About Tom Gibbons

I am a banker for Huntington National Bank and my wife is a school teacher in Caledonia, MI near Grand Rapids.

Tom Gibbons purchased this condo in 2004

Why Tom Gibbons chose Bellaire

We bought this property to share with friends and family. We continue to build great memories snow skiing and golfing as well as just relaxing around the pool.

What makes this condo unique

How to Book: Book only two weekend nights (Thurs, Fri, Saturday are considered weekend nights) on this Homeaway site and tell me what other nights you desire. I will reserve the other nights you want which will only cost an add'l $99 plus 6% sales tax for each add'l night. Then just send me a check for the additional nights. My address is on the Guest Registration Form that you will fill out after you book for the 2 nights.

If you are going to book only during the weekdays (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday nights) and are not going to stay on a weekend night (Thursday, Friday, or Saturday) then just book 2 nights that you are staying .

Breathtakingly beautiful with all of the fine accommodations you would expect at such a fine resort. Professionally decorated and all of the comforts of home. The Master Bath has ceramic tile, a Jacuzzi tub and a separate very large walk-in shower with a sitting area in the shower. The master bedroom has a new King size Pillow-top mattress that is brand new and soft yet supportive. This is much better than you will find at any other condo that you may rent in NW Mich (I know, I have looked). Also, the 2nd bdrm has a new Queen size Pillow-top mattress. The gas fireplace, vaulted ceilings. Full-Size Kitchen has everything you desire. Use all of the owners amenities including the Cedar River pool-free (pool is open all winter long) workout facilities, hot tub, restaurants, pro shop/ski shop all right next door. The Cedar River Village is the newest village at Shanty Creek.

Excellent condo with perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This property was truly perfect for our family. With 4 girls under 10, we used both the bunny hill as well as the main slopes. My wife, who doesn't ski was able to watch our girls on either slope without leaving the condo. The big window right next to the fireplace was a popular spot for our whole weekend. We will be using this condo again. We had a wonderful time with no complaints.

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed over the Christmas holiday. We were definitely blown away by this condo. So conveniently located to the slopes. The condo parking lot is right beside the bunny slope for lessons. You can see the purple chair from the balcony and back windows. We would ski in and out from the purple lift. My kids would ski while I was making dinner and I could see them go by the big window. Very well stocked condo and kept very clean. Tom is great to work with. He returns calls and emails right away. Our favorite place to stay at Shanty! We will be back next winter for sure!!
