Why Mark Kemink chose Mears

This property is great on many levels. First of all, it's in great shape. The home is only 10 years old. It's also clean - which is a must for all our homes. It also has large spaces for the whole group to enjoy - along with separate spaces for adults and kids when they need a little space. It sleeps large groups - 15 people in beds which is also ideal for family groups. Lastly, it's in an awesome location - just down the road from the State Dunes Park (2000 acres of dunes), but Lake Michigan beaches, our own association beach (400 ft of frontage just a block or so away), plus there's a heated pool, tennis courts and shuffle board. It's a really nice place with a mix of activities readily available. We also have a hot tub and fire pit to top it off. Love it. We come here on fall weekends to enjoy it ourselves!

Great location, lots of space, open layout

  • 5 of 5

Spent Columbus Day weekend here and had an awesome time. 3 families-7 adults and 7 kids-had more than enough room to relax and play. Could've easily accommodated a few more people. Kids enjoyed the hot tub, playing football in the yard, and biking to the nearby lake and dunes. Adults enjoyed hanging out in the open layout living room, wraparound deck, and fire pit at night. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils, appliances. I would just beware of the friendly fruit flies and bench legs in the eating area-stubbed our toes a few times, lol! The owner, Mark, was great to work with! Very prompt in replying and friendly. Would definitely come back!!

Awesome space and place

  • 5 of 5

An awesome place to stay with plenty of space for little ones and big ones to move around in. It was very clean and well kept. We will definitely consider renting this place again in the future.

Plenty of Space for 15!

  • 5 of 5

This house easily accommodated our whole family of 15 (4 couples and 7 grandsons)! Our stay was wonderful and we were not ready to leave at the end of the week. Our 4 year old said he "wanted to stay 10 days plus 10". The house is very clean and Mark was responsive to our needs and questions.

We enjoyed the property's deck space, camp fire ring, 2 refrigerators, washer and dryer (lots of sand on the dunes and beaches), hot tub, loft space for the older boys, ample parking, heated pool and basketball courts! We rode our sand rail on the dunes and tubed behind our boat on Silver Lake. The grandson's favorite was Craig's Cruisers go carts. This was a boy's delight vacation! But we girls enjoyed the activities too.

Great location, open layout!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home and location! We loved the open floor plan of the home- perfect for a big group! The wrap around deck was huge and it had a decent yard for games and such! Plus it was super close to the main attractions of Silver Lake!

Getaway to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes of Michigan near Hart, Mears and Pentwater

A beach paradise! Nestled along the shore of Lake Michigan and Silver Lake you'll find massive sand dunes, beach buggies—with the only sand dunes in Michigan where you can drive your own ORV—and miles of pristine shoreline beaches designed for pure family fun. Silver Lake itself, located across the dune from Lake Michigan, is 600 acres.

Encompassing the towns of Hart, Mears, and Pentwater, Silver Lake Sand Dunes Area is the perfect spot for a family vacation with miles of tree-lined bike trails, historic towns, a lighthouse and more. Spend the morning on the dunes, the afternoon in the water and finish your day in one of our charming villages for a relaxing dinner at a locally owned restaurant.
