Great place for family to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay for our family of 6 adults. Very clean and David and Ellen were great host. They had everything available to make our stay enjoyable. We especially enjoyed being able to walk out the back door and kayak around the lake. Also the large grill and all the kichen supplies that were available that made cooking nice meals very easy.

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.

This property is located just 4 miles from the shopping and fun that Traverse City has to offer. Great location to take in the National Cherry Festival or Traverse City Film Festival. Interlochen Center for the Arts is just 10 minutes away. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Park is 30 minutes away. Walk to see our baseball team, the Traverse City Beach Bums, play a fun game of minor league baseball.
