Honor House Rental Photos and Description
3 Bdrm 2 Bath, On 1.36 Acres, Private Access To Platte Lake. Near Sleeping Bear
Bird Song Acres is a large property across a (very quiet) street from Platte Lake. This provides all the benefits of lake access, without the concerns of little ones running into the water. You can also launch your motor boats just down the street (Platte has great fishing!)
When back on dry land, guests can relax in the screen porch, at the fire pit, next to the stream, or in the comfortable sitting areas of the cottage.
With no TV or internet at the cottage, it provides the perfect escape from your busy lives back home, and helps your kids learn how to really relax up north. Play board games, read, and make smores around the fire.

About Nick Willis
Sierra and I (Nick), have traveled the world for the past 7 years, as part of my job as a professional track athlete. We now have a baby boy, and wanted to provide him with a place to create lifelong memories with the extended family. From our extensive travels, we know what it takes to provide guests with the necessities for a perfect vacation. We hope you can enjoy our retreat in northern Michigan as much as we do.
Nick Willis purchased this house in 2013
Why Nick Willis chose Honor
We chose this property because of its perfect location between the isolated shores of Lake Michigan on Platte bay, and the quaint town of Beulah - the perfect place to pick up ice-cream, get supplies, or sit down for a meal when we don't feel like cooking.
I spent many summers running the trails at Platte River with the Uof M cross country team, and just fell in love with the area.
Platte Lake, is very quiet for a Northern Michigan Lake. Even on public holidays there are only a few ski boats out on the water.
With the Sleeping Bear dunes so close, it is the perfect little trip to go see the world class views from Pyramid point, or build up a sweat on the dune climb
