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.

Wonderful Michigan vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful vacation at Spider Lake. Our family greatly enjoyed the lovely lake house and beautiful outdoor space. If you are looking to relax by the lake, in the lake or on the lake, this is definitely the house. My husband and I will treasure watching our young boys swimming off the sandy shore while we lounged and enjoyed the sun and Michigan beauty! I will definitely be recommending this house to anyone heading to Michigan. We are so happy we chose an inland lake rather than something along the Bay or Lake Michigan! Thanks Bob and Ann!

Spider Lake (and these owners) are terrific!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in late July and had a wonderful time. The house is super clean, beautifully decorated and the kitchen is very well appointed. Master BR bed was really comfy and I heard no complaints from my son in the guest room downstairs. The multiple decks give everyone a great spot to sit outdoors, sun or shade lovers alike! Sitting on the top most deck feels like being in a tree house with a great view of the lake and dock below. We loved the swimming platform, the fire pit and the easy water access.

Traverse City was fun to explore and we appreciated all the recommendations and suggestions the owners gave us. This was really a perfect vacation spot and we loved every minute of it! Hopefully, we'll be back next summer!

We stayed here for a week in July. The house was very nice and clean, and there's a great second story deck that's perfect for hanging out on in the evening. We like to cook, and the kitchen was well stocked with good cookware and knives. And of course, the lake is beautiful!
