Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Silver Lake Escape was a perfect location for our family getaway! The house was beautiful, clean and spacious. When the weather cooperated, my kids couldn't get enough of the kayaks, paddleboats and splashing around in the lake. On the days when it was cool and drizzly, it was great having access to the fire pit in the evening to warm up (and enjoy s'mores!). The property is in a great location - close to Traverse City for delicious dining options and just 30 minutes from the Dunes. Thank you Michelle and Randy for the wonderful Escape (and for letting our little dog join us)! We plan to return on our next trip to Traverse City!

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 2 young children, dog, and I stayed at the Silver Lake Escape for a week and it was everything we hoped for. Randy and Michelle were responsive to everything we asked for. We rented the boat for the full week and enjoyed every minute of it. Though there were plenty of restaurant options a short drive away, we enjoyed cooking in and eating dinner on the deck. This was our first time to the area and we are now recommending it to all of our friends and family.

The location is great as it is very close to town but also on a beautiful lake. The lake never seemed busy and we could anchor and jump in at any time of the day. My 2 year old especially loved fishing because he caught one every time he threw his line in! We also went to the dunes which was only 30 minutes from the house.

I would recommend this house to anyone since it was clean, in a great location, and had great owners that care about your stay. If you are thinking about a trip to Traverse City definitely stay at this house!

A Great Place to RELAX!

  • 5 of 5

My family, wife, two sons, one daughter-in-law and "Granddaughter" plus adopted, son and his wife and their son enjoyed every minute of our "Escape" adventure. The weather was ok, home was more than adequate plus the availability of the kayaks and pontoon boat made it an awesome week. Very convenient to Traverse City for any activity there is going on. Anyone will enjoy there time spent in

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for providing such a great retreat home, We enjoyed great weather, beautiful surroundings and use of the boat to boot! We have been coming to the Traverse City area for many years and stayed on many of the lakes but have never felt as welcome as here. Lots of room for our whole family and we put the grill and fire pit to good use. And the dogs loved the lake as did our 3 year old granddaughter. Thanks again for a great week.

Relaxing getaway to the lake.

  • 5 of 5

The Escape lake house was a perfect getaway for my wife and I (and two rambunctious dogs). Randy and Michelle were incredibly hospitable, giving us a ton of great restaurant suggestions, bringing over a new propane tank for us, and were available whenever we had questions. The deck was great for relaxing and grilling out at night. We took the dogs out on the lake with the paddle boat and had a blast fishing off the dock. We did experience some noise from the next door neighbors who were doing some renovations but that wasn't a big issue for us. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to another trip up to the Escape.
