My wife and I have been sharing our 'slice of heaven' for 30 years.

Steve Kellar purchased this cottage in 1984

Unlike many lake properties where the cabins are close to one another, Silver Rock will give you the feel of the only cottage on the entire lake.

One visit to Silver Rock will give you that true 'up north' feeling. Lake Huron is approx. 3 miles away and there are smaller Trout streams in any direction. The American Indians referred to this area as 'Sacred Land'.

THIS COTTAGE WAS EVERYTHING AND MORE. TRULY, A SLICE OF HEAVEN...

  • 4 of 5
My wife, and a couple's friend spent 5 nights at this cottage and made these days very relaxing and a rewarding experience. I could really be very complimentary to this cottage if the weather had cooperated just a little bit more. However, we live in Michigan and just wait 5 minutes and what was an 80 degree day can turn 65 and rainy, and that was our trip. The savings grace was we chose to go to Ocqueoc Falls on the only warm day during our stay and it was delightful. The trip with our friends couldn't have been any better, they are terrific people and my wife and I hope this relationship can last our remaining years, so, 20 plus years then.

I would have given this cottage a 5 star and much more had the amenities favored us such as the fire pit being nearby and closer to our cottage. We had one fire!, and I believe if more convenient and closer access to our cottage we would have enjoyed it more and not have had to race to the cottage to use the bathroom and then navigate back to a fire pit a couple hundred yards away and on another piece of property all together. Our friends and my wife and I enjoy many morning and evening fires so we understand what a fire brings to a vacation

In light of all of this we found so much to do from taking the lighthouse tour as we were nearby having a picnic on Lake Huron. Picking rocks for a teachers friend school project to just talking with our friends in a loose and rewarding way with Lake back drop was compelling and serene.

Lastly, and with good humor we were made aware that a bird feeder cage went missing and it was such a concern that we actually felt guilty of stealing it. So, to lighten the mood we made joke of it. I am sure some squirrel in their ever intelligent ways carted off with that bundle so as to figure out how to open and eat the contents inside. What was hilarious is at the last moment and just before leaving we did see a squirrel with empty cage in its mouth hooking it back up to the chain so as to remind the homeowners to please fill the thing up again!!!

I would recommend you stay at this well kept, well located and wonderful cottage. The shower pressure is great. You feel clean that's for sure. It is absolutely amazing the sites and peace you gather while visiting. Oh!, the fishing was horrible. We visited and spent many hours going from one tip of the lake to the next and caught two fish! That's fishing though. Don't forget your OFF! Deep woods OFF!!!

Peace

Owner's Response: Hi Robert,
One thing I have learned about fishing is that it is directly related to time spent on the water. Regarding the firepit that was 200 yards away and on a separate piece of property, it may have seemed that way because we own 272 ft of frontage. Thanks for a nice review! I'll see about ordering up some warmer weather your next visit.

IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!

It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!
  • 5 of 5
My wife and two boys spent a week at Silver Rock Cottage and loved any minute. The hosts, Steve and Vickie, are discreet but very friendly and work to ensure the best possible time. A beautiful setting- quiet and peaceful, with no other houses in sight. The boys couldn't get enough of the paddleboat and we took advantage of the other two boats, too, plus a 3 hour canoe trip down the Ocqueoc River to Lake Huron. The cottage, which is immaculate and comfortable, is relaxing but there's lots to do close-by. It's also just an hour from Petoskey and the Mackinac ferry. We made lots of memories and look forward to coming back (with or without the kids!).

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the location of the cottage and the beautiful view of the lake. Everything was clean, our hosts were so friendly and helpful, and we had a great secluded atmosphere. Plus our two young daughters enjoyed the paddle boat and the motor boat. 5 stars for sure! There are a lot of things to do close by; Black Mountain Rec Area has many trails for hiking, XC-skiing. The Ocqueoc Falls while small are still something to see. Kayaking or canoeing Ocqueoc Lake and/or Ocqueoc River from the lake to Lake Huron would be another great thing to do. We plan to return.

LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
We've been traveling to this location for many years and it just gets harder and harder to leave everytime we visit. The very cozy,always spotless, fully furnished cabin has awesome views of the lake from inside or off the wrap around deck, where you can see all kinds of wildlife both in the water and on the shores. While there are plenty of other things do within an hours drive from the cabin, we rarely leave the property while visiting as we go to enjoy the serenity of the lake and fishing, which was excellent this time of year. Being a no-wake lake makes for a tranquil cruise around the lake.The hosts are always hospitable in recommending things to see or places to visit and are just as likely to invite guests down to the fire pit for an evening around the bonfire. Or if you prefer to have privacy, they are very respectful of that too. If you are looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this little piece of heaven on earth will definitely bring some peace and calm back into your life for the time you are there. We are already looking forward to our next visit!!

AMAZING LOCATION AND AWESOME HOSPITALITY

  • 5 of 5
Just spent a BEAUTIFUL Fall weekend at Silver Rock and we know we will return someday. TRULY loved our stay there. We took a friend along and our dog who was welcomed and treated just as we treat him. He loved the resident chocolate lab, Zoe, who is a real sweet girl. The view from the cabin is AWESOME and breathtaking! Amazing sunsets, AMAZING STAR GAZING!!! A pair of nesting bald eagles with two young on the far side of the lake and we were able to have close up fly overs by all FOUR!!! Cormorants, geese, ducks, loons and a Great Blue Heron too. Close drive to go to Ocqueoc Falls and lots of light houses, Lake Huron beaches and so many great places we didn't get to visit.
Cabin is CLEAN and up to date, appliances, full kitchen and even a washer and dryer if you need it. It's a great value - they have a boat with motor, canoes, paddle boat and a fire pit ring with firewood and it's all included, no extra fees for any of that. If you want to canoe the river out to Lake Huron, they will come and pick you up for $20!!!
