Successfully Renting Boats & Cabins since 1991

 I am considering opening for 2022 however, due to necessary improvements and the time needed for a restart I am hesitant on a start date and not comfortable taking reservations at this time.     

Call 231.357.1211 or email shawnscabins@gmail.com for details!

  • When considering your needs such as how many people = one or two cabins, number of nights and dates, boats; read my “Think About This” info on the Some Boats Included page! 
  • Also, if considering a trip to the north and the Traverse City Area you may want to read my thoughts titled “FYI – The Seasonality of the Traverse City Area” and you will find that on the Contact and Map page.

This rental cabin property is on Lakeview Trail, a private blacktop road on Spider Lake outside of Traverse City, Michigan USA

The Jurgens & Waller Cabins Both rental cabins are two bedroom; the Jurgens sleeps 4 and the Waller sleeps 6.  Some boats are included: row, pedal, kayaks and canoe; pontoon boats and outboard motors are extra. Onsite swimming, boating and fishing. Call or email for more information!  Make some lasting memories.

Why this Property?  Because you get a cabin at an affordable price, on a very nice piece of property with great views not to far from Traverse City, the Sleeping Bear Dunes, wineries, casinos, small towns, shopping and so much more.  Plus, and maybe the most important thing to me is the sandy lake bottom and you can swim right out front!  There are Beautiful and Breathtaking views.

Great for Family Get-Togethers!

“I like the change of seasons and the innumerable places to go and visit within a short drive.  I will say this, I think the best place is Spider Lake.”
