Guestbook comments from the owner

Having a great time. Weather was a bit cooler than we expected yesterday but the girls had a blast at the indoor pool. Venturing out to golf today and then onto the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Love the condo - very nice.

Amazing Views and Super Convenient! Highly Recommend it! Golf courses everywhere and if you are a skier, this is your town! The best part is the Bar is a block away from the condo, it is a 35 second walk, I timed it!

Great place, lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Great two bedroom condo with two bathrooms en suite and a lovely living room with a view of fall foliage and the sunrise. Some decent restaurants in the resort, Bellaire is also a charming, nearby town, and both Traverse City and Charlevoix are an easy hour drive away. Joe was a wonderful, hospitable owner who is very organized. Would definitely stay here again.

Best Hosts Ever

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you could ask for. The furniture was sturdy, comfy and CLEAN. The condo was loaded with lots of modern tech including two giant flat screen TV's, surround sound in the living room and electronic HVAC. The view out the back door is AMAZING!!! Not, to mention there is a ski lift right outside. We will definitely be going back!

Amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

Spacious, charming appartment which had everything we were looking for. Large terrace with great view. Very nice pool with even greater view of the Lake. We really enjoyed our stay. One little comment; place should be cleaned better. Toilet, bathroom and other facilities were absolutely clean, but the kitchen was a bit sticky and furniture dusty. Cabinets a bit messy.

HAWK'S EYE GOLF CLUB is a beautiful semi-private, championship golf course that is the centerpiece of Hawk's Eye Golf Community located in beautiful northern Michigan. The golf course opened its entire 18 hole layout for play in June of 2004. The course has continued to impress golfers of all levels. The reviews and comments about the course have been nothing short of spectacular. Voted '4th Best in the State of Michigan' by the readers of Michigan Golf Magazine.

THE CHIEF GOLF COURSE is among the most beautiful golf courses in northern Michigan. Its dramatic shaping, bunkers and water hazard make it a challenge for its patrons. The Chief is an 18 hole championship level golf course that winds its way through wooded hills and is simply beautiful.

Ski: Michigan’s Favorite Ski Slopes

Schuss Mountain has long defined skiing in Michigan. So it’s no surprise Shanty Creek was rated 'Best Downhill Terrain in the Midwest'.

Now with 53 runs on its two mountains and featuring 4 terrain parks, a 300' half pipe, more than 175' of snow, and a 450' vertical drop, Shanty Creek is where terrain meets tradition.

Combine great terrain with special ski events, discount lift ticket pricing, and season passes for all ages, Shanty Creek makes it easy to schuss all winter long.
