About Traverse City Vacation Cottages
Take a look at our three different vacation homes and see which one should become part of your family’s next northern Michigan getaway! Each home has its own unique features and amenities. We invite you to join the hundreds of families we have hosted since 1989!
Willow Cottage, Maple Grove Cottage, and Pines Cottage make up our small lakeside resort, just 10 minutes from Traverse City. It is located on 1.2 acres of land, with 70 ft of sandy Silver Lake frontage. There are two docks, a swimming raft, kayaks, paddle boards and hammocks that are shared by our guests. Each cottage has its own outdoor table, charcoal grill and campfire pits with wood provided. We live on the property and have an additional 30 ft of lake frontage for our personal use — we have our seaplane docked there.
We are available for sight-seeing advice and restaurant recommendations. Silver Lake has clear sparkling water, surrounded by pine and hardwood trees with islands and peninsulas, great for boating, fishing (Bluegill, Bass, Walleye, Sunfish) and swimming. Our resort is on prime flat lake front property with no stairs or steps. The 70 ft of sandy beach is shared by the three cottages. There is a large backyard for yard games. We have owned and managed the cottages since 1989 and take great pride in keeping them in tip-top condition.
