Please think of this Cottage as your Grandma's home. If you need something, use something. If you have something leave something. (Like extra laundry soap :) The next closest house is almost a mile away. The Pro Shop & Restaurant is just steps away. There is a very large pond a short walk away. There is a lot of room in the front of the house and side of the house for parking large vehicles. The entire house is surrounded by big Maple trees that keep the house cool in the summer.

There is no central air conditioning, but there is 2 window air conditioning units. In Silver Lake there is usually is a strong breeze coming from Lake Mi. That's because the Silver Lake Area is set 2 miles out into Lake Michigan.! So remember to bring an extra sweatshirt. There is a few window fans in the house to help circulate air when it does get warm. Place these in the windows to bring the cooler night air in.

There is not beach towels, or bath towels supplied. There is kitchen towels. There is a private paved drive for you on the south side of the house. Please use these spaces for your family. Any repairs to vehicles must be on this pavement. The back yard & front yard is the best places for children to play. Please use golf etiquette with noise for the happiness of all guests at Golden Sands. (Revving engines lots & loud music is not good etiquette :)

When golfing & dining, all alcoholic beverages must be purchased at Golden Sands.

Your Free Golf may be used all at once, or spread out during your stay. There is a driving range, practice putting green, as well as the 9 hole golf course. Golf carts are available to be used on the golf course for an additional fee.

Please place all dirty sheets by the washing machine before check out. Clean out refrigerator, place garbage in the garbage bins, run dishwasher for dirty dishes.

Check in time is 3:00pm ​Check out is 11:00am

DIRECTIONS TIPS: We are set 2 miles from Lk. Michigan & Silver Lake Sand Dunes. When entering our address, DO NOT put NORTH wilson rd. It will lead you astray. Please use 2501 Wilson Rd. Mears, Mi. 49436. Silver Lake is usually called Mears on all mailings & GPS.

Old country home. Slept us all comfortably

  • 4 of 5

Quite country home. Nothing spectacular with the house itself, but the convenience of the attached golf course and restaurant made for an awesome experience. Definitely get the pizza. Alicia was a great host and very welcoming. Very unique setup that fit multiple truck and trailer combos with ease. Would consider staying again.

Not safe.

  • 2 of 5

Old farm house that needs a lot of work. Electrical outlets so old that they won't hold a plug. Air conditioner on extension cord with other stuff. Not sure it is up to code. Only one smoke detector for the entire house.

Not very clean.

Owner's Response: So sorry you weren’t happy with your stay. The air conditioners have been a welcome addition to the house for sure! There are actually 3 smoke detectors. We are always happy to help when you are here! Next time, let us know of any concerns during your stay and we will do our best to make you happy!

As expected, great for a group, and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 adults and 7 kids enjoyed our stay at the Cottage on the Course. We knew we were renting an old farm house, so our expections were that the house would need some TLC. Other reviews are correct that the upstairs bathroom floor is tilted with water damage to the ceiling in the kitchen below, but no active leaks are present. Additionally, wherever an addition was added to the home there is a change in grade. However, the cottage was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the owners are making some improvements to the property (a few new windows and air conditioning units). Alicia made us feel welcome, but did not intrude on our vacation. The fence in the backyard provides a decent amount of privacy from the restaurant and golf course and it was nice to be able to run over to the clubhouse for ice or any other small thing we needed. The golf course was not super busy and great for newbies and kids. We spent most of our days away from the cottage at nearby Silver Lake and when we returned in the evenings Golden Sands was closing down; by the time we ate dinner and sat down by the bonfire we had the property to ourselves. Great star gazing and we saw plenty of shooting stars. Bring folding chairs for the bonfire. We were lucky a wedding or other event a Golden Sands did not occur during our stay as the event tent is steps from the backyard, and we wouldn't have enjoyed as much privacy. It would be nice if the owners extend the fence along this side of the yard. Our kids had so much fun playing carpet ball, hitting balls at the driving range, and nearby Silver Lake I'm sure we will stay at the cottage again!

Loved this place and loved the people who owned it. They made us feel like a part of their family.

  • 5 of 5

The place reminded me of my house growing up and my grandparents house. The bread bites at the golf course is amazing and so is their pizza. The golf course is fun for families. It is very family friendly. It is very close to Silver Lake, which is also a very amazing place to visit. There is a lot to do. We would definitely go back and stay at this amazing place.
