Cabin #9 is a fantastic place for a big group gathering. There were enough beds and a pull out couch to sleep 10 people. The log cabin is gorgeous and has a gigantic deck for outdoor entertaining. Just steps away from the shore of Spider lake, and about 20-25 minute drive from downtown Traverse City. The cabin has everything you need to enjoy a weekend or a week. You can even rent kayaks, paddle boards, or a pontoon boat! Absolutely loved it and plan to be back.
Cabin 3 was rundown and dirty. Sloping and pealing floors, water leaks in the ceiling which made it have a musty smell, dirty dresser drawers, and that is just a couple of things. We couldn't use the porch because it was never cleaned off. Rain water and tree debris filled the chairs, along with tree debris and dirt on the table. Had some other issues that they did take care of for us, but cabin 3 is not worth the money. The lake is great though! Had family staying in two of the houses. They were in a lot better shape than ours.
We rented the majority of the cabins for our visit and some were very nice while others were not. Cabins 2 and 3 were dirty with stains on the floor. We stayed in cabin 3 and could not even put our 1 year old down in the cabin because the floors were so lopsided and uneven that it was hard for even myself and husband to walk. Two of the “bedrooms” didn’t have a door and one was simply a walkhrough to the other that they managed to squeeze a twin bed up against the wall. Very disappointing after knowing pricing that we paid similar pricing for that cabin while cabins of the same price were completely redone and renovated and livable.
We booked cabin #9 for the iceman cometh challenge weekend and was overwhelmed with the beauty of this cabin as well as the property. The cabin housed 9 people comfortably. Highly recommend Windjammer on the lake if your ever in Traverse city, MI.
There are 9 cabins on the property and my family rented 6 of them. Each cabin was well equipped with everything you need. The location was the best spot on Spider Lake. There was a nice small beach to enjoy the water, 5 kayaks to tool around the lake, a row boat, and a dock to tie up the rented pontoon boat. I can not say enough great things about this place.
