This is truly a little bit of heaven. If you want to relax and enjoy a great family vacation this is the spot!

Quite and cozy
I stayed here with my husband, mother and stepfather. We also had family in the area come over and hang out. We were able to fish right in front of the house which my husband and nephews loved. We brought our pontoon boat and were able to jump in the boat and go out on the lake whenever the weather was clear. Over all the place was great, owners were great, lake was great it was a wonderful vacation.
Wonderful, relaxing space!!
Perfect setup and location. Great owners. We enjoyed a relaxing week.
This was a beautiful, clean, charming cottage! We rented for a week and didn't want to leave. EVERYthing you could need was there and easy to find. The beds were very comfortable, and the setting couldn't be more picturesque. I loaded my kayak into the lake just a few steps from the deck. The owners were terrific, and I'll rent this cottage again!
Very nice place, even nicer owners!
Thank you for choosing our cottage. We enjoyed meeting your family! Enjoy your summer.

Perfect lake getaway for family!
This cottage was the perfect size for our small family of 5 (kids are 9, 3, and 9 months) and Grandpa and Grandma. I was a bit intimidated by the steep, winding driveway, but once we were at the bottom the lot was perfect. Plenty of flat ground and visibility up to the water's edge as well as a great dock, and comfortable edges where water meets land. I never worried about the kiddos playing outside with supervision. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to make meals throughout the week. The location also offered easy enough access to get into town or gas stations. The lake had great fishing and we also enjoyed the paddle boat and kayaks! I hope there is availability when we try to come back next year!
Thank you so much! We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Spider Lake!
