Property description

The cottage is on Silver Lake, which is one of the premier lakes in West Michigan, only 15 miles from Downtown Grand Rapids and 5 miles from Downtown Rockford. The home was updated in 2013 and has about 1700 sq. feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, plus a 3 Season porch. The cottage sits on a large flat lot with 80 feet of sandy beach with a fire pit for gathering with your family and friends. The property also includes a 300 foot deep back lot with a large driveway and garage.

Silver Lake is an all sports lake with about 225 acres that is in the top 5% of lakes in Michigan in water clarity. The home faces southeast so you will enjoy waking up to beautiful sunrises and sunsets that can be seen from the water.

A dock is included with a 14 foot rowboat, 4 person paddle boat, kayaks, a canoe, and a stand up paddle board provided for your enjoyment. The cottage also has a basketball hoop, baggo, croquet, horseshoes, volleyball, bocce, 4 bikes, etc. are available for your use.

*** Because of multiple request, I purchased an almost new 21 foot pontoon boat that will be available for rent for the 2017 season. Please inquire on pricing.

There are numerous recreational activities in area with numerous parks and bike trails close by. Many golf courses are located close by with Silver Lake Country club located adjacent to the lake that is open to the public. A variety of wonderful shops and restaurants are located within 5 miles of the cottage. In the winter Cannonsburg Ski Resort is 2 miles to the south of the home.

Please note * This is a private lake. There is a boat ramp, but it is only open on Monday and Wednesday nights from 6 pm to 9 pm. You are welcome to bring the boat the Thursday before your arrival or leave the boat and pick it up the following Monday after your departure.
