Perfect spot for our up north getaway with our dogs:) — Erin, Nov. 2019
Kathy was very easy and kind to work with. The place was easy to find and cozy. We loved the view of the lake from the deck and privacy of the location while still being close to hiking and riding trails but just a few minutes from traverse city as well. Thanks again, Kathy. — Brian, Oct. 2019
If you are looking for a charming cabin tucked away in the woods off a secluded bay- this is it ! You can enjoy your morning coffee on the private deck, pier ,or just sit in the yard and watch the ducks come in and the lunes fish for breakfast. The open floor plan is cozy ,overlooks the lake and all those amazing fall colors ! There is a stone fireplace, easy furniture to relax on ,and everything you really need in the kitchen. The bed is very comfortable and the down quilt was just right for our cool October weekend. We loved how peaceful and quiet it was- a great place to unwind after long days of exploring the area. The cabin is clean and neat, and looks just like the pictures. The host is very responsive and has local recommendations and information about the area. It felt like our home away from home for a few days. It was great! — Sandra, Oct. 2019

Winter Wonder Woodland is located close to my own home in Traverse City, Michigan. I (Kathy) bought my first rental properties at Harold’s Resort with my husband in 1989 and have been managing a collection of others’ private vacation rentals since then as well. The resort is sold now, but I still operate a few cozy Northwoods cabins near Spider Lake. I am a scrapbooker and have in the past hosted Scrap, Stamp and Camp weekends at this Traverse City rental. I also enjoy traveling and bringing back unique touches from my trips to add to the vacation homes’ decor. In the summer, you can find me on a boat in the middle of the lake, taking reservations! I am usually available by phone, text or email.
