Wilkins Landing II

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed at Wilkins Landing II on several occasions, for both long weekends and entire weeks. What brings us back is both the location and the cozy atmosphere. When we are at the cottage we can unwind from our busy lives, enjoy a fire in the fireplace, listen to the wind thru the trees, and enjoy the very private lakefront setting. And when we want, the convience of Traverse City and surrounding area are but a short drive away. And speaking of driving, we love the many great golf courses in the region.
We have always found "WL II" clean and comfortable and recommend it for a northern Michigan getaway !!!

Cozy getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I (and our dog) spent a snowy, wonderful weekend in this adorable cabin! We hiked across the frozen lake, relaxed by the fireplace, and drove into Traverse City one day for some wine tasting. We planned the trip at the last minute and Kathy set everything up without any issues. She even left us a list of recommendations and directions to places nearby! This place is so charming - we'll definitely be booking again!

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is everything the website says. Since I live in Florida I rented the cottage based entirely on the information provided. We were not disappointed and enjoyed a very relaxing week. Our plan is to return next year for our annual break from the hot Florida summers.

Owner's Response: The Cabin is open all year long, if you need to escape "the big city" or "the hustle and bustle" of everyday life or the hot and humid Florida summers, this is the place to be - Summer, Fall, Winter or Spring. We look forward to our returning "regulars" and those who are coming for the first time. Kathy & Rolf !

Owner's Response: So wonderful it worked out ! Don't be afraid to contact me at the last minute, I will try to work out something for you "here" or at one of the other 10 places we own/manage on Spider Lake. It was a beautiful weekend and so happy you took the chance to come up north and see The North Woods in all it's Glory - Traverse City- Spider Lake - it's not just for Summer anymore ! Kathy

Just The Vacation We Needed!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect vacation for us to take our 8 year old grandson. This picturesque site from the cottage overlooking the lake is perfect for feeling “away from it all” and getting back to nature. The daily swimming and fishing were great and we even had a couple of fish fries. Although you can’t swim off the shoreline, the boat made this a fantastic deal for us and is terrific for cruising the lake, fishing, boating to the sanding island beaches and swimming in the middle of the lake. Daily wildlife sightings and nightly campfires were thrilling. The cabin is very rustic but is sufficient with everything needed including great views of the lake through large oversized windows, cable tv, wireless internet access and a huge shaded deck overlooking the private yard and lake. Although it felt secluded, the cabin is only about 10 minutes drive to Traverse City activities and dining which we took advantage of a couple of times. Kathy & Rolf are very good host that only come around if they are needed. Last, we’re told, our grandson still talks about his adventures at Wilkins II everyday and his memories of a great time with us made it very much worth while. We will be back!

Private & Peaceful

My Husband and I were looking for a quiet place to unwind and enjoy a week of relaxation. Being able to bring our dog was a must and not too many places allow pets. Kathy's directions & instructions were very clear. My Husband really enjoyed the fact that we had use of a pontoon boat and our "Sable" loved going for swims. On the days the weather didn't cooperate, we visted the local Wineries, downtown Traverse City, the Casinos & a couple of our favorite restaurants out on Mission Point and Suttons Bay. We ate most of our meals in which helped with our budget. We met Rolf one day who was very very nice. We would definitely recommend this cottage and would like to return again some day.

This vacation home is located within Grand Traverse County on Spider Lake. The area contains many Inland Lakes & 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 + 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 & the state keeps trails groomed for X-C skiing, snowshoeing & snowmobiling + keeps the place beautiful & white - just like a Christmas card picture. 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 almost shows it's exact spot - sshhh.... it's a secret !

Other Activities: Snow shoeing, X-country skiing, snowmobiling, Kayaking, tubeing, canoeing

Golf: Love to Golf a different place everyday? Would you rather stay 'off the beaten path' ? Why settle for a 'room'....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 - 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.
