Our week at Dave and Ellen's cottage was the epitome of relaxation which was exactly what we needed. The cottage was lovely, beautifully furnished and well equipped. Every detail was thought of. Dave and Ellen both greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a tour of the cottage and beach area. Having use of the paddle board and kayaks were a huge bonus for the week. We also enjoyed the other beach "toys". Spent several hours floating in the lake on one of the inter-tubes. The water was clear and so refreshing and the fishing was also very good. There are hiking and biking trails within a few miles and downtown Traverse City is only about 15 minutes away. We plan to return to Silver Lake. Having Dave and Ellen next door enables them to truly be the hosts who do the most!
My family and a few close friends stayed at the cabin for nearly a week prior to my wedding in Traverse City. Everything was just as pictured and very clean. Marti was pleasant and easy to communicate with and we enjoyed the treats she left when we checked in. The backyard and patio were perfect for hosting a cookout and the kitchen was well-stocked with appliances and serving-ware. It was only a short drive to Traverse City and Sutton’s Bay, where we traveled for day excursions. I would definitely stay here again.
