Rick Schoonover purchased this house in 2002
We built our dream log home right on the nicest ski hill in Michigan.
Great for groups of people - especially if some ski and some don't; or if some golf and some don't; or if some want to sleep in and others are early risers... great home for friends and family to enjoy the beautiful Shanty Creek Resort - we overlook nothing except all of Michigan!
This house is a great find! I had never experienced ski in/ski out before and now wouldn't want anything less! It was so convenient and less stressful than packing everyone AND all the equipment in the SUV each day. The house is beautifully maintained and was clean and ready for our arrival. We were already talking about a return trip before we even left. Don't change a thing!
Very expensive but willing to rent since we were trying to make a special Christmas holiday even after mom's death.
Arrived after power outage and had to clean freezer of someone's melted ice scream. No snow but if there was it would have been perfect location. Had nice fire pit outside. Since no snow ...looking forward to hot tub. Wasn't working. Owner contacted and said he would send someone. No one came and owner avoided calls. Kids decided to swim in pool at the main lodge. When we went there, desk staff informed us that our owner failed to pay the $75 fee. Lovely place and location BUT very expensive and we also felt deceived by owner. No rebate or compensation offered. At least we had each other for the holiday and made the best of it.
Perfect multi-family ski vacation rental. We have rented this home 3-years in a row. Comfortably accommodates all of us (6-adults + 8-kids). Truly the best location at Schuss Mountain. Kids can come & go as they like while adults can join them or hang out at the bonfire slopeside. Home is well -kept and is furnished with everything we need.
Amazing location. Close to so many different events and activities. We will most assuredly return.
Gorgeous log house on perfect ski hill location. Beautiful and cozy inside with lots of sleeping space. My family & extended family were able to stay together with room & personal space. Family time has so much more quality when you all stay together.
We celebrated my mom's 60th birthday in this amazing home. The location was great -- just up the ski hill from Schuss Village yet close enough for the kids to walk down to the pool or the general store.
We used this same home for a ski trip last winter. As great as it is in the summer it's even better when the snow flies. Nothing like skiing right up to the fire pit for a hot coco.
This trip was spent playing board games around the inside fire place, cooking way too much yummy food in the gourmet kitchen, and drinking wine while soaking in the outdoor hot tub. The master suite was a great place to drink coffee and curl up with a good book on the deck overlooking the woods in the morning. And after a long day bicycling and hiking the local trails the jetted tub was just the thing that we needed!
WE loved this home in the winter, and again in the summer. We'll definitely be back!
Considered the best location at Schuss Mountain in the Shanty Creek Resort - Directly on the Ski Hill... Ski-in/Ski-out. Great Vista Views in this private wooded setting. Never get cold... the fireplace is nice even in the summer and the bathroom and walkout level floors are heated! Just a short walk to the Shanty Creek resort pool and Golf Courses.
Once you stay in our ski-in / ski-out home you will never go back to off-mountain accommodations again. Allow the early birds in your group to get on the hill for first lift up while others sleep in. Stop by for hot coco or a dip in the hot tub between runs.
Centrally located, Shanty Creek is only 20 minutes from Boyne Mountain, and 45 minutes from Traverse City. Enjoy a sunset over Torch Lake (only 15 minutes away and voted one of the ten most beautiful lakes in the world). Enjoy downtown Alden. Sail on Lake Bellaire, or collect Petoskey Stones on the Lake Michigan shoreline. Charlevoix is only 30 minutes away.
Golf: Four golf courses in the Shanty Creek Resort: The Legend, Cedar River, Schuss Mountain and the Summit. Close to Boyne's Monument, The Bear, Hawkseye, The Chief and more.
Ski: Ski-in / Ski-out home directly on Schuss Mountain's Chicken's Choice Ski Run. Best location in the resort; possibly the best ski home in Michigan!
