We wanted tons of snow in the winter time and we got it all. We wanted a quite place next to water and forests and we got it all. Nobody bothered us during our stay. We will come back again.

Beautiful home, great location, friendly and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautifully situated on Silver Lake, very close to all of the fun of Traverse City. The house itself is clean and well-maintained. The landscaping is beautiful, with the waterside fire pit being a particularly great feature. Rich, the owner, was extremely helpful and forthcoming with information and checking in to make sure that everything was going well. Our group of five had plenty of room and appreciated all of the modern features of the home, from the lovely kitchen to the clean and well-maintained bathrooms. I would certainly recommend this home to anyone with a similarly-sized group.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and couldn't have been happier. The place is in great shape with new upgrades. The kitchen had everything you would need and a great new bbq grill for cooking out. It was very clean and neat. We thought the location was perfect, the view of the lake was awesome and the distance to everything in Traverse City made it easy to get out and do stuff. The owner was very easy to work with and communicated well throughout the process. I would stay here again.

Great house to rent on a beautiful lake.

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week here in late September and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was very well appointed with everything we needed for our stay. It is a very clean and comfortable home. The bedrooms were very large with comfortable mattresses and bedding, as well as large closets. The kitchen was nicely done with new appliances, granite counter tops, a pantry closet, and everything you would need in utensils, pots and pans and supplies. There is a nice large dining table and the deck outside was wonderful. There is even a large room in the basement for gear or recreation, etc. The owner was very nice to deal with and someone was nearby in the neighborhood if we needed help with anything. I highly recommend this property.

Awesome! place

  • 5 of 5

We have family that live in the area, not often do we get to come up there a visit, so checked out this place and figured it's time to come for Halloween and see the grand-children have fun, this place was amazing to rent for that week at first the weather was raining and chilly but the next week was wonderful, didn't get a chance to sit by the water but the porch view's, wonderful!

The owner, was wonderful called and hoped we was enjoying ourselves, wish we could have stayed longer, but would say its was the best place to rent in Traverse City! this home was like home away from home, very clean and very well maintained! I am planning on coming back soon!
