A hidden Gem close to Traverse City.
If you read this you are looking for the perfect vacation spot around Traverse City; stop looking, I did it for you :-) and this is it. Great location right on private sandy beach with a dock, fire pit and everything else.
Take a quick trip in to Traverse City, 15 min, and enjoy some local shopping, or visit a few of the many
wineries in the area.
Location, location, location.......
Like one of the other reviews said, this is not Hilton, but that is not what we were looking for. The cabins are very clean and have a very nice layout with a little rustic feel to them. We stayed there with our 1year old son and he LOVED the sandy beach a few steps from the deck, as did we.
Enjoy the evening by the fire-pit with others or sit back and relax with a good beverage on your deck overlooking the lake, which is a slow speed zone between 7pm and 11am; so no engine noise to disturb the quite evenings.
The cabins are located on a dead end road.
Shawn has a VERY GENEROUS setup at his Cabins: Gas & Charcoal grills, plenty of outside chairs, and INCLUDED FOR FREE are kayaks, row boats & paddle boat, which you most likely have to rent other places.
We also chose to rent one of his pontoon boats (which I recommend to really see the lake) and he even provided infant life vest for our son.
Shawn lives close by and takes pride in his cabins. If you should have a question or any other issues, he is there immediately to address whatever it is you have an issue with. For the record, we did not have any issues, but Shawn still came by to make sure everything was OK.
Give Shawn a call and enjoy your vacation at Spider Lake.
Thank you for a great vacation Shawn, hopefully we will see you again soon.
