Overview

Willow Cottage is one of 3 cottages that make up our small lakeside resort with 70 ft of sandy Silver Lake frontage. The cottage has all amenities (Wi-Fi, central air conditioning, cable, flat screen TVs in living room and both bedrooms, fireplace, central heat, fully equipped kitchen) We are located equally between Traverse City and Interlochen – 10 minutes in either direction. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore is 25 minutes away. The lake is a crystal clear 600 acre spring-fed lake; great for boating, fishing and swimming. 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 and would be glad to provide aerial tours to our guests.
Silver Lake has clear sparkling water, surrounded by pine and hardwood tress with islands and peninsulas, great for boating, fishing and swimming. The resort has been in existence since the 1930's when Silver Lake just had a few resorts and family cottages dotting the landscape. Our resort is on prime flat lake front property with mature trees. The 70 ft of sandy beach has a firm sandy bottom, with no stairs or steps. 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. We strive to provide a peaceful and enjoyable experience for our guests.
Since our own home is located on the property, we are available for sight-seeing advice, restaurant recommendations. We have maps of nearby bike, walking trails, winery/brewery brochures and places only the locals know where to go and see.
The other cottage located in our little resort, is property ID # 361471 (Maple Grove).

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. My mother moved away when she was a young adult. 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. We moved here 9 months later.
