About Brian & Lori Aeschliman
Brian and Lori Aeschliman are the owners of this beautiful cabin. Brian is a machinist by trade and an avid builder. We started this cabin project 7 years ago by taking this cabin apart near our home in Ohio and sanding every log and putting it back together again at the Sand Dunes, one of our family's favorite vacation spots. With the help of other dune friends and family we've built this cabin..It has been an adventure and has turned out really awesome, We always have a week that the friends that helped put this up are invited to come and enjoy it with us. There has been a lot of fun and many friendships started up north. The boys love to drive their latest creation that they've made on the dunes Like trophy trucks, dune buggies Jeeps etc. And the girls love to go out to the beach and catch the rays.We feel blessed that we've had the opportunity to work and play together on this project.
Brian & Lori Aeschliman purchased this Cabin in 2013

Great vacation home!
Our stay here was downright awesome! The cabin is a bit hard to find but if you print the map emailed to you and follow it you will be fine- don’t follow your GPS. The cabin is beautiful and nestled in the woods which makes it feel peaceful but it’s still right in town. We loved the porch and porch swing. The water is a little hard so we brought bottled water - no big deal. The beds were all very comfortable!! The cabin is also stocked with games for evening activities. Lori is great, she is easy to get ahold of and made special arrangements for us to change our dates due to a death in our family. She was very pleasant! Will stay here again! Only downside is you can’t have dogs on the property- but it’s understandable! Loved it! 5 stars!
Thank you for staying at the cabin and so glad you enjoyed your time there.
Beautiful Cabin - close to Silver Lake and Lake Michigan
This cabin is amazing! We initially had a group of 6, and our daughter's boyfriend surprised her with a proposal while we were here, so that made a couple days of 7 people. There was PLENTY of sleeping space for everyone, and all of the beds are really comfortable! The kitchen is well stocked for dishes you need to prepare meals. There was plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, paper plates, which was great! The outside shower is amazing! We were all fighting over using it instead of the one inside! We made great use of the hammocks and chairs outside, as well as the fire pit. It was nice having a break from TV and WiFi, as well. The hosts were always quick to answer any questions I had. I would highly recommend staying in this cabin! There is so much to do in Western Michigan, and this is the perfect place to stay to see it all!
So glad you loved the cabin as much as we do!! Thanks so much
The cabin is very charming in a rustic sort of way. It’s tucked into the woods, but close to town
We enjoyed our time there immensely. We have been coming to Silver Lake for several years and wanted to try something new. The cabin is charming and tucked away in the woods, but close to town. We brought far too many things, underestimating that the owners have provides just about everything you will possible need. Silver Lake in general isn’t the best for cellular service, so if you can’t stand to be off your phone this isn’t for you. However, it is a short drive to the Whippy Dip and service was fine there; so we would go there once or twice to check messages and social media. My family and I stayed 3 nights and we wished it was 4.
There is only one bathroom, but there is an outdoor shower, which was a hit with us all, and we had no issues with not being able to share the one bathroom.
The air conditioning is newer and works great, but we really didn’t need it. Frankly, it was nice being tucked away on the edge of town at the cabin in the woods and, although isolated from the noise and people in town, close enough to be there in about 3 minutes.
The owners were very responsive to any questions I had in advance through email. The water is well water, of course, and tastes really bad, so you want to bring plenty of bottled water, which we did and Shopko in Hart sells really cheap any way.
Overall it was a really great experience. This is coming from 6 people who have only ever stayed in hotels, by the way. We will certainly be booking the cabin again. This time for more days than the 3 we had. Totally recommend this place.
Thanks for the review!! Actually we have cell service now they just got the tower up this week! Looking forward to your return!
Beautiful family cabin
This was our second year staying at this cabin and we love it. It has everything we need right there. Plenty of space for parking and sleeping. We love spending time outside on the deck and the outdoor shower is the best!
Property and house were in a very relaxing and convenient location to the dunes ans town.
We would definitely stay here again. Quite relaxing, plenty of beds and outside seating.
