Not knowing what to expect I was very grateful that I went! We had cabin number (9) the log cabin and I was gorgeous! defiantly going back! It was close to Traverse City. Near by Walmart and Meijer. They provided the basics, which is good when going with a large crowd!

We had a family reunion at Windjammer in August and were delighted at the accommodations. My husband and I stayed in the more primitive cabin (#4) and it was just like old times up North. The cabin had everything you'd need but nothing fancy. Other members of the family stayed in more upscale cabins including the spacious lodge. Everyone was... More

We stayed in the large log cabin in August 2013. Check in time is at 4pm (which is a little late) and so we stopped at a beach on the way to Traverse City. We ended up arriving at the cabin at about 5:30pm. When we went to go into the cabin, there was a guy in there on his... More

The Windjammer cabins are clean and well supplied and the grounds are well maintained. The kayaks and paddle boats are accessible for all and it was great fun to get... More

Our group of 5 had a fantastic time at the Windjammer Resort on Spider Lake. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. Theresa and Keith were more than hospitable and friendly to our group! The whole area is very clean and organized. They create a relaxed, friendly, and comfortable environment! This was my second vacation there and I plan for... More

We especially enjoyed the nightly gatherings around the firepit with the beautiful views of the Spider Lake and the moon. We got plenty of use of the kayaks.The managers, Theresa and Keith, made us feel so welcome. We couldn't of asked for a better time.... More

I just returned from the Windjammer on Spider Lake. My family had an absolutely GREAT weekend. The accommodations were excellent and the service was wonderful. We were each greeted by Theresa and made very comfortable and welcome. She couldn't have been a better host. She was very aware of our needs and actually anticipated them before we could say anything.... More

We spent 3 great days at Spider Lake. Cabin # 3 was well furnished and fits for up to 6-7 people. We enjoyed the lake view and the possibility to have a own barbecue in front of each cabin. Michele was very helpful with the booking, providing us with a heater etc. and making certain everything is alright. We can... More

The Windjammer Resort Cottages on Spider Lake is a wonderful place to stay! First of all, in booking over the phone with Michelle, I just felt an amazing warmth and welcoming I immediately knew that the Windjammer was going to be a 'special place' to stay while we did our transition from Florida to our new residency in Traverse City....
