Plenty of parking for vehicles and your trailer.

Things To Do

The Sandy Beach Cottage is on a local hotspot for fishing. Silver Lake is great for Bass, Bluegill, Perch, Pike, Lake sunfish, and Walleye. How about a fish dinner over an open flame back at the cottage?

Our Cottage is only 5 miles from the shopping and Traverse City fun. If you want to walk a larger beach, check out the 180 miles of sugar-sand Lake Michigan shoreline in Grand Traverse Bay. Climb the sand dunes at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore! Attend a couple of famous festivals: National Cherry Festival or Traverse City Film Festival. Historic Mackinac Island is only a 2 hour drive away!

Since you book with us (David and Ellen), we can tell you all about the local activities from award-winning wineries to championship golf courses. Did you know? Traverse City is one of the country’s Top Five Foodie Towns! Bring your beach towels and an appetite. While out and about, let the kids burn some energy at one of the 2 nearby parks with kids playground.

We really enjoyed our stay here! The cottage owners are very friendly, flexible, and accommodating. Everything we needed was provided, and many extra items included (board games, movies, outdoor activities) and the home was very clean! The property had its own beach area with a nice area for a camp fire set up wth chairs. We were even able to use the paddle boat, paddle board, and kayaks! The lake was beautiful, and had wonderful sunset views every evening. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay! You will love it here. Tyler W.
My wife and I spent 4 wonderful days at this great little retreat on Silver Lake. It was just what we needed. Reading, fishing, and yes even swimming in the middle of September... the weather was that great! The cottage is very charming and so well kept. It has everything you need. A fully stocked kitchen, comfortable bed, lounge chairs on the beach, kayaks and float toys to use all made this a very enjoyable stay. Dave & Ellen were great hosts and went out of there way to make us feel welcomed. Hope we can visit again some day. William S.
We had the best vacation! This house is perfect! It has everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable and fun! The owners are truly amazing and provide so much help and information. The lake and beach area is beautiful and we loved having the kayaks, paddle boat, paddle board, diving dock, and all of the other fun toys! It’s a gorgeous property with the nicest owners. And the overall location is excellent for all activities around Traverse City and the Sleeping Bear Dunes! We will be back! Our children are in love with this place as well! Amy A.
Great pride in ownership! The owners were very accommodating to our needs with 2 small children and we over packed because the house was fully stocked with everything you could think of. Thank you Ellen and Dave, it was a pleasure! Heather S.
We had an amazing experience this summer in Traverse City, mainly due to our stay here!! We have four children, including an 8 week old, and the house was well stocked with needed items. It was a life saver not having to bring many things from home. Our 3 boys (ages 3, 9, and 11) had the best time ever on the lake! They thoroughly enjoyed the row boat ride to "turtle cove", kayaks, and paddle boat. We enjoyed making s'mores over the fire pit and watching fireworks over the water. Shannon B.
This has been our third year renting David and Ellen's cottage and we always love it. They are fantastic hosts and take care of their guests and the property. After three years they feel like part of our family as my kids look forward to going to "Mrs. Ellen and Mr. David's" house every year and talk about it in the months approaching our annual family vacation up north. They have watched our kids grow so much in the last three years and are always so thoughtful. The home is always clean and well maintained and if an issue comes up they both work as quickly as possible to resolve it. The location of the home is perfect with sunset views on the lake to a short drive to downtown Traverse City. Everything you need is close by and extremely confident when you have little ones like we do. I have rented vacation homes for many years and have never been more satisfied with my experience than I have with David and Ellen. They are truly wonderful people with a great property that focus on ensuring their guests' experience is one that you will never forget and always cherish. Sammy M.
Enjoyable week...our stay is always a great experience!!! Alan G.
My wife and I had a great stay. The house was clean, neat, and as advertised. The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. We would highly recommend this place. Scott S.
