Car: Recommended

This vacation home is located within Grand Traverse County on Spider Lake. The area contains many Inland Lakes & GT Bay creating a wonderland of water activities and water sports. The Boardman River snakes through the county for canoeing, fly fishing, & tubing opportunities before emptying into GT bay near downtown. TC is the Tart Cherry Capitol of the World + other farm fresh produce can be found seasonally throughout the area . The region is also home to many award winning wineries where you can tour and taste ! Two casinos are in the area w/gaming & entertainment options year round. Winter time brings snow, SNOW & more snow & the state keeps trails groomed for X-C skiing, snowshoeing & snowmobiling + keeps the place beautiful & white - just like a Christmas card picture. While there are many reasons to come to this area of god's country - don't forget to schedule some time for R & R ! The best reason of all ! This map almost shows it's exact spot - sshhh.... it's a secret !

Other Activities: Snow shoeing, X-country skiing, snowmobiling, Kayaking, tubeing, canoeing

Golf: Love to Golf a different place everyday? Would you rather stay 'off the beaten path' ? Why settle for a 'room'....How about a Cabin in the Woods? A Vacation Home on the lake? Would you like to do a little boating or fishing in between rounds? Forget the Hotel on the Miracle Mile! Come stay - in the woods, off the highway and on the lake! You will only feel like you are in the middle of nowhere! There is easy access to town and all the Golf Courses you could possibly want... and they are all a scenic drive away!

Ski: Cross Country Skiing at it's best -- with all the natural snow Grand Traverse County gets, All the State Groomed Trails to use for free ! - just grab your skis or snowshoes and come up to the woods-- get a pot of Chili cooking before you start out and it will be waiting when you get back - forget the 'Miracle Mile' of hotels, motels and restaurants.. stay out here, in the woods and close to nature. Yes, we have downhill slopes nearby if that's your kind of skiing ! There is something for everyone.
