About the Property
Log Cabin for One Couple with Hot Tub - Bath w/shower
. Great pontoon boating lake with lots of exploring to do. When you are here, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but there is easy access to town.. Traverse City that is. Also nearby in the Pere Marquette State Forest you will find: Hiking Trails, Snow Shoeing and X-C Trails, & Mountain Biking Trails. Ranch Rudolf is a short drive away for Horse Back Riding, Canoeing & Tubing on the Boardman River. We do Nightly & Weekend Rentals Sept - June. Weekly Rentals Sat to Sat in the Summer. Let me know what you are looking for... Kathy
Summer Weekly Rental: Bring the family up for some quality time. Bring them to a place that time forgot. Remember going up north to the lake as a child? Well bring your children to the same place. Bring them to a place for some good ole fashion R & R. Bring your favorite board games, books, deck of cards, beach toys and fishing poles. I bet they don't ask for a TV all week... a miracle... After fishing, and swimming and chasing each other around, after dinner and a bonfire with roasted marshmallows and s,mores... they'll hit the hay and never even notice NO TV . Rainy day -- that''s when the games come out... or a trip to town to the Children's Museum - waves of wonder, or just a wet day outside... even if it wasn't raining, they'd be wet ... right ? !!! Rainy days are when the fish bite best... so hopefully you'll get at least one while you are here.
No pets allowed on the property, not even to visit, please and thank you.
Fall Weekends: Come up to the North Woods for a Color Tour Weekend - everywhere you go up here is a 'Color Tour' - cruise the lake on a pontoon boat ( rentals available here ) visit a winery, casino, or fabulous restaurant - we have plenty in the area. Hiking and Mountain Bike Trails nearby for a real color tour thru the Pere Marquette State Forest. This cabin will accommodate one couple, and we have 7 cabins here - and we have other accommodations on Spider Lake for larger groups too.
Girls Weekend Retreats: Did you know that 'Girls just wanna have fun! ' Well gather up your friends, sisters, mothers and neighbors! and choose either a Scrapbook Weekend Retreat - ask me for info! This is where you get to have all the fun, work on a project or take a class and learn something new with all the girls! No cooking, No cleaning, No husbands or kids (bless their hearts!) The work room is open from Friday 12 N til Sunday 3pm - come and go as you please.... Six fabulous meals provided! With Dessert, Treats, Snacks & Beverages. Eight weekends per year to choose from - contact me and I'll set you up!

This Log Cabin at Harolds Resort is located on a 2 acre private peninsula surrounded by Spider Lake on 3 sides. A 459 acre 'all sports lake', Spider Lake can be found within the Pere Marquette State Forest. Located in Grand Traverse County along w/ many other inland lakes, we are also close to East & West GT Bay. The Boardman River snakes thru the county providing fly fishing, canoeing and tubing opportunities & then empties into West Grand Traverse Bay near downtown Traverse City. All kinds of water, lake and river water activities can be done in an endless water wonderland - Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. Being the Tart Cherry Capitol of the World means not only cherries for our area, but also all kinds of berries, apples, peaches, sweet corn and all can be found at roadside stands & our downtown Farmers Market approx July - October. With so many things to do, you might forget to do one of my favorite things.. Nothing! Ask about other vacation rentals we manage on 'Spider'
Other Activities: snow shoeing, snowmobiling, ice skating
Golf: Love to Golf a different place everyday? Would you rather stay 'off the beaten path' ? 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 - and so will your Fireplace, your Hot Tub and your Flannel Sheets and Down Comforter -- 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.
Year Purchased: 1990
About the owner: We came to Harolds Resort on vacation from San Diego in the Fall of 1989. We fell in Love with Traverse City and Harolds Resort. We moved here in the Spring of 1990, with our son Dieter who was almost 2 years old and 8 1/2 years later our son Hunter was born. UPDATE: It is with a broken heart that I tell you of the passing of my husband Rolf on Friday, January 29, 2016. He passed unexpectedly and peacefully. He loved Harolds Resort as much as I do, and I will continue to run the Resort with extra help from my boys, and local contractors. His spirit is alive and well everywhere I go. In and around the Cabins and Resort property, I see his handy work, his blood, sweat and tears. Our goal was to always have a place where families and couples could come and spend quality time together, doing the simple things, and that goal has never been stronger or more important. If you knew Rolf, don’t be sad, be happy for what he did have and what he left behind, because he left it to me, to share with you... Kathy
Why the Owner Chose Forest Lakes, East Bay Township, MI, USA:
While we were here on vacation in 1989 we were telling the owner how much we loved Traverse City and Harolds Resort and he said - if you love it so much, why don't you buy it ? !! Just seemed like a good fit and an adventure and a great place to raise a family. And we were right.. and now we are GRAND PARENTS of twin boys ! Boy how time flies when you are having fun !
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Location, Location, Location... at the end of the road, off the highway, in the woods and on the lake. Surrounded by water on 3 sides. There is just not many places left that can give you the peace, quiet and solitude with easy access to all that downtown Traverse City and the surrounding area have to offer. We have TWO of these "Hot Tub Cabins" each has it's own personal hot tub on the screened in porch. Outside - yet semi private. Eddie Murphy was right when he said: "it's HOT in the Hot Tub" !!
