Please note! We cannot rent less than 30 days due to our township banning short term rentals despite generations of renting lake front cottages on Silver Lake. You would sign and pay for a 30 day rental agreement/stay, but that doesn't mean you need to stay for 30 days. The cottage is yours to come and go as you please for a month. Perfect for folks in Michigan. When we rented by the week, it was $2800-$3000/week, so you get a great deal if the circumstances work for you.
This large home was designed for your comfort while you visit Northern MI. Pay for 2 weeks and you can have the other 2 weeks for free! Stay the whole month, or come for multiple long weekends, or mid- week stays during "your month". Why are we doing this promotion? Our township has banned all rentals less than 30 days. We know that most people cannot take a whole month off to vacation, so does the township. But one or two families can do a 2 week vacation as well as long weekends during the month. A definite "Our loss, your gain" situation.
