A Perfect Week on Silver Lake

Review submitted: August 6, 2013   Date of arrival: July 20, 2013

My wife and I and our 2 daughters (ages 3 and 6) stayed here for a week in July, and our experience could not have been better. The house is incredibly clean and had absolutely everything that our family needed for the week. Plenty of towels/linens, fans in every room and window ACs, lots of games and family movies for rainy days, and more beach toys than you could ever use. The beach area is fantastic, with tons of chairs to choose from, a firepit, and nice, clean sand. There's a raft about 50 feet out that our girls loved jumping off of and the lake has a hard, sandy bottom with some weeds but no muck.

The location is great, as you're only a short drive from downtown Traverse City and you're only about a half mile from Wuerfel Park where the Traverse City Beach Bums play.

The owners live next door and struck the perfect balance between being there if we needed anything and letting us have our family time. They were incredibly gracious and kind, and made us feel like family, not just renters.

We've been renting summer houses for several years now--trying out different cities and different lakes to see what we like. For the first time we found a place that we would be eager to return to in the future.

Great family spot!

Review submitted: June 24, 2013   Date of arrival: June 1, 2013

My husband and I, our two young children and my parents stayed in this cottage for our first trip to the Traverse City area. I thought it was a wonderful home to stay in for the week - very clean with everything provided that you would need - we packed way too much! Silver Lake was beautiful and we really enjoyed the use of the boats. The beach area was perfect for our kids and if the weather had been a bit warmer I'm not sure how much we ever would have left - they'd have played in the sand and water all day. It was a bit cool for our week though, so we did quite a bit of sightseeing - what a beautiful area! Our daugther (5) loved the lighthouses and the adults all enjoyed the wineries. Dave and Ellen were terrific hosts and gave us several wonderful suggestions for places to visit and local restaurants that worked out great. The kids loved the ice cream at Moomers! I would definitely recommend their cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation, with all the comforts of home.

Great Vacation!

Review submitted: August 19, 2011   Date of arrival: July 31, 2011

This is the second summer in a row for us at this property and we have been very happy with it both times. It is very clean, and looks just as it shows in the pictures. The beach is nice and sandy. Everything is well-equipped, both inside the house and out. We have 3 young children (5 and under) and this is a great propety for a family. Dave and Ellen are wonderful owners and very pleasant "neighbors" for the week. The drive to downtown Traverse City is very conevenient, and we also enjoy the quick trip over to Sleeping Bear Dunes. Overall, we think this is a great place to stay and have really enjoyed our past 2 summers there.
