Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Traverse City

Fully Furnished Home - 3 Bedrooms - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 6)

Welcome home! Rest or recreation...it is all here. We love it here and want to welcome you to this little slice of heaven located on the very best spot of the lake. This fully winterized cobblestone single story ranch sits on a private wooded peninsula with mature white pine; it is filled with all the comforts of home and displays local artwork and stained glass. Miscellaneous games, DVDs, and books will keep kids of all ages busy!

I stayed here with my family and had the best time. The one feature we really appreciated was the privacy of the cottage. We were tucked away by ourselves and felt like we had our own little island. The house was immaculate and the conveniences that were provided were top notch.

This wasn't our first visit to Traverse City but it undoubtedly was the best. We found ourselves returning from a day's activities much earlier than planned to enjoy the cottage and all it had to offer.

Our kids really enjoyed their paddle boats, the campfires and the game selection. We are home now but our thoughts keep going back and lingering over the experience. See you next year!

We loved, loved, Loved this wonderful stone cottage on beautiful Spider Lake. The kids spent all day outdoors and never even missed Cartoon Network! Thanks for making this so welcoming and 'homey' for all your visitors.

Bill, Kelly and gang, Okemos, MI

I am so glad that we came up for the winter. We
had a great time. Grace-MacDonald Park was only
a short distance away and perfect during the day
and even lit up at night to take the kids sledding.
We filled up thermoses with hot cocoa for our
nighttime treks there. We made snowmen and
went crosscountry skiing nearby at TimberRidge
and spent a couple of days skiing at Crystal
Mountain with the kids. It was a great winter
getaway and a convenient location to everything.
We will be back again next year!

We rent a cottage nearly every summer in Traverse City and this was our first time on Spider Lake. This cottage was one of the nicest we have ever rented and it had everything we needed and more. Audrey was great to work with and very accomodating, The lake was beautiful and quiet. It was just a great week all the way around!

Memorial Day Renters

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed at this cottage for six years now, and we still look forward to it every year. A realtor would tell you that it is priceless because of the location. I would tell that it is priceless for that and so much more. There is so much to do here, paddleboat, relax on the hammock, or enjoy a campfire at night. All of this, with the clean and modern comforts of home. The manager of the cottage is very hospitable, and I do not think that anyone would be dissapointed if you chose to stay here!

Great Stay!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Cobblestone Cottage. My family rented this one as well as the one next door from the same owner. I recommend this for a family get together. The rooms were spacious and clean. The dock, row boats and side yard with trees were nice to use with my small children. The view out of the front window of the lake was really nice. I grew up going to Spider Lake and it was fun to bring my small children there - great memories!

A Peaceful Peaceful Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, me, and our two boys (3 and 6) stayed in this cottage for a week in August 2010. This cottage and location exceeded all of our expectations! The cottage was clean, well-equipped, and secluded. Personally, I loved starting each morning sitting on the dock with a hot cup of coffee, just looking out onto the lake and listening to the silence. We absolutely appreciated that the lake was no-wake in the mornings and evenings. The quaint pathway through our private woods to our private fire-ring was amazingly quaint...and our boys' favorite spot to explore. The boys loved digging in the sand outside of the cottage and we all enjoyed the cozy hammock.

The location of the cottage was close enough to Traverse City that we headed into town almost every day, however distant enough that we felt like we were in a very remote locale.

We are returning next year, and our whole family looks forward to making this cottage an annual tradition. Since visiting Bailey's Stone Cottage, whenever my husband or I get stressed out, we try and channel our feeling of relaxation we achieved during that weeklong stay. My boys ask "When are we going back to The Cottage?".

Spider Lake is a beautiful, spring-fed, 459-acre lake with multiple bays, two wide water areas, and 22 miles of shoreline. You can fish one of the best spots on the lake right from the property. Spider Lake is NO WAKE in the morning before 11 AM and in the evening after 7:30 PM to keep the lake extra quiet for fishermen.

A short distance to world-class golfing, delicious restaurants, the sites of Traverse City (children's museum, marinas, Old Town Playhouse, specialty shops), the sounds of Interlochen, casinos, or wine tasting at many local wineries; close to downhill ski resorts and the VASA bike/Nordic ski trail.
