Overview

Traverse City House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps up to 12

If you are looking for a Full Service Vacation Home big enough for 'the whole gang' - this is it ! With all the Modern Conveniences in an Up North Lodge Setting. Built in 2001 the house has a current floor plan and amenities you won't find in most other vacation homes in the area. Central A/C which is not needed often, but comes in handy when you do. All bedding - sheets, blankets, pillows etc.. and bath & kitchen towels are provided. Bring your Beach Towels and Bath Supplies. Four nice size bedrooms & a loft for sleeping arrangements. Master Bedroom & Bath has it's own 8 foot glass sliding door to the deck. Also has a jacuzzi tub in the bedroom, & a large walk in shower in the bathroom w/a glass block wall between them. Three other bedrooms are near bathroom # 2. And the Loft is above the Dining & Kitchen and overlooks the Living Room & All glass front overlooking the lake and deck. All this is 2300 sq ft. And an additional 1900 sf lower level. NO PETS NO SMOKING please

In addition to the 2300 sq ft of living space upstairs is a 1900 sq ft semi finished walk out lower level.. 2 twin beds, ping pong table, books, games, a 3rd full bathroom, kitchen sink & 2nd frig. Three large windows over look the lake, and a 6 ft glass sliding level walks out to beautiful lake views and stairs down to the dock and waterfront. This house is situated right next door to Harolds Resort and has access to it's Beach - The Best Beach on Spider Lake ! Sandy, Shallow, Safe & Warm - located a 1-2 minute walk from the house to the point of the private peninsula where the Beach is located. Also you have access to the HR fish cleaning hut if you would like to clean your catch and have a fish fry. There are several choices for having a fire in the evening.. HR has a community bon fire pit down by the lake shore, you have your own 'chiminea' on your deck ( a little cast iron fireplace ) and a bon fire pit in the back yard and there is a wood burning fireplace in the Living Room ( see pictures.. ).

Spider Lake is a 459 Acres All Sports Lake with 'fast boating' limited to the hours of 11 am - 7: 30 pm. So the morning and evening hours are quiet and great for fishing or just going for a pontoon boat cruise. Even during the middle of the day, there are places on the lake that are no wake all the time, and you can find a quiet place for some R & R or fishing. I say the lake is shaped like a 'squashed spider' with some big sections, bays, coves, and long legs, you can go out every day and get lost in a different place !

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking such nice are of the house. I think when you have a group like yours, even if you are just coming for the "weekend", it makes much more sense to get a "whole house" instead of just hotel rooms. We have been in the business for 25 years here on Spider Lake and are happy to have a variety of options from a Small Love Shack Studio ! to this LARGE private home to fit every reason and every season. Love to have you back.. anytime ! Kathy

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our families first stay at this property. We had such a good time. The large facility fit all our needs for a large group. The house was very clean and well maintained. The variety of activity worked well for those that chose to hit the nearby trails for snowmobiling, those that enjoyed ice fishing and we were able to cross county ski on the lake, the scenery from that view was beautiful.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the house and property, Winter time is up north is very special and something you can't describe unless you are here. Everything covered in white, the lake frozen, when the sky clears the stars seem like you can reach out and touch them. Thank you for coming North in the Winter and loving it ! Kathy

Family Vacation at the Lake House

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time here on Spider Lake so much. The kids especially liked the woods, the row boat, the raft, & just being able to run around the area near the house!!! We liked the bedroom spaces

& the number of bathrooms.

The main thing,however, was just all 18 of us being able to be under the same roof comfortably! We were from Traverse City, Charleston,WV, San Juan Bautista,CA & St. Paul,MN.

Great memories were made!!!!!
