About Sharon Ladd

Sharon and I purchased the cottage beside this rental in 1990. We have been there every since. We are old duners and can assist when broke down or when advice is required on where to eat, play, etc.

Our goal is to exceed your expectations in every way.

Please contact us anytime if you would like a tour.

Sharon Ladd purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Sharon Ladd chose Silver Lake

Simply one of the best views around with an excellent beach for children. Plenty of parking for dune toys, boats, etc.

Cleanliness, attention to detail. Our goal is to be the best rental in the area.

What makes this cottage unique

Plenty of parking across the street on vacant lot we own.

Our beach is very sandy and shallow. Adding a water volley ball court in 2016.

4 guys on bikes loved this place!!

  • 5 of 5

We are 4 guys riding motorcycles and booked this as a "non-bike event vacation". We wanted to get away and do more than bike stuff everyday and this was the place for that. We rode up from SW Ohio and loved the house on the lake as soon as we got here. 3 of us had not fished much in years and we ended up doing that more than anything. We stayed here Sat-Tues and then took the high speed ferry to Milwaukee for 2 days then back here for the last night. Ken, Sharon, Charity and Chad could not have been better hosts!! They actually became friends and we WILL be back. There is not a single negative thing we experienced. It was a very relaxing get away and I know we will be returning! If you want a great place on the lake this is it!!

Ray, Greg, Jim and Kent.

Right on water

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was clean- had everything you need in the kitchen. Ken was very helpful We were there during the off season but this cottage would be a great place to stay after riding the dunes or walking ... close to town but extremely quiet area.

Wonderful week of relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the Upper Silver Lake cottage. We had 9 of us there and it was never cramped. Everything was so clean and spacious for our family. With 3 grand kids it can get overwhelming, but it was so relaxing and the water was perfect for our boat. We spend everyday in the water and on the dock. Nice firepit for at night and very clean property. They had everything we needed in the cottage and more!!

Great property, in the perfect location. Not too far from town but far enough that it was so quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Ken and Sharon were great, the property was very nice in an excellent location. After riding the dunes all day it was nice to come back and have nice and quiet area to relax and the house was outfitted with all we needed for a great stay. Family had a great time and we will be back.

July 2016: Very nice place; well maintained & stocked; great owners. Our family (2 sons & daughters-in-law & toddler grandson) enjoyed our week. Plenty of space for all of us!

Disappointed with Open Hearth restaurant but the burgers at Brown Bear were fantastic!
