    -- THE LOCATION --

    Take advantage of this home's top-notch Traverse City location by making a splash in Silver Lake. Since you'll be living just steps from the shore with access to paddle boards, a rowboat and kayak, you'll be able to explore the lake however you want!

    Downtown Traverse City offers a unique array of businesses that are sure to impress. Whether you choose to day at a 5-star restaurant, visit a distinctive shop, or walk down the bay, you're sure to fall in love with this gorgeous Michigan town.

    This home is located in the heart of Northern Michigan's beautiful wine country. Since this area sits close to the 45th parallel, known for growing world-renowned grapes, a winery in Leelanau or Old Mission is a must.

    Love good food? Then you've come to the right place. Traverse City is one of the great foodie destinations where an emphasis on fresh produce, artisan cheeses, and locally grown poultry and meats make dining out an experience that can't be matched in many larger cities.

    If you're looking to explore the area further, check out Leland, Empire, and Suttons Bay, some of the area's most popular tourist towns.

    What an amazing vacation spot! The rental was even nicer than we thought it would be. My only complaint is that I wish we could have stayed longer. My husband and I are hoping to make this an annual spot for our family getaways.

    Don't know where to begin describing how amazing this place was. When webooked the trip, we figured if it was 20% as nice, we'd be thrilled. It was1,000% better! The whole house was bigger than pictured and the amount ofshoreline was amazing. Because of its placement on the lake and the shapeof the lake, it feels like you have your own private area all to yourself.Most of the power boats stay to the northern end, while the southern end isperfect for paddle boarding, kayaking, and swimming. The touches at thehouse were really what put it over the top...the board games, cute signs,yummy coffee, gorgeous vintage fridge, the colors of the interior design,and the extra beach toys, which we were lacking. We only left the propertyto go shopping because it was so peaceful, fun, and easy to have everythingyou wanted right at your fingertips. Looking forward to a longer stay nextsummer!

    Well kept cottage, had everything we needed, thoughtfully laid out. The lake is great. There was more waterskiing on the lake than we would have liked, which made fishing more difficult. Overall- an excellent experience that we are excited to repeat.

    Stayed here with my children recently The property is absolutely incredible. The lake and Sandy Beach area are great for paddleboarding and kayaking, as well as swimming and fishing. I brought my jet boat up and we did tubing and kneeboarding as well. The location to Traverse City and the Leelanau Peninsula is fantastic for short day trips as well. The cottage is small, but nicely updated on the inside. Would highly recommend this property and will definitely be coming back again.

    What a unique spot for a mini-vacation while dropping our daughter at boarding school! We loved the views and the thoughtful, fun touches throughout. The house is very private, nestled on a little peninsula jutting into Silver Lake. There were multiple spots to sit and enjoy morning coffee or evening wine. Loved our stay and looking forward to packing up our daughter in the spring and hopefully staying again!

    You will be amazed at the location of this property, the views, the amenities - like kayaks, canoes, stand up paddle boards - the beach, the water, and everything about this place. If you have a chance to book this place, please do yourself a favor and book it. It's 15 minutes from Downtown TC, but you'll want to spend as much time here as you possible can. It is sincerely a slice of heaven. As a side note, you will be asked to sign a waiver to use the boats and paddle boards, don't let that throw you for a loop.
