Come visit our recently built log cabin and have a wonderful time visiting the Sleeping Bear Dune National Lakeshore area. We are just minutes from many of the local tourist areas you will want to visit such as Empire, Frankfort, Crystal Lake, Traverse City and, of course, the dunes and shorelines of Lake Michigan.
Saffron Road has public access to Little Platte Lake which is a scenic 800 acre lake with quiet, natural beauty. Wildlife includes loons, beaver, eagles, and excellent fishing. The lake is connected to Big Platte Lake via Deadstream and Platte River and continues to Lake Michigan. Canoeing, kayaking, tubing and fishing are the main attractions.
Our log cabin is located in a wooded area only a mile from the the beautiful Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore park and all of its natural attractions such as Pierce Stocking scenic drive, the world-famous Dune Climb, Glen Arbor and the Manitou Islands. The sandy beaches of Lake Michigan are just a few minutes away. You may swim, build sand castles, or walk along the shore and hunt for Petoskey stones!
Our log cabin is open year-round for summer vacations, fall color tours, fishing, winter skiing and snowmobiling and spring mushrooming.
The area has many quaint lakeside communities, wineries, shopping, arts, antiques, dining, golf, casinos, and sight-seeing, etc. Fine arts and museums are located at nearby Traverse City and Interlochen Arts Academy. Take a lighthouse tour at Point Betsie or take the family to the nearby Cherry Bowl Drive-in Movie!
We are located only minutes from Empire, Frankfort, Crystal Mountain(Skiing and golf), Interlochen and Traverse City. Other great golf opportunities are only minutes away as well as cross-country and snowmobile trails.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Phil and Ginny Lavender are the property owners. We are both retired and would love to share our new vacation home with you. Our primary home is in Lake Orion, MI. although we both were born and raised in western Michigan.
Why the Owner Chose Honor, MI, USA:
Phil's mother and grandparents grew up in the area and Benzie County has always been a second home. The family cabin, built in the late '30's is located just a few hundred yards away. Building our own log cabin has always been a goal for Phil and his sister who also built a cabin nearby.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Special attractions to our place are the birds and other wildlife, the closeness of Lake Michigan and the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Little Platte Lake and the Platte River. We especially enjoy our back porch overlooking a quiet stream and woods. We also enjoy evening campfires and back-yard barbecues.
