Very nice property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! A fun, much needed family getaway. Unplugged, even though there was access. Great views! Very nice accommodations, and we loved exploring the lake and having use of kayaks and other toys. The place is small, with only one bedroom and bathroom, but we managed fine with 6 people. We also liked the location, being a short drive from the bays, peninsulas and Sleeping Bear Dunes area. Owner was very nice, helpful and responsive.

Would love to stay again next summer!

Spider Lake stay with my dog

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 7 day stay at Spider Lake. Thanks so much for allowing dogs at your cabin. My chocolate lab had a great time swimming in Spider Lake. Was even able to get the dog on the paddle boat for a little ride around the lake. The cabin was nice and quite which is what I was looking for. Cabin was neat and clean and was only 15 minutes ride to downtown Traverse City. I would recommend this cabin if you want to get away and relax at a good rate and you can bring the dog which is a big plus for me.

Outstanding Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this place. The kids loved sleeping in the "separate" cabin and we loved have two different beaches to use. That way we could follow the sun. Cabin is in great shape. Just a lovely place.

4th of July 2012 Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The location and view of the lake were great at this cottage! The atmosphere was very relaxing and enjoyable. The air-conditioned cottage was an added bonus with the 95+ degree weather we had that week. We loved using the paddle boat/kayaks etc that the cottage provided. We loved that this cottage was a pet-friendly rental and our golden retriever had a great time too! We would definitely recommend this cottage to friends or relatives. We also had a great time at the local restaurant, Peegeos.

Private Waterfront Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Private & Clean waterfront cabin. The owner was very accommodating to all of our needs. The cabin was well maintained. It offered Ice cold air conditioning. The waterfront property was surrounded by beautiful old trees,and the lake view was amazing! All the property owners in the area were very friendly. You are only about 10-15 minutes from downtown Traverse City that offers everything you would want, from shopping malls, eateries, & fun things to do. We highly recommend this property for that get away from it all & relax vacation with anything you need available in this cabin!
