About the Property

Generously Sized And Comfortable 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home

We made many upgrades for the 2017 season including new flooring, walls, and furniture, but we still have the property listed at 2016 prices and have weeks available in June and August. New pictures coming soon!!

This lovely three-bedroom, two-bath home is situated on the shore of Spider Lake, which is excellent for fishing, water skiing, swimming, and other water sports. This large home sleeps six or more and has lake views from the living room, dining room, family room and two of the bedrooms. The home has a king bed, a queen bed, and a full bed, and is furnished with many conveniences including laundry, microwave, coffee maker, ice maker, gas fireplace, three TVs, DVD player, and clean linens. Outside you will find extensive decking, your own dock, rowboat, oars, life preservers, gas grill, outdoor furniture, and a firepit.

Owner info

About the owner: We didn't know each other then, but we (George and Susan) both came to up north to Spider Lake as kids during the summer, and we both moved permanently to Traverse City as young adults the first chance we got (a long time ago). We love this lake and are happy to call it home. We own and operate a restaurant/bar just down the road called Peegeo's which is in its 34th year.

Why the Owner Chose Forest Lakes, East Bay Township, MI, USA:
We take pride in our property. It is well maintained, sparkling clean, and very comfortable. Whether you want to fish, ski, golf, hike, swim, gamble, ride a horse, shop, or just kick back on the deck with a glass of local wine and a good book, this property is situated in the right place. The property has over 100' of private frontage on Spider Lake and its own dock, along with a deck right at the water's edge.
