Overview

6/24/22 The New Dock is finished and it is the best dock on Spider Lake. See new photos !
Located on a Dirt ( sometimes snow ) 2 track, in the Pere Marquette State Forest, on Spider Lake, off the Beaten Path. No close neighbors ! Ready for some serious R & R ?! WINTER, Fall & Spring Nightly Rentals available. Summer Weekly Rentals are Sunday to Sunday and include a Pontoon Boat to get you out on the water. This adorable cottage is located on a Quiet Bay of All Sports Spider Lake in Grand Traverse County. When you are here, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.. but there is easy access to town.. Traverse City that is ! Bring everything you need, you might not feel like leaving. There is a Restaurant close by and they even deliver - so you really don't need to leave ! But Traverse City is an exciting place and there is lots to do if you choose. Winter rentals must have a 4 x 4 due to "Pop Up" Lake Effect Snow !
* I do have some shorter stays available at the end of the summer 2022: 2 nights: Aug 28,29)A Pontoon Boat is not included in shorter stays but one is available for an extra charge.
