  • Stay here! You won't regret it!

    "The was our 2nd year staying at this lovely cottage and it was another wonderful one!!! Great TC weather topped off our great stay at this wonderful, homy cottage!! PROS: -Extremely clean -Extremely well-stocked everything (all the amenities of home and then some!!) -Great location (seems to be 5 minutes from everything; downtown TC, the mall, etc.) -Situated on a fantastic lake (it's warmer than the bays, very clean! -Nice, newer dock (great spot to fish from) -Ample seating outdoors -Patio area is a great spot to eat lunch/dinner with fantastic views of the lake -The deck has 2 nice bistro sets which are great for eating lunch or enjoying morning coffee -The front room is nice and sunny with GREAT views of the lake (large windows) -Furniture is extremely comfortable -The "cabin" room houses the TV, a SUPER long, comfy couch and a game table -a favorite spot to play late night games (there are many games there for both kids and adults) -The downstairs game room is a nice spot for rainy days (ping pong table, foosball table, gaming system for older kids) -Plenty of recreational amenities (tons of life vests, a paddle boat, 2 kayaks, fishing poles) -The bedrooms are spacious and very inviting -Bunk room for the kids is AWESOME (and there's a small bonus room in the bunk room that is fantastic if you have a baby and will be bringing along a pack n' play) -Beach is sandy and ample for kids to play -Swimming area is shallow enough for kids to swim close by shore -Nice floating dock CONS: -To us, the only real drawback of this house might be the landscaping just on the yard facing the lake. This house is absolutely adorable and, while it does not at all effect the functionality of the house, the clearing out of the property that sits on the water (going up both sides of the hill and around the basement area) would make this property so attractive. This is really the only reason we gave this home a 4 out of 5 stars. I wouldn't even really list the landscaping as a "con", but I figured people would think it was too good to be true if there weren't at least one! If you are a family looking for a wonderful vacation spot, this truly is the place for you. Silver Lake is beautiful and, for us, it's a nice break from the traffic of downtown TC. You're close to it all, but far enough away to have a peaceful vacation!!!! Thank you to the owners for another wonderful stay!"

  • Traverse City condo, close to downtown

    "Condo was in great condition, lots of room for our two families to enjoy for a Comedy Festival weekend. Eric was easy to work with and communicated efficiently. Would definitely stay again! Already thinking of booking for next year."

  • Wonderful little place on the Bay

    "We stayed for a long weekend and had a beautiful time. The house was cute, and beautifully decorated with a fantastic view of the bay. We had a little trouble getting in with the keypad, but Lisa was fantastic and got back to us right away with help. The home is on a busy street, but getting out of the driveway isn't too bad if you wait for the break in traffic when the lights change. The home was very pet friendly, and I think our dogs had just as much fun as we did. It was a bit cold for swimming (mid-march), but the dogs still enjoyed playing on the beach and wading into the water. We all had an incredibly fun and relaxing weekend trip! I would definitely recommend this place, and will not hesitate to stay here again!!"

  • Fantastic! HIGHLY recommend this nature haven.

    "Booking was very easy through VRBO and paypal. Tim was very quick to respond. The driving directions provided by Tim were fantastic….use those. It was fun to drive through the long, winding, tree lined road to the house. I couldn't get the door open….my husband had to do it each time :) The house was spotless. There were some supplies left for us~ pump soap, toilet paper, paper towels, bar soap. We slept in the 2 bigger beds. We used the daybeds to lay on during the day. We only used the shower/bath during the week. The water pressure was good and stayed hot for 3 quick showers in a row…the 4th was iffy. :) We didn't cook while there….but the fridge and microwave worked well. We never turned the tv on. The internet connection worked at all times, except during a thunderstorm. We used the washer a few times during the week ….had to wash the towels we brought from home and some random clothes. it worked well. We used the dryer a little bit more due to drying our wet swimming stuff. We swam off the pier on a few occasions and did end up with the lake itch that Tim informs you about. The kids were 100% w/o any red bumps within 6 hours of getting out of the water. They were just super itchy for those hours. We always got out of the water and washed off in the tub with soap. If they were super itchy, we used benadryl cream. My husband got it the worst and is at home with at least 10 bumps on his legs still. The water was super clean. Only saw fish at night and they were tiny. The windows are temperamental at moments. I learned which ones would fall off of their track when winding back in. I had hubby help push those closed from outside daily. Only a few windows have window treatments. It took me a minute to get used to it at night. The fire pit and patio were perfect at night. We never used the heat or indoor fireplace. We HIGHLY recommend staying here and hope to stay here again in the future. The house was perfect for us. I know your family will love it as much as we did. Family of 5. 3-39 years old 2 dogs. puppy and old guy"
