                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1967

                      About the owner: Our cottage has been in the family for more then forty years and three generations. Many fond memories have taken place at Spider Lake. It is our hope that your family will enjoy your vacation and make new memories.

                      Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
                      My parents purchased our cottage in 1967. I spent all of my summers during my teenage years on Spider Lake. My own children have summered since birth at the lake. Our beach sand is excellent for small children to play in. To put it in my husband's own words when he came home from a business trip in Japan, 'I knew we had one of the most popular and beautiful resort areas in the world to spend our summers, when I saw Traverse City, MI on the Departure Board at the airport in Tokyo!'

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      While staying at the cottage don't miss visiting Ranch Rudolph just minutes away for horseback riding, tubing & canoeing. The local hangout for great pizza or a mouth watering skirt steak is Peego's and it has nightly entertainment on the outside deck on weekends. A drive up the Peninsula between East and West Bay to the Light House is a must. Stop to enjoy great food at Old Mission Tavern while viewing their many works of art by local artists in the restaurant and gallery in the back. Then enjoy a drink or gourmet dining while the sun sets over West Bay at the Boat House or Bowers Harbor Inn.
