It was so fun to return to Michigan as I did as a child when visiting family. You have a wonderful little cottage--made to feel homey and so welcoming. Thanks again for opening your cottage.

Great area

  • 4 of 5

For the price, the property met our expectations. The bathroom is in rough shape, but all in all the grounds were great, plenty of activities for kids and the location was perfect.

This is our second time staying at the Silver Lake Summer Haven. We love the location and the amenities that the association offer. If you are looking for an inexpensive week away with the family, this is a great place. The one bedroom has a queen bed and is comfortable. We rented this cottage two years ago when our son was 12 and he and his friend were comfortable on the pull out couch. Now that he is 14 and they are much bigger, it was a bit achy for them. Regardless, they were not short on sleep and loved the pool, beach and basketball court. Cute town with lots of beach shops. Craigs Cruisers is great for the kids too. We ventured out this year and went to Great Hart Brewery for dinner which was great and the beer was good too! We took a growler back and enjoyed some another night. We brought our Jeep and two four wheelers on a trailer pulled by a full size truck. We had plenty of room for parking and for turning the trailer around. The cottage was clean and well equipped. Would definitely stay again!

Charming and spacious

  • 5 of 5

This little gem is perfect. Close to the beach and equally close to the pool and club house. Beautifully kept, wonderful outdoor space and a perfect place to wind down and relax. Recommend to everyone! Except when we are headed back up 😉

Kids had a ton of fun!! They loved the pool access and game room that is exclusive to the Floradale community. Very pleased with our stay! The owners we're also kind enough to mail me an item I accidentally left behind! Highly recommend!

Clean, cozy, great location

  • 3 of 5

Great location-very close to beach and pool was wonderful. Beach was clean with tables and benches-sandy lake bottom and NO weeds! No air but fans kept us cool. View of lake from side porch was nice. Lots of "extras" as far as toilet paper, garbage bags, cleaning supplies. Only complaint would be the amount of foundation ants on porch and some in kitchen. Otherwise, nice cozy cottage.
