Silver Lake Rental Cottage

Activities & Exploring

Be Prepared !

Be prepared for bad weather .We have a satellite TV with several channels. There is a  DVD player so make sure you take a supply of videos if you must watch TV at all. Better still, pack games, cards and puzzles to keep all of the family occupied when the weather keeps you indoors. Don’t forget to take some warmer clothes, for those cooler evenings that can unexpectedly occur even in mid-summer. On the other hand the summer sun and wind can be blistering hot and dry. Sunscreen and protective clothes are suggested when out swimming or boating for lengthy periods of time.

Outdoor Recreation

    Swimming

A small rock point defines two different swimming areas.

The beach area on the northerly side of the point is sand and rock and has a gentle slope to deeper water (good for children). The rocks are slippery and care is

required when walking on them.  Water shoes are

recommended.

The area to the south of the point drops off to 3 meters or more .

Boating

Open seating design with good back support

We will provide 2 kayaks and paddles  for your use but would request you supply your own life preservers as these should be fitted to the size and weight of the paddler .  There is a small water fall  that is a short paddle away and fun to see .

Campfires

Hot Dog!

Hot Dog!

A campfire pit and adequate wood is available for you . The Fire department considers a campfire to be small and contained in a fire-pit. We have taken out a permit for a campfire from the township. Do drown the fire so it is out  at he end of each day or experience. Cut down no live trees . My experience is to control the fire by sprinkling small amounts of water on it to keep the flames down to no higher than 2 feet. This does not put out the fire and allows you to manage the burn. When the Fire Department issues a “NO BURN BAN” not even a campfire  is allowed .

 Hiking and Jogging

Harding Lane is an excellent trail to hike or jog on. Watch for animals and if there is evidence of bears carry a bell or other noise maker .
