About TRENT CLARK

Greetings to our guests and we welcome you to our Shanty Creek / Schuss Mountain home! We grew up in Michigan and have come back - where so many fond childhood memories were made. Now, we are excited to begin making some memories for our children, and yours too! After a long career in professional baseball, it has been great to return back to our home state. Our four boys love the area and they are so active that it really keeps us young...ok, the hair is gone, but feel 21. We are so excited to host family and friends. Our home is large enough for many people to feel comfortable and uncrowded with big open spaces and vaulted ceilings, yet the fireplace and architecture can provide a comforting atmosphere.

TRENT CLARK purchased this house in 2011

Why TRENT CLARK chose Bellaire / Shanty Creek

My wife, children and I had visited the area to see my sister who also owns a home in the Shanty Creek/Schuss Mountain Resort. We were in awe each and every time of the superb value and how much was offered to do for us and our kids. Since both of us are from Michigan, we decided it would be a great idea to promote our 'home' state with all the great hospitality the people provide and the natural beauty of Northern Michigan. We also wanted to provide a place that people would want to return again and again. We think we have accomplished that in this lovely home.

What makes this house unique

There are SO many things to do, we simply always run out of time and just can't do them all. In addition, each season provides new things to see and do and it makes for a fun place to visit and stay in ALL seasons. We love to snowboard, ski, golf, swim, boat, snowmobile and we can do them all here. Plus, my son forced me to buy the place as it would serve his quest to be a pro fisherman...just kidding. Come and visit and enjoy your family and friends. Many great memories can be made here and we feel blessed to be a small part of all your lives.

Excellent Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
Our week in Bellaire was wonderful. The house was exactly as pictured and beautiful. We had three families (6 adults and 5 kids under age 6) and there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and be together. The deck, yard, and firepit were some of our favorite and most used features. While in Bellaire, we used the resort pool (both indoor and out) as well as the playground for the kids. The home was very clean and contained all of the essentials needed for a comfortable week. Trent and Kerri were very helpful and even called upon arrival and departure to make sure everything was great. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing week away.

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
Our large group recently returned from a week-long stay and we're already in the process of planning next year's return here! Everything about this place was perfect! There was PLENTY of room for all of us to spread out (we have 3 separate families in our group - with kids ranging in age from 3-10). Everything was nice and clean upon our arrival. The deck is huge! The fire pit was wonderful - surrounded by several adirondack chairs. The kids loved riding their scooters down the long drive and into the cul-de-sac, and we felt safe letting them do so since it was a nice quiet street. They also loved playing basketball in the driveway. The lawn was big enough for several games of whiffle ball. We just paused and quieted down when golfers were teeing off close by. The in-law suite above the garage made a great place for the kids to hang out, watch cartoons, play toys and do crafts at the table in there.

We also loved the free use of the pools and private beach club. The weather was unusually chilly for a few days of our stay, but the outdoor pool was very warm and felt great! And when it started storming, we headed to the indoor pool to continue our fun! We also had a warm day to use the private beach club and thought that was wonderful! It's very nice with plenty of lounge chairs for all, lots of picnic tables, a playground area and nice shallower water so the little ones can even go out pretty far.

I read that the garbage was an issue for some people, but we didn't think it was a big deal at all. We would just throw a big bag or two of garbage on top of our vehicle every time we left the house and drop them off at the hotel dumpsters (only a short distance up the road) - not a big deal if you just do it throughout the week instead of waiting for it to all pile up at the end.

To sum it up: this was our group's 11th vacation together (each at different houses), always looking for an ideal house to become our "every summer" house, and we finally found it! We're very excited for our return trip next summer!

Great place to enjoy Northern Michigan

  • 4 of 5
The listing for Bogey Run was accurate and the pictures reflect the rentals appearance and amenities. I would recommend the property to others. It is roomy and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We love Shanty Creek and find the area offers lots of activities including boating and some of the best golf in Michigan. The owners were very helpful and willing to address any concerns or needs.

Lovely home, lovely setting

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for a family retreat (5 adults, 2 children, 2 infants). The space was ideal, and the setting on the golf course lovely. (And we particularly enjoyed the fire pit at night!) The owners were very easy to work with, which made the whole transaction easy. We plan to return next year.

Extended Family Annual Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from three nights stay at this gorgeous Shanty Creek Home. Keri and Trent were very helpful and accomodating of our large family group. Schuss Mountain is the perfect spot to teach the young ones how to ski. This home was the perfect place for fun and relaxation after a long day of skiing.
The home was very clean and well maintained. Comfortable beds with lots of sleeping options for our large group.
Kitchen was well equipped.
We were very happy with this home and would definitely go back again.

Great condo, would rent again as long as pipe freeze issue fixed

  • 4 of 5
The condo is in excellent shape with plenty of sleeping room and a fully stocked kitchen! Detailed instructions for heating and keeping garage closed to prevent pipe freezing were followed, but master bath toilet stopped draining after one day. Overall we were able to share a small bathroom in the same floor, but it would have become an issue had we stayed longer. Otherwise the place is wonderful and has a great location!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review!

We have a large home and a poor design of a number of water pipes running through the garage ceiling. This is not a well insulated area and thus an issue occurs sometimes - especially when we have a sub-zero run like this winter!! Fortunately, we keep a large space heater on site to heat the garage, if necessary. In this case, we even spent some extra time prepping the garage that week due to the -18 degree days. The dilemma was that the guest did not contact us regarding an issue that we have been able to rectify - typically within 3 hours of notice. We encourage our guests to call us on any issues, but in this situation, while there was an easy remedy, we were simply unaware until was too late & the guest was checking out.

The freezing issue only happened once each of the last two years and were attributable to the open garage. Because this issue has happened more than once this year, we are addressing a new heating system for the garage for the future to alleviate the issue permanently - no matter how cold it gets!!
