  • Spacious Comfortable Home in a Great Location

    "This home is just as described and is well-represented in the photos. This is the third home we have rented on Big Platte Lake and find it perfect--you can go to several different beaches, kayak Platte Lake out to Platte Point beach, go to the Cherry Bowl drive in, pick blueberries, and have some great family time. One night when we were having a fire, 2 foxes walked right by us. We could have reached out and touched them (we didn't, of course, but they were interested in our smores!). You will need to bring your own bed linens and towels, and also your own pillows if you are picky about that. The neighbors were quite nice; one neighbor is apparently the head of the homeowner's association, and my nephew called him the Mayor of the Lake :). He took some photos of our family for us right before we left. The kitchen was pretty well stocked with equipment and dishes; we brought our own non-stick pan which was helpful. The water was very shallow a long way out. Not great for swimming (would be great if you had toddlers), but we rented a kayak for the week and our younger kids had fun just paddling around safely in the shallow water. I would recommend this property!"

    "This was our second year of spending a wonderful week here and we are already planning on going back again next year, can't wait. Perfect set up to spend a lot of quality time outdoors and the Pontoon Boat is great to have, we went out on it everyday. Nice size kitchen with plenty of cooking supplies and very comfy family room to lounge around, read and watch movies. Thank you Mary and Dale!"

  • Great condition

    "Located in central Michigan it offers a great area to travel for day trips. We went to Lansing, Grand Rapids and Mount Pleasant and home that eve. The area is a bit remote but very close to several great golf course's and many lakes. The property is older but has been completely remodeled and is in great condition. The owner is very helpful and will work with you to make your trip a good experience. With a bath and bedroom on each floor it's a great couples choice."

  • Gorgeous property!

    "I stayed here with a group of 10 friends in our late 20's/early 30's and we had an amazing weekend. As soon as we pulled up in our car we saw three deer grazing in the yard. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need, and the outdoor dining table was a perfect place for us to all share meals. The heated (and lighted) pool was a blessing as it was already getting chilly, and nights were spent there or around the campfire making s'mores. A large dining table inside gave us space to all play card games once we were done with the pool, and the living room was a comfy place for us all to sit and chat. The beds were some of the softest and most comfortable I've ever slept on, like staying in a 5 star hotel. The frog pond was pretty cool to check out, and when it started raining some of them even hopped up to the pool to join us for a swim! We didn't get out at all to see the beach or neighborhood because we loved the property so much and saw no reason to leave. There were two small issues: Because of all the water and woody location, mosquitoes were a problem. Bring lots of bug spray and citronella candles/incense sticks to make sure you don't end up as covered in bites as I did! Second, a neighbor called the owner to complain, and said we'd had a large party lasting until 3am. In fact it was only the 10 of us on the lease hanging out in the pool until about 10-11pm before heading inside for the night. The owner was totally understanding when we reassured him no such party took place, but it put a damper on our next night as we felt like we couldn't use the pool or have any conversation outside for fear of this neighbor calling the police on us (as was threatened). I'm not sure if this neighbor is a common problem or not, but if your group consists of night owls who want to stay outside around the pool/firepit a little later, this might not be the place for you. Neither of those problems are the owner's fault, just things to be aware of. We still plan on returning as soon as we can plan it!"

Michigan Travel Tips

Proud Michiganders refer to their state as “The Mitten” because of its shape. Also known as The Great Lakes State, it’s no surprise that some of the best places to vacation are near Lake Michigan. Here are some of the most wonderful:

Northwest Michigan

Northwest Michigan is a great vacation spot with ample attractions for both families and couples. Check out these two wonderful towns for a relaxing getaway:

Charlevoix

Charlevoix is a beautiful lakeside town with a Cape Cod feel. Here are some of the best things to do and see here:

- Fisherman’s Island State Park has miles of trails and serene beaches.

- Castle Farms was built in 1918 and the gardens here provide a gorgeous place to simply stroll. There’s also a museum, an enchanted forest and a train for the kids to ride.

- Hit the links at Dunmaglas or Belvedere golf clubs, which have stunning lake views.

Traverse City

Traverse City is more crowded than Charlevoix because it’s very popular due to the excellent wineries, shopping and lakeside attractions. Better yet, it’s famous for its cherry production, so you’ll find a lot of treats made from the sweet fruit here. If you’re looking for excitement and relaxation, check out these hot spots:

- Get your fill of delightful locally produced wines with a tasting and tour at some excellent vineyards and wineries, including Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery, Bowers Harbor Vineyard, Shady Lane Cellars and Left Foot Charley.

- Head to the only commercial organic tea farm in North America - Light of Day Organic Farm.

- Soar above the waters of Lake Michigan with a thrilling ride from Traverse Bay Parasail or a private balloon tour from Grand Traverse Balloons.

- Sample some cherries and cherry-based treats from Cherry Republic. Bring some gifts home to family and friends!

- Catch a film or opera at the historic State Theatre, which was completely renovated and reopened by famous director Michael Moore in 2007.

- Go shopping in Sutton’s Bay, a quaint little town just a short drive north.

- Check out the National Cherry Festival during the first week of July and the Traverse City Film Festival during the first week of August.

Southwest Michigan

Southwest Michigan is a popular vacation destination for other Michiganders and locals from around the Midwest. Here are the top things to do in the most well-known destinations:

Kalamazoo

This big city in south central Michigan is the home of Western Michigan University. Here are the best things to do in Kalamazoo:

- See fine art and history at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts and the Kalamazoo Valley Museum.

- Grab breakfast or lunch at popular cafe Crow’s Nest, get dinner at quirky farm-to-table spot Food Dance and don’t miss sweet treats at Confections with Convictions and Sweetwater’s Donut Mill, which are simply divine.

Saugatuck

- Bask in the sun on the pristine sand at Oval Beach

- Catch an outdoor concert and river views at Wicks Park.

- In the summer, take a jeep tour and lay out on the untouched beaches of Saugatuck Dunes State Park, which boasts 850 acres. In the winter, go cross-country skiing on the miles of trails.

- Shop in the boutiques and grab lunch on historic Butler Street.

South Haven

- Hit the beaches and go back to nature at Van Buren State Park, the Kal Haven Trail and the historic South Haven Lighthouses.
