One of a kind Island Adventure, Spider Lake
This island provides some of the best beach on Spider Lake and it will become your sole vacation site as no one else lives on the island. The only cabin is both rustic and modern with a large refrigerator and flat top electric stove. WI-FI wireless internet is on site. A large flat screen digital TV with local channels and DVD player is included. The cabin is completely furnished and will sleep 8, although privacy is limited due its open floor plan. A large front porch and deck, plus a lakeside deck are great for gatherings. The island features several picnic tables for dining. A canoe, kayak, row boat and paddle boat are included for your use. You are allowed use of a pontoon boat if a responsibility waiver is signed. Lots of water toys for the kids. Shower and bathroom facilities are provided outside the main cabin and are clean and convenient. Parking is available for two cars at the owners home about 1/3 of a mile away. This is an island paradise from which you will not want to leave. It is wonderful for children and adults alike as everyone can find room to relax and explore. Horseshoe courts and several other games are on the island. The island also has many areas for tent camping or overflow sleeping and many little nooks for space to yourself. A brief description, such as this, can not adequately explain the island amenities. It will truly be a matchless experience. This, one of a kind, island and facility is available only because it helps the retired owners pay the island expenses. Signs will be posted during your stay notifying others to respect your privacy. Absolute privacy may be hard to guarantee because of past history of use at the East end, but it has not been a problem. The East end of the island has a gate that must be opened which affords additional privacy. The island will be available for no more than 6 weeks during the months of June-August. A first come, first serve basis will be used to reserve your vacation.
Rent is $2750.00 per week and is discounted for multiple weeks. Check-in is at 2 PM and check out is 10 AM on Saturdays, unless otherwise arranged. A $500.00 reservation/booking fee must be paid to reserve your dates. Payment in full is required on arrival. Shorter stays may be allowed at the last moment, but generally the island is rented on a weekly basis.
As soon as the $500.00 booking fee is paid, it will lock-in your reservation and it will become your refundable damage deposit. We would anticipate a full return upon your departure.

The Traverse City area is unique for tourists. The island is our preferred residence and we believe you will love as much as we do. We have lived on Spider lake since 1974 and treasure the lake as much as our island retreat. The morning solitude is is a favorite time for us. The island is directly across the lake from our house from which you will depart.
You will experience the full gamut of life on an island. Everywhere you look is water. The beach areas are safe for children, but they will require close supervision until they learn to swim. It is about a 5 minute ride by boat to your car. This has been a longtime favorite summer destination for many. We do not to rent it for more than 6 prime time weeks per year. Pets are free to swim and roam. It is a wonderland for pets and children, without worry of cars or roads. Water Trampolines, Jet Skis and Ski Boats are available on the lake as rentals by other parties.
