Traverse City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Log Cabin for One Couple with Hot Tub - Bath w/shower

Harold's Resort is located off the highway, in the woods, on the lake - a private peninsula - surrounded by water on 3 sides w/7 '1950's' LOG 'housekeeping' Cabins. Extra quiet, private & secluded. Safe for Families, Quiet for Couples. Great for fishing and swimming. Spider Lake is an all sports lake with 459 acres. No wake before 11 am & after 7:30 pm each day ensures the lake is extra quiet in the morning and evening

. Great pontoon boating lake with lots of exploring to do. 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. Also nearby in the Pere Marquette State Forest you will find: Hiking Trails, Snow Shoeing and X-C Trails, & Mountain Biking Trails. Ranch Rudolf is a short drive away for Horse Back Riding, Canoeing & Tubing on the Boardman River. We do Nightly & Weekend Rentals Sept - June. Weekly Rentals Sat to Sat in the Summer. Let me know what you are looking for... Kathy

Summer Weekly Rental: Bring the family up for some quality time. Bring them to a place that time forgot. Remember going up north to the lake as a child? Well bring your children to the same place. Bring them to a place for some good ole fashion R & R. Bring your favorite board games, books, deck of cards, beach toys and fishing poles. I bet they don't ask for a TV all week... a miracle... After fishing, and swimming and chasing each other around, after dinner and a bonfire with roasted marshmallows and s,mores... they'll hit the hay and never even notice NO TV . Rainy day -- that''s when the games come out... or a trip to town to the Children's Museum - waves of wonder, or just a wet day outside... even if it wasn't raining, they'd be wet ... right ? !!! Rainy days are when the fish bite best... so hopefully you'll get at least one while you are here.

No pets allowed on the property, not even to visit, please and thank you.

Fall Weekends: Come up to the North Woods for a Color Tour Weekend - everywhere you go up here is a 'Color Tour' - cruise the lake on a pontoon boat ( rentals available here ) visit a winery, casino, or fabulous restaurant - we have plenty in the area. Hiking and Mountain Bike Trails nearby for a real color tour thru the Pere Marquette State Forest. This cabin will accommodate one couple, and we have 7 cabins here - and we have other accommodations on Spider Lake for larger groups too. September 13,14,15 Traverse City is hosting it's 4th annual Epicurean Classic - 80 events including: Classes, Demos, Tastings and Dinners. Ask about our 3 night packages that include: 3 nights accommodations for 2 people - a Traverse City Cherry Pie from Grand Traverse Pie Company, 2 tickets to the Tasting Pavilion, your choice of Friday or Saturday 12 noon - 4pm, a Cozy Log Cabin with Fireplace viewable from bed with special linens and comforters and your own private Hot Tub on the Screened in Porch !

Girls Weekend Retreats: Did you know that 'Girls just wanna have fun! ' Well gather up your friends, sisters, mothers and neighbors! and choose either a Scrapbook or Sewing Weekend Retreat! This is where you get to have all the fun, work on a project or take a class and learn something new with all the girls! No cooking, No cleaning, No husbands or kids (bless their hearts!) The work room is open from Friday 2pm til Sunday 2pm - come and go as you please.... Six fabulous meals provided! With Dessert, Treats, Snacks & Beverages.

We came to Harolds Resort on vacation from San Diego in the Fall of 1989. We fell in Love with Traverse City and Harolds Resort. We moved here in the Spring of 1990, with our son Dieter who was almost 2 years old and 8 1/2 years later our son Hunter was born.

Kathy & Rolf Schliess purchased this cabin in 1990

While we were here on vacation in 1989 we were telling the owner how much we loved Traverse City and Harolds Resort and he said - if you love it so much, why don't you buy it ? !! Just seemed like a good fit and an adventure and a great place to raise a family. And we were right.. and now we are GRAND PARENTS of twin boys ! Boy how time flies when you are having fun !

Location, Location, Location... at the end of the road, off the highway, in the woods and on the lake. Surrounded by water on 3 sides. There is just not many places left that can give you the peace, quiet and solitude with easy access to all that downtown Traverse City and the surrounding area have to offer.

