Pure Michigan

  • 5 of 5

First time on Spider Lake and Ann and Bob were great hosts. Spent time with us on arrival to make sure everything was good. Cabin was well stocked with every amenity we needed. Bob and Ann took us out on their pontoon one evening for a boat ride. Will definitely return.

Wonderful place on Spider Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Spider Lake. The house had everything that our family of four needed and the location couldn't have been better: You have the peacefulness of Spider Lake, which was great for our children, plus Traverse City is a short drive away and Sleeping Bear Dunes isn't too far away either. Thanks!

We had a wonderful time as a family.

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything that we needed, and the owners were amazing. They were there immediately if we needed anything, and were quick to respond to inquiries.

We loved having access to the canoe and kayaks, and there were plenty of places to sit and enjoy the surroundings. We will definitely use this house again whenever we return to the Traverse area.

Pictures don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

Ann and Bob were amazing. They helped us figure out great local spots to eat, Bob helped us find fish with his local knowledge and he even took us out on the big lake one day on his boat. They were just awesome. The rental was beautiful and in a nice quiet location on the lake. Pictures don't do it justice, its very clean and has everything you need to cook with and just eat in. They have 2 grills, one gas and one charcoal down on the beach. They also have a nice firepit down there as well. The rental has two kayaks, rowboat and a paddle boat. We brought our boat and the dock had more than enough space. The lake is loaded with Pike, I caught anywhere from 6-10 a night. I highly recommend this rental! Thanks Ann and Bob for everything!

Wonderful, relaxing week on Spider Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Northern Michigan. We decided to join our oldest son who now lives in Michigan - and venture north for a relaxing family vacation. What a great choice we made! Ann and Bob were truly wonderful, even allowing us to get in a day early. The house was immaculate, the deck - both upper and lower, allowed us to spend most of our time outside. Our 3 boys caught some pretty impressive fish right off the dock. We kayaked every day and even rented a jet ski for a day. Spider Lake is the perfect size for water sports, fishing, cruising around and very quiet after 8pm, just when you want to grab a glass of wine and watch the sunset. We will truly cherish this memorable vacation. Thank you Ann and Bob.
