We have stayed at East Silent Resort for several years for our family reunion. We take over much of the resort, renting separate cabins for the week. The Leonards have turned an adequate mom and pop place into a beautiful, quaint resort. They are constantly improving the property and are always ready to serve with bright smiling faces. Seriously--this place... More

Already booked for year #5 at the best lake resort in the Midwest. The accommodations are beautiful and immaculate; I love a clean place to stay! The resort is small, inviting, and a great place to make new friends. My kids refuse to rebook any other week because they want to make sure they see the same people each year.... More

Our family of 10 was there the week following the 4th of July. We had an amazing time. My teenaged kids a were entertained and my younger niece and nephew were entertained as well. The only things we could see improving on is more bed pillows and hooks in bathroom to hang wet suits up. Can't wait to come back... More

This was our sixth visit to the resort. Each year the Resort doesn't disappoint. The cabins continue to be well maintained and the hosts continue to be very gracious. The activities for the kids change just enough to keep them interested and looking forward to what next year might bring. Sometimes this is difficult to do with teenagers. The fishing... More
