Peaceful lake setting, yet close to town for shopping, restaurants and sight seeing. This property resides in a private community of 8 cottages that share 180 feet of beautiful lake frontage and common area which includes fire pit, gazebo, 2 docks and sun deck. You will have your own patio area and gas grill for your use that overlooks the lake.
Our stay in Traverse City was completed with our wonderful week in our cottage by the lake. The cottage was quite spacious and comfortable for two. As seniors we travel a lot seeing our great country. The cottage itself was set in a lovely spot. We had a beautiful lake right in the backyard complete with small boating adventures, a private swimming area with a slide, horseshoe pit and a neighborhood fire pit perfect for sitting around at night getting to know other travelers. Some wonderful hiking trails were nearby as well as a frisbee golf course that was really neat. The central location of the cottage allowed easy day trips seeing beautiful rolling countryside as we made our way to explore the adventures of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. Several nice golf courses were nearby and as golfers we played & enjoyed a few.. The owners of the cottage were very gracious & the host owner & his wife attended to our every need during our stay. They were delightful to work with from beginning to end. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone traveling through Traverse City.
Let me just say we had an amazing vacation in Traverse Michigan!! The home was inviting and the location couldn't have been more perfect. While you do share the private shoreline area with 3 other cabins, we were honestly the only ones enjoying the views and crystal clear waters! We also had several paddle boats, floating toys and a small paddle fishing boat at our disposal, which was awesome. We also took advantage of the fire pit by the shoreline and roasted marshmallows with our daughter the last night. Mr. Randy was an awesome host and made sure the cabin was stocked with all the essentials needed for our week long stay. He was also able to accommodate us with an additional day due to the weather. Perhaps my only suggestion would be a little upgrade to the cabin, a splash of vibrant colors would be awesome see! That's not really a complaint just a womanly touch suggestion ;). The cabin was clean and comfortable and we cannot wait for our trip back! Might I add the pictures Mr. Randy has posted bare in comparison to the beautiful clear waters, truly a must see to believe! Thank for making our trip one to remember and we hope to be back soon!
We had an awesome week at this beach house with our 3 young adult kids. Our parents also stayed in the town of Traverse City and were able to come hang out with us for BBQ's, campfire, or just enjoying the sunset! Any time I had a question, the owners responded so quickly! We did so much and will definitely be back. In fact we hope to get this same beach house :) Thank you Randy and Jen for letting us enjoy your beach house. We made unforgettable memories with our family!
The rental was in a very relaxing and quiet location. The weather was awesome and would highly recommend staying in these cabins. Close to tourist attractions and Traverse City. Beats staying in a hotel. Just need to provide your own towels.
We loved our last weekend of summer right on the water.
The sunsets were beautiful and water was shallow for the kids.
Everything we love about the area was so close by, we rented a boat and they delivered to the boat launch two roads over. It was very relaxing, even when it rained it was fabulous.
This cottage on Silver Lake was excellent. It was within 15 minutes of downtown TC shopping, beaches, and tons of activities. It was exactly as stated, very clean, great location. I would stay again. Perfect for a couples getaway or a family of 4/5. The only suggestion I would have would be another seat in the living room area.
