Guestbook comments from the owner
Another great year at Popp Inn. North Bar Lake was the best, thanks for the tip. We had Silver Lake to ourselves for most of the week, it was awesome. Two more kids are up on one ski, shooting for two more next year. So please reserve Fair Week for us in 2008.

I grew up on Silver Lake, swimming, skiing, fishing and snowmobiling. My family has lived in the area for over fifty years and I know Northwest Michigan like the back of my hand. I recognized it's natural beauty long before USA today or National Geographic named it America's most beautiful destination, We would love to share it with you

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Mostly because of the Lake and location. It offers the best of both worlds. Close enough if you want city amenities like restraunts and shoppng and secluded enough if you just want to chill and enjoy the Lake. Silver Lake offers enough room for all sports from skiing to sailing, At times it is peaceful and quiet for kayaking and fishing.

Again it's location,Situated just southwest of TC, it's 5 miles to the Bayand down town Traverse City, 4 miles to the Grand Traverse mall , 20 miles to the National Lakeshore, 2 Casinos within 15 miles, Skiing @ Crystal Mountain 20 miles away, Snowmobile trail head just 5 miles away, leading to hundreds of miles of trails. The Vasa trail for hiking or skiing is just 10 miles away. Then again I could spend endless days just soaking up the sun and cooling off in the spring fed lake. Winter fans can warm themselves by our fireplace in a rustic den or ice fish on the frozen Lake. Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall... all you gotta do is call. Let's us know your interests and we can offer some suggestions to make your stay memorable and desiring to come visit again and again.

The most "at-home" I've ever felt while away from home!

The most "at-home" I've ever felt while away from home!
  • 5 of 5
This is our 8th year coming up to Traverse City but our first year venturing outside of the world of hotels. This cottage beyond met our expectations. From the minute we walked out onto the large deck over looking the lake, we knew that we had found our little slice of heaven for the week. The house is extremely clean and well-kept. It's spacious, cozy, and oh-so inviting. The room that over looks the lake is breathtaking! It was such a joy to walk downstairs in the morning and be welcomed by the glistening lake! As a family with young children, we loved the bunk room!!! Our son was grinning from ear to ear when he saw all the beds for him to choose from! In addition to the bunk room, the little room that is off of the bunk room was GREAT for our daughter, who is only 1, and still in a crib!!!

We were amazed by how well the house was stocked! It had all of the amenities of home, and then some! Dishes, cups, silverware, oven mitts! Honestly, you name it, it was in this cottage!!! The front room of the house (with the television, gaming table, and AWESOME long couch) was a favorite hang out late in the evenings!

The deck that overlooks the lake is a great place to relax and have a glass of wine while watching the sun set!

The beach was fantastic!! The kids spent the week building sandcastles and watching the sea plane (which we were pleasantly surprised to find "lived" just a few houses down)!

The neighbors were also very warm and inviting!

The patio was a favorite place for lunches and dinners!!

When we were leaving the cottage, we were asked by the caretaker if there was any suggestions we had, anything that could've been in the house that wasn't. Our response? "Don't change a thing!"

If you are looking for a family-friendly, free-of-fuss, all-fun cottage, THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!

Thank you again to the owners for a wonderful experience!

Nice place

  • 4 of 5
This was our first trip to the Traverse City area and we enjoyed ourselves. The cottage (house) was very clean and the owners and caretaker were very attentive to our requests both before and during our stay. The welcome basket was a classy touch. And I knew we were in for good things when we arrived and saw clearly marked bins for garbage, returnables (it's a Michigan thing), recycling, and "foot bath." It shows the owners care.

The kids much enjoyed the massive bed room with the 4 bunk rooms (it's actually 2 rooms). The beach, dock, swim platform, kayaks, paddle boat, and ping-pong table were big hits. So was the fire ring and owner-provided wood. Again, classy.

The cottage was, as mentioned, clean and pretty nice. A couple of suggestions (but very minor ones). Maybe a love seat in the basement so the kids can watch TV/movies without having to sit at a table and chairs. Maybe a TV/cable in one or more of the bedrooms for the kids when it's rainy or cold outside. And updating the furniture probably wouldn't hurt, especially in the den - not necessary, but a nice touch.

Now a "wish list" suggestion. Having a pontoon boat available to rent would be a huge plus. We recognize that there are marinas in Traverse City that rent them, but we've found that owners who rent boats are more reasonably priced.

Overall, the place was very worth the money. We had a great time. If you stay here, you'll be happy, we think.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house the week of the Cherry Festival (7/4-7/11) and we could not have been happier. The house is beautiful, incredibly clean, and had all the amenities of home (and then some). We spent most of the week hanging out on the sandy beach, swimming in the crystal clear water, and just enjoying a relaxing getaway. We went into downtown Traverse City a couple of times which is only a few miles away and went to see a Traverse City Beach Bums game, which was awesome.

Just a note to anyone traveling with young children--we stayed here with our 2 year old daughter and brought along her pack-and-play to sleep in. There is a side-room attached to the bunk bed room that was the perfect spot to setup her bed without using up one of the other bedrooms.

What else can I say--the house (and our vacation) were perfect. I highly recommend the house to anyone looking for a vacation in a home away from home.

Grandparents of a family of 13

We had 6 kids age 1 1/2 to 12, 3 grandparents, 2 families with kids, and we brought a power boat to use on the lake. This is a great place for families like ours, as all enjoyed the paddle boats, the rowboat, and the powerboat.

Among the reasons we selected this place was the rental rate within our budget, being on a small lake where the kids had freedom to use the paddle boats, and proximity to other attractions.

We traveled to the Dunes, to Torch Lake, and Pierce Stocking Scenic drive (including the 450 ft climb up the slope for the youngsters). We had relatives from nearby visit to learn of the nationally recognized Ice Cream place "Moomers".

Had the bonfire on the beach complete with "Smores", and just enjoying the clear starlight nights. We were there with perfect weather, and no bugs. Kids enjoyed fishing right off the dock.

We got to visit with the owners Ron & Bridgett, and they are really nice people, helping with suggestions of where to go, and how to get there.
