A Home to Relax, Connect & Enjoy Nature

Looking for a place to relax; connect with family and friends; get out and enjoy nature? This house provides everything you need for the vacation you seek: be it active or the gift of down time. It’s a true get-away snuggled in the woods overlooking Silver Lake. Go for a walk on the trails, kayak, and swim out the back door. During the Winter, grab your cross-country skis, or head out to one of the multiple downhill ski areas.

Perhaps you prefer more tranquil at-home activities, like immersing yourself in a great book. Drinking a glass of wine in front of the large stone fireplace. Lingering over meals. And taking a sauna before you call it a night.

Silver Lake Retreat was the home of Lloyd and Susanne Rudolph, India travelers and scholars. The house was always abuzz with cooking, laughter, and conversation. You too can enjoy the vibe. Perfect for families, friends vacationing together, or even a place to host small events.
