Our cottage is located on beautiful Upper Silver Lake tucked away near the shores of Lake Michigan. Only a mile from Silver lake and the Silver Lake Dunes. If you like sun, sand, fishing, swimming, boating and being on the dunes, then this is the place for you! We have a private floating dock and a stationary extended dock too. Beach sand by the lake is nice for the little ones or young at heart. The depth of water by shore is shallow till you get to end of our dock. At night enjoy breath taking sunsets on Lake Michigan at the light house, Little Sable Point. There are light house tours through out the whole summer. Star gazing and fantastic camp fires at our wonderful large fire pit will build wonderful lifetime memories. We have a floating raft, a row boat with a Minn Kota trolling motor (rent motor for 25.00/week) and a paddle boat, all these but motor, come with your rental.We have a 24 ft. Pontoon boat for rent. WE have central air too.

We have a wonderful private floating dock also. A nice big fire pit by the lake to enjoy under the millions of stars.

We stayed and the Spanding's cottage on Upper Silver Lake for the first time during Memorial weekend this year. This cottage is meticulously maintained and perfectly set up for the ideal lake vacation. The home has spectacular views of the lake both to the east and all the way up the lake to the north. The beachfront is newly landscaped and beautifully finished with a dock, seawall, beach area, fire pit area and nice beach sand. We brought our pontoon with us and tied it to the dock. The launch is only a few hundred feet away from the cottage and is easy to use.
The cottage was built some time ago but is very nicely updated. There are two good sized bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs with several other pieces of furniture that can be used to accommodate sleeping. There are two bathrooms, two fire places and two large living areas (one up and one down each). The kitchen is modern and clean with lots of counter space. There is a dining area in the kitchen but we always ate on the deck where there are two tables (one is huge). The furniture is all appropriate for the cottage and suitable for the number of people that can sleep here. There is plenty of parking out front.
The Spandings are very nice people and they have organized the preparation materials and the "things to do in the area" materials with great care and professionalism. This cottage is extremely close to the main entrance to the motorized dune access area and also close to downtown Silver Lake by taking back roads. We would recommend this cottage experience to anyone!
5 star!! Beautiful home right on the lake. Perfect for our large family. Owner was extremely nice. A great choice for a vacation rental.
From the minute my family entered the cottage, we were impressed again and again throughout our stay. The owners have really made every effort to ensure their guests enjoy a relaxing, stress-free, convenience-filled vacation...and WE certainly did!
It was very hard to leave and return to the "real world" after such a terrific vacation...one of the best in 20+ years of family vacations in the Silver Lake area!
Everyone in my family loved this house! We had plenty of room for everyone. We were right on the lake and we loved being able to sit on the deck/patio and overlook the lake every day. None of us wanted to leave at the end of the week. The house is immaculate and the owner was thoughful enough to provide the makings for S'mores which we used with the firepit one evening. We also loved the boat parade during the 4th of July weekend which was an unexpected treat for everyone. We were 5 minutes from the dunes but far enough away that we could relax without all the traffic and tourist. Overall a great stay. I am actually looking at booking this again for next year. Definitely recommend.
My Family and i enjoy coming to this place year after year.We have stayed several other places before we found this wonderful cottage.Each year we would look for a different place to stay because we had been disappointed with where we had stayed previously, but NOT SO with this cottage. This is the 1st place we have stayed and returned to again and again, with no intentions of looking elsewhere. Its such a nice home, feels like your own while your there, plenty of amenities to take advantage off. Nice and clean, lots of extras.And since we are big time dune-rs, its in a perfect location. Just minutes to get out on the dunes and have fun. But close enough to other places to explore when you want something different to do. The drive to different surrounding areas is beautiful. Of course for those who love water activities, its perfect. For us, we love the view of the water and the sunrise is gorgeous.We've seen lots of ducks, cranes, hummingbirds and swans.And last but not least by any means, the people who own this place are the nicest and most accommodating people you will ever meet. Ive met my share with all the other places we had rented, trust me when i say....You wont be disappointed in the place or with the owners. NICE nice nice!!!!
Very clean. New updates in kitchen. Nice ceramic tile. Looks like new or close to new carpeting. Pictures online were accurate. Some bathroom updates as well-new shower. Toilet is extremely close to sink-almost impossible to sit normally. Owner left instructions regarding tips on operating washer/dryer/lighting, etc.
Overall, a nice experience. Truly enjoyed large deck overlooking lake.
