About the Property

This cottage has a large great room, open to the kitchen and to a large deck. The deck has a view of Hunter's Creek and a peaceful wooded lot. There are steps/decking down to the dock - bring your pole and cast a line. The creek has direct access to Silver Lake, suitable for smaller boats, kayaks, canoes and wave runners. During your stay you also have use of the association pool, playground and picnic area just down our street.
There are 3 bedrooms, equipped with a queen size bed in two of them and full size bed in the third. We also have a futon sleeper in the great room. The bathroom has a tub/shower combo. The great room is very open and perfect for socializing (6 persons at the table, 4 seats at the bar and more on the deck at the picnic table). The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, fridge, microwave, coffee maker. toaster - the works! We aim to please the 'foodie' in you!
To make your stay more relaxing, we have loaded the book case with beach reads and books for the kids. There is also a toy bin and plenty of board games. We have cable TV, Xbox console/games and wireless internet.
Outside there is a BBQ grill, deck furniture and fire pit. We have a long driveway that can accommodate your trailer with all the 'toys' and additional parking spots along the road.
This location is within walking distance to everything - you can be close to all the fun, but enjoy privacy & quiet. The kids can ride their bikes safely on our cul-de-sac street. Just a short walk away are go-karts/arcade, bumper cars/boats, miniature golf at Craig's Cruisers, shopping at Dunetown Mall, Ice Cream, restaurants, any type of water craft rental at the Wave Club, Jeep/Quad/Buggy rentals. Or, hop on your bike or lace up your running shoes and cruise the paved pedestrian path around the entire lake. A ride out to the tallest lighthouse on Lake Michigan, Little Sable Point, to catch an evening sunset is a must-do on your vacation bucket list. The Lighthouse is open for tours during summer weekends.

About the owner: Hi! Tammy & Sean Carey have been renting cottages at Silver Lake for 20 years. The Beech House was passed down through the family, recently coming into our ownership. We pride ourselves on having very clean and well maintained/equipped properties. We live and work in the area and are available immediately for any maintenance issue or questions. Our past renters have become our friends, coming back year after year. This is our second year of renting this cottage.
Why the Owner Chose Mears, MI, USA:
This was Sean's family cottage dating back to 1973. They completed a beautiful addition 10 years or so ago (adding a great room, expanded deck & decking to the creek). We also did quite a few updates to the cottage. Sean and Tammy also met right here in 1984! Tammy's parents own a cottage down the street. Our 4 boys have grown up on this street visiting their grandparents on both sides, playing in the pool & playground, riding their bikes, boating, fishing in the channel and all sorts of shenanigans . We have so many fond memories on this street. We know you will make great family memories here too.
