We stayed at Silver Lake Cottages in July 2009 and will be going back this summer for sure! What we liked best about it is that you get the privacy of your own cottage and spend your own time on the beach and dock, but can get people together for a volleyball game or other activities. So makes it a good option for 1 or 2 couples, or a family. It's also possible to rent multiple cottages which we are going to try to do this year.
The grounds are well kept and they allow use of kayaks, canoes, etc. They don't allow jetskis but that wasn't an issue for us and other people and regular motor boats. They might have been cottage owners but not sure.
There were other families there and we just had our first little guy a few months ago and are excited to take him up this year. The beach is perfect as it is shallow at the start, then about 4-5 feet at the buoy line, then drops off nice and deep so great for swimming and no weeds.
Bring some fire wood as they were out when we were there but I think they might stock the firepit area sometimes. And best to bring frosty plastic mugs as they don't allow glass by the beach!
