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.

We came to Spider Lake in 1989 and fell in love with this area and bought Harolds Resort on Spider Lake and later acquired Wilkins Landing II. We have raised our 2 boys here and now have twin grandsons. I would not want to live anywhere else. Kathy
