This is a wonderful classic up-north chalet located in the Shanty Creek resort. You can ski, snowshoe and snowmobile all winter and golf, boat, swim all summer! You can do it all and then come back to the comfort of the large chalet. There are 4 bedrooms - including a large master with its own private bath on the top floor and three bedrooms and full bath in the lower level. The kitchen, living/dining areas flow together with a wonderful gas fireplace as the centerpiece. The deck is a wonderful place to hang out on a warm summer night. There is a full laundry room and everything you'll need for a wonderful week or weekend with your family and friends.
The chalet has loads of character - even a spiral staircase - and includes all the linens, dishes, a garage and parking. You won't find many chalets this clean and comfortable for rent - and - you can even bring your best friend (Dogs) with you!
Shanty and surrounding area: Fun is always in season. Golf in the summer, skiing in the winter and great restaurants and fun activities all year long are what brings people back year after year to Northern Michigan. In addition to all that Shanty Creek Resort offers the surrounding area is full of opportunities to experience the great outdoors: Boating and kayaking trips along the Chain of Lakes can make for a weeklong adventure through the 78-mile system or daytrips through the 1,000 acre Grass River Natural Area near Bellaire. World class blue ribbon trout rivers are only a short drive. In addition to boating and biking, fair weather beckons with opportunities to swim, fish, golf, hike and horseback riding. Fall puts on a glorious color show and is a good time for driving tours, and visits to the local wineries. When the snow arrives, it's time for skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.
Bellaire and other close cities: The town of Bellaire is only minutes away for additional restaurants, grocery store, banks, micro brewery, theatre, movie rental and shopping.

Shop, go to the casinos, fish, boat on beautiful Torch Lake, sail in the Bay, go to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Bellaire has wonderful restaurants, quaint shopping and you'll find a grocery store and some specialty food shops to stock up your condo and cook a great meal.
My family stayed for a weekend during the winter (Friday to Sunday). It was easy to find the cabin, though be careful if the road is snowy! When we arrived, we found detailed instructions regarding the cabin, as well as suggestions for things to do/see in the area. We have been coming up to Schuss Mountain for years, but this was the first time we had tried new accommodations and we were happily surprised with the great care we received. One of the heat registers in a bedroom was not working, so we called the owners and someone was out to see us within 30 minutes to get it fixed. Great response!
The area itself has other cabins surrounding it, but not so close that you feel right on top of anyone else. We also appreciated the fact that we could bring our dogs with us (for a small extra fee). It was nice being able to truly bring the whole family, and it made the weekend that much better!
If you are looking for a cozy cabin that can still fit a larger group of people, this is the place! You can tell the owners take pride in their properties and we definitely plan on coming back!
