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.

A beautiful home right by the lake. Would make a perfect stay for a family getaway. The house has a small private beach right in the backyard.

A grocery store and several quality restaurants are nearby.
