Awesome Space & Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience this summer in Traverse City, mainly due to our stay here!! We have four children, including an 8 week old, and the house was well stocked with needed items. It was a life saver not having to bring many things from home. Our 3 boys (ages 3, 9, and 11) had the best time ever on the lake! They thoroughly enjoyed the row boat ride to "turtle cove", kayaks, and paddle boat. We enjoyed making s'mores over the fire pit and watching fireworks over the water. Unfortunately, our vehicles transmission caused us to be stranded on the peninsula. The owners helped us during this time of need by picking us up....all 6 of us!! They went the extra mile indeed! Traverse City has many places to stay, but this tops them all in our experience! They also shared great places to visit and eat in. Suggestions were right on!

Perfect place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting houses up north for the past five years and this one is by far our favorite. It has the perfect balance of peace and quiet while still being close to plenty of things to do. The house is very clean, comfortable and has everything you will need. You really only need to pack your clothes. The beach area was great and the water was nice and warm. Our boys, ages 11 & 13, loved spending all day in the water with the kayaks, paddleboat, & swimming platform. The owners are very nice and super thoughtful. I really can't say enough good things about this house and hopefully we will make it back next summer.

Great home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at a few homes on various lakes up in Traverse City area. This is one of the best. We have three kids and they all loved the paddlboat, kayaks, and especially the floating dock. Home is clean and beach area is great. Ask owners for Brian or Jeffs number to rent one of their pontoon boats for a week. You will not find better prices for pontoon boat for weekly rental. Highly recommend.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cottage for young families. My wife, 2 children, and I had a fantastic time. The cottage was extremely clean and well cared for. It was a big relief to not have to bring a high chair, stroller, and pack and play. This cottage came fully stocked with all of the above. The beach is a very gentle slope into the water with all kinds of toys, so perfect for the kids. Dave and Ellen couldn't have been better host. They were very kind and accommodating. We will be back in the future.

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a super Holiday on Silver Lake in the Sandy Beach Cottage.

The Cottage is a perfect place for a Family get-a-way.

Our two Girls (12 and 10) loved the lake and the paddle Board, raft etc.

The Cottage was spotless and everything we needed was there ( even a garlic press :-)).

The owners made us feel very welcome and helped make our week a fantastic Holiday.

A Perfect Week on Silver Lake

  • 5 of 5

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.
