About Ryan

As a kid I spent many summers enjoying the dunes, lake Michigan's beaches, evenings at the Whippy Dip and roasting marshmallows over a glowing campfire. We would take day trips walking around Pentwater, Ludington and the small towns nearby.

Now as a parent i look forward to building new memories with my family at silver lake and we hope our place allows you to build lasting memories with your family.

Ryan purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Ryan chose Silver Lake

This property is the perfect mix between a secluded quiet cottage and being close enough to walk into town, to Mac Woods or the Whippy Dip.

The private beach has soft sugar white sand that offers the best views of the dunes. Enjoy an evening by the water and cook hamburgers on the grill. A step over the short seawall provides great swimming in sandy Silver Lake. While it's not the best place to swim it does provide peace and quiet from the busy Lake Michigan beaches. We also have a boat slip for rent if you'd like to bring your own boat and enjoy tubing, skiing, or trips across the lake to the sandy beaches of Silver Lake.

The house is cared for by us and helped maintained by a local resident. We live in Grand Rapids so we are close by if you need us but we respect your privacy and trust you know how to enjoy yourselves responsibly.

The most important reason to rent Parasail Place is because we understand what you want in a vacation rental. We ourselves have rented a wide variety of places and have shared your frustrations of not having what you need to enjoy a week away from home. You should not have to worry 'am I forgetting something, do we have towels, what about linens and pillows, spices and utensils. I hope this place has what we need.' We have added everything we could think of, within reason, to add but if we forgot something that is necessary we would be happy to provide it.

Our intentions are for you to pack your bags not pack your house up.

What makes this cottage unique

Room for 2 families without breaking the budget.

Our house can actually accommodate the number of people it sleeps both for dining and relaxing.

The house was designed with kids in mind. We know you want to relax too and having the kids enjoy themselves makes your vacation much more pleasant. Besides the property ammenities (pool, basketball, tennis, shuffle board, and the rec center) we have movies, classic board games, there is a tree house in the backyard, woods nearby for exploring....and best yet, a separate living room for the adults to sit and talk while the kids play games or watch movies.

We also love this house because it has rights to the water and your own private 'marina' along with the private 400 ft beach.This house has the comforts of your home only miles away from the bustle of your city or town.

Wonderful vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Nice location in a private community. Privacy, yet tennis courts/ basketball court just beyond property line. And the pool with slide just beyond that. Walk down to beach. Cottage very clean and comfy. Bunk beds were squeaky but comfy. All comforts of home:) Owner, Ryan, very accommodating and responsive. Highly recommend!

Summer Fun!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very nice, clean, quiet, close to the pool and well stocked. We had fun our first vacation to MI climbing the dunes, fishing, walking and swimming. The atmosphere was laid back and relaxed. Our only trouble was cell service which was really spotty. Our boys enjoyed finding spots where they could catch up with the real world. Ryan was very responsive to our questions. I would highly recommend staying here and enjoying the beauty of Silver Lake.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. It still amazes me that the cellular coverage has not gotten any better. I am going to beef up the internet this fall and offer instructions for wifi calling. I use it at my home in Holland because ATT lacks coverage. The wifi calling works great and you can get texts via wifi too. We hope to see you again next year. Have a great rest of your summer!

Will return again

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The house was cute and kid friendly. We rented the boat and loved anchoring across the lake and spending the day at the dunes. We will definitely be back to this house at silver lake.

A great home with lots to do for every age-awesome

  • 4 of 5

This is a 5 star home and location. Multi-generational family spent a week here for the second year in a row. The owner is very responsive and all the comforts or home are at your fingertips plus great scenery - something for everyone! The pool is so close and the beach just a short walk. Plenty of places for biking and hiking - of course the dunes can entertain all. Can't wait to come back next year.

Very nice house with a great lay out and good location. It's a short walk to the pool and lake.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at Silver Lake. We think this is where we will vacation again next summer. Good (quick) response from owner (Ryan) regarding a question we had.
