This House is available for rent all year long: Available for .. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Easter, Mothers Day, Memorial Weekend, Birthdays, Anniversaries... and more...
** 12/13 - The house will be having a remodeling project going on this winter and will not be available until Spring 2014 **
We own Harolds Resort with 6 Log Cabins and a Cute & Adorable Little Studio, and we manage five Private Vacation Homes, all on Spider Lake, 12 miles SE of downtown Traverse City. So when you are here on the lake, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but there is easy access to 'town'.. Traverse City that is ! We came to Spider Lake from San Diego in the fall of 1990 and stayed at Harolds Resort and fell in love with Spider Lake, Harolds Resort and Traverse City. While we were here, the owner said if you love the place so much, why don't you buy it ! And many long distance phone calls later.. we did and arrived on property in the Spring of 1990. We have raised out two boys, Dieter and Hunter here and now are grandparents of TWIN boys born in 8/13 and now they will have all the fun of growing up on that Harolds Resort beach just like our boys did !
We started to manage this property - many years ago., It has a very quiet, private and secluded location on a No Wake leg of Spider Lake - no one will be jet skiing or water skiing in front. Kayaks, Canoes, fishing boats and pontoon boat will be meandering along - nice and quiet ! This is nice BIG house - with 3 sleeping areas to let everyone have their own space but still be all together. One area feels like a little apartment with a huge bedroom with a queen bed and futon sofa that makes a full size bed, a little side room with a twin bed and a big full bathroom and outside door - this all totally remodeled in the Winter of 2014 - new bathtub, vanity, toilet, flooring, walls, window treatments - all new and beautiful. Area # 2 has 3 bedrooms each with a full bed and full bath. Some changes were made here too.. 3rd area is a large bedroom on the main floor by the kitchen with a king bed and bath w/shower nearby - that bathroom was re-done in the spring of 2013. Also there is a full bed in the lower level Rec Room with a Ping Pong Table. So a nice house for a large group of 10-15.
The area is very wooded and sparsley developed to give it that 'Up North, In The Woods, On The Lake' feeling. Lots of State Land around to do all the activities that you might want to do and the place to do 'nothing' - which you should definitely do. Just 12 miles from downtown - gives you easy access to all that TC has to offer and everywhere you go, it's a scenic drive.
This spacious vacation home is located within Grand Traverse County on Spider Lake. The area contains many Inland Lakes and GT Bay creating a wonderland of water activities and water sports. The Boardman River snakes through the county for canoeing, fly fishing, & tubing opportunities before emptying into GT bay near downtown. TC is the Tart Cherry Capitol of the World and other farm fresh produce can be found seasonally throughout the area . The region is also home to many award winning wineries where you can tour and taste ! Two casinos are in the area w/gaming & entertainment options year round. Winter time brings snow, SNOW & more snow, and the state land keeps trails groomed for X-C skiing, snowshoeing & snowmobiling - & to keep the place beautiful and white - just like a Christmas card photo. While there are many reasons to come to this area of god's country - don't forget to schedule some time for R & R ! The best reason of all ! This map shows the exact location.
Other Activities: x-c skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, hiking
Golf: Would you rather stay 'off the beaten path' and Golf a different place everyday, or get in a few hours of fishing after the back nine ? Why settle for a 'room' when you can have a Whole House on the Lake !! When you are here, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but will have easy access to 'town' and all the Golf Courses in the area - and there are lots !
Ski: Over 200 inches of snow fall in Grand Traverse County every Winter, we can't always predict when, so be ready for it almost anytime... ! Could be in November or March ( or April ) But pretty good chance for Dec, Jan, and Feb - that we will be covered in white when you get here.. even if it's green 'downstate' ... We are close to Holiday Hills for great Family Skiing, Beginner/Intermediate Skiing, Snowboarding, and Snow Tubing. Muncie Lakes Pathway is a nicely marked and groomed X-C skiing , snowshoeing and hiking trail system a few miles away. Timber Ridge nearby has x-c ski and snowshoe rentals and lighted trails that hook up with our VASA trails. The bigger hills.... Crystal Mtn and Shuss & Shanty Creek are about 45-60 minutes away .
