Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and couldn't have been happier. The place is in great shape with new upgrades. The kitchen had everything you would need and a great new bbq grill for cooking out. It was very clean and neat. We thought the location was perfect, the view of the lake was awesome and the distance to everything in Traverse City made it easy to get out and do stuff. The owner was very easy to work with and communicated well throughout the process. I would stay here again.

Great house to rent on a beautiful lake.

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week here in late September and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was very well appointed with everything we needed for our stay. It is a very clean and comfortable home. The bedrooms were very large with comfortable mattresses and bedding, as well as large closets. The kitchen was nicely done with new appliances, granite counter tops, a pantry closet, and everything you would need in utensils, pots and pans and supplies. There is a nice large dining table and the deck outside was wonderful. There is even a large room in the basement for gear or recreation, etc. The owner was very nice to deal with and someone was nearby in the neighborhood if we needed help with anything. I highly recommend this property.

Awesome! place

  • 5 of 5

We have family that live in the area, not often do we get to come up there a visit, so checked out this place and figured it's time to come for Halloween and see the grand-children have fun, this place was amazing to rent for that week at first the weather was raining and chilly but the next week was wonderful, didn't get a chance to sit by the water but the porch view's, wonderful!

The owner, was wonderful called and hoped we was enjoying ourselves, wish we could have stayed longer, but would say its was the best place to rent in Traverse City! this home was like home away from home, very clean and very well maintained! I am planning on coming back soon!

Peaceful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

A great place to visit and relax. Location was great on Silver Lake. Quiet and peaceful. My family and I really enjoyed all the comforts of home during our stay. Bedrooms are very clean and spacious. Kitchen has everything you need and very modern appliances. The patio leading to the lake is great and is very pleasant to sit and enjoy the surroundings. We had a gathering that ended up with more people showing up than expected and the house was big enough for all to have a splendid time. Owner was very helpful in making arrangements with us. The only downside for us was the weather turned windy and cooler so we were not able to enjoy the lake and the kayaks provided. Had a great experience and will definitely book again if we come to Traverse City.

The Perfect Lakefront Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 11 year old daughter spent one week in this beautiful and comfortable home. Our first impressions were, "Wow, this is amazing." The house sits right above the lake, with gorgeous new lakeside landscaping and a matching, built-in fire pit. The small beach was perfect for my daughter to enter the water and play. The kayaks provided were one of the highlights of the lake activities. If your family appreciates comfortable, yet up to date living, you'll love this vacation house. We felt at home because we enjoy a laid-back style and the furnishings and updates suited our family perfectly. The location is convenient. It is within easy driving distance to Traverse City, Interlochen, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Moomers, the best ice cream we've ever tasted! The owners of this home are incredibly easy to work with and are genuinely nice people. I appreciated how the owner checked in with us to make sure everything was ok. There is also a caretaker in the neighborhood who we enjoyed talking with. He was always available if we had questions. We even got the BEST restaurant recommendation from him! If you rent this property you are sure to enjoy your stay!

The photos do not do this house justice. It is absolutely beautiful and you'll want for nothing. Everything from kitchen utensil to pots and pans and beach towels are included. Spent a week, summer of 2015, for a girls' week and had a blast. Plenty of room and not far from anything we wanted to do. Owner was great to work with as was the "caretaker". Very informative. The lake was much larger than I had anticipated but not super busy - even on the weekends. You won't go wrong!
