traveler reviews for this traverse city cottage rental

Spider Lake Rental

Review submitted: August 26, 2014   Date of arrival: July 28, 2014

Beautiful, very clean & well-kept property with great views of the lake from the upper & lower decks. The lower deck was extremely inviting. We really enjoyed spending the mornings on the lakefront drinking our coffee and listening to the loons. The water was nice & warm, clean, great for swimming or just dunking your feet. We had fun canoeing and fishing. Great location, within 10-15 min of Traverse City. It's also close enough for day trips to Sleeping Bear Dunes & the other quaint towns in the area for hiking, shopping, or sight-seeing. Overall, wonderful place to stay!

Owners response: Thanks, it helps to let others know what you liked about the cottage.

Idyllic Setting

Review submitted: July 30, 2014   Date of arrival: July 19, 2014

It can be very difficult to find rentals that offer private wooded lots and dramatic waterfront views; this property offers both. Set in a cove with great SE views of the lake, my family started our mornings on the new waterfront decking with a good book and a cup of coffee. We took advantage of everything the property offers: swimming in the warm, clear water off the dock; diving off the float; kayaking in and out of the many coves; dinners on the large shaded deck and s’mores over the fire pit by the water. Our one cool day was spent shopping along Front Street in downtown Traverse City. Thanks for sharing your cottage with us; it was the highlight of our summer!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: It makes me happy when my guests enjoy the cottage as much as I do.

perfect family get away

Review submitted: July 20, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

Our family of 5 just came home from our 11th year staying at this Spider Lake Cottage. Our first year the kids were 1, 3 and 5 yrs. old, now they are all teens. We absolutely love it. There is plenty of space in the cottage, everything we could possibly need and beautiful views of the lake. The new kitchen is a wonderful added bonus. Down at the beach it is clean, peaceful, the water is warm. There are plenty of activities including the row boat, kayak, water trampoline, fire pit, fishing and just hanging out on the beach or new deck. There are many things to do nearby ie. downtown Traverse City, canoeing on the Manistee River (I would recommend Chippewa Landing because its not crowded) and lots of hiking. We love the "Beautiful Spider Lake" cottage and plan to come every summer!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers

Owners response: This family is what the cottage is all about. They are welcome anytime!
