Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

1 bedroom studio condo, but sleeps 6 if you have to! The bedroom has a comfortable queen size memory foam mattress, with a full size loft to sleep 2 small children. The living room has a queen size sofabed, also with memory foam, that will sleep 2 small children/2 adults. The kitchen comes with a dishwasher, microwave, electric 2 burner stove top, and a mini refrigerator. Flat screen TV in both rooms with local cable hook-up. Spacious bathroom with full shower, and big enough closet to stash your travel bags. Enjoy fun times in the Schuss Mountain Village and kick back and have a resort shuttle take you throughout the rest of the resort to the other villages (Summit Village and Cedar Village)! The resort has many places to eat, bars, health club, indoor/outdoor pools (outdoor winter pool!). Also, bars, shops and eateries in the two surrounding towns of Bellaire and Mancelona. Mancelona has state land for snow mobile. You are approximately 45 minutes from Traverse City & Petoskey, and approximately 20 min to Boyne Mountain and AVALANCHE BAY. You are just 5 miles from a public boat launch for TORCH LAKE (Alden) and can also drive over to the famous 'Sand Bar' for good time summer fun! There is also a public boat launch to LAKE BELLAIRE (which is part of the 'Chain of Lakes' Bellaire-Grass River-Clam Lake-Torch Lake) which the lake is situated only 3 miles from the Summit Village and 6 miles from Schuss Village. The condo is also 25 miles to Gaylord and 'Call of the Wild' museum and fun park and 40 miles to Grayling! Come play in the center of it all!

GOLF

Shanty Creek Resorts is home to four of Michigan's best golf courses and limitless recreation opportunities. Whether you're planning a few rounds over the weekend with friends or a week long excursion with a large group, we can accommodate you. With four distinct courses, The Legend, Cedar River, Schuss Mountain course, and the original Summit G.C., you're bound to improve your game! Also, The Shanty Creek Golf Academy offers individual and group lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced golfers, and women only.

An unforgettable golf vacation awaits. .

SKIING/SNOWBOARDING

From beginner to experienced skiers and boarders, Shanty Creek has something for everyone. Schuss Mountain has earned its reputation as the 'Best Downhill Terrain in the Midwest' as voted on by On The Snow. For racers and those looking for a challenge, Schuss Mountain's face (aka Kingdom Come) offers some of Michigan's steepest terrain. Now with 55 runs on its two mountains and featuring six terrain parks, more than 175' of snow, and a 450' vertical drop, Shanty Creek is where terrain meets tradition. Summit Mountain returns with Michigan's Most Affordable lift ticket rates. The Summit-Only ticket, available Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, are only $15.

TUBING

The Cedar River Tubing Park is a speedy downhill thrill for your whole crew on Schuss Mountain's north face. SCR's eight-lane tubing park is fun for kids, families, groups. No need to be an athlete to enjoy time in the tubing park.

Tickets are available by the hour; sessions begin at the top of the hour and may be purchased at the Summit Village Snowsports Center, Schuss Snowsports Center, the Nordic Center at Cedar River or at the Cedar River Tubing Park.

SNOWMOBILES

Blue Sky offers 4, 8, or 24 hour rentals. They also offer a 48 hour weekend rental.

Why Bob Williams chose Bellaire / Shanty Creek

This condo is ideal for couples or families with 2 or more kids. We have all the amenities of home so you can relax and enjoy yourself. You're a 5 minute walk to Schuss Lodge where you can eat, drink, ski, golf, or swim. If you don't feel like driving (or walking) the shuttle will pick you up at the condo door, and take you wherever you want to go!

Great family weekend

  • 5 of 5

This condo was comfy for our family of five. This weekend saw temperatures in the negative double digits and the condo was toasty warm the entire time. With a family of five someone always get left with a cold shower but not here the water was hot enough for everyone after a day on the slopes.

Our family had a great weekend together and hope to stay here in the near future.

Not what is advertised

  • 1 of 5

There is no loft. There is a pack and play for a baby to use. There is a pull out couch with broken springs at the top and a two inch memory foam topper. Two small 12 year old boys were too much for the couch. It's not a terrible unit especially if you just need a place to sleep or if it's only two adults. It is just not as advertised.

Bob gets 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

This review is all about the owner and his general goodness, as it turned out I never got to stay here. But hear me out -- I researched every available option for a long ski weekend, and I chose Bob's place for our family, based on the reviews and his best deal (by far) among similar proprieties, especially among ones that will consider dogs. He doesn't charge an arm and leg for cleaning the way others do, or otherwise hide add-ons to get the price up, which I found refreshing.

So we paid, he shared really great info on Shanty Creek and around, and even called to touch base personally. After all that -- it turned out I had the wrong dates! And I had to cancel after it was all shored up. Not only did he promptly offer a full refund, he offered to help us find an alternative spot with his neighbor. To put it simply, he's a really nice guy.

Knowing you're dealing with kind, fair & decent people when you rent privately like this is key. And Bob is one of the good ones. I'd happily rent from him again. We might even actually stay there -- assuming I have the dates right. :)

How wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I hadn't been up North in years - and I'd never taken my better half. What a great introduction to Northern Michigan! The condo was exactly as promised - the owner was wonderful to work with - and even addressed an electrical problem for us when he was on vacation himself! This review is late in coming - but what a wonderful value for the location!

Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as advertised - small but cozy. I traveled with two sisters, a brother-in-law, a niece and a nephew, and it was just fine. A great deal for the price!

Forewarning that a lot of the sights are a bit of a drive, but when you stay up north, that's to be expected. Plan on driving as one of the activities. There are great sights to see while along the way anyway. Close to many cool places!

Visit Brownwood Acres near Torch Lake on Sunday morning for donuts made fresh in front of your eyes! Worth the inevitable wait in line!

As for the condo, I would only suggest adding some hooks throughout for towels (bath and pool). Also, while the condo sleeps 6, there were only 5 towels. We made do, but it would be nice to have enough for everyone.

Great place in a great location with lots to do.

owner was great to work with

  • 5 of 5

While we didn't end up staying in this exact condo, the owner was great to work with as there was a glitch with our rental and he did everything he could to make it right. He was in communication via phone and email, and was very apologetic and willing to go above and beyond to make sure the matter was resolved. I highly recommend renting from this owner because you know that if you're not 100% satisfied he will do what he can to make it so you are.
