Property Details

Updated: Apr 19, 2015
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 16 Sleeps

Available year round... call for off season pricing. Cozy Cottage is a perfect place to get away anytime of the year!

Let us pamper you in our vacation home!

Located in the popular Floradale Association, this 2-story, 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home is well suited for single family or multi-family use. A loft area upstairs is a unique feature that offers another place in the cottage where people can sit and talk, play games, watch tv, etc.

Cozy Cottage is located in one of the most private areas in Floradale - woods in the backyard, 2 vacant lots on one side and one vacant lot on the other side. There is plenty of parking available for cars, trailers, dune vehicles, etc. Behind the woods is an easily accessible 2-track seasonal road. Wonderful for a relaxing walk.

While the summer months are especially beautiful and full of activity, Cozy Cottage is available for rent year round. Consider spending your off-season vacation enjoying the spectacular fall colors, skiing, snowmobiling, or simply relaxing by the fireplace with a great book.

go-carts, slick track, zipline, bumper boats, arcade), a bakery, gift shops,

restaurants, the Park Store (small grocery store that also sells firewood), a

gas station (also various supplies and some groceries) and Mac Woods Dune


* many rental options available: watercraft, dune vehicles, bikes, mopeds, etc.

Go a little further away and find fresh fruit/veg stands and public access to the dunes where you can climb the dunes or sit and watch the dune buggies navigate the sandy hills. From the top of the dunes you will have a breathtaking view of Silver Lake and Lake Michigan at the same time. Sunsets from there are absolutely spectacular!!

Nearby spots within 15 - 20 min travel by car include:

Access points to the beautiful 25mi long Hart - Montague paved bike trail, Pentwater Lake and its charming downtown, Hart, Shelby, Stony Lake, golfing, horseback riding and the Silver Lake Sand Dragway.

20 - 45 min by car gets you to:

Muskegon (lots of shopping!), Ludington, and Michigan Adventure Amusement and Water Park.

Silver Lake is a great lake for kids. It has a sandy bottom and stays shallow for quite a ways on the Floradale Assoc. beach side of the lake. On the dunes side, the bottom drops off sharply which allows for easy access by boat and great swimming right next to the shore.

Silver Lake water conditions can range from completely still to white caps. This allows for many activities: fishing, sailing, boating, skiing, windsurfing, swimming, tubing, etc...

Please, no smoking in the cottage on on the porches.

Please, no pets without prior written permission.

Our family vacation in Silver Lake was wonderful!!!! The cozy cottage was a perfect pick!!!! It was CLEAN!!!!!! All amenities you could ever dream of and close to all the fun downtown activities and dunes.. In a quiet area of flora-dale..very well manicured front yard and a cool seasonal road that runs behind the cottage. We had 14 people with us and veryone had plenty of room. We are already planning our trip for next year :)

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Myself and 16 of my friends, stayed at the cozy cottage for two nights in the begining of this month. Every one of us had such a lovely stay there. The house was beautifully decorated and there were so many activities provided for us to do. It was honestly one of the best weekends I've had out of town, and all seventeen of us were sad to leave. There was a nice beach view walking distance to the house, and the dunes with a lighthouse about five minutes away, which we also really enjoyed. I suggest this house to all ages and any group because I feel that everyone should have the same experience myself and my friends had at the cozy cottage. :)
