Point-O-Pines cottages on Spider Lake were previously owned by a Mr. Bond, who homesteaded on the site. He secured himself 2200 feet of lake frontage -- quite an impressive amount, as anyone who's recently perused a real estate guidebook will know!

William G. Fotsch purchased the property in 1944 and ran it as Point-O-Pines cabins: "ideally located ... on a 20 acre pine covered peninsula in the center of Spider Lake, having over 2,000 feet of wonderful sand beach." Anyone who has ventured down Point-O-Pines road can indeed attest to the beauty of the location. William Fotsch sold the place in approximately 1964.
