Silver Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Do you want to be close to where it's happening, where the action is, but like your privacy too? Then this is the vacation spot for you! The cottage is very clean and quiet, two bedrooms and one bath just a block from Silver Lake in Mears. The cottage is completely furnished, sleeps six, and includes a fully furnished kitchen, refrigerator, central air, satellite, 32' Flat screen HDTV, HD DVD, 100 watt surround sound stereo, X-BOX, INTERNET ACCESS, washer & dryer and of course is children friendly. You’re walking distance to Silver Lake and all the attractions including the famous Silver Lake Sand Dunes ORV Area which overlooks beautiful Lake Michigan. There are go karts, bumper cars, bumper boats, miniature golf, an arcade, wave runners, paddle boats, and pontoon boats, Jeeps, quads, sand rails and more for you to rent, or bring your own. Rentals are all within walking distance. Don't forget there are several golf courses nearby for your enjoyment as well. You have full access to the association pool, play and picnic areas. The property is large, children can safely play and ride bikes because, basically you’re on a cul-de-sac. If you like, bring a fishing pole and fish Silver Lake or in the private canals surrounding the property – front and rear. You can ride bikes to the Sable Point Light House and enjoy a sunset overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan.

The cottage includes 2 boat docks on 2 canals, one on each side of the property, both access Silver Lake, perfect for your personal water craft, a fishing boat or speed boat - 16-19'. The association has its own private boat launch available for you to use and we include a paddle boat for your use; bring life jackets.

Bring your off road vehicles, quads, motorcycles, sand rails, Jeeps, buggies, and experience the Silver Lake Sand Dunes ORV area overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan. Picnic on the beach, swim in Lake Michigan, than go 4 wheeling.

Go tubing, water skiing or just cruise around on Silver Lake. Boat over to the Sand Dunes, hike up the dunes, sand surf down, sunbathe, picnic, swim, or go for a sunset cruise and watch the sunset behind the dunes. After a dip in Silver Lake, or a little water play, go play in the Silver Lake Sand Dunes ORV area, ride your favorite toy, off road vehicle, sand rails, Jeeps, buggies or machines. Watch the sand rails fly over the dunes, watch others try to climb “TEST’ hill in their toys. If you don’t have an ORV go rent a Jeep and try for yourself. If that isn’t enough – go see the nearby Sand Drags races. Afterwards, enjoy a private fire, roast marshmallows, or enjoy the naturally shaded Lanai, overlooking the rear canal and boat dock, enjoy a favorite beverage after a full day playing and exploring. There is a lockable fenced area for storing bikes, scooters, and the like – bring a lock. Saturday to Saturday rentals, sleeps up to 6 persons.

Why Sharon or Jerry chose Silver Lake

This is a great location to walk or bike to all the local activities - Go-karting, arcade, miniature golf, shops, there is so much to do, time fly’s by. Everything is reasonably priced, so your hard earned dollars go a long way, you get your monies worth. You'll make wonderful memories, we do, all the time.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy going to the MI State Park, Silver Lake Sand Dunes ORV, riding bikes to the Light House on Lake Michigan, (locals call it the Candle Stick), beaching boats and Sea Doos across Silver Lake and go to the sand dunes, picnicking and climbing the dunes. We enjoy watching all the unique sand rails and toys go by while eating ice cream at the local store.

Perfect Cottage for your Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year in a row staying at this cottage. We returned because the cottage is in the perfect location, very clean and includes everything you could need. There was lots of space for parking our trailer and 3 vehicles. We walked to town for shopping, food and activites. We also enjoyed using the association pool.
With just a few minutes drive, we were at the dunes. In less than a half hour, we were in Ludington and Pentwater. This is really the perfect spot for our family of 4 (two kids under 6) to stay.

Perfect for a family of 4!

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year we have stayed at this property and love it! Perfect size for a family of four with all of the amenities you need. House is clean and well maintained. The canals are great for fishing. The location is wonderful - walking distance to all of the attractions in town, yet off the beaten path enough that I was comfortable letting my kids ride their bikes around the cul-de-sac. Lots of little extras were nice like movies, games, playstation. Internet was a great addition this year!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed having the amenities of home while on vacation. We were able to cook on the stove or gas grill. Two bedrooms gave us the extra space we needed so that we could relax together as a family. The dock to keep our jet skis made getting to the lake and dunes very convenient. This property is located close to the center of of all the great tourist activities, especially the ice cream shops!

Not worth the money

  • 2 of 5
This house was close to the downtown area but there isn't much more positive to say about it. The owners claim that it sleeps 6 but no more than 4 can comfortably sleep in this home. The sofa bed is held up with cardboard and the floor was more comfortable to sleep on than the mattress.

The canal is only about a foot deep and stagnant in many areas. We expected to canoe and fish on it but after one attempt we were disgusted by it. There were many carp but nothing else.

We were told that the house was to be left in the same condition as it was when we arrived which we had no problems doing. However, the owners showed up at the house at 9:30 am on check out day and hung around as we were trying to pack up and clean up. It was very awkward and an invasion of the privacy that we paid for when renting a house. Because they were hanging around us we left early and did not wash the bedding. We swept, mopped, cleaned the bathroom, vacuumed, did all dishes, laundered and put back all of the bathroom towels, and put back everything we used in the places they belonged.

When our deposit was returned 2 weeks later we were charged a large clleaning fee and another fee for a broken toilet handle! To our knowledge, we left this home in perfect working order and as clean as we got it.

Although we will return to silver lake every year, we will never return to this home or recommend it to another family.

Owner's Response: This is our 7th season renting, and we only rent the cottage a few times in the season; we are disappointed that the renters didn’t have a comfortable stay. We’d like to set the record straight for them and future renters:

On arrival day the renters arrived 3 hours early, we graciously accommodated them. Check out time is 10:00AM on Saturday; they left at 10:30AM a half hour past check out, we arrived at 10:00AM.

We also feel that the sofa bed has reached its life expectancy and will be replacing it and select furniture this next season 2014. Canal waterways are for fishing, canoeing, paddle boats, fishing boats, and access to Silver Lake. Renters tell us all the time they catch, Bass, Perch, Dog fish and more, your luck will vary.

They did not leave the cottage clean as they found it. Our sanitizing and laundry fee is clearly stated in our rental agreement that every renter signs and initials, see (Cleaning). I can only speculate that they did not understood this section. We never expect renters to do the laundry, that’s our job along with sanitizing. We charged the renter for damage, a broken toilet. They helped themselves to fire wood, and we hope they had a good fire or two, no charge. We’ve never had any bad comments or reviews from any of our renters, always rave reviews and comments, and the proof is in the repeat renters we have each season. If you have any questions please call us we can’t solve a problem if we don’t know about it. We want you to have a GREAT experience, as we do each time we're there.
Sharon & Jerry.
