About the property

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 fire pit 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, 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, some cool shops, coffee shops (Moka) and restaurants. One of our favorites is Starlight – and don’t miss the 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.

Great weekend with family and friends

  • 4 of 5

The pictures do not give the home justice. It is very clean and spacious. There were a ton of movies and outdoor games for the kids. The home is located on a quiet corner. It made for beautiful walks through the woods.

Beautiful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for a weekend in July and everything about it was absolutely perfect! Plenty of space for all 11 of us to be comfortable. It was a hot weekend but the central air kept the house at a comfortable temperature. We spent each day on our boats on Torch Lake which was a short drive away from the house. The fire pit right out front that was surrounded by chairs when we arrived was the hangout spot during the evening. This was a first time for all of us renting a home instead of the usual campground setting. Tressia made the entire process easy and we will for sure be back!

Amazing location and excellent house!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in Schuss Mountain/Shanty Creek many times over the past few years and this was my favorite home to rent by far. The beds are super comfortable and the home is extremely accommodating. Everything you could think of, they have for you!! Will definitely be renting again.

Great property! Comfortable and clean. Everything we needed was there!

  • 5 of 5

Only complaint was taking the trash to "ivans" had no clue where it was: had to google it and drive through a very muddy parking lot. Other than that it was perfect.

Too HOT in the summer!

  • 3 of 5

We had 5 adults, ages 43-70, and 5 kids aged 7 to 11 stay for a family vacation at this lovely woodland chalet with beautiful, comfortable furnishings. The "A-frame" home would be a lovely place to rent in cooler or colder months, but, the whole place, especially the two upstairs bedrooms are HOT in the summer and the ceiling fans just push the hot air down. A portable window-vented air conditioner was not set up when we arrived and it took hours to cool the place down to 78 degrees. We kept the furnace fan and ceiling fans on and also used 4 of the 5 provided floor fans (one was not working) and had brought our own fans x 3. The only time the temp on the air conditioner registered as low as 75 degrees was early mornings, even though we had it set at 68 degrees. The bright, hot sunlight streams into the upper windows of the great room all morning.

The amenities list a king sized bed in the master bedroom, but it is just a full or queen. One of the upstairs bedrooms had the king bed and a queen bed. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker, utensils, toaster and electric fry pan. You can use the club pools as part of the rental, but we were all surprised that the swimming pool closest to the rental, about a mile away, was closed and we were directed to the one about 3 miles away at the Lakeview Resort Hotel. We received our security deposit refund within about 10 days, which we appreciated.
