Experience relaxation at Memory Lane and Hope's Place on beautiful Silver Lake!

Summer of 2017 is starting to fill up....make your reservation soon! There are two cottages on this beautiful lake front property with 100' of frontage: Memory Lane sleeps up to 10 people, so join with another family and begin to build some wonderful memories. Hope's Place is a quaint cottage filled with open rafter character and sleeps 6 people. You can book just one, or both. Generally, rentals are from Friday to Friday, but feel free to check other dates, and we will do what we can to make it work for you.

There are so many activities you can do such as hiking over the dunes to Lake Michigan, biking on the Hart-Montague Bike Trail (22 miles), swimming, kayaking, boating, fishing, golfing, playing with your dune vehicle in the sand, visiting beautiful Pentwater, take a tour of the Little Sable Lighthouse (only a couple of miles away), tubing down the river from Stony Lake out to Lake Michigan.

Mac Wood Dune Rides is within walking distance if you would like to take a ride in the dunes.

The activities are almost endless...but there is also the quiet of just sitting by the water with a good book and soak up the sun. Silver Lake is ideal for families with smaller children to play in because of the beautiful soft sand, and it stays shallow for a long distance.

There is a dock for you to moor your boat to, if you choose to bring one along. We also have a paddle boat and 4 kayaks and 2 paddle boards available for your use. These are shared with both cottages and our family, so times may have to be worked out.

Please note that the calendar reflects Memory Lane reservations only, so if you are interested in Hope's Place, please email about the dates you are interested in.

If you have any questions about reservations of either Memory Lane or Hope's Place, please contact me and I will get back to you right away.

About the Owner

Our family has had a cottage at Silver Lake for 16 years, and have loved every minute! We understand the importance of building family memories. The children and grandchildren grow up so quickly, and the time goes by so fast...we see the importance of spending time together as a family.

Fantastic place to stay :)

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Silver lake.. The property is exactly as shown in the pictures.. View of the lake and the sand dunes is just beautiful.. Paddle boat and kayak was super fun too. Eileen is a great host.. She was very helpful and always available to answer our questions..

It would be great if the patio/porch area is covered ( has a shade).. and if we could have a shower/water tap outside. It will be helpful when you come back from the beach and don't want to make the place wet and dirty with sand.

Awesome views, and owners thought of everything

  • 5 of 5

"Memory Lane" is RIGHT on the water, so when you sit on the deck you can watch everything on the lake.

The interior is updated and modern. There is a big screen TV with basic cable, and DVD player if you want to watch movies. The owners are really organized and give you a checklist of how to get there, and where to put everything -- trash, used linen etc. The kitchen is fully stocked. They also have kayaks if you want to adventure out on the lake (suggestion: way to the west behind a willow tree in the corner of the lake is a stream that leads out to Lake Michigan and is fun to explore).

Fantastic getaway cabin as always!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin for the Silver Lake area! The view is spectacular. The cabin sleeps 10 comfortably and is very close to the dunes and the downtown area. This was our second time staying and definitely won't be the last! Thanks Eileen and Phil!

Everything was perfect for our stay. The owners have thought of everything you just need to bring yourself. The house was very clean and a great size for our group. The view is awesome also. I would highly recommend staying here!

There should be an extra star (sixth) for Memory Lane. Our family has been vacationing in Silver Lake for 45 years. Countless rentals. This one ranks at the very top of the list. Very clean, stocked with everything you need and more, owners very accommodating & friendly and quiet end of the lake. Not only will we recommend Memory Lane to friends and family - we will be back next year.
