A nicely decorated home on the south shore many steps above the average rental cottage. 2850+ square feet of very comfortable lodging and beds taking away the aches and pains of playing all day in the water, golfing or fishing to your hearts desire. Available year around for all seasons enjoyment. Spend summer, beautiful fall color tours, Thanksgiving and Christmas in our beautiful home. Just 12 miles to the dune walk and beautiful Sleeping Bear National Park starts just a mile away. Enjoy the 100' of beach, the excellent fishing or do many of the other multitude of activities including visits to the Point Betsie Light House, hiking trails, swimming, fishing, golfing, autumn colors, fine dining, museums, skiing and so much more!
In the fall our home is located in some of the most picturesque country in northern Michigan. The area is noted for the beautiful drives along the coast line or through the beautiful country. A very rural inner area with many gorgeous views.
In the winter we have many nearby trails for cross country skiing. The Park offers both the rental of skis and snowshoes and many trails to use them on. Ice fishing shanties abound on Platte lake with anglers going for perch, bass, northern pike and an occasional rainbow trout. Ice fishing at its best. Crystal Mountain is very busy this time of year and renters enjoy the solitude and quietness of our home after a long day of rushing downhill at Crystal. No hurry to find a dinner table or make a reservation. Just come home to a nice quiet setting.
Husband and wife are both dentists with a practice in Frankfort. Both are outside enthusiasts enjoying the beautiful country lifestyle and excellent fishing.

Our home/cottage is private surrounded by trees on a dead end road. Treed lots on both sides of us provide much privacy on our deck or on the beach. If you like to spend some relaxing time in a hot tub with beautiful views of a lake, rent our home. We can watch our children from our deck just a short distance form the lake which is a nice convenience and safety factor.
Privacy, privacy, and privacy!!!!! Quiet nights undisturbed by close neighbors and close to many activities.
We had a relaxing stay on Platte Lake. We have a large family with many small children and it is very hard to find a home big enough for everyone. This house was perfect... everyone had a comfortable real bed! There are plenty of bedrooms and lots of bathrooms! The outside space was private. The beach area was perfect for the kids to play. The dock creates a safe area for the kids to swim where the water isn't too deep and blocks them from going into water over their heads. The kitchen is large and has a lot of seating for everyone. The deck off the back of the house is large and provides a great place to relax and watch the lake. We hope to return next summer!
