Enjoy the sunrise each morning at this comfortable family cottage, located at the west end of Big Platte Lake with 100' of sunny, sandy beach front.

Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our time at Tocco's on Big Platte. Our kiddos are ages 6 and 9 and it was a perfect place for us all to unwind and enjoy the beauty that surrounds. We did miss the entrance road a few times on check-in day, but it's forever burned in our minds now, so we'll remember that the next time we stay.

The beauty of this spot is that it's secluded yet super close to everything you might want if you decide to hop in the car...super close to Riverside for ice cream, essentials, and floating/kayaking to Loon, a short drive to all of the tourist hot-spots, and not far from the drive-in for a family movie-night. Several quaint restaurants are nearby, but honestly, we LOVED making dinners at the cottage...grilling out on the charcoal grill nearly every night and just relaxing. The kitchen is nicely equipped for cooking most anything to enjoy on the picnic table provided on the deck that overlooks Big Platte.

The shallow entry and beach area were fantastic for the kiddos. The fire pit by the beach was also a great place to have nightly bonfires for s'mores making.

The inside of the cottage had everything we needed. There was more than enough space for our family of four to relax through the evening after fun-filled days. The beds were comfortable and the sunrises were spectacular to wake up to.

You can sense the love in this family-owned cottage, as it's apparent generations have made and shared a lot of special memories in that same spot.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week @ Tocco's Catch with our daughter and her 4 sons, ages 10 weeks - 7 yrs. old. It was the PERFECT spot for us. The cottage was so homey and relaxing, and it had some games & toys for the boys to play with, even though we didn't need them. We took some day trips to Sleeping Bear Dunes, the Platte River, and a couple of hikes near Empire and Glen Haven. We also spent a few days hanging out at the cottage. The lake was great for sailing! Having the water shallow so far out was perfect for our grandsons. They had a blast. The owner was wonderful to deal with and was very friendly and accomodating and knowledgeable of the area. We would DEFINITELY love to return to Tocco's Catch next year!

Great option for a retreat with friends

  • 4 of 5

I spent a fantastic weekend here with four other friends. The location of the house was very convenient to visit Sleeping Bear Dunes, Leland and other points of interest we had on our list. The house is comfortable, clean and has a well equipped kitchen. I have to say the best part is the lake view, particularly in a quiet morning. It is stunning.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stay at Tocco's catch every summer and its the highpoint of our year. We have two children (ages 10 and 9) and have visited the lake for the past four summers. The lake has a gentle bottom and a long dock which makes it safe and family friendly. The cabin is close to wonderful Lake Michigan, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Frankfort. In fact, we canoe from the dock to Lake Michigan on the Platte River. The house is comfortable and convenient.
