Big Platte Lake home with firepit

Hidden away on the south side of Big Platte Lake, nestled in a quiet cove, lies the Birch Cove Bungalow. A 10-minute drive to town, the Cove offers the perfect location for your vacation getaway. Take the kids to the Lake Michigan beach at Platte River Point for the day. Or, you can enjoy the privacy of your own 100 feet of sandy beach on the shores of Big Platte Lake. Don't forget to take in a double feature at the Cherry Bowl Drive-In Theater, one of only a handful of drive-ins left in the state.

The Cove is also a great fisherman's getaway, too! Big Platte Lake is chock full of a variety of fish, from bass and walleye to chinook salmon and pike. Bring your boat, or rent one nearby. Don't forget to bring your mooring system as the Cove doesn't have a permanent one.

A few steps up onto the back deck and you've arrived at your home away from home. The three-bedroom cottage can accommodate up to eight people with several sleeping options. The full and queen bedrooms offer privacy, while the kids can all bunk together in the bunkroom. The sleeper sofa in the living room is great for the older teenager or in your group. Bring a few DVDs for the TV as the antenna only picks up a few local channels. The galley kitchen with its breakfast bar is great for getting the kids fueled for a long day on the water.

If it's a little chilly, enjoy your coffee on the enclosed porch. Once it warms up a bit, move on out to the deck. Several trees offer plenty of shade, but there's also plenty of sunshine. Grab a towel and enjoy it from the sandy beach.

The Birch Cove bungalow is an old school cabin, no wi-fi, no laundry, no dishwasher, but it’s perfect. Birch cove is quiet, perfect for swimming and paddle boarding. Kitchen is light on cookware, but you can get by.

We love this place, perfect spot on Platte Lake, very relaxed, and always so hard to leave. We have stayed here three or four times and always look forward to coming back. We have a lot of love for this place, be good to it, it will be good to you.

The perception of the carpeting gave the appearance that the house was not clean even though I knew the house was clean. The toilet shower and sink were very clean but with the bathroom being small I thought the walks and baseboards could have been cleaned. Yes I would stay there again thoroughly enjoyed the house and the house is on a great part of the lake. WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR ENJOY YOUR WINTER!!!!

Overall good but the amenities need to be improved as well as the bathroom. For the amount of rent charged, it needs these items updated. I have stayed in other locations on the same lake with much better amenities for a lot less rent. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
