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...

We had a wonderful stay at cabins. The resort is very welcoming and quiet. The lake view from the resort is amazing!!!!!!! Nice place for families: swimming, fishing, kayaking and BBQ in the evening. That is what you wish for on the weekend or could use for the whole week. Come and enjoy!

The cabin had ample space, clean and inviting with all the amenities to make it comfortable and relaxing. We arrived Wed. to prepare for our guests, MibSAR search team (6 members) and friends who joined...

We were traveling with friends and rented the Log Home for 4 nights. The resort is on a quiet lake and is in a beautiful wooded setting. It was too cold weather wise to use the lake, but it sure looked inviting. The amenities of the resort were very well kept and the home we rented was well stocked and...

We were lucky to be able to get reservations for cabins 1 & 2 for a last minute family vacation. Let me say that this place was very clean and amazing location with all the amenities that you could possibly need. They even have a fishing row boat, kayaks, and paddle boat that the guests can use free of charge!...

This is our third year in the main house. We love it. We will be back next year. The house is spacious and we cook every meal with ease. The kids all go to the beach all day everyday. At night it's family game night. Great way to unplug and connect with the family

The log home is a great place for a large family. The great room with cathedral ceilings and roomy kitchen, large television and WiFi meant that our adult children and their families could enjoy each other while having enough space to be doing several different activities. The lake and woods are beautiful and can be enjoyed from the large wrap...

We only stayed for a few days but are going back next year for a full week. The older cabins are cabins but clean and useable. Most of your time is spent outdoors so they are great for the time spent in them. Great place to meet other families too! The lake is amazing and the owners are wonderful!! Perfect...

Just happen to be available, we got the number 8 cabin and got to watch the Spider Lake Drag Races that day. This cabin is warm and cozy, full kitchen and great internet on the entire property (I worked a little). I just visited recently and can say the furnishings and decorations have been recently updated. Place looks great!

“Choose cabins 5-9 if you want more upscale accommodations. Cabin nine is farther from the lake up the hill. All other cabins have a wonderful lake view.”

“There are many cabins there all at diffrent rates.. The really nice cabin overlooking the resort would be awesome...but I know it has to be more expensive than Cabin 2. All of the cabins are unique, comfortable, clean,with full kitchens. I did some great cooking while living there!”
