    About this property

    Quiet Woodland Retreat Near Upper Platte River

    Family-friendly vacation home with ski-in/ski-out access and sauna
    Platte River Ridge is a beautiful, quiet, 52 private acres to rest while visiting all of the best that Northwest Michigan has to offer. There are thousands of acres of State Forest land to the west and south of our property. We previously owned a sawmill and lumber manufacturing business for 30+ years, we covered the walls and floors of this custom 2300 sq. foot home with solid northern wood. With an enormous central stone European Fireplace. A wooded walk down the country road brings you to the foot of our hill and access to the upper Platte River. There is superb trout fishing & swimming in warm weather. Our north border is a county maintained country road/trail that leads directly to state snowmobile/hiking trails and the Michigan Shore to Shore hiking and horseback riding trail. Mushroom hunt, hike, mountain bike, horse ride and more right from your doorstep. It is just one mile to the canoe & kayak access on the upper Platte River (Veterans Park). We’re just 15 minutes from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore or Interlochen Art Academy. The Benzie area is host to many inland lakes and rivers, as well as many gorgeous Lake Michigan beaches. Just minutes to the world renowned Crystal Downs Golf Course and many other spectacular golf courses. Traverse City is a short 20 minutes to the NE and offers fabulous dining and shopping opportunities, plus the largest regional airport (Cherry Capital Airport, TVC.) Additionally Airway Estates airstrip is just 2 miles north. The area has many things to offer; fishing charter boats in Frankfort, boat rental on Crystal Lake, Antiques, Cherry Bowl Drive-In Movie Theater, Gwen Frostic's Presscraft Papers, Dune Climb at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Concerts at Interlochen Center for the Arts, Traverse City Cherry Festival, TC Film Festival, Beach Bums - Minor League Baseball, Fall Color Tours, Wine Tasting tours, Casinos, Ski at Crystal Mountain and more. Platte River Ridge is the perfect quiet place to base your Northwest Michigan vacation activities. Keywords: Quiet, Clean, Unique, Up North Cozy, Central location Northwest MI Location
