I Thank you for your interest.
Harolds Resort has 6 Log Cabins and a Cute & Adorable Little Studio, and I manage two Private Vacation Homes, all on Spider Lake, 12 miles SE of downtown Traverse City. So when you are here on the lake, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but there is easy access to "town".. Traverse City that is !
Let me know any questions or concerns..

Detailed Description

Harolds Resort Is located.. at the end of the road.. off the highway, in the woods and surrounded by Spider Lake on 3 sides. Go back in time to a much simpler time. Take a break from the crazy life and relax. Fish, Swim, Bon Fires, RELAX. Play some games with the kids, RELAX. Cook dinner on your own Grill right at your own Cabin on the Lake RELAX. Each cabin comes with a Row Boat ( Memorial Day - October ) Rent a 5hp outboard motor for the row boat and go fishing or a Pontoon boat for exploring the 459 acres of Spider Lake with all of it's bays, coves, islands, sandbars and sandy bottom warm swimming holes. Read our 69+ reviews at property # 158840 & look at the RATES section to see what we have open each week. This listing concentrates on Cabins 7 with 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath for 4-6 people. We also have 6 others, ASK me which is best for you.. Sorry, no pets on the property please.. not even to visit ..thanks !

Family Quality Time: Bring the family up for some quality time. Bring them to a place that time forgot. Remember going up north to the lake as a child? Well bring your children to the same place. Bring them to a place for some good ole fashion R & R. Bring your favorite board games, books, deck of cards, beach toys and fishing poles. I bet they don't ask for a TV all week... a miracle... After fishing, and swimming and chasing each other around, after dinner and a bonfire with roasted marshmallows and s'mores... they'll hit the hay and never even notice the TV is not there. Rainy day -- that's when the games come out... or a trip to town to the Children's Museum - waves of wonder, or just a wet day outside... even if it wasn't raining, they'd be wet... right?!!! Rainy days are when the fish bite best... so hopefully you'll get at least one while you are here. We love pets, BUT they are not allowed on the property and will be asked to leave.

You don't need the whole family to:: Come up to the North Woods for a Color Tour Weekend - everywhere you go up here is a 'Color Tour' - cruise the lake on a pontoon boat (rentals available here) visit a winery, casino, or fabulous restaurant - we have plenty in the area. Hiking and Mountain Bike Trails nearby for a real color tour thru the Pere Marquette State Forest. This cabin will accommodate 1-2 couples, and we have 7 cabins here - and we have other accommodations on Spider Lake for larger groups too, Ask about a Cozy Log Cabin with Fireplace viewable from bed with special linens and comforters and your own private Hot Tub on the Screened in Porch ! ( Cabins # 4 & # 5 )

Traverse City has never been a better place to visit. And having your own little cabin in the woods is the best way to truly experience the north woods.
