Walter,I wanted to send you a note and let let you know that the Snow family had a terrific time last week at Platte Lake.You have a beautiful home and it was perfect for what we needed. It was an ideal location for us to get to all the destination spots we were wanting to get to. The deck was a popular place to be all week (when not enjoying kayak trips on the beautiful river. Our boys loved hopping on their bikes for trips to the Trading Post. All of us left with memories that will be cherished forever. In fact, as we were getting ready to leave, my parents were already talking about 'next year'.So, if you do make the house available next summer, we may be interested in visiting again. Thanks again for sharing your lake house with us and please feel free to contact me with any questions and also to confirm when you we should expect deposit funds to be returned. Regards,

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful and very clean home! We loved our vacation on Big Platte Lake. Home had everything we needed and more. Make sure you check out the nice sandy swimming sand bar area at North end of lake - you can anchor your boat there and swim. If you rent a boat (try Beach Watersports - Rob) you will need to anchor it farther out than the dock and make sure you have a heavy duty anchor (or 2) as the wind is sometimes strong. The DVD/VCR player was hard to operate, but we just used our portable DVD player. Bring your water shoes or pick some up at Trading Post or Riverside. Trading Post has awesome ice cream and pizza. Cherry Hut has delicious food and loved their Cherry Ade (like lemonaide, but better). Cherry Bowl Drive-In was soooo much fun - afordable and great quality movie! Hungry Tummy in Beulah has a great fisherman's platter on Fri. night. Grocery shopping at Honor Family Market in Honor or Shop N Save & Ben Frankline on Benzie Hwy. Tubing/Kayak/Canoeing down Platte River (use Riverside or Trading Post) is a MUST! If you want to watch the sunset on Lake Michigan (get there a little early 9pm as the parking area is small) - go down Deadstream to Peterson Rd - drive approx. 10 min - bring a blanket and relax and watch the sunset - AMAZING!! Sleeping Bear Dunes Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive is also a must. We really loved this home - the deck with plenty of seating, the firepit, the large kitchen, the large bedrooms and comfortable beds, the clean and modern bathrooms, the washer & dryer - We loved it all!
