Things To Do

During the fall season, you will enjoy gorgeous fall colors as you relax on 3 two big decks - overlooking Bass Lake. Spider lake is TOTALLY spring fed so it's very clear, sandy and clear. There are five islands on the lake, three are Public Islands and one is called Party Island - need we say any more. Bass Lake is under fished so the bass get plentiful and big. Also catch perch, crappie, walleye, pike, sunfish.

I am a retired U.S. Army officer (2006) with multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is now my mission and passion to provide your family and excellent, fun and safe vacation rental experience at an affordable price. Ask me about the area. I have inside knowledge of Traverse City, Leelanau Peninsula, and the region, there is a ton of things to do. Traverse City is only 10 minutes away.

Everyone flocks to the Traverse City region to get rest, relaxation, hit the wine tours, microbrewery, swim, events, Cherry Festival, Movie Festival, etc. Ask us for a list of things to bring.

Book early!

Thank your for sharing your home. We enjoyed the boat and the wonderful views. We even saw a deer right by our cars. The hot tub was great for the cooler nights, as was the fire pit. We all tried the kayaks - how peaceful! Thanks again Dave, Linda, Dan, Steph, Adam and Beck - Brownsburg, IN. We had a wonderful time. The weather was beautiful. We had 4 generations this week ages 1 to 86 and there was something fun for everyone to do. Thanks. The Schinkai family The cabin is amazing and the time spent here was lovely. The boats and great layout of the place and hot tub made the week restful and enjoyable for all of us. Thank you so much - VanDykes
