Wilkins Landing in Traverse City is a cozy, two-bedroom cabin rental on Spider Lake in the far northern region of Michigan’s lower peninsula. This picturesque, secluded vacation home offers a quiet, private retreat between the trees with no close (human) neighbors.

This cabin is settled lakeside on a wooded lot with a private dock (complete with a pontoon boat for summer rentals) and easy access to both water and town.

This home is equipped to make the most of all seasons, with a large shaded yard, an open-air deck with lounge chairs, a view of the lake, an outdoor grill and fire pit, and a real wood-burning indoor fireplace with an old-fashioned stone hearth — perfect for cold days.

FYI - The video to the left of SPIDER LAKE is NOT our Spider Lake. I believe the lake in the video is in Wisconsin.

This home provides a full kitchen with dinnerware and appliances, as well as a comfortable sitting room with a television and a dining area with seating for four. Outside, there is a dining table with an umbrella on the deck and a picnic table closer to the water.

Sleeping arrangements: Wilkins Landing includes two private bedrooms, furnished with one queen-sized bed and one full-sized bed. It also has one full bath with shower

Perfect for 2 people but can accommodate 4 people, this year-round Michigan cabin enjoys a beautiful location on Spider Lake, as well as a scenic lakefront with wonderful family outdoor amenities. Guests can enjoy off-street parking and easy access to the lake via a private dock. In the summer, this rental has the added benefit of an included pontoon boat. Starting June 7, all weekly rentals will have access to the pontoon and will be provided with the boat contract during the booking process. Life jackets and safety equipment are already on board. Spider Lake is a 459 acre "All Sports" Lake with "fast boating": limited to the hours of 11 am - 7:30 pm. This allows for quiet time and fishing in the morning and evening.
December of 2019 we did a little updating.. all flooring are new vinyl plank, and while we had everything out.. we replaced the Frig, The Bathroom Vanity and the Sofa was replaced with a double recliner for dual napping !

Excellent little weekend getaway. Private, quiet and great views. This was our second year visiting. One of our favorite getaways. — Renee, Nov. 2019
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

About the Owner/Manager

Wilkins Landing is located close to my own home in Traverse City, Michigan. I bought my first rental properties at Harold’s Resort with my husband in 1990 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 on Spider Lake. I am a scrapbooker and have in the past hosted Scrap, Stamp and Camp weekends at my places on Spider Lake. 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. I would love to have you stay at my place. Kathy
