Property description

The property is located on a quiet drive, secluded from noisy roads and traffic. Traverse City's Silver Lake with crystal blue water is an all sports, low traffic lake. This spring fed lake makes it perfect for swimming, boating, and fishing. The cottage's sandy beach is just a step across Lake Drive on the lake's east side, which offers great sunsets making it perfect for a day of swimming, beach fun, and evening sunset marshmallow roasting. It also has a second beach in a park setting with swim raft. The nearby boat launch makes it easy to bring along your own personal watercraft.

Silver Lake Recreation Area

This park is located on North End of Lake Drive and measures about 84 acres in area. Amenities at the park include three picnic pavilions, restrooms, a baseball field, tennis courts, paved and unpaved walking trails, a sledding hill, and plenty of open space for playing catch or tossing a Frisbee.
