About the property

4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 13

This great golf course front home sits on the 8th green of the Schuss course and is in the perfect location for your golf group!

The Schuss slopes are a short walk and the cross-country trail is out the back door. You can snowmobile from the house to the regional trails.

The Schuss pro shop is just across the street and all the resort has to offer is right around the corner. This is a great location for a get-a-way with restaurants, fitness center, pools and hot tubs all waiting for you at the resort. The home has cable TV, wireless internet, a gas fireplace, open living and a private setting. Plenty of parking including a garage. You are just a short walk across the street to Ivans. Great place for your golf, ski or family vacation. Set on the back deck and watch the golfers on the 8th green.

Golf and play at Shanty Creek: Shanty Creek resort offers 72 holes on four championship golf courses, each combining challenging play with Up North natural beauty.

The courses offer tight fairways, formidable doglegs, breathtaking hazards, and varying elevations, Shanty Creek’s golf courses put golfers in an enviable position—trying to read and play those challenging greens amid the stunning views. Golf the Tom Weiskopf designed Cedar River Course, Arnold Palmers Legend, the Schuss Mountain course - a favorite among locals who annually name it one of the top public courses in Michigan and Shanty Creeks original course - the Summit.

The resorts 4500 acres also provides for outdoor activities, including Indoor/outdoor pools and hot tubs, restaurants and entertainment.

Off-Property Fun: Golf 4 wonderful courses, swim, boat, use the pools and hot tubs, sight see - you'll run out of time before you run out of things to do. Please enjoy the resort restaurants and shopping, and visit the great places in Bellaire. There is a movie theatre, video store, grocery store, great shops, coffee shop (Moka) and restaurants. One of our favorites is Starlight and don’t miss out on a visit to Shorts. In the resort, try Lakeview – it really does have a fantastic view of Lake Bellaire, or Ivan’s over at Schuss Village. If you get a chance to go a little further, Dockside on Torch Lake is a fun place to eat with a great setting on the lake. A few more miles will get you to Alden (don’t miss Higgins for the best ice cream around), or Traverse City, Petoskey and Charlevoix.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay. The house had all the comforts of home, without all the worries and pressures! We had the MOST relaxing time and enjoyed every second we were there. We feel so blessed to have these occasional family weekends with our adult children, and having a cozy home like this one - with plenty of space - made it all the more special. Thank you again. I hope to see you again sometime in the future!

The house is beautiful! We thought Mancelona was a charming, adorable town.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Schuss Mountain in this house. The house is larger than it seems in the pictures, and was beautifully kept. We travel often, and we have never stayed in a house as well-equipped. You will find everything you need in the kitchen if you are planning to cook. We found a nearby restaurant - the Iron Skillet - that our whole family enjoyed so much that we went back a second time. The ONLY problem we had in the property was at the swimming pool and that has nothing to do with the owner or property manager of this lovely home. Be advised there is a male resident who seems to be mentally delayed and he was there all four times we visited the pool, shouting profanity at my children, making crude remarks about women's body parts, and making us a little uncomfortable. I spoke to two other residents at the complex who said he is "harmless" but we were a little put off by his behavior. Otherwise, the vacation was great. We highly recommend the public beach area at Elk Rapids and enjoyed the shopping there and in Bellaire! Such a fun place to visit and we will be back!

Great house for guys golf trip!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this home three times in the past and will again in the future. It is perfect for a guys golf trip...plenty of beds, great back deck with grill and citronella torches, and secluded from neighbors. It's about a quarter mile from the Schuss Mountain Pro Shop and minutes away from the other Shanty courses, Hawks Eye (great underrated course) and The Chief. The home is always clean and has pretty much everything you need (plenty of towels, blankets, pillows, etc.).

The perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this home for several years now for the Special Olympic Winter games that are held here every February. This home is the perfect place for us. It accommodates all of the parents that have athletes that ski at Schuss Mountain from our team, and allows us to bring them and feed them a hot lunch between events. The house is always clean when we arrive and a very pleasant place to stay. Our agent Jane is fantastic to work with. Thank you for all the great years and looking forward to next year!

Beatiful home w/ easy access to resort amenities

  • 5 of 5

A group of my friends and family rented this house for my 30th birthday over the long MLK weekend. One of the guests realized he had stayed there previously for a bachelor party weekend. The house works really well for large groups.

This house was bigger than we expected. The Master bedroom is gigantic and the common spaces were very accommodating. The basement is basically just a pile of beds but that worked really well for us. The house was very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook for a large group. The fireplace was very necessary and well utilized on this cold January weekend.

The location of the house is fantastic. The resort shuttle will pick you up right by the house and take you to the lodges. We stopped in while cross country skiing for a quick break since our path took us right by the house. You have access to the members only pools and clubhouse, which included a heated outdoor pool (hot tub).

Overall, this was a great trip and we enjoyed the accommodations. Communications were seamless. Thank you!

Had a great time but home had issues

  • 2 of 5

We enjoyed our time in Bellaire and the home was very accommodating. Plenty of room for all our guests. Needed a couple more TVs. Big problem is there was ants in the master bathroom. I really grossed us out. Using the master bath was a problem.

Owner's Response: As always we value guest feedback. The ant issue is common in wooded areas of Northern Michigan and has been addressed. The amount of TV's is a personal preference (there are 2 TV's in the home) and with cable and wireless there are many options to stay connected!
