We were only there for a short time, but it was perfect! The house, the boat, the lake and all the other activities in the area make for a great vacation. Next year, we do a week!!!

We had the opportunity to stay at this cottage during a fall color tour through Michigan. The pictures that are posted on the website are exactly how the cottage looks. We found it to be very clean with all of the comforts of home. The view across the lake was stunning with yellow, orange and red trees. It made us want to stay at the cottage instead of exploring the Traverse City area.

Although the dock had been taken in for the winter, my husband still did a little bit of fishing from the shore. About 15 feet from the shore line, a 2 foot pike teased him by just hanging motionless while my husband cast all about it. You can see the fish in the crystal clear water from the deck which sits a couple of stories above. My husband would have loved to fish the lake on a boat (which had been winterized and is available during the summer.)

I do have to agree with a previous poster that additional towels are necessary if you are staying a week as there are no laundry facilities available. And it can get a bit noisy in the lower level sleeping area as one of the beds is on the other side of the wall from the room which houses the water heater and furnace. I ended up sleeping in the living room because I am a light sleeper and the noise bothered me too much.

On the last night of our stay, the large, single residence (Spider Lake Retreat) across the lake from us ended its stay by putting on an hour long fireworks display. We were able to watch from the comfort (and warmth) of the living room and this perfectly capped off our lovely stay at Pinewood Shores. We would recommend it to others.

My husband and myself and another adult couple enjoyed a week on Spider Lake. Kathy was very easy to work with and made the rental experience simple.

The positives of this home: amazing lake view, very clean and comfortable home, quiet neighborhood, excellent internet access, very nice grill. The deck is great and we all enjoyed lots of time out there. We didn't utilize either of the water crafts but they were very accessible had we wanted to.

The negatives: although linens were provided, there were not enough to get us through the week so we had to do laundry and no facilities on site, I recommend packing a few extra washcloths and towels. We also ran out of toilet paper and paper towels mid-week. The couple staying in the basement apartment reported that it was pretty noisy down there during the nighttime, probably the water conditioner. Although the home has cable, it has very few channels and while no one goes on vacation to watch tv, we had a few rainy days so hung out at the house more than we expected.

Of note is that both bathrooms are on the main level so guests staying in the downstairs bedroom will need to utilize the bathroom off of the main living area.

One thing I was surprised with based on my experience with other rentals, there were no condiments in the kitchen (ketchup, mustard, sugar, etc). While I would not expect an owner to supply these items, my experience has been that often ketchup, mustard, butter, sugar are left in the fridge from guest to guest. Again, I would not expect the owner to supply food and perhaps all other guests take everything with them.

Strongly recommend the local restaurant Peegeo's... great pizza, wings, and mexican food and very relaxed atmosphere. And the little farmers market near the house has excellent ice cream and locally grown fruit and veggies.

Overall, a very good experience.

We stayed at the beautiful Pinewood Shores this June! It was lovely! Everything about it was so beautiful! We can't say enough wonderful things about how clean, beautiful and perfect it was. The lake is crystal clear and the fishing is AMAZING!! The boat was a special blessing! The view from the house is breathtaking! It was quiet and relaxing and just the perfect vacation. Our teenage girls loved every minute, too! We will be back for sure!!! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!!!
