Direct Booking vs. Airbnb? Pros & Cons
Generally speaking, direct bookings are 8 to 15% less than booking via Airbnb. But direct bookings have a much stricter refund policy. The Airbnb algorithm adjusts prices up or down based on supply and demand at any given time.
Direct booking rates are fixed in advance for the super peak, peak, high and low seasons. It is possible to find a last-minute deal if you book via Airbnb, but if you wait too long and there is an event in town or holiday, the Airbnb rates could be significantly higher. Guests with bookings made via Airbnb will enjoy the same access to Silverlaken Infrastructure and receive the same high level of customer service from Silverlaken staff.

Read This Before You Book a Tent
Tents have limited sound dampening properties. While we are serious about the 9 AM to 9 PM quiet hour policy, other guests may be coming and going in the evening hours and campfire conversations, even at a lowered voice, may be heard in the tents. Also be aware that sounds from inside the tents will travel outside the tent. If you are concerned about noise levels or are a sensitive sleeper, please consider booking a rental unit with fixed walls, rather than staying in a tent with very limited sound dampening.
Special Considerations for Families with Small Children
Children of all ages are warmly welcome at Silverlaken. The camp is designed to promote quality time together with family and friends. However, if you have an infant or small child that is likely to cry at some point during the night, as a courtesy to your fellow campers, please book a rental unit with fixed walls rather than staying in a tent with very limited sound dampening. The camp is generally very quiet from 9PM to 9AM with only the sound of crickets and pond frogs filling the night. A crying baby in a tent is likely to be heard across the entire camp, creating an awkward situation for all.
The camp has ponds, lakefront, docks, kayaks, hammocks, horseshoe pits, campfires and a small playground that children enjoy. To ensure the safety of young guests and proper use of infrastructure, even well-behaved children must be directly supervised, at all times, while on the estate.

Book the Entire Estate
Silverlaken is the ideal option for groups wishing to stay together in a private setting at a single location.
The 5-acre site with 430 feet of lake frontage is large enough to comfortably house bigger groups, yet the professionally designed landscaping, with heavy emphasis on green buffer zones, fosters a sense of privacy among the rental units and within the neighborhood.
Weddings, reunions, corporate training, church fellowship and other events are warmly welcome, but please note:
- Preference is given to groups who stay a full week.
- Groups that return each year on the same date are given top preference.
- Groups wishing to book the estate during the peak season holidays are advise to book at least 12 months in advance.
- We are serious about quiet hours, so Silverlaken is not the place to host a party, pre-party, after-party or after-after-party. Sorry.
- To ensure the infrastructure is not stressed, all guests should be registered in advance, even if not spending the night. The group size is constrained by parking, restrooms and other infrastructure issues.
- Guest are not allowed to bring their own tents or RV’s.
- Additional deposits and cleaning fees may be applicable.
