A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I've never done a vacation rental before so I didn't know what to expect. I was so impressed. The owner kept me well informed and the home was perfect! It was spotless when we walked in and was very spacious. We kept saying how great it would be in the summer once weather gets nicer. I definitely recommend staying here!! Thank you for a great weekend!

Pure Michigan!

  • 5 of 5

A great house, comfortable, cozy and plenty of room when the kids & spouses showed up to attend a family wedding.

We loved the fire place, we enjoyed fresh vegetables from their garden. Our Host/Owner was available and gracious. We enjoyed local restaurants- The Bostwick Lake Inn, Vitales pizza from Rockford and GR. We enjoyed Slows BBQ, Founders Brewery, the Saz, Arnies in Rockford and Arnies-Leonard Street area. Robinetts 🍎󣠠Orchard had great pumpkin spice donuts, fresh cider and wonderful apples. The bike trail at Cannon township offices was great. Lots of wildlife, fast, exhilarating rides. The White Pine trail where I started from in downtown Rockford, probably 15 minutes from Silver Lake, was very scenic and a great ride as well. We would definitively stay here again and our dog is still depressed after swimming everyday. Thanks Brian.

Pure Michigan

  • 5 of 5

Great Host/owner. The lake is very nice. The house had everything we needed. Had fresh squash and other produce from their garden. Location was secluded without being distant from everything. Plenty of firewood. Our favorite room was the sunroom. I really enjoyed the bike trail at both the White Pine trail and the Cannon township trail. Both were very convenient. Enjoyed the kitchen -well equipped, the restaurants in Rockford/ Bostwick Lake , Arnies, the Corner Bar. In GR-,Slows BBQ, Founders Brewery, Vitales pizza Leonard St. area.

Our Labrador especially loved swimming daily, being able to monitor the lake, the road, the yard. A wonderful month on Silver Lake.
