Perfect Stay July/Aug 2019
My extended stay here in Summer 2019 was amazing and will leave me with great memories. I felt very much at home here. Wonderful views with 2 new decks- one has a "gate" giving you easy “back-door” access to the resort. I found a great spot to enjoy my tea, read a book and watch the sunset. Everything you could possibly need is here in their very clean unit. And all in working order. There’s a fully equipped kitchen with full-size appliances, (Yay-a dishwasher!), plenty of cupboards and drawers. I did rearrange some of the cupboards to allow me to store my groceries - 4-slice toaster- Choice of Keurig or Mr. Coffee- pots n pans- dishes/glassware- mixing bowls- cutlery/cooking utensils- There’s also plenty of soft fluffy towels and extra bed linens. - New Shark upright vacuum- 3 HD TVs with cable in the living room and Netflix on all TVs. (That 65” in the living room is awesome!)- Big selection of reading material and games for rainy days- Full size washer and dryer in the partial basement area. The basement landing is great for storing gear or your suitcases out of the way after unpacking. The many hooks in the front hallway is genius!
Having 2 full baths was so nice when my kids came for a visit. The guest bath may be a little tight, but it’s very doable. It has a corner shower, pedestal sink, 5 built-in shelves for your toiletries along with wall and door hooks. Both bedrooms are roomy, have 2 comfortable, queen beds. Plenty of closet and dresser drawer space and extra blankets & pillows. The slide-out shelf above the drawers in the headboard in the MBR makes a great nightstand- Both couches in the living room are fold-outs.
What a plus to have access to the fitness center, the indoor and outdoor pools, basketball, volleyball, horseshoes, biking, golf... And access to the beautiful, private, Summit Village Beach Club on Northlakes Rd., 1 mile S of Shanty Creek Rd on Lake Bellaire.
The grocery store is close. Hit the nearby Dollar General for items you may have forgotten to bring along. Catch the Friday morning Farmer’s Market/flea market at the Bellaire senior center for local fruits, vegetables, maple syrup and other great finds. There’s a lot to do in the area. It might be a little bit of a drive, but Charlevoix, Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Cross Village, Boyne City, Alden, Elk Rapids Traverse City and Sleeping Bear dunes will have something for everyone. Joe was quick to respond to any communication! Very friendly & professional.
Hidden Gem at Shanty Creek Resort!!!
This condo feels like a try up north cabin. Owners Joe and Michelle sparing no expense to create an experience that will be remembered, making this one of the most popular ski in ski out condo’s at Shanty Creek (Summit Hill).I guess we must first off say Thank You to Joe/Michelle for allowing us to rent your condo at Shanty Creek. It has been several years since we last visited (2011)and to be honest staying at Joe’s is like staying in your own home. I will say once again say “it’s a hidden gem “without the hustle and bustle. We checked into the unit, everything was in order and clean, unpacked, geared up and headed to Schuss Mountain to ski ( 10 minute free shuttle ride) Headed back after skiing prepared a meal and enjoyed some wine next to the fireplace while the kids skied outside the patio door (Summit Mountain) which was open until 10pm. Day two was a repeat of day one. The unit is very clean (which we are very picky given 3 boys with asthma) The unit has everything you need from natural fireplace (plenty of firewood), full kitchen, washer, dryer, satellite TV, ski- in ski -out location(Summit Hill) short 5 minute walk to indoor pool/hot tub, restaurant, ski rental, tubing hill. If you would like to explore downtown Bellaire it is a 10 minute car ride ( or Free Shanty Creek shuttle service) where you can find small town shops, restaurants and pubs. Family Room: has Two Large comfortable leather couches ( sofa sleepers if needed) and of course there is premium surround sound theater with Satelite TV and WiFi available, dining table, natural wood fireplace.Two bedrooms and two full bathrooms: Bedroom 1:has a Queen Bed and also two single pullout coaches if needed, TV, Full Bathroom..Bedroom 2: has two queen beds, TV, Full Bathroom ......Free Parking, Free Firewood, Free Shuttle rides, Free WiFi, Free indoor pool w/ hot tub.....Location: Shanty Creek Resort property next door to Lakeview Hotel on Summit Ski Hill....Who could ask for anything else? When visiting Shanty Creek we will always contact Joe and Michelle for availability first.
Conveniently located with ski in and out. Close to restaurants. Nice place!
Don’t go to ski!!!!
Condo was nice and suited 6 adults and two year old comfortably. There was snow, it was cold, summit said they were opening and never did, so no ski in-out, which was the whole point with a toddler. We had to pack up everyone and everything 3 straight days 10 minute drive over to schuss but just stare at the idle ski lift outside our door from condo. This was our second experience at schuss/shanty creek this season and have not found any employees that seem happy about working there, which is also unfortunate. We will stick with nubs nub in harbor springs (never disappointed in 10 years) or try crystal mountain next time. If you are not going to ski, then owner and property are great.
Dawn, I’m sorry that your experience with Shanty creek was less than desirable, Which is why I am utterly confused that you are giving this property a poor review for things that property owners have no control over (such as lift hours of operation which can vary). We are not affiliated with the resort. Your assessment of our vacation rental based on resort policies is not only unfounded, but unfair. I am likening your review to giving a rental car company a poor review based on the fact that you couldn’t drive on a certain road due to construction, etc.
Family Ski Trip
We really enjoyed our stay in Shanty/Schuss. The condo was very spacious with a lot of extras like board games, flat screens in every room and a surround sound stereo system. The most useful for us was the large number of hooks in the entry! Plenty of space to hang your wet gear after a day on the slopes. We will definitely stay here for our next ski trip to Schuss!
Worked out perfect for our family!
