Upper Silver Lake Vacation Home

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Large Living Room, Large Kitchen, Sleeps 6 adults

Lake home on beautiful Upper Silver lake with TONS of room. The house is directly across the street from the lake’s private access. There is a fire pit, picnic table, and if you like to fish you can do that too! They stock the lake every year.

The side deck is good for sun bathing. In the backyard there is a fire pit for late night campfires.

The house has all the amenities you need. A full size washer and dryer, plenty of parking for dune buggies and trailers.

The location is great. Secluded enough to relax, but close enough to all the action if you are up for it. Downtown Silver Lake is approximately 2 miles away where you can rent Jeeps, dune buggies, jet skis, boats etc. If you have any questions about the house just ask!

Quiet Hours: As neighbors are close and families have young children we will ask that all guests respect quiet hours. Quiet hours will begin at 10:00 pm and end at sunrise. We are currently working on getting internet, TV and phone at the house. The cable company has not been able to get it installed yet. We will update this note as soon as we have it installed.

Although the house yields itself for larger gatherings, parties will not be tolerated.

About Katy

This house was my childhood home. It is a beautiful area and I feel fortunate to have grown up in such a wonderful place . Many things have changed from my childhood, but a lot is still the same. From Mac Woods dune rides or the State Park to Lake Michigan there is so much to do. I love our lake, Upper Silver, because it is private and you can be more secluded if you want. On the other hand Silver Lake is only a few minutes away and you can be in all the action quickly! Pentwater is also a fun little spot and only 15 mins away. I used to work in Silver Lake and Pentwater in the summers growing up and it was a great time in my life. Now that I have a family I get to share this beauty and fun with my husband and son. It is special to experience the area all together.

Katy purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

We also own the property next door to our house and it is available to rent also. The listing # is 909555. If you need more room you can rent this property in addition to this house. It is great as a guest house, in-law suite, or kids cottage.

Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! Pictures dont do it justice! The people we rented from were also amazing. When we return we will be staying here from now on. It is 5 minutes from the dune, very quiet and peaceful, the neighbors are wonderful and the lake was beautiful. This is a must stay

Accommodating Hosts and a Nice location

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this Upper Silver Lake Vacation Home. Our plans changed a little and we ended up getting in earlier than expected, I checked with the hosts and they were able to accommodate our change and it was very appreciated! The property was clean and with all the items we needed during the stay. We enjoyed time on the dunes, renting a pontoon, horseback riding, and Lake Michigan beach time with a light house tour all in close proximity to this house.

Space... Lots of space.

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was clean and spacious inside. There was a few burnt out light bulbs. The pans weren't great... for cooking pancakes. The top deck was nice with lots of space. However the side deck was in disrepair and overgrown. Other than that... SPACE!.. Oh and location, yeah, the location is pretty awesome too.

Family summer vacation

  • 4 of 5

It was a great space for our family easily accommodated all of us. The deck is absolutely wonderful to hang out on and enjoy the day without having to be in the sun and a great space for the kids to play. The house gets hot on hot days but the size of the house and quietness of the neighborhood was wonderful!
