Bellaire / Shanty Creek Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Welcome to Michigan's finest!

When you are looking for the perfect family vacation, enjoy Northern Michigan at Shanty Creek. Shanty Creek is an all seasons resort featuring skiing (Alpine and Nordic), world class golf, all sports lakes, and many other recreation and entertainment activities. This resort and the surrounding area truly offer the best for everyone in the family.

Shanty Creek is an absolute Winter and Summer wonderland. It offers so much more than other Michigan or Midwest ski and golf resorts. There are two ski resorts with over 47 runs of fun and adventure. You'll find terrain for beginning to advanced skiers and snowboarders, a terrain park, 30 kilometers of groomed cross county skiing, an incredibly fun tubing hill for the whole family, sleigh rides, and snowmobiling. The resort has received five #1 rankings in 'Skiing in the Midwest' including weather and snow, dining, value, lodging, and Apres-skiing. There are four award-winning golf courses for every level of the game. You'll find many amenities for families at the resort including swimming pools, sauna, skiing, tubing, golf, ice skating, spa, and health club. There are daycare and youth programs available during the golf and ski seasons. Wildlife such as deer, turkey, raccoon, and fox are often seen on the resort property. That's a quick overview of what Shanty Creek Resorts have to offer. Our vacation home is located right in the middle of it all.

This Northern Michigan area has much to offer for your vacationing pleasure. Among the Chain-of-Lakes, the absolutely gorgeous Torch Lake, the 'third most beautiful lake in the world' is located just 10 minutes away as well as Lake Bellaire, Intermediate Lake, and Clam Lake. Grand Traverse Bay is also only a 15-20 minute drive. These all-sports lakes offer it all. Swimming, water skiing, kayaking, sailing, power boating, and incredible fishing. There are boat, pontoon, and jet ski rentals available. You'll also find hiking trails, backpacking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Fifteen minutes to the East is East Jordon and the Jordon River Wilderness Area. The Jordon River is among Michigan's cleanest and coldest rivers in the state. A federally designated National Wildlife and Scenic River that supports some of the best fly-fishing for trout in Northern Michigan. Being a heavily forested area our Fall color is spectacular! There's an explosion of reds, oranges, yellows and greens as the Fall season moves us closer to Winter. As the saying goes here, 'It's always a beautiful day a Shanty Creek!'

For the golfer, there are over 50 golf courses within an hours drive. Our local, on-property courses include The Legend, an Arnold Palmer design; The Weiskoff Course at Cedar River Village, and The Summit and Schuss courses. The Hawks Eye and Chief Golf Courses are located adjacent to our own property courses. There are also professional driving ranges and golf lessons available.

Many levels of entertainment are only minutes away from our vacation home. Shopping is a short distance away in the quaint villages of Alden, Elk Rapids, and Charlevoix. Also, Traverse City, home of the National Cherry Festival, is just 45 minutes away. There are casinos located in TC and nearby Petoskey. The region offers many restaurants, pubs, brewerys, and wineries. There are three wonderful restaurants within 5 minutes of our vacation home! Turtle Creek Casino (30 min.)

Our 1800 square foot, non-smoking, pet free home is located in Schuss Village of Shanty Creek Resorts. The upstairs open living area has a vaulted ceiling and a new fully furnished kitchen. Also upstairs, there are two bedrooms and a bath with shower. The lower level has a family room, two bedrooms, a full bath with a two person Jacuzzi tub and a separate walk-in ceramic shower with 4 shower heads and a seating area on two sides. A Futon provides additional sleeping in the lower level family room. Upstairs, there is additional sleeping available on a queen size sleeper couch. There is a TV in the living and family rooms with DVD and VCR. There is also a small library of VCR/DVD tapes. The upstairs is air conditioned in the Summer. There is a large screened in porch area off the kitchen and a wrap-around deck for entertaining. Outside, we have a fire-pit, a small landscape pond and waterfall, and gardens that grace the property. There is off-street parking for up to six cars and/or recreational toys--boat, snowmobile, jet ski. Parking may be limited in the winter depending on snow fall. Be sure to view the pictures.

Great for family ski weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
We stayed here with 2 other families for a weekend ski trip and it was great. We all have kids in the 4-8 y/o range and everything worked wonderfully. There were 12 of us total - 6 adults and 6 kids and there was plenty of room. The location is excellent -- about 3 minutes from Schuss village so you can fully dress the kids beforehand, pile in the car and be on the chair lift in 10 minutes. No overheating in the car, no getting dressed in the parking lot. And it's so close that we just ran back to the house for lunch rather than packing food or fighting the lunch crowd at the lodge. The younger ones and a couple of adults stayed and watched a movie to get a break, while the rest of us went back to ski. And when they were ready, we just ran back and picked them up. It's that convenient.
The house itself is very nice. A traditional alpine-style house with some nice modern updates. Kitchen and master bedroom and bath have been very nicely updated. There's plenty of room on the main floor (upstairs) for the kids to watch a movie or play games while the adults sat around the kitchen table playing cards and hanging out. The master bedroom and one upstairs bedroom are large enough to put down an air matress for the younger kids if you want them in the same room with you. The only thing I would say to watch for is if you have anyone with difficulties handling stairs. The main living area and kitchen is upstairs and the stairs are fairly narrow and steep. Not a problem at all for the average person, but if you have any mobility issues, it might be a concern.
There were plenty of dishes, utensils and cookware, as well as towels and bedding. All in all, everything you need is there.
We were looking forward to the fire pit, but there was so much snow that week that we weren't even sure where it was and didn't get around to digging it out. But the yard was nice and secluded. The kids enjoyed sledding on the side yard. It is long enough and has enough of a slope that it kept them occupied for a good while.
All in all a very nice house in an excellent location. The rates are very reasonable (cheaper than all of us getting hotel rooms). We stayed in the hotel last year, but with younger kids, you can't do much after bedtime because you're in the room with the kids. With the house, we could put the kids to bed and still get to hang out with everyone.

We had a great time and have rented it again in a few weeks for another trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this vacation home. We have 5 children, all under 12. There was more then enough room for us all and very well stocked with everything we needed. Plenty of towels, seating, even laundry detergent! This would be a great haven at any time of the year.

Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 28, 2010
  • Stayed: Sep 2010
This place exceeded our expectations and it was actually the highlight of our trip as the fish were not biting good at all! It was very clean and comfortable for our crew. We had 9 guys together under the same roof and had plenty of room. The owner was very easy to work with and made the rental process hassle free.
The outdoor area was great with the fire pit and the nice wooded lot. The location was perfect for us with access to all of the surrounding lakes (Torch, Bellaire, Intermediate, Skegemog). The house itself worked well as it had a nice open living room/dining room with a wood burner where we could all hang out for the evening.
I would definately recommend this place for anyone wanting to visit the area.
