About Emily Burritt
We love to travel and have done so extensively with our two children. We have logged over 20,000 miles in our RV while taking our children to all fifty states. Traverse City is still considered one of the most beautiful places in the country in our book. We always look forward to spending time at the cabin because it is such a cozy and peaceful place.
Emily Burritt purchased this Cabin in 2000
Why Emily Burritt chose Traverse City
As a native of Traverse City, I grew up enjoying the lakes around the area. I was thrilled when Kurt and I had the chance to buy this log cabin. We worked hard to update it by adding modern amenities without losing the character and charm and that 'up-north' feel. It is just ten minutes to downtown Traverse City, yet you feel like you are away from it all. Traverse City offers such a great quality of life along with many wonderful local shops and restaurants to enjoy.
What makes this Cabin unique
A quiet and peaceful setting on the East side of Silver Lake. Our favorite thing to do during our stay at the cabin is pack up a picnic lunch and take a cruise around the lake on the pontoon boat. With the boat conveniently docked at the private sandy beach, there is little effort to enjoying the beauty of Silver Lake. This pristine, all sports lake, is the closest lake to Traverse City with easy access to everything. Our evenings usually consist of cooking delicious steaks from our family market, Burritt's Fresh Market while watching the fabulous sunsets. We always end the evening with a campfire next to the lake listening to the frogs and loons. Life doesn't get any better than that!

Another magical visit to Traverse City area
This updated log cabin is inviting and cozy. The location on a quiet cove on Silver Lake was just right for us. Kitchen well-equipped, bedrooms and living area comfortable, and great outdoor space, too. Heartily recommend!
August 2019 Stay
There were six adults and one toddler staying at the cabin. The property was clean and met our expectations. The owner left us items to make s’mores which is did one night around the fire pit. The cabin is located not far from Traverse City and other fun spots such as Sleeping Bear Dunes. The boat added extra fun for getting around the lake. All-in-all, we had a wonderful vacation and will have many happy memories.
charming cottage on beautiful lake! Pontoon boat was a highlight!
Loved this property and we had a great time! It was immaculately clean and owner added little touches like spa robes and nice bathroom amenities. Kitchen was stocked well with pots and pans, utensils etc. Beautiful lawn and yard with beach area. Highlight of our trip was the pontoon boat- took it out several times a day to go swimming, sunset cruise or dock and watch other activities on the lake. The boat is very easy to use- owner showed us how and is great for families. Nice deck with BBQ grill and we ate out every night. The location was great and close to town. Her family market - Burritts - was great- fabulous meats and seafood plus any ingredient you could imagine. Also Meijer 5 mins away. Perfect for 4 adults, a couple of kids and a dog! Very relaxing! We would highly recommend!!!
Thank you for the great review! We love sharing our wonderful cabin and have tried to make it a special get-away for couples and families. We hope you get a chance to come back again!

Cozy cabin perfect for the family
Our family enjoyed our stay at this cozy cabin. It was perfect for our two teenagers and our 3 year old niece. She was able to use the beach and wade out into the shallow water. Our hosts were wonderful and quickly responded to our texts. The s’mores we a nice surprise at our check in. I highly recommend this property and hosts thank you for making our vacation so special.
Thank you for the kind words. We are so happy your family enjoyed our cabin! We would love to host you again sometime!

Amazing vacation at a superb cabin!
Our family of five (3 children 5 and under) had an outstanding vacation in the Traverse City area thanks to the exceptionally organized and clean cabin. The owners met us upon arrival and walked us through the property, showing us everything we needed to know. If needed, they were easy to contact for any questions while we were staying. The s'mores supplies provided were a thoughtful touch. The cabin was very clean and well organized; great to have starter paper supplies provided, clean/fresh linens, and comfortable beds! Kitchen was well stocked and cooking/grilling was a breeze. The fire pit, sand beach and dock were great for outside activities, as was the pontoon which was used everyday at the cabin. Our family loved taking boat rides around the lake and finding sandbars where we could swim!
We also loved the proximity to Traverse City and the surrounding area activities. Sleeping Bear Dunes, Leenenau peninsula, and Old Mission peninsula are a must for families. This was our second trip to Traverse City and plan to come back again next year!
Beautiful cabin, great location!
My family and I had an amazing time staying in the cabin! It was so peaceful and is a beautiful property. Kurt and Emily met us there to show us around in the cabin. It was well stocked with all the little details. We loved having the pontoon boat to use at our convenience. We were on the lake everyday, I loved going on a boat ride in the evening. Our kids loved playing on the sandy area, and swimming in the lake. One of the best vacation rentals we've stayed at!
