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

We have recently sold this vacation rental home to another family, The Kaszas. The new property ID for this rental is 4846407. Please feel free to send us questions, and we can most likely answer them or forward them over to Tim and Mary Lou. In addition to this rental, they also have two other rentals on the same street, which are 4846442 and 4844413.

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.

Great home!

  • 4 of 5

The home was clean, spacious and we loved the location. The lake access was great for fishing and we enjoyed the top deck each day. We also had great communication with the owners! The kitchen lacked pantry items/basic condiments, only one moveable fan in the house and the kitchen light and Netflix didn't work. We had a really good time and would definitely return to the area.

Great Location & Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property. It is really close to town where there are many activities. The porch is great and we spent considerable time out there playing games and eating. The rooms are much bigger than we thought and there was plenty of room for all of us!

My family and I really enjoyed the area and the solitude. The house was spacious and the back deck area really worked out well for the baby. We would stay here again!!
