Very clean and nice place for family get togethers.

  • 5 of 5

This place was in a great location. Walking distance to the lighthouse and the beach and right on the channel to kayak out to Lake Michigan. It was easy to get to and from the dunes and town.

Perfect Silver Lake getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about the cottage. From the comfy beds to the kayaks, the lighthouse just yards away and the beach on Lake Michigan. Fires every night after watching the sunset. Just a perfect retreat.

Cottage was clean and very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We had a variety of ages. Our three little ones had a great time fishing from the shore. We used the kayaks routinely. The walk the Lake Michigan was doable for all including my 80y/o parents. We hope to do this again next year. Only suggestion would be to add some night time lighting.

Great cottage for our whole family

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 10 totally enjoyed our week getaway. The cottage is comfortable and contains everything needed for a great vacation. Temperatures were mild the week we were there, which was great because there isn't air conditioning. We enjoyed the large front deck, walking to Lake Michigan, kayaking, and playing in the sand. It was a fun time for our whole family.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property and very close to Lake Michigan. Loved seeing the sunsets on the beach, using the kayaks, and touring the lighthouse. Well stocked kitchen and lots of seating outdoors. Phil was very quick to answer any questions we had. We enjoyed our stay!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our vacation here. Had everything we needed and then some. House was spotless when we got there and housekeeper showed us where everything was, such a great lady even though we kept her longer because we talked so much. Had a great time at beach with two 2yr. olds,. kayak's were great. Campfires at night. Couldn't have asked for a better place. Love love it. Leo, Sharon and family
