Looking for some quality time with your family or sweetie. Come to Harold's Resort - a simpler time, out of the fast lane and into the quiet, private and secluded forest of Northern Michigan. When you are here, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but there is easy access to "town", Traverse City that is. Traverse City has been recently been named # 1 of 10 US cities labeled: FOODIE FINDS:10 Surprising Food Cities with Fabulous Restaurants, Farmers Markets, Local Products, Farm Markets etc.. AND Downtown Shopping, Wineries, Casinos, Watersports, Outdoor Activities for all seasons. Or for some serious R&R - do nothing ! It's OK, it's encouraged! Put your feet up, get comfy and work on some 'down time'! Tell us what you want to do and we'll "hook you up" ! Cottages & Cabins from a small studio for 2, to a Log Cabin w/private hot tub, to a large vacation home for 10-15, fishing boats & pontoon boats too. Kathy & Rolf - Harold's Resort on Spider Lake, Traverse City, Michigan.

Harolds resort was sold. Construction is happening there. I don't know if it will remain a resort or if it is being turned in to a private residence.
