We purchased this home as a getaway and eventually hope to retire to this small town.

Donna, who runs the rental business, is a journalist and gardener. Dennis works in the building department at the University of Michigan. Steven and Ellie were teenagers when we purchased the place and are now adults living in Michigan.

Donna Krieg purchased this townhome in 2006

We loved the setup of this townhouse, with the upstairs 2 BR and bath being separate for teens or extended family.

The area offers the beauty of northern Michigan forests, lakes, rivers and trails while still being close to all of the resort and town amenities.

The setup of the condo inside and out is perfect for families and others. We also have one of the only townhouses with a side picture window that looks out into the forest.

The wooded setting is peaceful, but still close to the resort center. The summer pool is steps away and other pools are available year round. The number of lakes and rivers in the area is great!

We loved this place...it's everything up north should be: surrounded by woods, in a resort, clean, simple, close to lots of fun stuff. Hiking trails and pools are great though the outdoor pool closed by Labor Day.

We had such a great time at this Shanty Creek Resort Townhouse. The location couldn't be better. The condo was clean, organized, well maintained. It had all the luxuries of home! It had every game to play, sports equiptment to use and lots of extra bedding. This home is PERFECT for families with young kids...they especially love using the loft as a fort. We can't wait to book for next year!!!

Came up to spend the weekend with some friends for the second year in a row. It is beautifully quiet and relaxing place that still has plenty to do! We explored the woods, visited downtown Bellaire, swam in the pool, drove to the Sleeping Bear Dunes, and had many other fun adventures. The weekend ended too soon.
