About Kurt & Emily Your Hosts

We love to travel and have done so extensively with our two children. We have logged over 20,000 miles in our RV while taking our children to all fifty states. Even though we now we live in Black Mountain North Carolina, Traverse City is still considered one of the most beautiful places in the country in our book. We always look forward to spending time at the cabin because it is such a cozy and peaceful place.

Kurt & Emily Your Hosts purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Kurt & Emily Your Hosts chose Traverse City

As a native of Traverse City, I grew up enjoying the lakes around the area. I was thrilled when Kurt and I had the chance to buy this log cabin. We worked hard to update it by adding modern amenities without losing the character and charm and that 'up-north' feel. It is just ten minutes to downtown Traverse City, yet you feel like you are away from it all. Traverse City offers such a great quality of life along with many wonderful local shops and restaurants to enjoy.

What makes this cabin unique

Our favorite thing to do during our stay at the cabin is pack up a picnic lunch and take a cruise around the lake on the pontoon boat. With the boat conveniently docked at the private sandy beach, there is little effort to enjoying the beauty of Silver Lake. This pristine, all sports lake, is the closest lake to Traverse City with easy access to everything. Our evenings usually consist of cooking delicious steaks from our family market, Burritt's Fresh Market while watching the fabulous sunsets. We always end the evening with a campfire next to the lake listening to the frogs and loons. Life doesn't get any better than that!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time on Silver Lake. The cabin was very cozy and we liked the backyard. We liked going to the sand dunes, visiting the towns and boating on the lake. Everything was nearby too. Thanks for making your house perfect for our vacation!

Lovely log Cabin Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The memories of our week at the log cabin will stay with me for many years- morning coffee by the lake, beautiful sunsets, fishing, lovely walks around the area, windsurfing and 7 wonderful days away from city life. Seven of us stayed comfortably in the cottage, 3 teenagers, the grandparents and us. The cottage worked very well meeting all of our needs; the kitchen had everything you could ask for, chairs at the beach and on the deck, even the towels and sheets were all nicely folded upon our arrival. We ventured off to Traverse City, Sutton's Bay and the Sand Dunes, all of which were quite close to the cottage. It was truly a vacation to remember.

Great Family Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from our week stay at this cabin and we leave w/wonderful memories! The accomodations were just like the pictures show. We rented the pontoon boat too which was great for a quick cruise around the lake or more leisurely excursions with swimming and fishing gear in tow. Our two boys (6 an 10) loved the backyard for swimming, fishing (incl frogs and minnows) and campfires. Took several trips into Traverse City as well as Sleeping Bear Dunes. Drove up Old Mission Bay to see the the beautiful homes, wineries, lighthouse and antique stores. Prirates Cove was a great half day adventure for the kids too! We really appreciated the owner's quick responses from the get-go and I would recommend this cabin to family & friends!

Peaceful log cabin

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six enjoyed the peaceful setting especially at night. We enjoyed day trips to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City, wine tasting on mission point, and biking from Traverse City to Suttons Bay. It was always nice to come back to the cabin where we watched the sun come down and then started up a camp fire. Kitchen was fully equipped and cabin was roomy.

Great for families

  • 4 of 5
Our boys had a wonderful time fishing, swimming, and using the row boat. The cabin is a perfect size for a group of 6: our boys loved the bunk beds and the (stuffed animal-like) bear rug in the room facing the lake. The proximity to Traverse City was wonderful, too. This was our first rental experience and the owner made everything easy!
