Cozy Waterfront Cottage and Guest House on Big Platte Lake Near Dunes!

Located in: Honor
Catch the sunrise to start your day and the sunset late in the evening from multiple furnished decks overlooking Big Platte Lake - dazzling water views from the living room, dining room, and kitchen.

Our private waterfront is bathed by crystal clear water. It is an ideal water-playground for children because of an extensive shallow area (300 feet); perfect for frolicking, wading, Frisbee, and floating, with deeper water farther out for swimming, kayaking, jet-skiing, water-skiing, fishing, and canoeing. A Soft, mint-leaf lawn for volleyball or other barefoot adventures waits at the shoreline, and a flower-garden with a dizzying assortment of fragrant lilies separates the cottage from the guest house.

Our 500-foot driveway is lined with magnificent birch, maple and oak trees, lending a feeling of quiet seclusion to the property. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore can be reached in less than five minutes by foot - we are just outside the edge of the park

Some of the most beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan are just a five minute drive (ten minute bike ride) from the house. Alternatively, you could board our canoe or kayaks on our private waterfront, wind your way down the Platte River, and emerge two glorious hours later in the splendor of Lake Michigan.

Both the cottage and guest house were custom built in the mid-1990’s. The design concept was to allow light reflecting off of the lake to fill the structures with natural light. Open floor plans, skylights and huge windows make artificial lighting completely unnecessary during daylight hours. On clear, moon-lit nights, the glitter from Platte Lake throws an ethereal blue light throughout the cottage. The cottage living room, dining area, and kitchen are one open area, making it possible for big families to spread out while still inhabiting the same space. The guest house interior is also one open space with a sleeping area, a sitting area, and a TV-nook.

Beautifully furnished, Grand Piano, Wireless High-speed Internet, Cordless Phone, Cable TV (36 inch Flat-Screen + DVD in Cottage, 40 inch LCD TV + VCR in Guest House), Stereo, CD Player, Boom box, , DVD Collection, Full Kitchen, Dishwasher, Microwave, Refrigerator, Freezer, Ice Maker, KitchenAid Toaster, Gas Range, KitchenAid Mixer, Cuisinart Food Processor, Cuisinart Waffle Iron, 12 attractive place settings, Calphalon cookware, culinary gadgets of all kinds, 100% Egyptian Cotton Linens provided, Portable Crib, High Chair, baby bath, baby swing, baby buggy, Washer, Dryer, Charcoal Grill (BBQ), Fine Patio Furniture, Waterfront Fire pit, Bicycles (2), Water Floats (2), Boat Mooring, 2 brand new Perception kayaks, 17-foot Grumman canoe, paddles, life vests, Private Paved Parking area accommodates several cars, boats, trailers, and campers, 2-car garage, No Smoking.
