About the Property

3 bdrm, 2 bath, fireplace, central air, WiFi, 10 minutes to TC

Maple Grove Cottage is one of 2 cottages, in our small family owned resort with the best 100 ft of private lake frontage on Silver Lake. The cottages are updated with all amenities (Wi-Fi, central air conditioning, cable, flat screen TVs in living room and both bedrooms, fireplace, central heat, fully equipped kitchen) We are located equally between Traverse City and Interlochen – 10 minutes in either direction. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore is 25 minutes away.
Silver Lake is a 600 acre spring-fed lake with clear sparkling water, surrounded by pine and hardwood tress with islands and peninsulas, great for boating, fishing and swimming. The resort has been in existence since the 1930's when Silver Lake just had a few resorts and family cottages dotting the landscape. Our resort is on prime flat lake front 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. There is a large backyard for yard games. We have owned and managed the cottages since 1989 and take great pride in keeping them in tip-top condition. We strive to provide a peaceful and enjoyable experience for our guests.
These cottages are 2 of just 3 cottages approved by the township to operate legally as vacation cottage rentals.
There are 2 docks, and a swimming raft. The row boat, 2 paddle boards and 2 kayaks are shared by our guests at no extra charge. Picnic tables, charcoal grills, hammocks and individual campfire pits with wood provided.
PLEASE NOTE: Click the "Send a Message" icon found on the right side of screen in order to book/ask questions directly with me. You can also email me directly: tbrady294atcharter.net - use the “at” symbol vs. the word “at”. I answer all inquiries sent during 6 AM-10PM (EST) within the hour. If sent during the night, I will respond first thing in the morning.
Our own home is located on the property so we are available for sight-seeing advice, restaurant recommendations. We have maps of nearby bike, walking trails, winery/brewery brochures and places only the locals know where to go and see.
The other cottage located in our little resort, is property number 162920.
Please note that in the spring and fall, we limit the number of guests to a maximum of 4 as this is our quiet season.

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 there 9 months later. We raised our 5 children in Traverse City.

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
