Beautiful Home In A Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes. Plenty of space for 6 with room to spare. The home was well equipped with everything we needed. Very nicely decorated and really clean. We had a family shuffleboard contest followed by a dip in the heated pool. It was a short walk to the lake (Silver Lake). We made meals at the house and had plenty of everything for cooking and serving. If we want to hit the dunes again we hope Cool Silver Lake Getaway #1 is available.

Perfect for family vacation

  • 4 of 5

House and surrounding Flora Dale community very comfortable, quiet and well maintained.

We needed to clean pac n play before we used. Otherwise, the house was very clean. Beds were comfortable and appreciated having linens and plenty of towels.

Large Kitchen and dining area perfect for meal prep. Could use couple more cutting boards.

Owners should consider updating one of the sofas in living room as cushions are sagging.

Overall owners very attentive and responded quickly to fix minor problem in bathroom.

Nice weather allowed us to use the heated pool with our two grandbabies. Lots of space and furniture around the pool.

Silver Lake area is perfect for family activities. We took advantage of the bicycle trails, beaches, parks, dunes, dairy tour, farm markets etc. Everything is a short drive from this property.

Great place for a family vacation. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thanks much for taking time to write a review! We're very pleased that you enjoyed the cottage along with many of the nice amenities the Association and Silver Lake area have to offer! Sorry about the dirty pac-n-play! It's our fault for not unfolding it after the last guest to make sure it was left clean! Also, sorry about the sofa bed! We couldn't get the mechanism back into the sofa after the previous renters. We only had a 4-hour window of opportunity between renters to remedy the situation, so we removed the mattress and placed several pillows under the sofa cushions...hoping that would be a temporary "fix". Unfortunately, it didn't work as well as we had hoped, and we apologize. Thankfully, there were still 2 other sofa beds available, so it shouldn't have compromised sleeping arrangements. We were happy to be able to replace the bath tub water lever. Thanks for bringing it to our attention and allowing the plumber to access the cottage during your stay! We appreciate your choosing our cottage for your family vacation, and we certainly hope you return for future visits! Best wishes always!

Great home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Getaway #1. The house is perfect for our family, very spacious and clean. Not a far walk to the pool and clubhouse. It's very quiet and peaceful, we even saw a deer in the front lawn! We will definitely stay again and again!

Great Property = Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week-long stay at Cool Silver Lake Getaway #1! The location was perfect for our group (4 adults, 3 kids) and was very comfortable for a "home away from home". Since food can get expensive around town, we loved having a fully-stocked kitchen to prepare meals and snacks. Enjoyed having a heated pool to swim in when we had a couple cool weather days. Will definitely return if we get the chance! :)
