Description from owner


New pictures are coming as the house has been repainted inside and out to a pleasant blue and white as well as some neat interior modifications!

Enjoy the spectacular beauty of NW Lower Michigan. What better place to stay on a river and take a kayak trip or float trip on the beautiful Platte River where you can see the fabulous Coho run, beautiful summer weather, and peace and quiet without the rush hour traffic! This is my favorite time of the year here on the Platte.

National Geographic released its list of the 21 best beaches in the world, including one attraction from right here in our backyard -- Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City. Good Morning America listed Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore as the best beach in America. Come and explore the majestic beaches of the United States in our backyard!

Located on the Upper Platte in Honor on the river is a 3 bedroom, 1 bath 1100 sq ft house for rent. Large back deck with large grill overlooking the Platte River. Fire pit for an evening fire while you sit by the river. Watch for our resident Bald Eagles fly over the river in search of fish. Great Blue & Green Herons also reside on this river along with ducks, otter, beaver, mink, and Trout & Salmon

House also has a ceiling fan and A/C. Large propane BBQ Grill for your cooking pleasure. Enjoy listening to the songbirds in the morning while having breakfast on the deck. Traverse City is 25 minutes away while Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore 10 minutes away with great sand dunes and beaches up and down the coast. (named the most beautiful place in the US by Good Morning America!) is just 10 mins away with great beaches. Frankfort is also 20 minutes away. Biking and Hiking trails galore all within minutes! Two Kayaks are available free for your use during your stay. Four Float Tubes are also available for your pleasure. A Great River for tubing with a swimming hole within a short walking distance from the house to swim in the morning noon or evening. Beer is NOT included (Just kidding). Miles and Miles of beaches within minutes of the cottage.

We have one of the few outdoor Drive-Inn theaters remaining in the United States right down the road! Centralized location for wineries, casinos, lighthouses, or shopping. This is a great place for a weekend away with the guys, the girls, or a romantic weekend with that someone special. Kids will love wading in the river or tubing!

Keep your bedroom window open facing the river at night so the rushing river waters put you gently to sleep. Bedroom #1 has a queen size bed, #2 has a full bed and bedroom #3 has a full-size bed. Interior & exterior of the house has been recently repainted to a pleasant blue so pics are outdated. Will update later.

Why rent a small Motel room for $200 a night plus food, and for nearly the same price and not be located on the Beautiful Platte River in a fully furnished house with privacy! Save big $$$ by not eating out. With a fully equipped kitchen and a BBQ grill on the back deck with great views of the river, you can't go wrong. Picnic table right on the river to dine on and enjoy the sights and sounds of a river.

Sleeps up to 7 people. Full laundry and kitchen. Home theater system in the living room with 50" 4K LCD HDR T.V. with 4K DVD player, 55" LCD TV in bedroom #1 with Blu-ray DVD player with plenty of 4K & Blu-ray movies to watch. Amazon Fire TV, Hi-speed WI-Fi, Linens, pots & pans furnished. Spices and condiments stocked in the kitchen. Remember, if your looking for a pool, it will be right in front of you on the river!

Looking forward to your great reviews when you stay here as others have!
