There are go karts, bumper cars, bumper boats, miniature golf, an arcade, wave runners, paddle boats, and pontoon boats, Jeeps, quads, sand rails and more for you to rent, or bring your own. Rentals are all within walking distance. Don't forget there are several golf courses nearby for your enjoyment as well. You have full access to the association pool, play and picnic areas. The property is large, children can safely play and ride bikes because, basically you’re on a cul-de-sac. If you like, bring a fishing pole and fish Silver Lake or in the private canals surrounding the property – front and rear. You can ride bikes to the Sable Point Light House and enjoy a sunset overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan.
The cottage includes 2 boat docks on 2 canals, one on each side of the property, both access Silver Lake, perfect for your personal water craft, a fishing boat or speed boat - 16-19'. The association has its own private boat launch available for you to use and we include a paddle boat for your use; bring life jackets.
Bring your off road vehicles, quads, motorcycles, sand rails, Jeeps, buggies, and experience the Silver Lake Sand Dunes ORV area overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan. Picnic on the beach, swim in Lake Michigan, than go 4 wheeling.
Go tubing, water skiing or just cruise around on Silver Lake. Boat over to the Sand Dunes, hike up the dunes, sand surf down, sunbathe, picnic, swim, or go for a sunset cruise and watch the sunset behind the dunes. After a dip in Silver Lake, or a little water play, go play in the Silver Lake Sand Dunes ORV area, ride your favorite toy, off road vehicle, sand rails, Jeeps, buggies or machines. Watch the sand rails fly over the dunes, watch others try to climb “TEST’ hill in their toys. If you don’t have an ORV go rent a Jeep and try for yourself. If that isn’t enough – go see the nearby Sand Drags races. Afterwards, enjoy a private fire, roast marshmallows, or enjoy the naturally shaded Lanai, overlooking the rear canal and boat dock, enjoy a favorite beverage after a full day playing and exploring. There is a lockable fenced area for storing bikes, scooters, and the like – bring a lock. Saturday to Saturday rentals, sleeps up to 6 persons.
Bring a fishing pole, buy a few worms at the general store down the street, and I guarantee you will catch a fish in the canals. (Everyone catches fish, in fact they usually catch them in 5 minutes or less - your luck may vary.)...moreless
