About Debbie Spence

i grew up in the Silver Lake area. My husband and I are retired and live in South Carolina. We use the cottage to spend time with family and rent it in July and August only.

Debbie Spence purchased this house in 2004

Why Debbie Spence chose Mears

We think there is no place more beautiful than sitting on top of a dune and looking out on Silver Lake and Lake Michigan.

Perfect cottage for our family

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean and beautifully updated. It had all the amenities of home! We took advantage of the pool, the beach (private and state park), the hammock and we made a fire almost every night. We enjoyed our ride and walk through the sand dunes and a visit to the lighthouse for sunset. We also traveled up to Pentwater to check out the shops and marina area... it was beautiful! The weather was perfect for our first visit to the area. Debra was a pleasure to work with!

Beautiful, clean, spacious, and everything I could have hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our experience with both the owners and with the cottage itself! Debra has always been so kind and very quick to respond to any questions I had, both before and during our stay.

My family has been coming to Silver Lake since 1970 (long before I was even born) and this was far and away the nicest place I have ever stayed! When we arrived, the cottage was spotless. It's extremely spacious for my family of 5 and decorated beautifully! We found everything we could have ever needed available in the kitchen and throughout the cottage. Having a propane grill available on the deck was great so we could cook out and enjoy the beautiful weather. The beds/pillows were SO comfortable, I wasn't even itching to get home to my own bed by the end of the week! While we had a very mild week, the central air conditioning would have been a HUGE luxury if it were much hotter. I'm used to needing box fans in the windows at night!

The amenities in the Flora-Dale association were so nice! Having the pool available was great on days we didn't want to pack up and head to the dunes. The beach at the lake is large and kept very clean, also a nice option if you don't have means to get to the dunes. The clubhouse was perfect for a couple of our big family dinners (as we had 12 other cottages rented out within the association). The kids, and some of us adults, loved having the ping pong tables and tether ball for another opportunity for entertainment. While we didn't personally use the tennis/basketball courts, it's wonderful that they are there for the more sporty types!

Now that we have stayed here, we couldn't imagine ever staying anywhere else! Thank you Debra and Carl for renting out your beautiful vacation home so that our family could enjoy our week at Silver Lake more than ever before!

Our secret summer home away from home !

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for the past several years. It is perfect for our family ! Kitchen is completely stocked with everything we need and is so easy to cook in and keep clean. New appliances this year ! This home is decorated beautifully. Very serene, with a beachside feel. Huge master suite is new addition that is very comfortable and private.

The open concept living area makes it easy to have quality family time.

Great fire pit , patio and association pool is steps away ! We love this home and our kids love it too.

Beautiful Vacation Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the third wonderful year vacationing at Silver Lake and renting this spectacular cottage ! It is truly our home away from home. The location is perfect. You are in the middle of where ever you want to go. The subdivision heated pool is beautiful. The cottage has everything you could ask for. A relaxing deck to enjoy the cool lake breezes, a grill to cook your favorite food, a fire pit in the spacious yard, and although not always needed, air conditioning just in case. Alot of places don't have A/C and it is a plus ! It is clean, spacious, relaxing, just absolutely perfect ! We love it and will continue to go back for years to come ! Thank you to the owners !
