Cottage with a view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great mini vaca! The location is just perfect! Close town & the wineries! The lake is gorgeous and was so clean and clear! We utilized the paddle board and canoe. Those were great pluses to this cottage! My husband also enjoyed docking his boat right out back and went on many fishing trips. We also enjoyed a couple bonfires out by the lake. Very relaxing! Only thing I would have liked was air conditioning. But honestly that was minor. We were only inside to sleep. Overall great cottage! I would go back! Thanks again!!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. We just put the air conditioning units in after you left. So sorry, we didn't realize they would have been needed last weekend.

Amazing vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this cottage. It is perfect for a small family. The location was perfect for all the sites that we saw. My kids loved using the paddle boat and swimming in the lake. Thanks again!

Pam and the Brits

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place, very clean, very restful on the eye as well. Decor was well thought out. Lived the little touches, such as the citronella torches, the rope lighting, swing cushions, boardgames for kids, inflatables and the water toys. Everyine had a great time. There were other family members is other cottages but we clearly had the best view. Even the weather cooperated. Thank you for a delightful stay.

Silver Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very centrally located to do lots of things. We golfed, went to the Sleeping Bear Dunes, took a day and went to Mackinaw Island and the UP(about a 2 1/2 hour drive). So much to do within a 20 minute drive, as well. The cottage was very nice and very comfortable. The use of the paddle boat, canoe and stand up paddle board was such a nice feature. Beautiful and quiet mornings and gorgeous sunsets. Our Grandson loved playing in the shallow water. I brought a floating chair to tie to the dock for relaxing on the water, and there was a blow up one available so we had two. Also, played the bean bag toss in the evening and the fire-pit is large so the little one couldn't get too close. We definitely would recommend this property and hope to return for another vacation.