Cozy Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 16, 2010
  • Stayed: Feb 2010
This cozy cabin was exactly what we expected after seeing pictures. It was very clean and had a touch of comfort! The towels and flannel sheets smelled so good, an added bonus compared to a hotel's towels and sheets! The fireplace heated the cabin and added to the coziness. We were aprehensive about the hottub since it was under 10 degrees outside. But once we got in, it felt wonderful. To breathe in the cool crisp air while relaxing in a bubbling warm water, it actually warmed us up! The Christmas lights were nice and the view was great! My husband & I really needed this get away to spend some time alone without the interuptions of every day life. We went into Traverse City and ate at Olive Garden which is awlays awesome & we also made a trip to the Turtle Creek Casino. It was a nice casino and I liked that it was not too busy. We played the slots and had many to choose from. We shopped the outlets and mall for a little bit and then we couldn't wait to get back to our cabin! The cabin was close to town yet we were in the country and away form the busy city life! My husband & I enjoyed our stay and can not wait to come back. We may make this a yearly winter break! Many times since we have been home we have referred to the cabin wishing we were there again. Very comfortable, cozy, romantic & relaxing retreat. Thank You!!!

Owner's Response: We know some people have to have a "hotel room" - but what a bonus for those who don't !! Having your own little log cabin to "call you home ' is something you willl never know when you stay at a hotel. Having your own private hot tub on your screened in porch, even with single digit temps - is something you can never experience at a "hotel". And as I always say.. the colder and nastier the weather.. the better the hot tub feels ! " Don't wait for the storm to pass, learn to dance in the rain ! " Kathy

Perfect little cabin in the woods

  • Submitted: Mar 9, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
My wife and I would like to thank you for your wonderful hospitality this weekend. We rented cabin 4 and it was wonderful. We celebrated our 2nd anniversary this weekend and it was wonderful. Cozy quaint and very comfy. The fireplace and the hot tub made the weekend. You had everything we needed and everything was well labeled and thought out. It was like we were the only people in the world. Thank you for everything.
Owner's Response: Thank You ! You are very kind. I think that every couple needs an anniversary like this. It does not have to be "on" the actual Wedding Anniversary ... but at least once a year.. you need to get away and feel like you are the only people in the world. You are why I do everything I do and it makes me smile that you appreciated it... ;0) Kathy

Very cozy quiet charming rustic cabin in the woods

Went to celebrate an anniversary in the dead of winter. It was fun finding this little gem in the woods. Everything you need in one cozy cabin. The best part is the lovely hot tub right outside the door, spent most of our time in there. Also loved having the heated bed as well. Everything was well maintained and clean and in working order. We were greeted with a very nice welcome letter and table set up for a romantic week end. We didn't leave the cabin for anything else just wanted to relax and enjoy each others company with no distractions.
I would definitely recommend Harold's Resort to anybody that wants to get away from all the hustle and bustle of city life.

Awesome cozy cabin on a beautiful, warm lake

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
My girlfriend and I stayed at cabin 4 from wed-saturday in mid july and had an overall amazing experience. The weather was awesome and the water was warm everyday. The cabin is perfect for a small family or just two people and the basics are provided. BBQ is perfect for cottage foods and the fire pit and private each are both perfect. It was only a short drive (10 mins) one day to the Traverse City State park which had a very nice beach. We fished on the paddle boat every night and rented kayaks for morning trips around the lakes. Everybody there was so nice and helpful, responded to every request we had. Overall great experience and i wouldnt have changed a thing.
Owner's Response: You can't beat Summertime Up North on the lake ! Spider Lake does warm up nice and quick in he summer compared to "the big lakes". We are not always able to do a partial week in the Summer - normally renting weekly Saturday to Saturday, but this lucky couple took advantage of a cancellation. A row boat is included with each cabin - they called it a paddleboat, but a great way to end the day ! We have a community bon fire pit and sandy beach on our private peninsula - at the end of the road, off the highway, in the woods. They had one of the smaller cabins - we have all sizes here and manage larger private homes - all on Spider Lake - 12 miles SE of downtown Traverse City. Come on up ! Kathy & Rolf

