About Steve Kellar

My wife and I have been sharing our 'slice of heaven' for 32 years.

Steve Kellar purchased this cottage in 1984

Why Steve Kellar chose Northern Michigan

Unlike many lake properties where the cabins are close to one another, Silver Rock will give you the feel of the only cottage on the entire lake. Another cottage cannot be seen from our shore.

What makes this cottage unique

One visit to Silver Rock will give you that true 'up north' feeling. Lake Huron is approx. 3 miles away and there are smaller Trout streams in any direction. The American Indians referred to this area as 'Sacred Land'. It is the ideal location for outdoor lovers and sportsman. Owner lives next door to help out when at all possible....

A Beautiful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely beautiful, perfectly manicured property! The lake is a hidden gem in northern Michigan. We had a great time paddle boating around the lake which was provided by the property owners. We canoed down the river to Lake Huron which was difficult but reaching the lake was quite a visual reward. I would definitely recommend this! We saw 3 bald eagles, one from about 150 feet away! At dark we had a campfire in the fire pit and were amazed by the amount of stars !!! Steve and Vickie are exceptional people and made our stay one we will never forget. We definitely plan on returning, we miss it already!

Can't wait to go back again!

  • 5 of 5

We took our family of 4 and one of our friends up for 4 days/3 nights and even though it was chilly (55* avg) and windy, we still had an amazing time! My 3 and 5 year olds loved all the space to run, especially across the deck and jumping off at the end. :) Vickie and Steve were so very sweet and helpful, as well as a pleasure to hang out with around the fire on our last night! (The only night that the wind died down enough to have a fire.) Being able to hike along Ocqueoc Falls, drive up to the UP for a day, and splash in Lake Huron at Rogers City were all possible because we knew we have a comfy little cottage to come back to each night. We definitely want to go back, and sooner rather than later! Thank you, both, for the relaxing and enjoyable stay!

Little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here. The accommodations are great. Scenery is breathtaking. The hosts are fantastic! I can't say enough about Steve and Vickie. They even shared some of their brook trout that they caught, since we didn't do that great fishing ourselves. We did manage to hook into a steelhead for about 10 seconds, but spit the hook when he came out of the water. Tons of bald eagles around the lake. We did the canoe trip this time. I definitely recommend taking a few hours to paddle down the river and out to Lake Huron. The view at the end is amazing. We will be coming back again. Hopefully this year!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. The fishing for Steelhead is best in mid September thru first ice. Steve

Beautiful and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

Nice cottage, beautiful lake, and friendly owners! This cottage has all the amenities, very well kept, and friendly owner right next door. Great for one or two couples or small family. We took out the row boat and went canoeing down the Ocqueoc. The weather was mostly good, very quiet area, friendly people. Highly recommend this property and would return in a heartbeat!

Return to Serenity

  • 4 of 5

I have been coming to this place since I was less than a year old. This spot has it all from fishing, adventure seekers, hunting, or relaxation. Case in point, the weather was not as favorable as my previous visits, but I found myself meditating at the sounds of nature near the lake as it was an escape from the everyday (Hustle and bustle) I deal with. Highly recommend

Awesome Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the week we spent at Ocqueoc Lake. The cabin was AWESOME!!! They have done an excellent job updating it and there was plenty of room for the two of us and our dog. The cabin is exactly as pictured and was very clean and adequately furnished with everything we needed. There was only one day where we had to stay inside because of the weather. We did not fish but it was so relaxing to sit on the porch or down by the lake and watch bald eagles, sand cranes, ducks and loons on the water and listen to their calls.

There was absolutely no drawback to having the owner’s literally right across the driveway. We were in and out a lot and saw them frequently but they were totally respectful of our privacy. They made us feel right at home and never infringed on our privacy. When time permitted, their hospitably was unmatched. We met some great people who live around the lake too and we all were able to share some good times together and will always have good memories of Ocqueoc Lake. Zoe the dog was a dear; just loved her smile!

This rental definitely rates a giant #1 in our books and we would highly recommend it to anyone who wants that true, up-north experience.
