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

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....

First of all, the location is amazing! The cabins surround a shared fire pit that overlook the Spider Lakes, and it looks absolutely gorgeous in the morning. The cabin itself has a rustic charm that we loved. The place was well-lit and clean. We were in cabin 7 and there was a living room space, a kitchen, and three bedrooms--way... More

We are always hesitant when we book a new place site unseen, but we were PLEASANTLY surprised when we arrived. We stayed in Rustic Cabin #4 - it was clean, mostly well maintained and perfect for the two of us + a small dog. Keith and Theresa are on site at all times to assist with any requests, and Michelle... More
