A great place to spend a week with grandkids

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week with our two children and their children--our four grandsons--ages 1 to 15--and had a great time, celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. There was plenty to see and do in the area, and the cottage was well-stocked with everything you could need, although we did have to buy our own toilet paper. The absence of a bathroom on the lower level, which had most of the beds, was a modest inconvenience, but we adapted quite well, using the two bathrooms on the main level. In total, there were 10 of us, and we can confidently recommend it highly to others.

Great family place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved getting together at this cottage for our family reunion. There is so much to do in the area including the dunes, riding bikes, rent a scooter, swimming, and fishing. There was plenty of sleeping options for our family including bunk beds for the kids. Thanks for sharing your family's cottage with us for the week. We hope we can come again!

A Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for the family that wants to be together, but still needs space! The four bedrooms and multiple levels (inside and out) gives just the right amount of together without being overwhelming! The canal front was perfect for swimming and floating for all ages! The kitchen was fully equipped and the bathrooms were more than adequate. You are 5 minutes from Silver Lake and the dunes. The town is full of things to do and my kids favorite - ice cream shops! I would definitely recommend this!!!
