the back yard) and playing at the local beaches. They all wanted to stay another week!
Additionally, the property and the local community itself offer many options for activities. The Platt River is great for fishing and it runs through the back yard of the property. There are many kayaks and tubes onsite that can also be used in the river. The Big Platt and Little Platt lakes also offer fishing and kayaking opportunities. The town of Honor is small and quaint, so you don't feel like you're a tourist, but large enough to offer the essential amenities like groceries and a hardware store.
Last but not least, the property itself is very clean, modern, and offers everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Everything is very well organized and easy to find. The property is at the end of a secluded driveway, so there's lots of room between you and the neighbor.
I think we'll be making future trips to this area and will be looking forward to staying at Plattitudes again!
The house is really fabulous. We had eight people in our party and there was plenty of room. The kitchen has everthing you need, and the dining area seated all of us. The place is clean, bright and comfortable. The best part is the back porch overlooking the river. My parents said they would have been happy just sitting on the porch watching the river our whole stay.
We did not use the tvs much, but there is one in the living room, one in the large loft room and one downstairs. One of them doesn't have dvd capabilities, but that was not an issue for us. We did have access to the internet on our computer with no problem.
The location was ideal. The house is set in the woods and feels very private, but it is located in Honor. We ate out twice in two different places in the town of Honor and both were great. We also frequented an ice cream shop which was minutes away. The drive to Sleeping Bear Dunes park is short - maybe 20 or so minutes, and the drive to Traverse City is also fairly short.
The landlord promptly responded to contact and booking the place couldn't have been easier. I would very much recommend this rental
Location was perfect, we love the sound of the river rushing by in the morning while drinking coffee and Nightfall we start up the bombfire with some cocktails. The house was spacious, plenty of rooms for all of us. Already planning this place as our annual family time. See you next year Plattitudes!!
We stayed at Plattitudes for four days this summer. It was a great choice for us! The home is clean and up-to-date with all the supplies one would ever need while away from home. Its location is fantastic ... right on the river and close to attractions such as Sleeping Bear Dunes and Lake Michigan. We tubed down the river to the swimming hole a couple of different nights. It was great that tubes were already supplied! They also had a great selection of games. We even found a new we loved so much we bought our own once we got home! Communication with the homeowner is top notch. Erik always answered e-mails promptly and was very helpful in recommending restaurants and "don't miss" attractions. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! I don't have anything negative to say about our stay or the house!
We, unfortunately, were only able to stay 2 nights. We are already trying to plan another visit. The house was perfectly located. Very close to Sleeping Bear Dunes and right on the river. The kids and I tubed/kayaked to the swimming hole. It was fun!! Even grandma got on the tube for a short float! The house was very roomy and had everything we needed plus more!
My family stayed at this property for one week and we had such a wonderful time. We really enjoyed the location, and the home owner provided everything we needed to enjoy the river. It is very clean and well kept. And with 19 family members, not one ever slept on the floor. He has this house set up just perfect for a large group. It is private, yet just a short drive to lake MI and Crystal lake. We enjoyed the many selection of movie on the one rainy day we had. The large deck was wonderful in the morning to drink our coffee. The river in the back yard is very nice, clean, and even the small children could have fun as it is not deep. Erik was very helpful with info about shopping, and lakes near by. If your looking for a spot to rent that is clean, and fun, I highly recommend this property.
On the Platte River with exceptional access to 250' of frontage, listen to the water flow by from the living room. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is just minutes away, with excellent beaches and hiking opportunities. Crystal Mountain Resort down the road a short drive.
