One of a Kind Unique Island Adventure, Spider Lake
The island provides some of the best sandy beach on Spider Lake and it will become your sole vacation site as no one else lives on the island. The only cabin is both rustic and modern with a large refrigerator and flat top electric stove. WI-FI wireless internet is on site. A large flat screen digital TV with local channels and DVD player is included. The cabin is completely furnished and will sleep 8, although privacy is limited due its open floor plan. A large front porch and deck, plus a lakeside deck are great for gatherings. The island features several picnic tables for dining. A canoe, kayak, row boat and paddle boat are included for your use. You are allowed use of a pontoon boat if a responsibility waiver is signed. Lots of water toys for the kids. Shower facilities are provided outside the main cabin and are clean and convenient. Parking is available for two cars at the owners home about 1/3 of a mile away. This is an island paradise from which you will not want to leave. It is wonderful for children and adults alike as everyone can find room to relax and explore. Horseshoe courts and several other games are on the island. The island also has many areas for tent camping or overflow sleeping and many little nooks for space to yourself. A brief description, such as this, can not adequately explain the island amenities. It will truly be a matchless experience. This, one of a kind, island is available because it helps the retired owners pay the island expenses. The East end of the island has a gate that must be opened which affords additional privacy from an occasional boater parking on the nearby sandbar. The island will be available for no more than 6 weeks during the months of June-August. We interlace our island time between guests so an exact calendar is hard to generate. A first come, first serve basis is used to reserve your vacation dates.
Rent is $2750.00 per week and is discounted for multiple weeks and returning guests. Check-in is at 3 PM and check out is 10 AM on Saturdays, unless otherwise arranged. A $500.00 reservation/booking fee must be paid to reserve your dates. Payment in full is required on arrival. Shorter stays may be allowed at the last moment, but generally the island is rented on a weekly basis.
As soon as the $500.00 booking fee is paid, your reservation will lock-in. The booking fee will become your refundable damage deposit. We would anticipate a full return upon your departure.
Spider Lake is an all sports lake 10 miles SE of Traverse City, conveniently located in the heart of vacation land. We hope you can make Treasure Island your summer getaway. The island is safe for children and pets, as there are no cars.
We understand how important it is to make your vacation perfect, so we will do everything in our power to insure your vacation is everything you would expect. Your vacation investment will not be taken lightly.
Since we spend much of our time on the island during non rental periods., we may be able to accommodate shorter or last minute reservations. We rent the island for only six prime time weeks.

Additional information about rental rates
- Taxes Not included
We prefer to rent by the week or longer, but will consider shorter stays when time periods permit. Our normal rental is Saturday to Saturday, but Friday, Saturday and Sunday weekends are available if the following week is not already reserved. We prefer shortened stays be booked within a Saturday to Saturday time slot so as not to hinder the next full week rental. A discount is available for more than 1 week.
$2750.00/wk or the arranged payment in full at arrival. Please call for extended stay rates and payment terms. Your booking fee reverts to a damage fee and will be returned when you leave. So far, after 4 years of renting, we have never collected damages.
Policy available by contacting owner when booking.

Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: Sue and I are now retired and spend much our time on the island during the summer weeks. We reserve time for ourselves and family, therefore it is difficult to keep an accurate calendar. If you are planning a last minute vacation, possibly we can accommodate your time frame by moving family time around. Those that have reserved dates know what they are and we have them locked in on our on-line booking calendar.
Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
The Traverse City area is a haven for tourists and offers many venues for fun. The island is our preferred residence and we believe you will love as much as we do. We have lived on Spider lake since 1974 and treasure the lake as much as our private island retreat. The morning solitude is is a favorite time for us. The island provides maximum privacy from neighbors. The island is directly across the lake from our house and this is your lakeside departure and parking location.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You will experience the full gamut of life on an island. Everywhere you look is water. The beach areas are safe for children, but youngsters will still require close supervision. Two swim rafts are provided. It is about a 5 minute ride by boat to your car. The island has been a longtime favorite summer destination for many. We do not to rent it for more than 6 prime time weeks per year. Pets are free to swim and roam. It is a wonderland for pets and children and comes without worry of cars or roads. The inclusion of your personal pontoon boat and the ability to bring your pets makes Treasure Island quite affordable. Read our feedback and rent with confidence. Water Trampolines, Jet Skis and Ski Boats are available on the lake as rentals by other parties.
