About the Owner

Having grown up in nearby Shelby I have loved Silver Lake my whole life. I now live about an hour away but when we had the opportunity to buy our lot we were ecstatic. We built the cottage in 2008 as our family cottage and only rent a few weeks per year to help us offset the costs of ownership. It's a privilage to have a cottage and we love to share it with our guests.

The Surf Shack was everything we needed and more. Very Clean, close to all attractions. The patio was wonderful to sit out eat dinner and relax. Loved the large concreted area as we were traveling with three toddlers two in walkers and they were able to run back and forth and have the best time. We brought a boat along for our vacation and they dock was exactly what we needed we didnt have to pull the boat in and out, silver lake is beautiful day or night!! We will defor sure be back.

My family and i had stayed at the surf shack for a week. It was extremely clean(inside/out), friendly neighbors, kid friendly,and very welcoming. It's just a short walk from all the attractions in town, a short drive to beaches and the dunes. No need to pack your whole house, the surf shack is well stocked with all your needs. It was an amazing experience to stay there and i would recommend this property to every one. An overall relaxing and worry free stay.

From the Owner

With access to Silver Lake from the channel to the quiet setting our place is really unique. We are located about a block from 'downtown' and all the action but sitting around the fire pit at night you feel as though you are 'up north'. We get very little traffic, have wonderful neighbors, and have ample parking.
