Northern Michigan Chalet Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 12.

This chalet is located in the heart of Shanty Creek's Schuss Village. Private, large wooded lot, yet just a short drive to all the action on the slopes, golf courses and pools. The kitchen has maple cabinets and solid surface counters and boasts stainless steel appliances. With cable TV in the large open living area you won't miss a minute of any game! We also have a large DVD collection and wireless internet. The front porch is a great place to grill out on a summers night or sit and watch the deer. The bathrooms are beautiful with granite and tile. You also get a two car garage, a full laundry and room for everyone in your party. You can easily sleep 12 people. There is a firepit in the front yard for everyone to gather around!

This owner also owns property in Summit Village in the resort and that allows him to use the private owners beach club on Lake Bellaire - and as his guests you can use it too!

Spring, summer and fall 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 Tom Weiskopf designed Cedar River Course, Arnold Palmers, The 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.


What to do outside the resort?: Golf 4 wonderful courses, swim, boat, use the pools and hot tubs, sightsee - 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 (Glens), some cool shops (such as Sassy Sunflower), coffee shops (Moka) and restaurants. One of our favorites is Lulu’s – and don’t miss the Bellaire Bar next door. 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.

Great house in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We do a family ski weekend every year near Shanty Creek and this was one of our favorite houses to date. Nice an roomy and very close to the slopes. The house is well stocked with everything you could need. Our only compliant is the beds are hard as a rock. I know some folks prefer firm, but these are really uncomfortable. Woke up with a back ache every day. :(

Great Weekend at the Chalet!!

  • 5 of 5

This property suited our group perfectly for a late January skiing/snowboard trip to Schuss Mountain. The house is in great condition and the layout is perfect for a medium sized group. The house location is great as it was very close to Schuss Mountain and Cedar River entrances. Jane was great to work with and very responsive to messages. Hope to return for a 2nd annual trip next year!!

Home Away From Homw

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Hett Chalet, and it definitely feels like home away from home... We keep coming back because we love it... There's tons of room, and it's open and airy... The great room is huge and has seating enough for a crowd...The bathrooms are particularly nice, and the big washer and dryer are brand new... There isn't a wood burning fireplace inside, but there a nice fire pit outside... And the house is in a great location... Can't beat it... We'll be back...

Best Ski Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous ski vacation at Shanty Creek, and one of the best things about our trip was where we stayed. We loved, loved the chalet! It truly felt like our home away from home and not at all like a rental. The chalet is new and well-kept. There are flat screen TVs in every room, and DVD players in all but one. And while the TVs in the bedrooms and den are small, we hardly noticed. There is also a big DVD collection with something for everyone. For a winter vacation, the attached garage was a godsend and having a full laundry room was tremendous. We were a party of 6 adults and 1 teenager, so there were plenty of beds. We could have slept 3 more in beds and then there was the pullout in the den and then many other foldout options. There were also tons of blankets. The chalet stayed nicely heated, and we never ran out of hot water. And one of our favorite things about the chalet was the outdoor fire pit. We had a gathering one night for friends and family, and it was a big hit. The one thing that the chalet doesn’t have is an indoor fireplace, and while it would be a nice addition, we didn’t really miss it. In short, the property was as described above and better. We all loved it! We hope to stay at the chalet again on our next visit!
