Reviews

07/15/2020 Great place right on Silver Lake!
We had a wonderful summer week on Silver lake. Perfect place for our family of 4. We swam off dock in beautiful water and use the SUP board and kayaks every day. We rented a pontoon boat and explored the lake and kids tubed! Owners were very attentive and responsive. Great location for summer activities.
06/30/2020 Great getaway. We had a great five days in the Willow Cottage. There are kayaks and waterboards for use and we took advantage of both. The property is also convenient to grocery stores, downtown Traverse City and it's about a half hour drive from Sleeping Bear Dunes. We highly recommend a stay here.
7/15/2020, Peaceful relaxing getaway, Marian and Maple Grove Cottage was a cute cottage on Silver Lake - about 10-15 min to downtown Traverse City. We were a party of 2 adults, 4 young adults and 1 teen. The cottage was clean and we appreciated the updated furniture with USB ports and WiFi. Also very nice to be able to use our Netflix and Hulu accounts on the living room TV. We spent most of our time outside - swimming, fishing off the dock or using the kayaks and paddle boards provided. It was a little of a Bed and Breakfast feel as the owners live Next door and there is another cottage you share the beach and amenities with. This was a very friendly -family oriented place which was perfect for us. Marian was an excellent communicator and Tom even had to rescue us when our rented boat ran out of gas! How great was that! Thank you for allowing us a getaway during the COVID situation :)
9/30/2020 Relaxing Early Fall Getaway. We had a peaceful and lovely stay in the Willow Cottage in mid September. Marian was great! She was quick to respond to our request for a reservation and always responded with great detail to the questions we sent. The process of making the reservation and getting information was very smooth. The cottage was well kept and cozy. It worked well for my parents, my husband and I. It was a perfect fall getaway for us to get a change of scenery and continue our social distancing up north!
09/11/2020 Perfect getaway! Location was perfect. The cottage was clean and super cozy. The views of the lake were amazing. What a wonderful peaceful place!

About the Owner/Manager

We have owned and operated this small resort since 1989. We live in a separate home on the property with our own 30 feet of lakefront. The resort has been in existence since the 1930's when Silver Lake just had a few resorts and family cottages dotting the landscape. We are recognized by Traverse City's township to legally operate as a short-term vacation rental. We love to share information with our guests regarding sightseeing, area activities and restaurant recommendations. We have maps of nearby biking, walking trails, winery/brewery brochures and directions to places only the locals know about.
