About the property

3 bedroom, 2 batthroom, twin sleeper sofa in living room. Sleeps 10

Our Cottage is located in the very front of the Floradale Association. Literally steps away from the heated pool with slide. So convenient for all, but especially if you have kids in your party. You also have access to the Club House, Shuffleboard, Tether ball, Horse Shoes, Tennis and Basketball courts as well as 400ft of private association beachfront and our private dock without extra charge.

Our cottage has 3 bedrooms, 2 with Queen beds, and 1 with 2 sets of bunk beds. Living Room has a Queen sleeper and a Twin Sleeper. There are 2 baths, one with shower only, the other a full bath with tub. There is also a large fully equipped kitchen and large dinning room. The cottage also has a large deck and a large patio area as well with lawn furniture, a outdoor grill, and a private fire pit.

We have recently renovated the cottage and it looks amazing. All new windows, decking, railings, exterior, and 2 heat and air units! This cottage will not disappoint!

Just a few miles away is the state park dunes where you can ride through the sand or walk. Also, you can take a dune ride from Mac Woods or rent a buggy to tear up the dunes yourself. There is also a 22 mile paved bike /hiking trail along with mini-golf, bumper cars, go-carts, and many specialty shops to browse through. So book your rental today! I hope to hear from you soon!

wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was clean and was a wonderful place to stay. Our grandchildren loved the swimming pool and it was so nice and close for us! We hope to stay again!

Perfect location in Silver Lake!

  • 4 of 5

This bright, centrally located cabin is in the perfect Floradale location for swimming, shuffleboard, pickle ball and more. We have been coming to Silver Lake as a family for over 30 years. The kitchen is spacious and we served 15-30 people on at least two occasions. Some larger pots, pans and skillets would be a great addition, but I was able to borrow from other family staying in nearby cabins. I would say the multiple outdoor dining spaces and large deck were the highlights. The bedrooms were tight for our group of adults, but would be great with small children. The only real drawback is the extreme sulphur smell and metal taste of the water which was unusable for cooking, coffee and drinking. We bought water and filled containers at neighbors to solve this problem. Overall it was a wonderful, sunny week filled with fun activities and family bonding.

Nice cottage - poor communication

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Mears with extended family who rented another cottage in the same neighborhood. We had a lovely stay and the cottage was great - very comfortable and well stocked with everything we needed for our family of 6.

We had 2 issues during our stay. The first was that when we arrived at the cottage, we were unable to get into it. I had emailed Melissa the day prior and on our drive to Mears asking for instructions on entering the house. Both went unanswered. We were at the cottage for about 20 minutes looking for hidden keys or unlocked windows when we got lucky. Melissa's housekeeper happened to stop by with a few extra supplies and was nice enough to give us the code to get in. She was beyond friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. An hour and 40 minutes after check-in time was when I finally received the code from Melissa. Our other issue happened on Saturday morning. We were trying to get ready to leave the house. My teenage daughter was in the shower (with shampoo suds in her hair) when the water went off. There was no water at all in the cottage. I had my daughter run across to my family's cottage so that she could finish showering. We eventually found a service man had come to replace a filter near the well pump and had shut off the water. He seemed unconcerned that he left my daughter and the rest of us stranded without water for at least 15 minutes with no forewarning or apology. He simply said "there's never a good time to do this". We ended up being late for our excursion.

While Friday and Saturday started our trip on a sour note, the rest of the trip was quite nice. We had great weather and a comfortable cottage to stay in. I found Melissa to be quite slow responding to emails throughout (my only way to contact her until after we were in the cottage) - from trying to reserve the cottage, to check-in and finally when asking to see when my security deposit was going to returned. The deposit refund finally arrived by check 2 full weeks after we checked out.

Wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed their stay here. We have two grandkids who loved swimming in the pool and being near the dunes. We had plenty of room for all of us.

Loved it

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and my kids absolutely loved this cottage. Very clean. Our only complaint was the lack of hot water for showers. It was lukewarm consistently. We will likely stay here again. Very nice place.
