Enjoy the spectacular fall colors of NW lower Michigan. What better place to stay on a river and take a fall kayak trip on the beautiful Platte River where you can see the fabulous Coho run, beautiful fall colors, and peace and quiet! This is my favorite time of the year here on the Platte. You can actually fish from the dock and catch Coho spawning right in front of you without spooking the fish! 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. Good Morning America listed Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore as the best beach in America. Come and explore the majestic beaches in the United States in our backyard! Located on the Upper Platte in Honor on the river is a 3 bed...Enjoy the spectacular fall colors of NW lower Michigan.

Located on the Upper Platte in Honor on the river is a 3 bedroom, 1 bath 1100sq ft house for rent. Large back deck overlooking the Platte River. Fire pit for an evening fire while you sit by the river. Watch for our resident Bald Eagles ( 2 new ones just hatched in 2016) 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 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 (named most beautiful place in the US by Good Morning America!) is just 10 mins away with great beaches. Frankfort is also 15 minutes away. Biking and Hiking trails galore all within minutes! Two Kayaks are available for free for your use during your stay. Three Float Tubes are also available for your pleasure. A Great River for tubing with a swimming hole within walking distance from the house to swim in the morning 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, light houses, or shopping. This is a great place for a weekend away with the guys, the girls, or a romantic weekend with that someone special. Keep your bedroom window facing the river and open at night so the rushing river waters put you 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. 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. 40' LCD TV in bedroom #1. Blu-ray DVD player with plenty of Blu-ray movies to watch. Free Amazon Fire TV, and DirecTV now, 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!More

About the neighbourhood
While Michiganders are still a long way from soaking up the summer sun, our friends at National Geographic have reminded us what lies ahead. Last year, the magazine released its list of the 21 best beaches in the world, including one attraction from right here in our backyard -- Sleeping Bear Dunes. 'Pure freshwater and 450-foot bluffs mean eyes-open swimming and vast views over Lake Michigan,' reads the location summary. 'Walk from the former Sleeping Bear Point Coast Guard Station, now a maritime museum, or along the Sleeping Bear Point Trail over low-lying dunes to the beach. In the distance look for North and South Manitou Islands, prime spots for hiking and camping.' The Dunes are a made up of a 64-mile curve of beaches, coves!
