Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Sand Bar for a girls week and it met all our expectations. The home was just as described in the listing. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We've rented several places over the past few years and this one has been the best equipped -- had the 'essentials' in the kitchen, had adequate TP, trash bags, paper towels, etc. This one even provided the bath towels which we've had to bring to other rentals...one less thing to pack. The owner lives in the area and is very hands-on. There was an issue with the renters from the week prior to our week and the owner made sure I was aware of it and that it has been handled. We decided if our requirements regarding number of bedrooms do not change in future years, we will gladly come back to the Sand Bar.

Great week on Spider Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year, with our adult daughters (one married with spouse). The three bedrooms and two bathrooms accomodated us very well. There are two sitting areas - one by the TV/Fireplace and another overlooking the lake. The wireless internet worked great. The house was very clean, the kitchen stove and dishwasher new. At the lake we only used the kayaks but there's also a pedal boat and rowboat. Fishing is good - there are nice bass and lots of pan fish. We had a couple of cool-weather days but in Traverse City there is so much do - golf, miniature golf, wineries, restaurants, downtown shopping, that it worked out fine. We rented a pontoon boat from Harold's -- they dropped it off at the dock and picked it up later - very convenient. Had a great time and recommend it!

Great, clean home, Awesome owners, Beautiful Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Sand Bar was great. The home was clean, and well maintained. Floorcoverings were very clean, and the whole home smelled fresh! We found the bed to be comfortable with nice sheets and a great selection of extra pillows. The provided bath linens were clean, fluffy and newer. No "cottage" hand me down linens here. The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils and tools you will need should you choose to eat in and having the second fridge was handy as was the dishwasher!

We thoroughly enjoyed listening to the loons while relaxing on the large deck that overlooks the water and wraps around to the side of the house, where the grill is waiting to be put to good use.

The internet was a huge plus as was the Charter cable for the rainy nights we had. There is also a nice selection of card games, DVD's , books and magazines .

Rita and Dave were very accommodating and very available if we needed anything. The house was all set for us, and we didn't run into any issues. However it was nice to know they were near by if we needed them. Rita also has a binder full of local attractions and maps for planning any day trips, but I must say, there was more than enough for us to do right at the lake.

We brought our pontoon boat, and we were able to tie it off at the end of the dock without any hassle. Just bring a couple of bumpers and a some rope and you will be fine if you bring your own boat.

Overall, we would recommend this rental to anyone for all of the above reasons, and many more too numerous to list! We would love to return for another 8 days!

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!
