Our reservation process is a traditional up-north rental process with a bit of modernization. When someone wants more information or wants to make a reservation, we reach out and contact them so we can personally answer questions, and establish a connection with our future guests.

Thank you for your interest in the Maple Grove cottage. It is one of 2 cottages, in an 80 year old family owned resort with one of the best 100 ft of private lake frontage on Silver Lake. The cottages are updated with all amenities. They are just 10 minutes from Traverse City. Silver Lake is a 600 acre spring-fed lake with clear sparkling water, surrounded by pines and hardwoods with islands and peninsulas, great for boating, fishing and swimming. The resort has been in existence since the 1930's when Silver Lake was just a fishing lake with a few resorts and cottages dotting the landscape. Because it was established so long ago, our resort is located on prime flat property with mature trees, set 600 ft. from the road. The 100 ft of sandy beach has a firm sandy bottom, with no stairs or steps. We have owned and managed the cottages since 1989. The cottages have been updated into modern homes as you can see in the photos.
You are looking at the Maple Grove, it is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath 1050 sq. ft home with central air conditioning, WiFi and a gas fireplace. It sleeps up to 4 adults.
Maple Grove has its own picnic table, charcoal grill and campfire pit with wood provided.
We strive to provide a clean and comfortable home for you during your visit to the Traverse City area.
Our own home is located on the property so we are available for sight-seeing advice, restaurant recommendations as well as just being here for our guests.

Join us in the Spring for nature's peace and beauty. Summer visits become a family tradition. Autumn is filled with cool, crisp days in all their color. Numerous golf courses are minutes away. Canoe, kayak or tube trips down the Boardman River- just down the road, or down the Platte River-25 minutes away. Bring your bikes as there are numerous bike trails in the Traverse City area.
You can Google search these activities or get the information when you arrive at the cottage in our resource book
There is so much to do in the Traverse City area. Some examples are: winery tours and tasting rooms, Children’s Museum, Moomers Homemade Ice Cream (voted #1 in U.S.), Pirate’s Cove Adventure Park, the State Theatre (home of the Traverse City Film Festival), The village at Grand Traverse Commons, Dennos Museum, Interlochen Arts and Performance Academy, Music House Museum, Sleeping Bear National Lake Shore Park, Wuerfel Park (home to the minor league baseball team-Beach Bums) as well as all the biking, hiking, canoeing, and kayaking available in our area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: My husband, Tom and I were married in 1979. We moved to Traverse City in 1980 from the city of Detroit. My mother was raised on an local farm. My maternal great grandparents were pioneers to the area. My mother moved away when she was a young adult. I developed my love for the area as a young child as we vacationed every year in Traverse City. Tom and I honeymooned in Traverse City and moved here 9 months later. We raised our 5 children in Traverse City. The photo shows my husband, our 5 children, my uncle as well as myself.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
We discovered and purchased our small resort in 1989. It was a diamond in the rough, but it had a great private sandy beach and was in close to Traverse City. We remodeled the cottages as we raised our 5 children. We worked on the cottages as a family. Over the years, our children have learned many skills and developed a great work ethic as everyone helped over the years.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We take great pride in providing clean/comfortable/updated homes that our guests will call home during their stay. You will be able to relax and enjoy your vacation as we are very available for assistance as we live on site
