About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms sleeps 6 to 8

Newly constructed home a stone's throw from private Lake Michigan beach in a small association. This home offers spectacular views of Lake Michigan from just about every room. This is as close to the water as you can be without being directly on the water. This 3 BR, 2 BA home features the following amenities: 2 king size beds, two double beds, a blow up mattress for overflow, two living areas with sliders opening to the waterfront and leather furniture, a LARGE deck that is partially covered for relief from the sun, an upper deck off the master bedroom, hardwood floors, solid surface countertops, whirlpool jet tub, maple cabinets, HD widescreen TV w/DVD player and sound system, wireless high speed internet, and an attached garage. The home is completely furnished and ready for you and your family to enjoy. If you like to use the water, look at the water and hear the waves without paying waterfront prices, this is the best you will find. Please NO pets as our son is allergic..

The surrounding area is very private and quiet but you are just a short drive to a bustling tourist area offering several kid friendly activities. There are also several quality golf courses in the area and an indoor water park in case it rains.

Always wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been coming here for approximately six years every summer. Just down from the lighthouse! It's a perfect cottage especially for youngsters. Very clean and free of things to break. Only a short walk to the beach. We'll be back next year as usual!

An absolute gem in the heart of paradise! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consists of several couples, all young professionals. The house itself is clean, stylish, and spacious, with plenty of common areas indoors and out for spending time with one another. The kitchen and main living area are perfect for entertaining indoors, with clear views facing west, right out over Lake Michigan. Wrapping around the kitchen and living area is a large deck, perfect for entertaining outdoors, and also with incredible views of the lake. In summary, the house does not disappoint at all, and compliments very well the surrounding scenery.

As for location, this was by far our group's best rental experience yet. The house is nestled among the sand dunes, and it is just a short walk to a westward facing, soft sand beach - perfect for swimming, relaxing, and tossing a frisbee or football. We enjoyed perfect weather and the beach was a big hit for everyone - both all day and into the evening.

In summary, everyone was thrilled with every aspect of the property and its surroundings. All in all, and compared to the other homes we've rented, there was not one reason for complaint by anyone in the group. We will return to the area next summer, and we'll certainly have our sights set on staying here again!

Great Time Had by All

This was the perfect place for our family vacation. The amenities were great and well thought out! It was almost like being at home! It is definitely the kind of place we would return to make more family memories.

Beach access was convenient, outdoor shower great, especially loved the views from the deck!

awesome home

  • 5 of 5

2nd time renters, we never want to leave short walk to the beach. Kids have fun walking to the little dunes in the area. Every safe for kids and very quiet area. Ideal part of Silver Lake. A gold mine for us.

Thanks, Horton's.
