Rick Schoonover purchased this house in 2002
We built our dream log home right on the nicest ski hill in Michigan.
Great for groups of people - especially if some ski and some don't; or if some golf and some don't; or if some want to sleep in and others are early risers... great home for friends and family to enjoy the beautiful Shanty Creek Resort - we overlook nothing except all of Michigan!
This house is a great find! I had never experienced ski in/ski out before and now wouldn't want anything less! It was so convenient and less stressful than packing everyone AND all the equipment in the SUV each day. The house is beautifully maintained and was clean and ready for our arrival. We were already talking about a return trip before we even left. Don't change a thing!
We celebrated my mom's 60th birthday in this amazing home. The location was great -- just up the ski hill from Schuss Village yet close enough for the kids to walk down to the pool or the general store.
We used this same home for a ski trip last winter. As great as it is in the summer it's even better when the snow flies. Nothing like skiing right up to the fire pit for a hot coco.
This trip was spent playing board games around the inside fire place, cooking way too much yummy food in the gourmet kitchen, and drinking wine while soaking in the outdoor hot tub. The master suite was a great place to drink coffee and curl up with a good book on the deck overlooking the woods in the morning. And after a long day bicycling and hiking the local trails the jetted tub was just the thing that we needed!
WE loved this home in the winter, and again in the summer. We'll definitely be back!
Our family had a wonderful time from start to finish!! The house was beautiful but also very cozy. Each floor was more beautiful than the next. The view was breathtaking!! It was like we were watching a movie thru our back window while we were cozied up by the fire!
The house was very clean and the owner, Rick, provided tidbits to help ensure we got the most out of our trip. One of my favorite amenities was the heated bathroom floors :)
The kids loved the hot tub!! We also greatly enjoyed as a family tubing & sledding!
We 100% agree this is the nicest rental in Michigan!! My husband would love to live there all the time. We definitely would recommend this spot to anyone - it truly is a treasure!!
This was a great weekend. The home was beautiful as we pulled up, just like in the photos. The inside was roomy enough for all ten of us and very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed and the kids were debating over who got to bunk in the kids room. We had two family, four adults and six kids. This was a great place for our family. Although the floor plan was open there was plenty of privacy for the adults in the large upstairs bedroom and the lower walk out bedroom. Four kids slept in the bunk bed room and two slept in the loft and all loved it. Due to a past injury I don’t ski, but my wife and all kids do. They just waked out the back about 30 feet and off they went. When they skied I didn’t have to spend the day in the lodge; instead I was comfortable in a large living room with a fire, reading, watching videos and playing cards. The kids skied all of both days. When hungry they would stop and if we needed them we posted a sign on the balcony and next time down Chicken’s Choice they would stop. I also got some good photos on the slopes. We celebrated my son’s birthday while there and enjoyed the family time after skiing.
This is a fantastic place and location. The pictures and description matched the actual – this home is simply drop dead beautiful. I have recommended it to friends and family and everyone has been extremely pleased.
The ski in / out location made everything very relaxing for the entire group. It was so nice to be able to dress, go out and ride and then come back for lunch and breaks. It was fun to see and talk to everyone going by while standing around the slope side fire pit. The evenings on the hill were so relaxing and quiet. The fire place inside worked great and was an attraction point for everyone to gather around in the evenings. The kitchen and dining area were well stocked and easy to use. Nice to have a great family place that everyone enjoyed; cooking, eating and relaxing.
Rick was easy to work with and made the whole experience a pleasure.
Planning to come back next snow season; maybe even a summer week up north.
Thanks for the great memories!
Had 12 adults up for the weekend.....and the house was PERFECT! The ski in, ski out is a wonderful feature. Hot tub was used every day to relax. Main floor was very conducive to the food and football that we enjoyed after a day of skiing and hiking. Would go back in a heartbeat. Plan to have the same crew up next year for the second annual trip! Thanks Rick.
Considered the best location at Schuss Mountain in the Shanty Creek Resort - Directly on the Ski Hill... Ski-in/Ski-out. Great Vista Views in this private wooded setting. Never get cold... the fireplace is nice even in the summer and the bathroom and walkout level floors are heated! Just a short walk to the Shanty Creek resort pool and Golf Courses.
Once you stay in our ski-in / ski-out home you will never go back to off-mountain accommodations again. Allow the early birds in your group to get on the hill for first lift up while others sleep in. Stop by for hot coco or a dip in the hot tub between runs.
Centrally located, Shanty Creek is only 20 minutes from Boyne Mountain, and 45 minutes from Traverse City. Enjoy a sunset over Torch Lake (only 15 minutes away and voted one of the ten most beautiful lakes in the world). Enjoy downtown Alden. Sail on Lake Bellaire, or collect Petoskey Stones on the Lake Michigan shoreline. Charlevoix is only 30 minutes away.
Golf: Four golf courses in the Shanty Creek Resort: The Legend, Cedar River, Schuss Mountain and the Summit. Close to Boyne's Monument, The Bear, Hawkseye, The Chief and more.
Ski: Ski-in / Ski-out home directly on Schuss Mountain's Chicken's Choice Ski Run. Best location in the resort; possibly the best ski home in Michigan!
