3 Bedroom 2 bath Updated Home/Cottage
About Brian DeGraaf
Life long resident of the Grand Rapids area. This is the 3rd home that I have had the pleasure of living on Silver Lake. Proud father of 2 adult children. Career change has prompted living in Portland, OR part of the time. This has allowed the opportunity to offer my home for your family and friends enjoyment. My mother and 2 brothers also have homes on the lake. I also have another vacation rental on Silver Lake, the Oregon coast, and a 36 foot Grand Banks boat for recreational charters in Oregon.
Brian DeGraaf purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Brian DeGraaf chose Rockford
Beautiful part of Michigan where it has the feel of being in Northern Michigan, but close to amenities and only 15 miles from downtown Grand Rapids. A short 5 miles from quant, historic, and charming Rockford. The home is on a quiet and safe street close to a turnaround with plenty of room outside for many activities. The home shows pride of ownership and offers a variety of amenities for guests of all ages.
What makes this Cottage unique
Lots of space outside to spread out. My brother lives next door is very helpful if you need anything if I'm not around. The best customer service is an absolute for me.

I was very impressed. Beautiful views, great beds, and very close to Grand Rapids. Great communication with Brian.
Our Weekend Trop to Michigan
We had a great time staying at this property the house was clean and comfortable. There was plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 children. The kids loved building snowmen in the yard and having snowball fights. This was the perfect location for us as we were visiting people in Grand Rapids and Rockford.
Solid property. The description in the listing was accurate.
Great cottage - make some memories!
We really enjoyed our stay at the lake house. Just minutes away from Cannonsburg ski and snow tubing. Although we traveled during the winter it would be a great summer trip as well. The lake is large and there is a sandy private beach with everything a family could possible need labeled and stored right on the beach. We really appreciated the extras like board games, couch throws, and really anything you needed to have an exceptional trip. We’ve rented a lot of vacation homes and this one was very well done. Brian has thought of everything. It is a very cute cottage. The 2nd bathroom upstairs was great for the kids. Enjoyed our stay a ton!!!! Grocery store right down the road. Only 10 minutes to downtown Rockford.
Prefect get away!
This property has everything! Literally. We vacationed here from Florida with our kids. Beautiful lake view. And lots to keep the kids entertained. We will definitely come back!
Lovely stay but a couple things to note
We stayed here for our annual “Christmas House”, so our review is during the winter time. Brian was readily available to answer questions.
We had 6 adults and 2 small kids and like other reviews it’s close quarters for that many people. There are a couple things to note:
Only two of the three bedrooms have doors, with the futon/queen bed room being an open loft space. So you’ll need to change around the corner :)
The futon is a brutal sleep unless you’re a kid.
There is no dishwasher but hopefully with the March remodel that changes.
The dining table is in a 3 season room, not the house itself. We were lucky there was warm weather during our visit to use the area.
Overall it was an ok stay for our needs, and we will consider coming back in the summer!
Silver Lake Golf Club is on the West side of the lake. Numerous mountain bike parks within 5 miles. Bike trail starts at North end of the lake through beautiful scenery to the village of Cannonsburg.
Downtown Rockford has many shops, restaurants and activities for the family.