Perfect Get-Away Weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
We stayed at this property for 2 nights, April 2013... sorry I cannot indicate specifically which cabin we stayed in (against the review rules), which of course would have made this review more useful... but it was a very cozy little cabin for a romantic weekend getaway! From my first email interaction with Kathy to the last fleeting glance as we left on Monday morning, everything was smooth and carefree. When we arrived the cabin was toasty warm from the gas fireplace, clean, and delightfully set up for us! The [square] hot tub on the screened porch was wonderful with our cold evenings, especially once the twinkle lights surrounding the porch came on, although I would echo another reviewer's comments about the proximity of the next door cabin being a bit of a privacy issue. Be aware there is no television in the cabin, but having read this in another review, we brought our own TV, DVD player and movies, as well as a few games, which proved nice for evening entertainment. We also made a trip into town on Sunday afternoon. The tiny kitchen was quaint, but had everything we needed to cook up the fixings we had brought for a scrumptious breakfast on Sunday morning, and the bed with flannel sheets and down comforter was incredibly comfortable. I read where another reviewer had commented on the shower being very old and kind of icky, which is true, but it was very clean, and really wasn't an issue for us. All in all, a wonderful weekend away... we would highly recommend if you are looking for a peaceful, romantic hideaway weekend that offers many nearby options for sightseeing, shopping, and entertainment... we are already talking about going back!
Owner's Response: Everyone has a story, and we love to hear it.. There is even a journal in each cabin to write your story.
Everyone needs to "get away" - relax, re-charge and re-connect. This is the place to do it. At the end of
the road, off the highway in the woods and on the lake - with beautiful Traverse City just a hop, skip and
and jump away. Seven cabin sit on a private peninsula - surrounded by Spider Lake on 3 sides
with a few open all winter, including this one. Soak in the Hot Tub with the twinkle lights giving off "just
enough" of a glow during the cold dark nights of Winter - and this year April was part of Winter ! The Hot
Tub also is available Spring and Fall. Summer Rentals are Weekly only - Sat to Sat. Traverse City is a
Fabulous place to visit and having your own little Log Cabin to come "home" to each night is the way to go !
Love to have you ! Kathy

This Log Cabin at Harolds Resort is located on a 2 acre private peninsula surrounded by Spider Lake on 3 sides. A 459 acre 'all sports lake', Spider Lake can be found within the Pere Marquette State Forest. Located in Grand Traverse County along w/ many other inland lakes, we are also close to East & West GT Bay. The Boardman River snakes thru the county providing fly fishing, canoeing and tubing opportunities & then empties into West Grand Traverse Bay near downtown Traverse City. All kinds of water, lake and river water activities can be done in an endless water wonderland - Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. Being the Tart Cherry Capitol of the World means not only cherries for our area, but also all kinds of berries, apples, peaches, sweet corn and all can be found at roadside stands & our downtown Farmers Market approx July - October. With so many things to do, you might forget to do one of my favorite things.. Nothing! Ask about other vacation rentals we manage on 'Spider'

Other Activities: snow shoeing, snowmobiling, ice skating

Golf: Love to Golf a different place everyday? Would you rather stay 'off the beaten path' ? How about a Cabin in the Woods? A Vacation Home on the lake? Would you like to do a little boating or fishing in between rounds? Forget the Hotel on the Miracle Mile! Come stay - in the woods, off the highway and on the lake! You will only feel like you are in the middle of nowhere! There is easy access to town and all the Golf Courses you could possibly want... and they are all a scenic drive away!

Ski: Cross Country Skiing at it's best -- with all the natural snow Grand Traverse County gets, All the State Groomed Trails to use for free ! - just grab your skis or snowshoes and come up to the woods-- get a pot of Chili cooking before you start out and it will be waiting when you get back - and so will your Fireplace, your Hot Tub and your Flannel Sheets and Down Comforter -- forget the 'Miracle Mile' of hotels, motels and restaurants.. stay out here, in the woods and close to nature. Yes, we have downhill slopes nearby if that's your kind of skiing ! There is something for everyone.
