Terrific Summer rental for families

  • 5 of 5
Bass Cove House was just perfect for our family vacation.
The lay-out was great for our multi-generation group (Grandma, Mom & Dad and Adult children). It provided the perfect blend of privacy and comraderie. The pool table and fire pit provided lots of fun. Although we didn't use them much, the Wi-fi and tv provided good entertainment. The lake and house amenities were the stars of the show. One consideration is that there are quite a few stairs in the house and down to the lake.
We spent many hours on the pontoon exploring the various coves and islands on beautiful Spider Lake.
I would highly recommend this property. We had a really fun stay.

Exceeding expectations & new family favorite!

Exceeding expectations & new family favorite!

We actually stayed here in July 8-15, 2012! I have been meaning to write this review for quite some time. This was our second stay on Spider Lake, but our first stay at Bass Cove! We had the same Hosts at both locations and needless to say they were phenomenal!!! We have traveled to Canada many times and once we stayed on Spider Lake and received the hospitality of these host, we have found our new vacation tradition! These hosts take care of all of the details and make you feel at home. The house was very clean and well kept!!! The pontoon was an added bonus and well taken care of as well! The ages of our party ranged from 13 to 80! All had a great time...especially the teens/young adults...they want to go back. Couldn't make the trip in 2013, but looking forward to 2014! Thank you again for everything as described and the exceptional customer service!

Owner's Response: Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU ! for loving Spider Lake and Bass Cove Cottage as much as we do ! We came to Spider Lake 24 years ago and fell in love with is so much we moved here from San Diego and haven't looked back once. Spider Lake has it all.. with that "in the middle of nowhere" Up North feeling to the Wonderful Downtown Area, to the Wineries and Breweries and now Distilleries, and all the Natural Resources and Beauty that you can only imagine. Spider Lake is an "all sports" lake - clear and clean, good for fishing, swimming, and exploring. Keep a look out for wildlife: Loons, Bald Eagles, Muscrats, Blue Herons and more. The house has some new updates and is more fabulous than ever. We have vacation rentals on Spider Lake in all sizes and shapes - so let us know your needs - most are available all year long !

Wonderful Fall getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 7 adults spent a long fall weekend at Bass Cove Cottage and couldn't have been happier with the setting! The fall foliage and view from the deck were spectacular. The 4 bedrooms and two baths made our stay so comfortable for all. The weather was a bit chilly so we thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and watching movies by the fire. After a day of visiting wineries or shopping in the unique Traverse city shops, it was great to return to this house with its beauty and comfort. We cooked several meals "in" and found everything we needed. We all left recharged and renewed-and ready to come back!

This was an excellent property

  • 4 of 5
Just returned from a golf trip with 7 of my buddies. This is an excellent property for that many people or more. Lots of excellent golf courses in the area. The pool table, spa, and boat really added to the overall enjoyment of our stay. I highly recommend this property.

Vacation in Traverse City June 9-16, 2013

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 5 with 2 adult children and a young teenager. The adult children brought their significant others on this vacation, so there were 7 of us. The beds in the 4 bedrooms were perfectly situated for our group. The older boys slept in the room with 2 double beds, and the older girls slept in the room with 2 twin beds, which left a queen bed for our youngest child and another queen bed for my husband and me. Loved the fact that there are 2 levels to spread out and relax. The kids loved the hot tub, but by far our favorite part of the house (besides the BEAUTIFUL view!) was the use of the pontoon boat for the week. The lake is big and meandering, with water so clear that you can watch the fish swim by! The water and air temp were still too chilly for us to want to swim, but we enjoyed going out on the boat every day or evening to fish. The reason for our trip at this time of year was a seminar that my husband attends at Grand Traverse Resort every year. This is the first year we have stayed off of the resort property. We found it easy to get to the resort, as well as the Sleeping Bear Dunes, the Old Mission Peninsula, and downtown Traverse City. I would highly recommend this house and location to those people looking for a wonderful lake view, a comfortable house, all on a fun, yet quiet lake (at least in early June), while still being close enough to the city to enjoy all the wonderful attractions that Traverse City and the surrounding area have to offer.
In addition, the owners have recently updated the kitchen with a granite countertop. The kitchen is wonderful for a large group, easy to cook and serve in. We also enjoyed using the charcoal grill on the patio.

SO MUCH FUN

  • 5 of 5
This house is great! So much room - 2 bathrooms and 2 KITCHENS! We had 10 people and 2 kids and had plenty of room. We hiked, snowshoes and cross country. House is so close to all trails and very close to downtown Traverse City. We loved it and will be back. House is very clean! Hot tub was very relaxing!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking such nice care of the house that weekend. Wish we could get you in for the first weekend in November for the ICE MAN COMETH race. We do own Harolds Resort with 7 Log Cabins and we manage 4 other private homes, so hopefully we can work something out somewhere so you don't have to stay in a "Hotel" because now you are spoiled having a "whole house" !! And as always, I will let you know first if something changes and I can get you in here for that November Weekend !

Spider Lake in Traverse City, Michigan

Other Activities: Snow shoeing, X-country skiing, 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 stay in a hotel room when you and 3 other couples can feel cozy and at home 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 .
