Property description

Before you continue understand this home is on Upper Silver Lake..Not Thee Silver Lake. It is right next to it and is a private less used body of water. Secondly this lake has a sea wall all the way around it that is elevated about 2' above the water line. So there is no gradual slope into the water. If you have small children you should think about it. We raised our children there and never had a problem with anyone falling in the water but it must be considered. However there is a gradual slope about 200' away at an out lot that property owners off the lake use. We have a 40' dock, and steps into the clear water and a sandy bottom. The house comes with a four person paddle boat that could be used for fishing and a two person kayak. Some of the best fishing on the lake is right in front of our cottage. This beautiful waterfront cottage offers three bedrooms (2 on the main floor and 1 in the lower level) and two bathrooms (1 main floor, 1 on the lower level. The kitchen has been recently remodeled and boasts granite counter tops, a side-by- side refrigerator/freezer, stove, and a dishwasher. The front bedroom sleeps three with a twin upper bunk and a full lower bunk. It offers a built in closet and dresser as well as a free-standing dresser. The waterfront bedroom includes a queen-size bed, built in closets and a free standing dresser. The lower level bedroom has a queen size bed and built in closet. The main level bathroom includes a shower tub. The lower bathroom has a walk-in shower. The downstairs has a beautifully decorated living area with a couch and love seat. The main level has a large wrap leather couch and is nicely decorated. A newer washer/ dryer is located in the downstairs. Upper Silver Lake is visible through the wall of windows on the main level. The lake is just a few steps from the balcony. The neighbors are awesome and helpful. Notice: There is a strict rule on the entire lake that all obey and all guests must adhere to. There is absolutely no high speed boating (meaning no wake or less) between the hours of 7:30 pm until 11:00am!! This is a deal breaker, if you don't agree to abide by this then you cannot put your boat in. We do not want to rent to big groups of young people with monster trucks. We are looking for families who will fit into the neighborhood and not upset the great neighbors we have.

Our get-away cottage is located within 1 mile of the Silver Lake sand dune entrance and Silver Lake shopping and activities like Craig's Cruisers. It is close to many golf courses and horseback riding, a petting zoo and farm market, an ice cream parlor, and canoeing activities. Lake Michigan, the Little Sable Lighthouse, and the quaint village of Pentwater are just a short drive away. This cottage offers 150' of Upper Silver Lake frontage and a fire pit for nightly campfires. It has a fabulous southern exposure with full sun all day and a view of the lake and a shallow beach. Fishing is good as the lake is stocked. A 40' dock is included.

Year Purchased: 1990

Why the Owner Chose Mears, MI, USA:
We knew this was the property for our family the minute we set eyes on it. It wasn't even up for sale! We approached the owner and struck a deal. Our kids grew up in this cottage. It holds many, many fond memories for us.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The location is fantastic! It is close to Lake Michigan, Pentwater, the fun downtown of Silver Lake, and the Silver Lake sand dunes yet it is very private.
