We have several people to assist onsite, should you have an urgent issue. The NeighborhoodThe cottage is located on Little Platte Lake, ideal for fishing, kayaking, and wildlife viewing. It is relatively shallow, which is why you won't see jet skis or speed boats. We are located on a private bay, directly across from the Medenbrook Nature Preserve. If you enjoy fishing and boating, the Little Platte Lake boat launch is a few minutes out the drive on Saffron road. You can also launch your own kayak or stand up paddle board from the 100 feet of private shore line. Situated on a private road in a quiet community (Saffron & M-22), there are many activities at your doorstep. Explore the beaches and hiking trails of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, or take a trip up to Traverse City for shopping, restaurants, art, and music. The charming towns of Beulah, Empire, Frankfort, and Glen Arbor are within minutes of the cottage. Getting AroundYou really need a car or a bike in these parts. Other Things to NoteKeep an eye out for the resident Bald Eagles across the lake. You may also hear the loons in the early morning, and the coyotes in the distance at night.

The SpaceYour room will have a full size bed. The rest of the house is shared (sorry, only one bathroom here). Parts of my house are the way I like them, but many parts are dated & unfinished...this place is a work in progress! The photos are accurate. Guest AccessExcluding my own bedroom, I am happy to share my entire home and property with you. Interaction with GuestsI work a lot & with people, so coming home & being "on" isn't necessarily my thing. I like to casually hang out on the back deck after work to chill & relax. If you are looking for direction or something to do, I am happy to point you in the right direction. The NeighborhoodMy home is about half way between Beulah/Crystal Lake and Interlochen. The closest town is Honor/Platte Lake area. Traverse City is just over 20 minutes away. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is about 20-30 mins away as well.

Seulement vingt minutes conduire au monde célèbre Sleeping Bear Dunes grimper et la superbe Pierce Jersey Bluffs. Aussi seulement 30 minutes en voiture à Traverse City. Cette maison est imprégnée d'histoire et vous charmera dès l'instant que vous répercutez sa voiture privée en gravier. Construit au début du XXème siècle par notre grand grand-père John Peck, un célèbre journal de Platte Valley, la maison est d'environ 100 ans. Il est construit entièrement à partir de bois locaux et a une personnalité qui ne peut être trouvée dans de nombreux autres foyers. Quand elle a été construite la maison a été utilisée comme un camp d'été pour garçons et filles et a été affectueusement baptisée Camp Wasquam--la famille amérindienne qui a travaillé pour notre arrière grand-père.

                              Catch the sunrise to start your day and the sunset late in the evening from multiple furnished decks overlooking Big Platte Lake - dazzling water views from the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Our private waterfront is bathed by crystal clear water. It is an ideal water-playground for children because of an extensive shallow area (300 feet); perfect for frolicking, wading, Frisbee, and floating, with deeper water farther out for swimming, kayaking, jet-skiing, water-skiing, fishing, and canoeing. A Soft, mint-leaf lawn for volleyball or other barefoot adventures waits at the shoreline, and a flower-garden with a dizzying assortment of fragrant lilies separates the cottage from the guest house. Our 500-foot driveway is lined with magnificent birch, maple and oak trees, lending a feeling of quiet seclusion to the property. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore can be reached in less than five minutes by foot - we are just outside the edge of the park Some of the most beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan are just a five minute drive (ten minute bike ride) from the house. Alternatively, you could board our canoe or kayaks on our private waterfront, wind your way down the Platte River, and emerge two glorious hours later in the splendor of Lake Michigan. Both the cottage and guest house were custom built in the mid-1990’s. The design concept was to allow light reflecting off of the lake to fill the structures with natural light. Open floor plans, skylights and huge windows make artificial lighting completely unnecessary during daylight hours. On clear, moon-lit nights, the glitter from Platte Lake throws an ethereal blue light throughout the cottage.

                              Relax at our family cottage near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The cottage is located on Little Platte Lake, ideal for fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, biking, and wildlife viewing. Winter activities include ice fishing, snow showing, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing. We are located on a private bay, directly across from The Medenbrook Nature Preserve where you have unobstructed views of the tree line. The cottage is located on a private road in a quiet community, but close enough to all that northwestern Michigan has to offer (M-22 & Saffron Road, Honor). Explore the beaches and hiking trails of the National Park, or take a trip up to Traverse City for shopping, restaurants, art, and music. The charming towns of Beulah, Empire, Frankfort, and Glen Arbor are within 10-20 minutes of the cottage. If you enjoy fishing and boating, the Little Platte Lake boat launch is a few minutes out the drive on Saffron Road. You can also launch at nearby Platte Point to access Lake Michigan. Launch a kayak or stand up paddle board directly from our 100 feet of private shore line. With 3 new beds and a queen sleeper sofa, there are a variety of sleeping options. If you like to cook, a gas range and charcoal barbecue are available for your use. You can also try your open fire cooking skills over a bonfire near the lake. The kitchen is well equipped with a coffee maker, tea kettle, toaster, and microwave. If you want to unplug during your time away, we keep a variety of board games and books in the cupboards. The spacious yard is great for outdoor games. Please note that we strive to use environmentally friendly cleaning products and encourage our guests to do the same in order to preserve our lakeside habitat.

                              Catch the sunrise to start your day and the sunset late in the evening from multiple furnished decks overlooking Big Platte Lake - dazzling water views from the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Our private waterfront is bathed by crystal clear water. It is an ideal water-playground for children because of an extensive shallow area (300 feet); perfect for frolicking, wading, Frisbee, and floating, with deeper water farther out for swimming, kayaking, jet-skiing, water-skiing, fishing, and canoeing. A Soft, mint-leaf lawn for volleyball or other barefoot adventures waits at the shoreline, and a flower-garden with a dizzying assortment of fragrant lilies separates the cottage from the guest house. Our 500-foot driveway is lined with magnificent birch, maple and oak trees, lending a feeling of quiet seclusion to the property. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore can be reached in less than five minutes by foot - we are just outside the edge of the park Some of the most beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan are just a five minute drive (ten minute bike ride) from the house. Alternatively, you could board our canoe or kayaks on our private waterfront, wind your way down the Platte River, and emerge two glorious hours later in the splendor of Lake Michigan. Both the cottage and guest house were custom built in the mid-1990’s. The design concept was to allow light reflecting off of the lake to fill the structures with natural light. Open floor plans, skylights and huge windows make artificial lighting completely unnecessary during daylight hours. On clear, moon-lit nights, the glitter from Platte Lake throws an ethereal blue light throughout the cottage. The cottage living room, dining area, and kitchen are one open area, making it possible for big families to spread out while still inhabiting the same space. The guest house interior is also one open space with a sleeping area, a sitting area, and a TV-nook.

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.
