Come see why America chose Sleeping Bear Dunes as the most beautiful place in America ! It starts right here at M-22 and the Famous Lazy Ride down South Platte River . It is IMPOSSIBLE to remember the stresses of every day life while you are here !
Up until now it has been called 'The best kept Secret in Benzie County !' In fact a lot of the locals aren't too happy about the publicity ! They know what a rare gem they have had hiding here !
Seeing is believing and I promise you won't be disappointed when you see all this incredible area has to offer ! The Floor plan is very versatile (Total Space over 2000 sq ft w/finished lower level that has 4 ft by 4 ft windows !) and easy to group people together in many different sleeping arrangements, especially with all of the extra space in the brand new finished basement.. But please feel comfortable here ! We have a nice place but it is for vacationing ! Relax ! No fine art Pieces to worry about breaking. This is a place where everybody should feel welcome ! This is not an area filled with tons of shops and tourist traps and trinkets ! Natural Beauty Abounds everywhere and is FREE !
We headed north on one summer vacation many years ago and fell in love with those towering dunes perched along the Northwest side of Lake Michigan towering out from above the edges of the Forests below. This is paradise and we have never grown tired of exploring, walking a new trail or finding a new beach. Traveling just 10 minutes a little more north,south,east or west, whichever way you choose, there is always something new and amazing to discover in this Peninsula.
From your lazy trip down The South Platte River to The infamous Dune Climb up by Glen Lakes.
Don't forget to go to Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive for the most dramatic overlook in America ! Take your time there. Dont rush.
So. Here is our Dream. There is more than enough room and privacy for a small Family Reunion, (we have two full baths and a new finished basement ) or just a quiet getaway for two. The layout is very flexible and acomidate, yet modern. The location (right across from the famous South Platte River) is excellent !
Any sunny afternoon to explore the area is good for a quiet country drive down the meandering roads between the historical farmsteads of Port Onieda only to discover another stretch of private seemingly untouched beach all to yourself that goes
on for miles and miles...
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh ! And then there are the Sunsets.............
