Clean, well maintained and comfortable cottage near sand dunes and both Silver Lake & Lake Michigan!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage owners: Jerry & Diana were awesome and very helpful before and during our 7 night stay. Very clean, cozy cottage, plenty of beds, all the amenities made our stay comfortable. We cooked on the grilled each night and had a fire in the fire pit after fun in the sun at the lakes and a blast at the sand dunes. Walking distance to plenty of activities, shopping, a general store and ice cream shop. We made some great family memories and look forward to returning to Silver Lake.

Holiday Weekend Stay

  • 4 of 5

DJ's cottage was clean and well kept. The owner Diana was very pleasant and easy to deal with. The steps going to the upstairs from the living room are quite a steep angle and may be difficult for young children or older people to navigate. There are also steps from the outside to get to the loft area that are much easier for access. I did a light general cleaning before we left. There were no trash bags to replace the ones from the wastebaskets I emptied. I would not be afraid to rent again.

Great cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay here in early June. The location is great, easy to walk everywhere and you still have a space to come home and have a campfire. Diana, the owner, was very friendly and gave my group some tips on the best places to get firewood/rentals/anything we needed.
