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.

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.

Why Richard or Jill Lutz chose Honor
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.
What makes this House unique
Privacy, privacy, and privacy!!!!! Quiet nights undisturbed by close neighbors and close to many activities.

An enjoyable property on Platte Lake
Our family really enjoyed our stay at this home on Platte Lake. The home is in a wooded area down a narrow gravel road among other homes that dot the shoreline. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The dining room, kitchen, family room and deck were large enough to comfortably accommodate 12 people. The kitchen is especially nice. The owners and property manager were accommodating and attentive.
The water in the lake at the dock was shallow and clear, perfect for swimming and fishing for our children. We had the use of a row boat and canoe which were on the property, and they made for some relaxing moments.
There is a lot to do in this area of Michigan near Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and we could have stayed longer. We were all impressed with the beauty of the sand dunes, beaches, lakes, rivers, hiking trails, lighthouses, museums, wineries and communities in the area.
Thank you Jeff for your thoughtful and descriptive response! We try every year to add something to make our guests stay a little more enjoyable. Cleanliness is especially important to us. Thanks and come back again!😀�👍�
Beautiful home and location!!
The home on big platte lake was lovely, very clean, plenty of room for everyone to congregate in the kitchen during meal times!! The location on the lake was perfect for boating and fishing. Would highly recommend the home!!
Great stay on Big Platte Lake for our large family. The house is big, comfortable, clean,
And private. We will be staying again next year.
Comfortable House For a Large Family
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!
On the doorstep of the National Sleeping Bear Park for autumn color tours, snow shoeing, canoe or tube the Platte River, and walk or ride the Parks many trails. fishing is great in the Platte Lake or take a charter out onto lake Michigan. The Platte has annual Coho and Steelhead runs as well as excellent bass, northern pike, walleye and perch fishing. Nearby Frankfort and Beulah offer shopping, many restaurants artists' shops. There are 13 golf courses within 25 miles of the home. Many Antique shops offer rare finds for those wishing to visit Frankfort, Beulah, and Empire. In the winter months, Crystal Mountain is just 25 miles for downhill and cross country skiing. It also offers three gold courses.
