Hidden away on the south side of Big Platte Lake, nestled in a quiet cove, lies the Birch Cove Bungalow. Just a 10 minute drive to town, the Bungalow offers the perfect location for your vacation getaway. Take the kids to the Lake Michigan beach at Platte River Point for the day, or enjoy the privacy of your own 100 feet of sandy beach on the shores of Big Platte Lake. Don't forget to take in a double feature at the Cherry Bowl Drive In Theater, one of only a handful of drive-ins left in the state.
I was so thrilled upon arrival...the pictures don't do this beautiful place justice! Large, shaded yard, sandy beach, huge deck overlooking the lake, large sunroom where we spent most of our time...
More amenities were here than I expected! I would suggest, however, to add mixing bowls in an otherwise fully stocked kitchen. Rooms were comfortable and decent sized. Another suggestion would be to have small dressers or even shelves in the bedrooms. When staying for a week it's not ideal to live out of a suitcase.
No air conditioning, but we were comfortable with the lake breeze and the fans that were provided, even on some warm nights!
Quiet location, beautiful lake. We liked the fire pit and the picnic table on the deck, along with the provided beach chairs and Adirondack chairs as well.
Close to so many things...Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor, Platte River, Frankfort. Rented a paddle board from The Trading Post and loved their helpful service! Took a 30 minute trip into the outskirts of Traverse City to see a Beach Bums baseball game, too. We can't wait to return next year!
