Overview

About the property

3 bedroom 2 bath updated cottage/home.

The cottage/home is on Silver Lake, which is one of the premier lakes in West Michigan, only 15 miles from Downtown Grand Rapids and 5 miles from Downtown Rockford. The home has about 1700 sq. feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, plus a large 3 season porch. The cottage is in a quiet and safe neighborhood on a large flat lot with 80 feet of sandy beach with a fire pit for gathering with your family and friends. The property also includes a 300 foot deep back lot with a large driveway and garage.

Silver Lake is an all sports lake with about 225 acres that is in the top 5% of lakes in Michigan in water clarity. The home is in a protected area from westerly winds and faces southeast so you will enjoy waking up to beautiful sunrises and sunsets that can be seen from the water.

A large dock is included with platform on the end with a relaxing bench and swim ladders. A 4 person paddle boat, 2 kayaks, and 2 stand up paddle boards are provided for your enjoyment. The property also has a basketball hoop, corn toss, croquet, horseshoes, volleyball, bocce, 4 bikes, water/sand toys, life jackets, etc. are provided for your use.

A pickle ball court was recently added to the back lot and all the equipment is provided. Have some great fun playing the fastest growing sport in the USA.

A newer 21 foot pontoon boat with a 4 stroke motor is available for rent during your stay. Please inquire about pricing.

Almost anything you would need for your stay is included, except for food and adult beverages.

There are numerous recreational activities in area with many parks and bike trails close by. Golf courses are located close by with Silver Lake Country club located adjacent to the lake that is open to the public. A variety of wonderful shops and restaurants are located within 5 miles of the cottage. In the winter Cannonsburg Ski Resort is 2 miles to the south of the home.

I also have another 3 bedroom, 2 bath rental on the lake about 12 houses away. The VRBO # is 1351695

About Brian DeGraaf

Life long resident of the Grand Rapids area. This is the 3rd home that I have had the pleasure of living on Silver Lake. Proud father of 2 adult children. Career change has prompted living in Portland, OR part of the time. This has allowed the opportunity to offer my home for your family and friends enjoyment. My mother and 2 brothers also have homes on the lake. I also have another vacation rental on Silver Lake, the Oregon coast, and a 36 foot Grand Banks boat for recreational charters in Oregon.

Brian DeGraaf purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Brian DeGraaf chose Rockford

Beautiful part of Michigan where it has the feel of being in Northern Michigan, but close to amenities and only 15 miles from downtown Grand Rapids. A short 5 miles from quant, historic, and charming Rockford. The home is on a quiet and safe street close to a turnaround with plenty of room outside for many activities. The home shows pride of ownership and offers a variety of amenities for guests of all ages.

What makes this cottage unique

Lots of space outside to spread out. My brother lives next door is very helpful if you need anything if I'm not around. The best customer service is an absolute for me.

Best place ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great weekend at Brian's place. It has absolutely everything you could possibly want to make your stay there perfect. Wish we could have stayed longer The pontoon was awesome, The boys caught fish from the end of the dock and the campfires each night were memorable. Thanks for having us. We will be back for sure!!!

Very relaxing, well supplied for the waterfront. Peaceful setting.

  • 4 of 5

Quiet private lake. There is a nice mix of shade and sun, grassy and sandy beach. Lots of outdoor seating, even at the end of the dock for quiet moments at the beginning and end of day. The pontoon was great for a relaxing time together each evening. The 3 season room was a favorite gathering place. It was the perfect find for what our family was looking for. We would highly recommend it or come again ourselves.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation!! Enjoyed the use of the pontoon as well as the paddle boards and kayaks. It has a nice beach area and fire pit. Brian was very accommodating and replied to any questions/concerns immediately. His brother Dave is next door and was very friendly and helpful as well. The town of Rockford is a short drive away with a nice variety of restaurants and unique shops downtown. Will definitely consider renting this property again!!

Great family memories made

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as listed. Brain was fantastic and answered any questions prior to our stay. Dave, Brian’s brother and next door neighbor, was always available for any questions we had. Beds were all very comfy. We had three small families and had plenty of room for all. We also rented the pontoon and went for many morning fishing trips and evening sunsets. The grandkids were off the charts excited with the ice cream truck that stops in front of the cottage on Mondays and Fridays! We lost count of all the bass caught off the pontoon and end of the dock. Loved the accessibility to the amazing washer/dryer. The only suggestion, if doing much cooking, would be to bring along some mixing bowls.

Our whole family gives it ‘two thumbs up’!!

Wonderful lake cottage for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This rental was fabulous - immaculate and tons of amenities (pontoon boat, kayaks, paddle boat, paddle boards, sand toys, picnic table, grill, cable, wi fi, comfy beds, ...) Would highly recommend this place as a family get away. My grandkids didn't want to leave at the end of our week.
