Maple Grove is our Traverse City 3 bedroom, 2 bath vacation cottage.
Maple Grove Cottage and Willow Cottage* make up our small family owned and operated 2 cottage lakeside resort.
-Both cottages are located on one of the best 70 ft. of sandy beach frontage that Silver Lake offers.
- Silver Lake is a crystal clear 600 acre spring-fed lake. It is surrounded by pine and hardwood trees with islands and peninsulas. It is great for boating, fishing and swimming.
- It is an easy 10 minute drive to Traverse City.
-The cottage has: Wi-Fi, cable TVs, central air conditioning, gas fireplace, central heat, and a fully equipped kitchen.
-There are two docks, a swimming raft, kayaks, paddle boards and hammocks which are available to our guests at no extra charge.
-Each cottage has its own outdoor table, charcoal grill and campfire pits with wood provided.
-The resort has been in existence since the 1930's when Silver Lake had only a few fishing resorts and cottages. The original owners picked prime lake sandy beach frontage to locate this resort. It is on ¾ of an acre of flat lake-front property, 500 ft. from the road, with a large backyard for games.. Having direct frontage with no steps to the lake is a plus for lake living.
This is a smoke free, pet free resort.
The other cottage located in our resort is Willow cottage: http://www.rentmichigancabins.com/detail.php?id=1401

We take great pride in our clean/comfortable/updated homes that our guests will call home during their stay. You will be able to relax and enjoy your vacation as we are very available for assistance as we are here to help.

The Crown and Interlochen Golf courses are close by and ones we personally have used.
Traverse City’s downtown nightlight offers lots of romantic options. There are so many restaurants to choose from, you’ll find the perfect match. After your evening out, it’s just a short drive back to all the comforts of Maple Grove and the moonlight on the lake.
It is only a 10-minute drive west to Interlochen, best known for its Interlochen Center for the Arts school for young musicians. The center hosts a variety of concerts and other events, so check out their events calendar during your stay..

5/5 star Peaceful and relaxing
Exactly what we were looking for. Felt just like home with a beautiful lake as our backyard. So relaxing and peaceful. Had so much fun. Very accommodating.08/24/2019 at 6:40 PM Celestina B Sat, Jul 27 – Sat, Aug 03, 2019
5/5 star stars Traverse City Lakefront. We had a great time here for 3 days over Labor Day weekend. Marian greeted us and gave me a quick tour and answered any initial questions. The house was clean and roomy. The view of the lake from multiple rooms was great along with a veranda overlooking the lake. Beds were comfortable and kitchen was great. The drive to DT Traverse City was only about 10 minutes. This was a great location to hit TC and the peninsula. I would definitely rent again if we come back up this way.09/05/2019 at 5:36 PM
Aaaaaaaah, yes! I rented this lovely cottage based on the owner's description and one review, then held my breath. Well, not to worry, the cottage is as described. It is very clean, updated, nicely decorated, and quiet. Yes, the owners are next door, but are very respectful of renters' privacy, yet available if you need something. There are two cottages total that share the lake frontage with the owners. Owner Marian has taken great care (and a lot of work!) to create lovely gardens with a hint of whimsy. We had all the amenities we needed for preparing most meals in. The three bedrooms and one of the two baths are off the kitchen, separated by a door from the living areas, so if you are early to bed or early to rise, the quiet is a nice surprise. :) We were only four miles from the local Meijer and about 10-15 minutes from downtown Traverse City. So, we had the beauty and quiet of the lake, with the conveniences of downtown nearby. We stayed for two weeks: week one with friends to explore the many wineries, and week two with family, including a four-year-old, who absolutely loved the sandy beach and water. In addition to wineries, we explored Sleeping Bear Dunes, Pierce Stocking Drive, Glen Arbor, Leleand, the Art Park at Crystal Mountain, and the Dennos museum. We truly enjoyed our stay, and hope to return. the sooner the better! Janice F.
Perfect Weekend Getaway! This property was exactly what my wife and I needed to get away from the busyness of life for a weekend. We had a great time walking on the sand along the waterfront and chillin' in the hammock. The facilities were very nice and there was plenty of space for us to unwind and relax. Seeing how this property is so close to Traverse City, it is the perfect retreat to unwind and still have easy access to city life. The owners Tom and Marian are also delightful hosts; they are very kind and personable. I highly recommend this property. Keegan C.
Can't wait to go back! I was somewhat hesitate to rent the Maple Grove Cottage, because it didn't have any reviews yet, which made me a little uncomfortable, although I think I understand why now; everyone wants to keep this little gem their secret! Prior to arriving, Marian was very helpful in answering all the many questions I had, and gave us a lot of tips and suggestions. She always answered my e-mail inquiries in a very pleasant and timely fashion! On arrival, upon opening the door I knew we had made the right decision! The fresh clean smell of the cottage was very inviting to a germaphobe as myself! The cottage is just as it appears in the pictures and is very clean! Something we noticed, that is usually lacking in other rentals, is that the cottage was very soundproof! We couldn't hear the other couple in their room, even though we were right next to each other! That applied to the whole cottage, bathrooms included. Solid construction! Basically, the entire property is quiet, the few neighbors including the Brady's are all very quiet and respectful of each other. Lastly, we just loved Marian and her husband "Tom Brady"! lol They were so accommodating and helpful and very pleasant to chat with! I even left some items behind, and Marian shipped them back to me within 3 days of my calling her! can't wait to return to Maple Grove, it is one of our new favorite vacation spots! Judy K.

My husband, Tom and I were married in 1979. We moved to Traverse City in 1980 from the city of Detroit. My mother was raised on an local farm. My maternal great grandparents were pioneers to the area. I developed my love for the area as a young child as we vacationed every year in Traverse City. Tom and I honeymooned in Traverse City and moved there 9 months later. We raised our 5 children in Traverse City. We discovered and purchased our small resort in 1989. It was a diamond in the rough, but it had a great private sandy beach and was in close to Traverse City. We remodeled the cottages as we raised our 5 children. We worked on the cottages as a family. Over the years, our children have learned many skills and developed a great work ethic as everyone helped over the years.
