Do you want to be close to where it's happening, where the action is, but like your privacy too? Then this is the vacation spot for you! The cottage is very clean and quiet, two bedrooms and one bath just a block from Silver Lake in Mears. The cottage is completely furnished, sleeps six, and includes a fully furnished kitchen, refrigerator, central air, satellite, 32' Flat screen HDTV, HD DVD, 100 watt surround sound stereo, X-BOX, INTERNET ACCESS, washer & dryer and of course is children friendly. You’re walking distance to Silver Lake and all the attractions including the famous Silver Lake Sand Dunes ORV Area which overlooks beautiful Lake Michigan. There are go karts, bumper cars, bumper boats, miniature golf, an arcade, wave runners, paddle boats, and pontoon boats, Jeeps, quads, sand rails and more for you to rent, or bring your own. Rentals are all within walking distance. Don't forget there are several golf courses nearby for your enjoyment as well. You have full access to the association pool, play and picnic areas. The property is large, children can safely play and ride bikes because, basically you’re on a cul-de-sac. If you like, bring a fishing pole and fish Silver Lake or in the private canals surrounding the property – front and rear. You can ride bikes to the Sable Point Light House and enjoy a sunset overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan.
The cottage includes 2 boat docks on 2 canals, one on each side of the property, both access Silver Lake, perfect for your personal water craft, a fishing boat or speed boat - 16-19'. The association has its own private boat launch available for you to use and we include a paddle boat for your use; bring life jackets.
Bring your off road vehicles, quads, motorcycles, sand rails, Jeeps, buggies, and experience the Silver Lake Sand Dunes ORV area overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan. Picnic on the beach, swim in Lake Michigan, than go 4 wheeling.
Go tubing, water skiing or just cruise around on Silver Lake. Boat over to the sand dunes, hike up the dunes, sand surf down, sunbathe, picnic, swim, or go for a sunset cruise and watch the sunset behind the dunes. After a dip in Silver Lake, or a little water play, go play in the Silver Lake Sand Dunes ORV area, ride your favorite toy, off road vehicle, sand rails, Jeeps, buggies, motorcycle or machines. Watch the long travels jump over the dunes, watch others try to climb “TEST’ hill in their toys. If you don’t have an ORV go rent a Jeep or quad and try for yourself. If that isn’t enough – go see the nearby Sand Drags . Afterwards, enjoy a private fire, roast marshmallows, or enjoy the naturally shaded Lanai, overlooking the rear canal and boat dock, enjoy a favorite beverage after a full day playing and exploring. There is a lockable fenced area for storing bikes, scooters, and the like.. Saturday to Saturday rentals, sleeps up to 6 persons.
This is a great location to walk or bike to all the local activities - Go-karting, arcade, miniature golf, shops, there is so much to do, time fly’s by. Everything is reasonably priced, so your hard earned dollars go a long way, you get your monies worth. You'll make wonderful memories, we do, all the time.
We enjoy going to the MI State Park, Silver Lake Sand Dunes ORV, riding bikes to the Light House on Lake Michigan, (locals call it the Candle Stick), beaching boats and Sea Doos across Silver Lake and go to the sand dunes, picnicking and climbing the dunes. We enjoy watching all the unique sand rails and toys go by while eating ice cream at the local store.

We loved the cottage! Very nice & clean& great location. We're hoping it's available for our trip next year!
This was our 4th year staying at this cottage. We have found this is the best way to enjoy Silver Lake and the surrounding area. You can't beat a/c, internet, DirecTV, great deck to relax on, clean and comfortable cottage, fire pit, fishing access, use of the association pool, full kitchen, laundry and close proximity to all of the attractions in town like shopping, ice cream, go-karts and the arcade. Just a few minutes from the lighthouse, beaches and dunes and still a quiet and private area to enjoy our family time. We get time for one vacation a year and wouldn't spend it anywhere else!
Cottage was very close to most of action at the center of Silver Lake.
You can walk to small grocery store, tourist shops, amusements, State Park, and the lake.
Very convenient, some noise until quiet time at go cart place down the street.
Very roomy backyard with nice fire pit. Large and peaceful spot.
Kitchen was equipped as advertised. Plenty of dishes, pots, small appliances, utensils. Note, it does not have a dishwasher.
Beds were comfortable. Place was very clean and tidy.
Nice front deck to sit out on. Large 10+ person picnic table with umbrella was a welcome help from the afternoon sun. Good gathering spot.
We enjoyed renting a dune buggy locally and going on the State Property for riding..
One place we would recommend to see is the walking dunes area on the east side of the lake. it reminds us of the Sleeping Bear Dunes.
There is access to the association pool within walking distance of the cottage. Nice large pool with small playground next to it. Open typically, Noon to 5 PM. We went several times to cool off.
Location is within a short car ride to Pentwater, Hart, and Ludington. More choices of restaurants there vs Silver Lake. Recommend the Mexican restaurant in Hart.
One unexpected item was the request to wash all towels, clean bathrooms, and vacuum before departure. Not a big deal, not something routine at other VRBO's we have stayed at.
This was our first stay here. It is in a good location, as it was in walking distance to restaurants, the lake, stores and shops, etc. Plenty of parking for our trailers and vehicles.
Nice backyard for nightly campfires. The house was very clean and comfortable. Two things were disappointing with this rental. 1)The condition of the mattress in the second bedroom was horrible, with lumps and bumps, very thin and disintegrating mattress pad. 2) The fact that we were not supposed to shower the morning of departure because all the towels were to be washed and dried before our 10am check-out. We also found it odd that the owner checked us in and even called when we weren't there right at 3pm. We have rented VRBO homes/condos numerous times over the years and this was a first.
This was our second year in a row staying at this cottage. We returned because the cottage is in the perfect location, very clean and includes everything you could need. There was lots of space for parking our trailer and 3 vehicles. We walked to town for shopping, food and activites. We also enjoyed using the association pool.
With just a few minutes drive, we were at the dunes. In less than a half hour, we were in Ludington and Pentwater. This is really the perfect spot for our family of 4 (two kids under 6) to stay.
This is the second year we have stayed at this property and love it! Perfect size for a family of four with all of the amenities you need. House is clean and well maintained. The canals are great for fishing. The location is wonderful - walking distance to all of the attractions in town, yet off the beaten path enough that I was comfortable letting my kids ride their bikes around the cul-de-sac. Lots of little extras were nice like movies, games, playstation. Internet was a great addition this year!
We enjoyed having the amenities of home while on vacation. We were able to cook on the stove or gas grill. Two bedrooms gave us the extra space we needed so that we could relax together as a family. The dock to keep our jet skis made getting to the lake and dunes very convenient. This property is located close to the center of of all the great tourist activities, especially the ice cream shops!
Michigan State Parks, Lake Michigan, Silver Lake Sand Dunes for ORV us, Hart-Montague bike trail miles of biking trails few miles from the cottage. You can rent Jeeps, Scooters, Quads, Jet Skis, power boats, kayaks, pontoon boats and bikes. All are available within walking distance. Including, go-karts, bumper cars, miniature golf, arcade, bumper boats a ZIP Line and lots lots more.
