“Nice central location, loud”

These cottages are also known as Riverside Acres, even though there is no listing in TripAdvisor as such. The cottage we had was musty (I was sneezing and congested all night), a bit dirty (cobwebs, dead bugs), but the linens were spotless and smelled clean and fresh. The cabins are on the Platte river (which was running very swift), and you can use the kayaks for free, but there is a fee to be picked up or dropped off. They are also the kind that "fill with water", so we did not use. I don't think we could have gone up stream anyway. They are also located right off the busy and noisy highway.

“Great location”
Reviewed 19 February 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Great resort! We enjoyed the access to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. We also enjoyed the Kayaking and fishing on the Platt River and the Fall colors. The evenings at the riverside fire pit were beautiful. The cabins and.kitchen facilities were very nice and clean.

Our stay at these cottages was wonderful. We rented 2 cottages. Each one was comfortable and well stocked for our needs. Being on the river was so soothing. Richard, our host was so helpful to our needs. I highly recommend these cottages.

First time we have stayed at these cottages on the Platte River (known as Riverside Acres) and we will be back next year! It is so nice to stay at a facility that is run by the owners who care about their guest. The cottages are small but include pretty much everything you need. The linens smelled so fresh and I think that is because Richard's wife takes the extra time to hang them outside in the fresh air to dry. It is also centrally located to multiple tourist attractions or you can stay at the cabin and go kayaking or fishing. They have kayaks to rent for a very low cost. If you are looking for quiet and friendly place to stay, I would recommend giving them a try.

Our stay at Riverside Acre Cottages was everything we wanted. Friendly and accommodating owners. Clean and convenient to all the major natural attractions. Quiet and away from the tourist crowds. We loved having the river at our doorstep. And we are grateful for Richard coming to our rescue with the kayaks!. Made some new memories.
