Relaxing lakeside getaway - perfect for small children

  • 5 of 5

Silver Lake is a beautiful lake. This place is in the perfect location - peaceful lake but only 10 minutes from Traverse City. Great place for young kids - beach toys provided and fishing off the dock! Home is well maintained. Has all the essentials for a great vacation!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at this lovely home! Dave and Ellen were wonderful hosts. The house was clean and had every amenity you could ask for. We have three boys (14,12,11) and they had a blast swimming, fishing, and playing at the small sandy beach. The house is in a great location to explore the local area. We love the wineries, hiking, and just driving around the little towns all up the peninsula.

1st Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great pride in ownership! The owners were very accommodating to our needs with 2 small children and we over packed because the house was fully stocked with everything you could think of. Thank you Ellen and Dave, it was a pleasure!

A getaway with the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most quaint, comfortable lakeside cottage near Traverse (and we've stayed in several). For two years in a row, the owners have been so accommodating if any needs arise, although rare, because everything you need is in the house. The kids asked me to share that it smells really good, there's a great movie selection for bedtime or the occasional rain day, but their all-time favorite is the endless options of water toys and activities! Our older parents came with us as well, and they relaxed so well on the several shaded decks all week long! Thanks again, Rapsons!

Great up north lake, just outside of Traverse City

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Ellen were great, the home was well appointed with plenty of kitchen essentials (pots, pans, soap, sandwich bags, ect) and the location is amazing. The lake is clear and calm, the included kayaks and floats make enjoying it easy. It is a short trip to all of the local attractions, making Sandy Beach Cottage a prime vacation spot. I would highly recommend this listing, especially for families with small kids or a couple just looking to enjoy a little lake life.

Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a great time. It was charming house on a nice lake. Well equipped from washer/dryer to roasting sticks for marshmallows and very clean. Dave and Ellen are great owners and were there if we needed them but also gave us our privacy. Hope to get back there.
