About Brian and Kelly Meeuwsen

Family of five that loves the Silver Lake area!

Brian and Kelly Meeuwsen purchased this house in 2014

Why Brian and Kelly Meeuwsen chose Silver Lake

We rented this property in 2013 and loved it so much that when it went for sale we knew it was already perfect for our family.

What makes this house unique

We love the peacefulness of the lake. We often spend our days in the dunes and come back to swim in the lake and enjoy an evening fire on the beach.

Great family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful home for families with young children! My kids swam in the lake, made smores on the fire on the beach, loved the kayaks and paddle boat! Close enough to the dunes and town but still quiet and peaceful. I appreciated the closed in deck so my one year old couldn't get out :) will definitely rent again! Owners were wonderful to work with!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated a "girls weekend" at Summer Sands Landing and had a wonderful time. The weather wasn't as sunny/warm as we would have liked, but there was still plenty to do and we did make it into the water. SSL was very accommodating and a pleasure to rent from. We can not wait to come back!

This is an awesome vacation home. We loved the private beach on a quiet little lake. My daughter enjoyed the fish that were around the dock and the paddle boat. There was a basket of brochures of things to do in the area and everything was fairly close. The house is very spacious inside and has huge deck outside. Loved the fire pit on the beach. Will consider renting again in the future.

Wonderful spot for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first week long vacation as a family of five. We had a great time at the cottage. The living room and kitchen was nice and spacious and the bedrooms worked out great. Our kids are 5, 3 and 1 so the gated deck was a major plus. We spent most days in the dunes and came back every night to swim in the lake and enjoy a campfire. It was nice to be a nice quiet lake. The cottage had EVERY thing we needed...we didn't have to bring much which was so nice! Only thing that would have been nice was a little picnic table outside for the kids. We were definitely pleased by the cleanliness and superb friendliness of the owners. They were very responsive to all our questions beforehand. We look forward to coming back next year for TWO weeks!!! You will not regret staying here!

Peaceful Summer Haven

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun, memorable experience at Lighthouse Landing! The owners were very prompt when getting information to us, thoughtful in products which were stocked in the home, and were a great family to do business with! The cottage is in a great location for those who appreciate privacy and peace & quiet. Our kids enjoyed bike riding in this safe, quiet location. They also got a kick out of fishing off the paddle boat and hand feeding the fish bread from the dock. The swimming area was very clean with a great sandy beach, toys included! Our only issues were from the age of the home / older carpets, as our kids have pretty severe allergies and asthma. The home was not dirty, it was just a little high on the allergen scale for our kids. in addition, They recommended we bring some bottled water due to their water being cloudy. it has been tested as completely safe, but has a cloudy appearance. Also, due to the high iron content in the water, we could not wash any light colored items in the washer. Again, all of this was explained to us in advance, so it was expected. Overall, our experience was very good and I would have rated it as a 4.5 if available! For the price, this property was a great value for our family, and I would recommend it for an enjoyable family vacation.

Owner's Response: Our goal is for our guests to enjoy "Lighthouse Landing". The "cloudy water" issue is due to the new iron filter installed at the cottage in 2012 due to the high iron content in the water. The water is totally safe for drinking but guests are informed they may choose to bring bottled water if they wish. In August of 2012, we were informed by guests that the washer was not working properly-the iron had taken a toll. The following day- a brand new washing machine was installed in the cottage which has greatly improved the laundry situation. We strive to be promptly responsive to issues that arise while guests are staying at the cottage. We are intentional about making improvements to the cottage every year. Several improvements are in the works for the 2013 season. We are pleased five guest families have already booked a week at "Lighthouse Landing" for 2013. Two of those are are returning for their THIRD summer to enjoy the cottage.

Excellent Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible week at the cottage. I was very impressed with how clean the cabin was and well stocked for everything you might need. The beach was great for sandcastles and swimming. The 4 children (ages 1-7) all had a blast catching fish off of the dock and going for the "big ones" from off of the boat. The large deck has two gates on it to prevent the little ones from leaving the deck unattended. The fire pit is right on the beach and was great for nightly bon fires. We visited lighthouses, the dunes, the shops, go-carts, movies, golf and a lot of food establishments. We're looking forward to going back for years to come.
