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!
Thank you and sincerely,
Call or Email email@example.com for more info and pictures.

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 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!!
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!

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. :)
We had two couples and two children at the cabin for the weekend. It was a little tricky to find in the dark at first, but once there we had a great time. Everything you need is there to hang out lakeside, cook/eat, and just relax. Plus, being out in the country but still able to order pizza when you are tired from your day is nice!
My husband and I rented the Jurgens cabin for 4 nights. It is the cutest and most quaint cabin we have stayed in. All we initially asked from Shawn is that the cabin be clean, and it was very clean. It was equipped with everything we could have possibly needed for a comfortable stay. We felt so at home that we ended up staying an extra night. We plan to make Shawns cabins our home away from home every year and hopefully bring our children and grandchildren with us next time. Thank you Shawn for our perfect get away.
What would make this cottage a great place to stay, since it's located on Spyder Lake, is some attention. The carpet was very dirty and the furniture was old and uncomfortable. The cottage also had a very musty smell and you need to bring your own pots & pans, since what was there was not usable. (old and rusty). With some TLC it would be nice. Although we were busy and away most days, it would have been nice to come back and relax.
The most beautiful colors. even the roads that lead you to the cabin in the hills and the curves is an adventure. The water was so calm and clear that when we rented the pontoon boat we went as slow as possible not to break the feelings of peace. The memories are priceless and we highly recommend Shawn's Place.
Our family had a great time at the Buckles cabins. The teens loved the use of the kayaks and canoe and we felt very safe with them paddling out to the island. We have stayed on Spider Lake before and we love being close to TC. We kayaked the Platt River and visited the casino, both were close drives. Campfires completed each night and was very relaxing. But the fire pit was so far away and the stairs were not fun at night time. Fishing was good even though we didn't catch anything till the last day! Glad we had the pontoon boat to cruise around the lake, we caught a 34" monster pike! The deck was very large and spacious, we spent most of our time there! Thanks Shawn for a great relaxing week.
Our stay at Shawn's Cabins in the Buckles Cabins was absolutely amazing. The Cabin itself was quaint and old fashioned, fully stocked kitchen with great entertainment for the cold weather. The view of the lake was gorgeous and the mood was perfect for a couples getaway. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back in the warmer months. Definitely stay at one of Shawn's cabins if you can, they are wonderful.
