Traverse City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Great Spot for up to ten! Onsite swimming, boating and fishing!

If you are looking for the ideal spot near Traverse City, I have it here off a private blacktop road on personable and friendly Spider Lake. I have two of the cleanest cabins/cottages on the nicest sandy hard bottom frontage with spectacular views within fifteen minutes from town. These two cabins, the Jurgens and Waller Cabins, can accommodate up to ten. Rates are comparable to other rentals and I will see to it personally that your needs are met. I stake my reputation on what I do and what I do is rent boats and cabins to people looking for a get-away; active or passive. See our other rental cabins at HomeAway #286342, #4191263.

Here you can relax, read, sleep, swim, fish, boat or find many other great, wonderful and beautiful things to do. I recommend calling the phone number on the right side of the page, for some personal attention to see firsthand if Shawn's Boats & Cabins will meet your needs. My goal is to share my good fortune with others at a reasonable cost so I can continue to do what I like doing, maintain what I have and improve and grow so I have more to offer repeat and new customers.

Thank you and sincerely,

Shawn Smith

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.

Shawn Smith purchased this cabin in 2000

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 at the cabins so 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 and 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!
