Traverse City cottage description

This property is located on a quiet drive, secluded from noisy roads and traffic. Traverse City's Silver Lake is an all sports lake perfect for swimming, boating, and fishing. Our 25 ft. of sandy, private beach and dock are just steps across Lake Drive. Perfect place for swimming, beach fun, bonfires, and you can bring your own personal watercraft and keep right onsite at the dock.
Our big, private yard is great for lawn games, grilling out, and just relaxing.
Only six miles to downtown Traverse City for restaurants, shopping, beaches, etc.

The Silver Lake Recreation Area is located on the 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, and plenty of open space for playing catch or tossing a Frisbee.
