About the Property

3 Bedroom / 1.5 Bath Lakefront Cottage

This Cottage is on the lake at water level and a private setting, only minutes from Traverse City. Cozy comfort is what you will get with this knotty pine rustic feel cottage. There is a large deck to start your morning off with a warm cup of coffee. Enjoy the quiet, watch and listen to wildlife activities from a few feet away on the lakeside deck. Two bedrooms with Queen beds and the third bedroom has two single beds. 1 1/2 baths. Well stocked kitchen with full stove and oven. Sandy bottom waterfront, fire pit and plenty of chairs for relaxing in the sun. The dock is great for fishing off of or for tying up your boat. The lake has several bays and islands to explore with the 2 kayaks and a paddle boat provided for you. A DNR launch site is only a few miles away.

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: During one of our vacations to Spider Lake, we had an opportunity that we did not expect. To purchase a cottage of our own. This is Pohl's Paradise and we would like to share a bit of that with you. This is truly a little bit of heaven. If you want to relax and enjoy a great family vacation this is the spot!

Why the Owner Chose Forest Lakes, East Bay Township, MI, USA:
Location / Size / Function / Feel: We walked into this property and and could not believe the setting. It is perfect for what we wanted to have on Spider Lake. When you walk in the door you know you are up north and the location is private and beautiful.

Quaint, Up North, Boating, Fishing, Traverse City, Wine, Casinos, Sleeping Bear can enjoy a quiet day alone or you can drive 15 minutes to Traverse City and enjoy all of the activities they have to offer. You really have the best of both worlds.
