Bellaire Chalet Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 9-12

Recreation is abundant, as we are located in the Schuss Mountain Village of the Shanty Creek Resorts, a major resort in the heart of Michigan's snow belt. We are steps away from skiing, golf, trails, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, restaurants, shopping etc. In addition, this cabin is also close to the Chain of Lakes, rivers, boating, swimming, beaches, fishing or canoeing. We are minutes from the major downhill ski areas of Schuss, Summit and Cedar River and five top-notch golf courses, The Chief, The Legend, Schuss, Summit and Cedar Village. This 1600 square foot cabin is cozy and comfortable with beautiful views all around. There are four bedrooms and four full bathrooms - great for families, a weekend getaway for the ladies or gentlemen or just for a couple! There is just something about this place, quiet, serene, awesome - come see for yourself.....

Are you looking to find a great place to spend your vacation? Then look no further for “Pure Michigan” winter and summer fun than here at Schuss Mountain within the Shanty Creek Resorts located in Bellaire, Michigan. Come enjoy the quiet comfort of our cabin, sitting in front of our quaint fireplace with a glass of Michigan wine or hot cocoa while the snow falls all around you. This cozy cabin offers four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a full kitchen that spaciously opens up into the dining & living room area. Use the large deck that goes around three sides of the cabin for barbeques, fires at night or just to take in the views. Also available is a two-car detached garage for your boat, snow mobiles or quads with easy access to get in and out on our circular driveway.

This home is set in a great community in the Schuss Mountain /Shanty Creek Resort area and is available for rent weekends or a week. Michigan’s Northern Wonderland offers something for everyone in your family. Here at Schuss Mountain our winter wonderland begins with the ski runs that offer thrills and excitement for all levels and age groups. We have well groomed snow mobile trails that travel for miles. Our competition cross country ski trails offers an opportunity to view some of Antrim County’s beautiful landscapes. For summer fun we are in the middle of the popular “chain of lakes” for both recreational boating & sport fishing, Bellaire offers blue ribbon fly fishing in the Cedar River.

If golfing is more your style then your dream awaits you! You can’t go wrong with your choice of challenging courses right here in the resort area: Schuss, Cedar River, The Legend, Hawks Eye and The Chief, just to name a few. There are great restaurants here in the resort area such as Ivan’s at Schuss Mountain and the Pelican's Nest or the famous Shorts Brewery in downtown Bellaire. You also won’t want to miss some of our other local favorites like Moka Cafe for gourmet coffee and delicious baked goods and the Bellaire Smokehouse white fish sausage or pate and smoked Salmon. You should also include touring the very popular Northern Michigan wineries featuring over 25 different wineries for some awesome “wine tasting.”

Beyond the resort, you will be minutes from great shopping, entertainment and casinos in the nearby Villages of Alden, Elk Rapids and Charlevoix where you can “shop” and “play”. Traverse City, Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Mackinac are also within an hour of our cabin for exciting day excursions!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our grandchildren affectionately call it the Moose House!!

We had a wonderful week of relaxation & fun. The 8 year old now plays golf and the five year old can hold her own on the driving range. We swam in Torch Lake and Lake Michigan and even enjoyed a Polish Festival in Boyne Falls.

Thank you for family friendly videos, games and our "fire pit."

P.S. Had our 3rd family baseball game on the diamond in Bellaire! We are building amazing family memories!!!

Reservation difficulty

  • 3 of 5

The place was OK but the reservation process was very painful. I had to do the payment few times and kept asking the owner if they received it, waited for the details of the property and lock info to the very last moment of my travel although the payment was processed through HomeAway.

