Traverse City Cabin Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps up to Six.
I have the cabin of your dreams here on Spider Lake not far from beautiful Traverse City, MI. This clean, two bedroom cabin sleeps one or up to six. It has a bath, kitchen, living room, deck, grills, dock, boats and more! You can relax or be as active as you want on site or visit Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes and the many Villages within an hour's drive. Spider Lake has good fishing, swimming and boating. Take a pedal boat, kayak, canoe or row boat to the sandy, wooded, public Island where you can beach it and rub elbows with the locals, regional visitors and vacationers. These boats are included in the cost of a cabin; try and find that elsewhere! Outboard motors and pontoon boats are available for a nominal charge. This property has safe swimming on site and a strong and sturdy dock. Fire pit as well!
- children welcome
- suitable for elderly or infirm
About Shawn Smith
I grew up near Detroit and made a temporary move to the Spider Lake/Traverse City area to take some classes at Northwestern Michigan College in the winter of 1991. Upon waking, my second morning in February, I was lying in bed on the second floor looking out the window half asleep. All was white when a black squirrel was spotted down and about thirty feet away bounding across a split rail fence. The fence had about six inches of fresh snow and each time the squirrel would jump it would knock some snow off the fence to the ground. The morning was still except for this black squirrel on a pure white landscape. It was like a living painting. I watched this for about thirty seconds and realized at this moment that this is where I belonged. And, here I am today sharing my good fortune with others looking for that special getaway.
Why Shawn Smith chose Traverse City
Why this Property? Because you get a cabin at an affordable price, on a very nice piece of property with great views not to far from Traverse City, the Sleeping Bear Dunes, wineries, casinos, small towns, shopping and so much more. Plus, and maybe the most important thing to me is the sandy lake bottom and you can swim right out front!!
The set of two cabins, The Jurgens & Waller, are both two bedroom and are real quality. They sleep up to ten. There are Beautiful and breathtaking views.
The set of three cabins, the Buckles Cabins, are all two bedroom, a bit rustic and situated on a 'wow' piece of property on Spider Lake; very much requested. Rent one, two or all three. Great for family get togethers sleeping upto sixteen and offering six bedrooms, three bathrooms, three kitchens, sofabeds and privacy from others because you have your own cabin. Nice touch for the hermit that travels with family or friends but now and then likes that time alone. Email for more pictures and up to date availability.
What makes this cabin unique
I like the change of seasons and the innumerable places to go and visit within a short drive. I will say this, I think the best place is Spider Lake!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Shawn, I'm a granddaughter of the original owners/builders of the Buckles' cabins..in seeing your site & what you have to say about them, as well as the reviews from the renters, I had to write & thank you for not only taking such good care of them but appreciating & enjoying them too! Me & my extended family have precious memories there from many summers spent with our grandparents & miss them and the cabins so. Only our first 2 (of 5) kids got to see them so we hope to visit one day to show them a part of our family's history. We will be in contact when that looks like something we can do in the near future.. Again, thank you for caring about and tending to them like you have, and "carrying on the Buckles' family tradition"!! We hope to meet you some day "soon"!
When we can make it up there (we live in Tn), we'll contact you to see if we can come by and maybe bring some pictures of the cabins "way back when" if you haven't seen them already. :)
