Hiking, Dune Rides and Ice Cream? Yes, Please!

After the Polar Vortex of 2019, it’s time to start thinking about warmer weather and planning fun weekend getaways.

My best friend and I always plan a Girls’ Trip in May and a cottage like this one at Silver Lake is the perfect location for a relaxing weekend. The last time I was in Silver Lake with friends, we had a blast hiking, going on a dune ride, and eating ice cream for dinner!


West Michigan Stays is giving away a cottage weekend on Silver Lake to one of our readers, perfect for families, girlfriends, or couples to enjoy each other’s company for a weekend.

Adorable Cottage with Amenities

The winner will stay at the Silver Star Cottage, a quiet, charming three bed (sleeps eight), two full bath home in a private community.

Everything you need to be comfortable is provided – great beds, space to relax, covered front porch, and fully-stocked kitchen. Additional in-home amenities include wifi, cable, flat-screen television and DVD/Blu-ray players, grill, and fire pit.

A short walk down a wooded path leads to the association clubhouse, heated in-ground pool, tennis and basketball courts, and shuffleboard pads. There is also 400 feet of shared beach for you to enjoy along Silver Lake, and Lake Michigan is just a five minute drive away. Take a virtual tour of the cottage here.
