Fun time at Silver Lake!
Certainly enjoyed our week at Dune Our Thing! The cottage was very clean and welcoming when we arrived. Kitchen well stocked with dishes and pots and pans - even a crock pot! Although the kitchen and dining area was a bit small, we used the wonderful covered deck that had comfortable seating and tables and a huge propane grill. Also enjoyed “s’mores” at the yard fire pit with seating for 12.
Reclining sofa and love seat in TV area was very comfortable. The two bedrooms and bath on main floor and two bedrooms , bath, game room, and washer & dryer on lower floor worked well for our family. The bedrooms on lower floor were at ground level so the windows made the bedrooms bright and cheery.
Cottage is located in a quiet wooded area - delightful - with a great heated pool and clubhouse nearby. Older grandchildren walked to the pool; Moms, Gma & Gpa drove. Silver Lake, sand dunes, Lake Michigan, and Cherry Point market are all within a few minutes driving time. And better yet, there are at least 4 ice cream shops nearby! Hope to return in the future...
Great vacation near Silver Lake!
We recently stayed at Dune Our Thing and had a wonderful visit. We were 2 families traveling with a total of 5 small children (ages 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8) and the cabin was nearly perfect to accommodate us. The pros of the cabin: there were ample bedrooms and beds for everyone, there were 2 bathrooms, there was an awesome game room in the basement for the kiddos, the living area had plenty of seating for everyone, the kitchen was well-stocked, the covered deck gave us plenty of room for meal time even if it rained, the yard was nice and big for the kids to play, the pool was amazing and we spent a ton of time there! The cons of the cabin: the kitchen was very small and more than 2 people in the kitchen at once was very cramped, we had hoped we would have a view of Silver Lake from the cabin but we did not, and finally, it was a bit of a hike to the pool and Silver Lake. When booking, we were under the impression that it was about 1 block to the pool but it was really more like 2-3 (walk to the end of the street, walk down a path, and then walk through the rest of the resort to get to the pool). While the walk wasn't particularly long, it meant that we couldn't easily run back to the cabin if we needed something or forgot something. Overall, however, the cabin was excellent, clean and well-stocked. It was very near lots of fun things to do and we had a great vacation!
This was our second stay at Dune Our Thing
Perfect get away! We love the peace and quiet, and soo much to do. We brought our family here this time. Very clean and plenty of space for family time. :) Looking forward to next time....
We stayed here for a week and really enjoyed the home and resort. We especially enjoyed the front porch for grilling out and eating our meals as well as the game room downstairs. Owner was great to work with.
Dune Our Thing was PREFECT for our Large family -
We had a wonderful time in your beautiful, comfortable cottage. Everything we need was there, and we felt you really welcomed us and wanted us to have a great vacation... WE DID, and plan to do it again next year. We were at another location on Silver Lake for 44 years, and are wishing we had found this earlier!
Our family had such a great time at Dune our thing. This cottage was perfect for our large family. The place was so clean and had so many things for all to do. Air hockey and fooze ball was a hit. The large covered front porch was so great our whole family could set out on it. We ate all our evening meals there. I have nothing but high praise for this cottage. The pool was warm and inviting. Also being so close to the Dunes could not have been better. Hope our family can come back again.
