About Brian & Lori Aeschliman

Brian and Lori Aeschliman are the owners of this beautiful cabin. Brian is a machinist by trade and an avid builder. We started this cabin project 7 years ago by taking this cabin apart near our home in Ohio and sanding every log and putting it back together again at the Sand Dunes, one of our family's favorite vacation spots. With the help of other dune friends and family we've built this cabin..It has been an adventure and has turned out really awesome, We always have a week that the friends that helped put this up are invited to come and enjoy it with us. There has been a lot of fun and many friendships started up north. The boys love to drive their latest creation that they've made on the dunes Like trophy trucks, dune buggies Jeeps etc. And the girls love to go out to the beach and catch the rays.We feel blessed that we've had the opportunity to work and play together on this project.

Brian & Lori Aeschliman purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Brian & Lori Aeschliman chose Silver Lake

This was the perfect spot for us Since there is a lot of action close to us but yet we can get away from it all in just 1 short mile.

What makes this cabin unique

Seclusion if you want and a lot of action not far away.

Great cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the cabin,.When we travel we come with a lot of people. I love that we can cook a big meal and then sit down and play cards with the kids or head out in the dark to a bonfire to make s'mores!

We traveled in a large R.V. While pulling a trailer for all of our toys for the sand dunes, the only problem was turning around. There are a lot of trees so turning around wasn't an option but for a truck and trailer it would be fine.

Bottom line is we'd love to come up and stay in the cabin again. Thanks Lori and Brian.

Even better than last year!

  • 5 of 5

It's a beautiful, clean, quiet, and relaxing home that we were all glad to make memories in once again. (We had previously visited last summer too.) When we weren't spending time at the home we enjoyed the nearby lakes and taking "adventure walks" through state owned land. Glad to have gone again--and will likely do again next year.

A+ We will be back

  • 5 of 5

We shared this cabin with some friends over Memorial weekend 2016, it's just as pretty in person as it looks online... very nice place... property is secluded with room to park your dune toys. The kids played on the tree swing all weekend, this property is big enough to keep them busy exploring, I never heard "I'm bored" all weekend.. Only possible issue I could see, would be no A/C... It was chilly at night in May... I could see July and August being miserable in the loft.. just my opinion. I hate being hot... Brian and Lori have a great place at an affordable price. We WILL be back. See you next year!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming to the cabin. As for no AC- usually Western Michigan isn't muggy so it has not been a problem keeping the cabin comfortable. We do have fans though.. Usually you need a sweatshirt in the evenings..

Nice Clean secluded Cabin close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our 4 children, and my parents stayed in this great Cabin for our Labor Day weekend. It's close to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes, Craigs Cruisers, Beach, etc- but yet in it's own quiet wooded setting! Very clean and comfortable. Had everything we needed in the kitchen and by the fire pit! Even had Smore's roasters! The kids LOVED the loft area. Would definitely rent again!

Beautiful Cabin! Secluded Location!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was built with great workmanship, love and care. The only reason we give it a 4 star is because of the water. Otherwise we loved it! We enjoyed Mac's Dune Ride, shopping and eating at the Antlers in Pentwater, a trip to Luddington and the County Fair in Heart.

We definitely would recommend this treasured get-away to others. Thanks Lori and God Bless. Ken & Anita

Owner's Response: Thanks Ken and Anita for staying at the cabin! Yes I know the water isn't that great to drink, I'm not sure why all the wells in the area are like that, but that's why we always take bottled water..Hope you had a relaxing stay!
