Guestbook comments from the owner

Booked this place pretty short notice -was very pleased upon arrival. Glad to see coffee maker (and coffee!) - micro -stovetop (used micro-not stovetop) Bed extremely comfortable, room updated and clean. Directions from owner were very accurate. Never stayed at Shanty Creek before - came up to go to Torch Lake for the weekend - brought boat. Parking could accomodate the boat - ate two nights at the Pelicans Nest - excellent food and service! Launched on Clam Lake every day. Beautiful view of Lake Bellaire from window. Will definately stay here again.Didnt check out resort,maybe next time :)

Great get-away

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at extended stay condo at Shanty creek the first week in August (weekdays) and my family of four had a great time. It was easy to rent, my first time through the HomeAway website, and the owner called back right away. The condo was the right size for the four of us and had everything we needed to be comfortable --kitchen, balcony, table that seated 4, tv & dvd, comfy bed and pull-out couch. We had access to the beach and pools and a great view of lake Bellaire right from the window. I couldn't have asked for a better & more economical family get-away and would do it again.

Owner's Response: It was great to have you stay at our condo at Shanty Creek. We would love to have you stay with us again in the fall or winter. The colors are spectacular in the area usually about the first week of October. Thanks again. Tom

The Ideal Getaway for Two

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to good directions from Tom, our friendly host, we easily located the mountaintop condo even in the dark. It was great to pull in, park and walk right up the steps to our door. The key code worked ''like buttah'' and we opened the door to our delightfully cozy weekend getaway. With a coffee-stocked kitchenette, comfortable beds, table for 2 (or 4), wi-fi / TV, and a lovely balcony the place was IDEAL. We didn't take full advantage of the shuttle transport but next time we will! After a long day at the nearby Schuss Mountain Challenge, Saturday night we simply walked over to Sarducci's for dinner and drinks. We hated to leave on Sunday! Hope to stay again this summer. Thanks, Tom!

Clean, Quiet, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the condo. We found it quiet and welcoming after a day on the slopes. It's not a ski in/ski out property but it's super affordable and very quiet. The stars at night were amazing and it truly felt like a get away. We would definitely stay again and found the owner to be extremely easy to work with.

Terrific Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific experience from start to finish. The reservation process could not have been easier. The listing was spot on. Tom, the owner, was exceptionally nice and responsive and we locked in our days in very short order. We arrived this last Friday night to find a well appointed, very clean, very well maintained studio condo- just the right size for my wife, myself and our two daughters. We brought some food from home and were able to buy the rest of what we needed at the supermarket just down M-88 from the Shanty Creek entrance. The dishes, utensils and appliances in the kitchen made eating breakfast in the room or on the balcony a breeze. The building is set in a beautiful wooded rolling location. I enjoyed just walking around and running the hills. We spent one day in Traverse City, a second at Sleeping Bear Dunes and the third day at the beautiful beach club on Lake Bellaire- just about a 10 minute drive away. We had two terrific dinner at the Blue Pelican Inn and Shorts. I would definitely recommend this studio condo to my friends and relatives. We are hoping to come back in the fall to view the spectacular fall foliage and hike the numerous trails nearby. When on the way home one of our daughters realized that she left her favorite pillow in the condo we emailed Tom asking for it to be sent. He responded almost immediately by email and I expect that the pillow will be on it's way tomorrow.

Owner's Response: I'm glad things worked out so well. Northern Michigan is very beautiful in the fall, and around the first week of October is usually the peak color tour time. Hope you can stay with us again soon. Thanks, Tom Welscott

Luxury, Owner is GREAT, Stunning Vista views

  • 4 of 5

Tom is Great. You book the room. He sends you a combination code, you open the door and enjoy your vacation automatically, Shanty Creek Lodge indoor pool and hot tub I enjoyed all by myself, watching the 55in flatscreen as the colors of the season begged my attention, offering a panoramic view from mountain vista, The color was only contrasted by Lake Bellaire deep blue and peaceful.

Downtown Bellaire was a small fall festival with a parade, quaint and sweet as the Honeycrisp apples sold rodeside.
