Property description

If you are looking for a Full Service Vacation Home big enough for 'the whole gang' - this is it ! With all the Modern Conveniences in an Up North Lodge Setting. Built in 2001 the house has a current open floor plan and amenities you won't find in most other vacation homes in the area. Central A/C which is not needed often, but comes in handy when you do. All bedding - sheets, blankets, pillows etc.. and bath & kitchen towels are provided. Bring your Beach Towels and Bath Supplies. FIVE nice size bedrooms & a loft for sleeping arrangements. Master Bedroom & Bath has it's own 8 foot glass sliding door to the deck. Also has a jacuzzi tub in the bedroom, & a large walk in shower in the bathroom w/a glass block wall between them. Three other bedrooms are near bathroom # 2. And the Loft is above the Dining & Kitchen and overlooks the Living Room & All glass front overlooking the lake and deck. The Lower level is 900 sf - Rec Room, Large Bedroom & 3rd full bath and walks out to deck w/lakeview, and stairs down to the water. For a total of 3200 finished sq ft. NO PETS NO SMOKING please.

This house is situated right next door to Harolds Resort and has access to it's Beach - The Best Beach on Spider Lake ! Sandy, Shallow, Safe & Warm - located a 1-2 minute walk from the house to the point of the private peninsula where the Beach is located. Also you have access to the HR fish cleaning hut if you would like to clean your catch and have a fish fry. There are several choices for having a fire in the evening.. HR has a community bon fire pit down by the lake shore, you have your own 'chiminea' on your deck ( a little cast iron fireplace ) and a bon fire pit in the back yard and there is a wood burning fireplace in the Living Room ( see pictures.. ).

Spider Lake is a 459 Acres All Sports Lake with 'fast boating' limited to the hours of 11 am - 7: 30 pm. So the morning and evening hours are quiet and great for fishing or just going for a pontoon boat cruise. Even during the middle of the day, there are places on the lake that are no wake all the time, and you can find a quiet place for some R & R or fishing. I say the lake is shaped like a 'squashed spider' with some big sections, bays, coves, and long legs, you can go out every day and get lost in a different place !

'No more expected tips, no ...do not disturb signs, no knocks at the door - Say Hello to a whole house !This spacious vacation home is located within Grand Traverse County on Spider Lake. The area contains many Inland Lakes and GT Bay creating a wonderland of water activities and water sports. The Boardman River snakes through the county for canoeing, fly fishing, & tubing opportunities before emptying into GT bay near downtown. TC is the Tart Cherry Capitol of the World and other farm fresh produce can be found seasonally throughout the area . The region is also home to many wineries where you can tour and taste ! Two casinos are in the area offer gaming and entertainment options year round. Winter time brings snow, SNOW and the state land keeps trails groomed for X-C skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling - and to keep the place beautiful and white - just like a Christmas card picture. Traverse City is also home to many Festivals including The TC Film Festival, The National Cherry Festival, Micro-Brew & Music Festival and so many more. Nearby Sleeping Bear Dunes was voted Most Beautiful Place in America in 'll on Good Morning America and we know why.. soon you will too ! Downtown has the best Shopping and Restaurants - something for everyone. And when you are here at The Lake House - at the end of the road, off the highway, in the woods, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere - with easy access to town and all the above. This is a No smoking house and No pets at anytime please.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: In the Fall of 1989, we came to Harolds Resort and loved it so much we bought the place and moved here from San Diego. Seven years later we bought the property next door and started building this home in late 2000. In June 2001, we moved in and raised out boys in this house. UPDATE; It is with a broken heart that I tell you of the passing of my husband Rolf on Friday, January 29, 2016. He passed unexpectedly and peacefully. He loved Harolds Resort as much as I do, and I will continue to run the Resort with extra help from my boys, and local contractors. His spirit is alive and well everywhere I go. In and around the Cabins and Resort property, I see his handy work, his blood, sweat and tears. Our goal was to always have a place where families and couples could come and spend quality time together, doing the simple things, and that goal has never been stronger or more important. If you knew Rolf, don’t be sad, be happy for what he did have and what he left behind, because he left it to me, to share with you... Kathy

Why the Owner Chose Forest Lakes, East Bay Township, MI, USA:
The best of all worlds.. on the lake, in the woods, quiet, private, secluded with a "in the middle of nowhere feeling" with easy access to town, wineries, breweries, restaurants, shopping, Sleeping Bear Dunes and so much more.. Nice place to come home to after a day of exploring.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You have heard.. Location... Location .. .Location - and that is what you have here... At the end of the road, off the highway and in the woods - next to Harolds Resort with The Best Beach on Spider Lake. A true Up North On The Lake Location ! Harolds Resort sticks out into Spider Lake like a big thumb - with a nice sandy, safe, warm beach on that point. And that is just a a 1-2 minute walk from this house which is next door. We have left as many of the beautiful trees as we can for that "in the woods" feeling.
