Western Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

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 Rob

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.

Rob 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 location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this house for a week and enjoyed our time. The house was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The location was really nice--quiet neighborhood and close to everything we wanted to do. We enjoyed our time exploring the sand dunes and rented a pontoon boat one afternoon on Silver Lake. Thank you so much!

The house exceeded our expectations, we were very impressed. The outside deck is huge, and the charcoal grill works great. I definitely would recommend staying at this house and will be returning next year!

Silver Lake Rental

  • 5 of 5

It was our first rental in Silver Lake and our stay was excellent. The home was very clean and well located in a nice neighborhood. The lake access across the street was very convenient for us to keep our boat in the water during our stay. Rob and Katie are very nice landlords and I would definitely rent from them again!

No air conditioning

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful house; frankly I was surprised it was a rental because it is so nice. Very clean inside with comfortable beds & nice furniture. The view of the water & breeze was awesome. It was very hot that week & there was no air conditioning, but the owner brought over extra fans for us. There was a campfire next door to the house every night I was there & the smoke filled our bedrooms at night as the people with the fire did not put it out before they went to bed. Even though it is a great property I would not recommend anyone who has allergies or is heat sensitive to rent there because there is no air conditioning. I would gladly pay extra for the air conditioning as the house, site & surrounding area is so nice. I suffered heat stroke during my vacation & had to go home, leaving my out of State quests on their own for two days. My California quests loved the place & had no problems with the heat or smoke.

We thought everything about the house was great. The only criticism is that even though the property is not listed as lakefront the picture implies a clearer, closer view/approach to the lake than what it really is. Disappointed there was no real access to the lake even from the decline/path.

Owner's Response: We do have deeded access to the lake. There is a boat launch and a shared access site for swimming and fishing from the shore. The shared access is almost directly across the street and down a small hill, but there is not direct access to the lake from the property.

Just What it Says

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying in a hotel room for years during my yearly trip to the dunes. I have FINALLY realized I can stay at a much nicer place with much more for less! We had plenty of room with everything we needed. The house had SPACE. Room for everyone to be able to kick back and relax. We are looking so forward to returning year after year. Thank you for everything!
