Beautiful, new 2000 sq. ft ranch located on 40 acres of rolling hills overlooking Platte Lake and Lake Michigan with property adjacent to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park.
Located in the center of Crystal Lake, Frankfort, and Empire. Property is within 1/4 mile of scenic M-22. Enter through a private, wooded canopy driveway. Opens to a home located on a high hill with views of Big Platte Lake.
The home has 3 bedrooms (sleeps 8 comfortably) and 2 full bathrooms. All bedrooms have windows that face the lake.
- Bedroom 1 is a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. It includes a full size bed and twin bunk beds with a walk-in closet and a private deck with a bistro table and chair set - perfect for morning coffee or late night star-gazing.
- Bedroom 2 has a queen size bed, a large dresser, and two windows for a spacious lake view.
- Bedroom 3 includes twin bunk beds, a closet, and large window for viewing the lake.
- Bathroom 1 offers two sinks and a tub/shower combination.
- Bathroom 2 includes one sink, a large walk-in shower with seat, and a linen closet that holds extra sheets and towels.
The kitchen has espresso cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and large prep counter. The counter is perfect for setting up a buffet or for an extra eating area with the available stools and pendant lighting. The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen with a round table and cozy seating for four and a large window facing the lake.
The laundry room has a full-size washer and dryer and laundry tub for easy clean-up.
The great room has a recessed ceiling, wood-burning stove, and a sectional for relaxation and for taking in a movie. There is a flat screen television connected to a DVD/VCR. Movies are available.
From the great room, there are two sets of sliding glass doors with access to two decks. On the North side, there is a small deck which includes a grill. On the South side, there is a large deck that accommodates a large patio table and chair set for eating outdoors and taking in the view.
The property has beautiful, walking trails with a look-out point of Lake Michigan and Empire Dune, the largest dune of Sleeping Bear National Park. Wild-life that roam the area include eagles, deer, fox, pileated woodpeckers, grouse, and turkeys. The property is located close to Sleeping Bear National Park, Peterson Beach (Lake Michigan), Platte River (canoeing, kayaking, tubing), restaurants, shopping, etc. Maps, brochures, and a list of featured attractions are available upon request.
The house is only a few years old, and is well equipped with hardware. It is situated in a forest with a stunning view of the lake. During our stay we saw several wild animals close-up just outside our windows.
House was clean and owners were very helpful and quick to react to any questions we had. Only small downside is that the master bedroom with 1 queen and a bunk bed for 2 persons is fairly small, and with 4 people sharing that room, we felt a bit cramped.
Plenty of things to do in the areas, especially if you love water. Also Sleeping Bear Dunes nationalpark is close by, which a.o. offer stunning view of Lake Michigan.
If you are a wine lover, there are plenty of vineyards within 30-45 minutes drive from the house.
If we ever return to the Honor area we will certainly consider this rental again.
This home was fantastic!! In a great location by rivers to float and kayak, and Lake Michigan. Frankfort and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park were each only 20 minutes away. The house was clean, updated and had all amenities you would want when traveling. We would definitely return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property in July 2016. The owners were easy to work with and gave excellent directions on how to find the property and how best to take care of their beautiful home. The home has a wonderful view of Platte Lake from the living area and each of the bedrooms. The home is in excellent condition and is very well taken care of. Although it is off a main road where there are many vacation homes, it has a secluded feel to it as there is a long driveway that takes you up to the home. We hardly knew we even had neighboring homes nearby while at the property. It is 5-10 minutes to a nearby beach on Lake Michigan, around 20-25 minutes to Sleeping Bear Dunes, and approximately 30 minutes to Traverse City. This was a great place to stay that allowed us to see a beautiful area in Northern Michigan.
Very nice private location. Close to Lake Michigan and Platte River. The house is like new and each room nicely decorated. Everything was provided. The views of the lake were wonderful to wake up to. The owners were nice to do business with and we would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a vacation.
Absolutely fantastic location in a beautiful, new full-size home! Very close to many well-known NW Michigan destinations. Everything we needed was provided, and we hope to stay there again in the future. Full kitchen and clothes washer/dryer makes an extended stay a non-issue. You won't be disappointed!
