Riverfront Cottage on Rock River

Waterfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
Completely remodeled and updated 975 square foot two bedroom cottage. Featuring 60 inch flat-screen HDTV, fully modernized kitchen with new gas oven, french door refrigerator, new Serta-Perfect queen mattress in master bedroom and pillow-top queen in guest bedroom.
This cozy cottage sleeps four comfortably, and has a full dining room and laundry with washer and dryer.
Amazing river views as soon as you walk in, but this home boasts a three season room furnished with a huge L-shaped sectional couch, surrounded by windows for spectacular views and comfortable relaxation.
Outside we have a large concrete patio fully furnished including a gas grill and even a hammock. There is a large fenced in grass yard leading down a gentle slope to the river where you'll find a nice fishing dock where you will see bald eagles, deer and other wildlife.
Preferred age limit; 26 and above, two day minimum. Due to insurance no swimming is allowed. Pet friendly negotiable. Limit 2 dogs and I do have a $30 nightly pet fee.
Just to be totally open as I did have a guest mention this. About a mile down river from my place they do have a trap shooting range and in the summer and fall you may hear them practicing. If you have any concerns or have questions about when they are shooting please don’t hesitate to contact me. I was able to find the schedule online. On a side note my dog is Very noise sensitive and from that distance it doesn’t seem to bother her as we spend a lot of time there when we can.. please feel free to contact me if you have questions.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing getaway
Really enjoyed a relaxing stay at the Silver Creek Cottage. There were a lot of things to do in the area (Anderson Gardens, breweries, and the Nicholas Conservatory) but I also just enjoyed some downtime. Saw eagles, woodpeckers, and many other beautiful birds from the backyard and dock. Perfect if you’re looking to be outside the city but close enough to do some exploring.

5/5 Excellent

I can honestly say that thuis was the BEST experience that we've ever had! Very clean, high end living and right on the river. Better than most of the 5 Star motels that I have ever stayed at (and I have stayed at many). Hats off to the owner for a job well done!

5/5 Excellent

Great trip
Bill's property was a nice retreat from the city. We had a relaxing weekend at the home and it was a short drive to downtown Rockford for many food options. Great location.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect for relaxation
Wanted someplace fairly close for a change of scenery and to unwind. This was perfect. Great communication from host, so we brought bottled water. Quiet, serene setting.
