General Info:: Shanty Creek Resort is comprised of Schuss Village, Summit Village, and Cedar River Village. all of which are within 2 or 3 miles of each other. There is very good signage to assist one in getting from one village to the other. There is nothing prettier than the October color changes in the wooded areas.
There are programs available, in both the summer and ski seasons, for young children. Child care and babysitting services are also available through the resort.
My husband and I took our boys up for a short trip to see all the sights in the area. Even before arrival Ed was more than accommodating and extremely helpful with his vast knowledge of the area and helpful hints. Upon arrive we were pleasantly surprised at this clean home stocked with anything you could need. We were a bit skeptical as there was no air conditioning in the unit and it was a HOT weekend, however with the trees in the area this unit never became uncomfortable during our stay. The pool was very close and we sure did make use of this amenity! Upon leaving I was emailed by Ed about a swim suit left behind, apparently in my haste to make sure the boys didn't leave anything I over looked mine! Ed made sure this was returned to me which I am very grateful for. Wonderful rental, excellent location and great owners, we look forward to a return trip to Schuss!
My wife and two of our children rented this property at the last minute so we were skeptical of what w might get. What we got was a spectacular property with all of the comforts of home. The townhouse has photos and memorabilia all over the walls lending to its incredible charm. We loved reading through the guestbooks that date back to the 1970's. It is evident that the owners love the place and want their guests to love it too. We took a couple of day trips to Sleeping Bear Dunes and Torch Lake that were very convenient. We didn't get to experience the pool or the lodge. We would highly recommend this property and we intend to rent there again the next time we are in the area.
I spent this July 4th weekend at Ed's cottage with my family and we had an awesome time. The property was exactly as described in the listing, very clean, well maintained. The kitchen had everything to cook a tasty meal after a long day outside. And the amazing part was the swimming pool right in front of the house!! There was also place for camp fire where we had a relaxing late evening chat!
The cottage is also at a prime location, and has a lot of attractions within couple of hour's drive (Sleeping Bear dunes, Traverse City, Torch Lake among the few)
Ed was very hospitable, a great host and was very quick in responding to any request/questions.
I would definitely recommend this place to my friends/family visiting that area.
We had a perfect winter weekend at Ed's place. It was perfect. It has a great loft space above the living area with two twin beds and a small bedroom. The kids had their space (loft) and we had ours (bedroom.) The decor is groovy and classic mid-century - the fireplace.....oh that fireplace. It has a beautiful view out the back deck to the woods, is perfectly appointed and located. We cannot wait to return for another ski weekend!
Our family of four stayed here four nights and skied at Schuss every day. The condo is a two-minute drive to the base of Schuss. There's enough room in the foyer for all your ski gear and plenty of heaters and a fireplace to dry everything off. The kitchen allowed us to make breakfast and dinner every day (we ate lunch at Ivans). The second bedroom is a loft with a tight spiral staircase. It was great for us, but something to think about if you have really young kids or anyone who is unsteady on the stairs. We would come back.
We spent New Years at this condo for the second year in a row with our three kids (ages 5, 7, and 9) and were highly satisfied. The owner takes time to ensure that you are comfortable in the condo and renting was hassle free. We've rented a couple other places in the area and like the family feel of this place the best. The snow skiing and tubing was great for the kids--it was also pretty cool to be hanging out in the heated outdoor pool while Schuss was making/blowing snow right in front of us.
Schuss Village of Shanty Creek Resort is located just off of M-88, between Bellaire and Mancelona, Michigan. From here, it's about an hour's drive southwest to Traverse City, and its nearby Leelanau Peninsula, which holds the breath-taking Sleeping Bear Dunes. You could also visit the many wineries or the casino located there. Head northward from Schuss, about an hour, to the unique towns of Charlevoix or Petoskey... or go even a little further and visit Mackinac Island for a day. Rent a pontoon boat and cruise world renowned Torch Lake... only a 20-minute drive away...or canoe the nearby Jordan River. Play one of the many beautiful golf courses in the area or do some fishing in the numerous rivers and lakes you'll find close by. Take a walk in the woods, go cross-country skiing or just relax at the pool with a book in the summer. There's so much to do!!