Owner's Response: This issue resulted from us just switching to on-line booking/on-line payments with a few days before you inquired. I was trying to up-load a rental agreement to the booking process before I accepted payment and had several conversations with about how to do this. The result was I missed approving your payment which showed a hold on your credit card but no payment on my side. This was the reason for the back and forth and delays. I had to make sure the payment process was working. We have fixed these issues and have no problems with this type of booking. I still prefer the old-fashioned way of receiving checks and manually sending rental agreements but I know that does not always work for my renters. We have been renting our cabin to awesome families for 6 years now and we have never had an issue like this. I apologize that you were caught in my learning process. God Bless, George & Anna

Boy's Weekend Snowboard Trip

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was amazing! We had a party of eight and everyone had their own bed. Each room had it's own bathroom which was perfect. The cabin is only a minutes drive away from the slopes. Cabin was extremely clean and beautiful on the inside. The owners were helpful with setting up the trip. Everything we possibly needed was supplied at the cabin, so we didn't even have to contact the owners while staying there. Thank you so much!

Cross Country Ski Weekend basecamp

  • 5 of 5

This clean and well-equipped cabin was perfect for our group's cross country ski weekend. The groomed Schuss Trail System's Pine Coon Loop was "3 power poles up the snowmobile trail," so we didn't even have to pack up the car to go ski. Each of the four bedrooms has its own bathroom, which is a great feature that I hadn't seen before. It was like each of us had our own small hotel room, but with a nice living room, dining area, and kitchen where we could gather to socialize. The owners were great about responding to questions. We would definitely try to rent here again if we return to the area.

Clean Cozy Cottage. Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage easily accommodated 8 men on a golf trip. Everyone had his own bed, and there was plenty of space to lounge even while it rained all weekend. George & Anna were very communicative and always available if we needed anything. The location is great. Downtown Bellaire and Shorts Brewing are just 10 minutes away, and the golf courses are right down the road. If you're looking for a luxurious, spacious up north getaway, this isn't it. But, it's very clean, cozy, and well-maintained. The 9 beds are divided among 4 bedrooms. There are 3 bathrooms with showers, but all are inside bedrooms. There is no "common" bathroom. The kitchen is nice and the dining area has a very cool wood "picnic table". The deck and the grounds look great, but we didn't get to use them as it rained all weekend. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Family Escape

  • 4 of 5

The Cabin was very clean and well supplied for our needs. A lot of simple necessities were supplied that normally are not at other places (paper towels, napkins, paper plates, coffee, shampoos, etc...) The kitchen was well stocked and we were VERY pleased with the bedrooms and bathrooms (4!!!!). We enjoyed sledding right outside the cabin and the pools and hot tubs were a big hit with all. Everyone was very sad when it came time to leave. All nine of us want to come back again. We are definitely recommending this place to others. ( We would have given 5 stars if there had been wifi, our only regret. Everything was exactly as advertised )

Girl's Weekend Late Fall

  • 5 of 5

The girls in our family wanted to share a nice get away together, just girls and not the guys. We selected this cozy family cabin for many reasons but will be returning for so many more!

We picked this cabin because of its location, size, price and we had received a wonderful referral from a friend! We had a fantastic time!! The cabin was the perfect size for our group of 7. No one had to wait for the bathroom--since there are 4 of them! We were able to cook our own meals and found that everything we needed was already there--except of course for the food!

The cabin is beautifully decorated and extremely CLEAN!!!!! No dust bunnies, I have never stayed any place where I felt more like home!

We spent time talking, sharing and crying--it was truly a big girl's slumber party. Our family is close, but we do not all live close to one another and we needed this time together. We made ourselves right at home!

We spent a day shopping in near by towns and ate at Pearls. It was the perfect weekend and we have already made plans to return next year and hope to make it an annual event. We discussed trying new places, but we all agreed that we would not find a better place than this cabin!!!

We wanted to go in October to catch the fall colors, but we could not all gather until the first weekend in November. The colors were still brilliant--mother nature did not disappoint us--it was amazing still!

We highly recommend this beautiful, spacious and ever so quant cabin tucked in the woods! Enjoy your stay--we know you will!!
