Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for sharing The Sand Bar with us, we have used HomeAway for many vacation rentals throughout the US and Michigan and this is the one I have been most pleased with. Hope to be able to use it again and I hope all your renters realize what a gem you have. The deck is great, you get both shade and sun for the sunlovers and non. Thanks again Mary Jean

MEMORIAL DAY 2014

  • 5 of 5
Second, consecutive, beautiful Memorial Day weekend spent @ the Sand Bar. The attention the owner, Rita, pays to details is appreciated. It is the little things that make this a delightful vacation destination. Not to mention the great location, deck and the way the cottage is stocked. Thank you. The Harris'

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE, BETTER THAN ADVERTISED

  • 5 of 5
We wanted to rent a cottage for a small family get-together/reunion. This place was better than we thought! Very Very Clean, a great view of the lake and perfect location to everything else. Sitting by the water with your morning coffee and the new deck is spacious and wonderful to enjoy. Saw lots of small mouth bass. Very quiet area, miss the cottage already and do plan on getting back there very soon! I have recommended this cottage to other family members.

LOVED THE SAND BAR

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Sand Bar was wonderful. It was a great family vacation spot. We enjoyed the beautiful lake, the view from the deck, the swim platform, fishing from the dock, roasting marshmallows in the sandy area at the water’s edge, our two younger children enjoyed playing in the sand, and the ping pong table was perfect for family ping pong tournaments. We could have been completely content not leaving the Sand Bar for the week, but since it was our first time bringing our children to Traverse City, we ventured out to see the local sights. We canoed the Platte River at Riverside Canoe and afterward spent the remainder of the day at the beach where the Platte River flows into Lake Michigan. We did the Empire Bluff Trail hike. It was an easy hike, and the views are outstanding. The Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive in the Sleeping Bear National Park is a must. The overlooks on the dunes during the Scenic Drive are incredible. We went to the Dune Climb. We went to Old Mission Peninsula for a day and had lunch at the Jolly Pumpkin and visited the Chateau Chantal winery. The Sand Bar is an excellent location for getting away from everything as Spider Lake is peaceful and relaxing. But it is also an easy drive to downtown Traverse City and to all of the tourist attractions around the area. Our daughter has food allergies, so we appreciated the fully equipped and very clean kitchen. Thank you for a great stay!! We loved the Sand Bar!!

PROPERTY WAS AS ADVERTISED CLEAN, WELL STOCKED

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed the "Sand Bar" and will return someday. We had plenty of space, the beach and swimming was perfect for the young children. Even a small fire on the beach. We visited wineries, the Dunes, drove the M22 scenic tour, visited Old Mission Point. Mostly. we relaxed, grilled out, and spent time on the deck with the family. Large grocery store very close by, lots to do and see in Traverse City. Seen deer daily near the front wooded area. Our family will return.

VERY NICE PLACE TO STAY BUT

  • 3 of 5
Property was really nice and fun. However, the beds need replacing as they were very uncomfortable. The basement also has a weird smell.

Owner's Response: Lena, thank you for taking the time to clarify your review with us by email. We are glad you had fun and enjoyed our cottage during your September weekend stay. We are sorry, however, you found the beds uncomfortable. We purchased the master bedroom mattress in 2012 and the guest bedroom mattress a few years ago. Although we haven't heard any other complaints, we want to make sure our guests are comfortable as we too stay at the cottage as much as we can. We also appreciate you letting us know that the "weird smell" in the basement was just "basement smell" and "nothing out of the ordinary". We will take you up on your suggestion to place an air freshener in the basement. Thanks again, and we hope to host you on another weekend next fall.
