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.
