Charming get-away on peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We loved this charming, cozy home away from home! They had you covered with everything you'd need for a fun day by the water with kayaks, paddle boat, sand toys, grills and fire pits. Then to a fun selection of dvds, games and a fantastic list of maps and local recommendations on things to do in the area. The owners thought of everything to make this stay a true vacation. We loved that they thought of the little things, such as a fully supplied kitchen, coffee bean grinder and a cozy place to sit in every area.

The owners were so kind yet professional to work with.. we felt they truly went over the top to ensure we had all of the information we'd need for a great stay! The cottage was adorable with beautiful flowers, herb garden, great deck with fabulous views.

We also loved that the cottage was on a little channel off the lake, which was great for kids and the shallow water/beach area was perfect and easy access to the big lake!

Thanks again for a wonderful stay.. we hope to be back!

Family Vacation 2016 Silver Lake

  • 5 of 5

This lake front cottage was absolutely perfect for our family of 4. Modern, clean, well equipped and close to many things to do.

The deck /sand area at the waters edge was so nice. Paddle boat and kayaks kept our family busy in between our site seeing. The sand dunes are 4 minutes away, Lake Michigan beach access is 7-8 minutes away from the cottage. Jennifer is very easy to work with and very knowledgeable. She was our guide in helping us make this a top notch vacation. . Everything she told us that we tried ended up exceeding our expectations. For a nice , relaxing place to Stay, I highly recommend this cottage.

What a wonderful stay at

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Upper Silver Lake, the cottage, and the area. The people of Silver Lake are very friendly, and the lake right outside of the patio gave the cottage an especially charming quality. The cottage had all we needed and more. It was very clean and actually looked brand new to us. We were really happy that we booked this cottage especially.My husband was really impressed and it's hard to impress him- he's a neat freak. There were 3 of us adults and 1 toddler, and it was plenty of space for us. If you think you like the pictures, you'really gonna love the real thing! Jennifer and Randy, the owners, we're really prompt from beginning to end about answering all of our questions. We rented a boat at Parrots, and had plenty of fun swimming in the lake, grilling, and visiting the Sable Point Lighthouse, and traveling the dunes as well as eating out. We would definitely be coming back! It's a little hidden treasure!

Lake Michigan, Silver lake State Park
Car: recommended

Silver Lake is fun for the whole family. This area includes both dune country and acres of mature forest. The dune ridges and valleys are mostly windblown sand and lack trees, scrub brush and dune grass. The dune area is sometimes compared to a desert. Silver Lake State Park contains more than four miles of Lake Michigan shoreline and boasts a large sandy beach. Silver Lake contains many activities including go carts, mini golf, ATV rental for dune driving, dune ride companies, ice cream shops, novelty shops, etc. A short 15 minute drive away is Pentwater with a downtown shopping district with unique shops and restaurants. There is something for everyone! Or if you prefer to stay put and not leave the cottage you have your own sandy beach area, all sports lake, and an island to explore!
