Very nice -exactly what we wanted!!!

  • 4 of 5

This house was exactly what we had in mind for a week at the lake in Michigan!! We loved the paddle boat and row boat that were included with the house (as well as the swimming dock). We have 2 girls (ages 6 and 8) and they had the best time ever!! The house is a little older, but VERY clean and well kept. We were a little bummed that the dishwasher wasn't working, but the owner came to measure while we were there (with our permission) and I'm sure there's a new one now! The owners were also VERY accommodating -they checked in with us and answered questions while we were there -we felt very pampered! We would recommend this vacation house to anyone looking to relax and enjoy a beautiful setting!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you and your girls had a great time on your vacation. We are also very sorry that the dishwasher "died" before you arrived. We know how frustrating that was. We stayed at the cottage after you and hand washed dishes while we waited for the new dishwasher to arrive. But, you are correct, we now have a new dishwasher!! Thank you for your kind words and understanding, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

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.
