Peaceful, Beautiful, Thoughtful

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation home! Very quiet neighbors and lake, as boats are only allowed above idle from 10am to 7pm on Spider Lake. This hidden gem is only about 15 minutes from Traverse City, but far enough away from the crowds. It's a beautiful house, with 2 decks (one right by the house with the barbeque(s) and a large picnic table and benches, and another about 5 steps down with an outdoor dining table, six chairs, and a fire pit), and a sand pit for the kids to play in on the way down to the dock, swimming area, and newly renovated swim island. Inside is an open concept kitchen, dining, and living area, with a full guest bathroom and washer/dryer. The spacious master bedroom and on-suite are also on the first floor. The owners put in a new full bathroom upstairs for the second guest bedroom and bunkroom. It's a great add from the last time we stayed here. You can tell the owners really put some thought into making your experience and enjoyable one that will make you come back year after year (like us). There's ample towels for both swimming and bathing, first aid kits both in the main house and boathouse. There are fishing poles, water toys, floaties, and toys to use in the sand pit for the kids. Really an all around great experience. Did I mention the views? Beautiful. Most highly recommended!

Laura was extremely hospitable! Her home was welcoming, comfortable, and had a beautiful spot on Spyder Lake. I would love to come back to stay!

Great visit to Spider Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in our stay at this property. The two queen bedrooms were nicely decorated with clean comfortable bedding. The “7 Dwarves” room, while not ideal for our family, would be great for those traveling with a lot of children. We appreciated the three full bathrooms, which were well maintained with many of the essential supplies included. The kitchen was well stocked for a rental. The light fixture above the sink hangs a bit low for any tall folks in your group.

The beach area is not directly on the water, but the dock and swimming area were great fun. Be prepared to get some cardio exercise as there are a lot of stairs between the lake and the house. The basketball hoop in the driveway got plenty of use and was a welcome surprise for the youngest member of our group.

The owner, Laura, kept in contact with us regarding some issues with the property. She was easy to contact, returning our calls almost instantly and taking care of any concerns we had.

Overall, we had a wonderful time staying here. We would not hesitate to rent this house again for future visits to the area.

This little piece is heaven is just what our family needs! We look forward to it ever year!

  • 5 of 5

This home is simply charming. We are a family of four and we stay with another family of four. The bedrooms are comfortable and clean and the room upstairs with the twin beds is perfect for our girls to hang out and create a space of their own! We absolutely love the new addition of the bathroom upstairs. Spider Lake is peaceful and calm and TC is only about 20 minutes away! We have made so many family memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you Laura for allowing us to create such a wonderful week for our children!
